Thanks to everyone who volunteered to help at the Flying Pig Marathon! We had a great time.
Our captain at Mile 19 also told us that we did a great job with crowd control (I believe she said “best ever” a couple of times) and asked us to please work with her again next year. So put the first Sunday in May on your calendar for the Flying Pig, because we’re doing it again!
It’s tournament season! So far, we’ve been to two PSP events: Galveston and Phoenix. In Galveston a new record was set for rainfall while we were there; that doesn’t even factor in the cold and wind. I prefer to think of it as the PSP Tornado.
While we were in Phoenix, they experienced a record-tying temperature high of 103 degrees. But it was a dry heat. Right.
So having survived the Flood and the Fiery Desert, we’re anticipating Tornadoes in Chicago and another Monsoon when we return to New Jersey. At the end of the season we’re going to have to do a special “survivor” t-shirt!
Oh, and if you want some paintball news, Team Fuse right now is ranked 16th in D3. I’m proud of my guys getting out there to help bring attention to the cause.
While at the Phoenix Open, I was able to talk about Ankylosing Spondylitis to a bunch of fine First Responders from the Glendale Fire Department. I shared with them that the Spondylitis Association of America has made a great video about special handling that AS patients might require upon transport by emergency workers: “Managing Patients in an Emergency Setting, a Primer for First Responders.” BTW, I’m working on bringing that video to Cincinnati, in a joint presentation with and for docs and First Responders. Stay tuned!
Next stop on the tournament circuit: Chicago.
