fools west followed by fools fest.

last weekend was in santa cruz for fools west.
gorgeous fields overlooking the city and Monterey Bay…

Drove out with some awesome slackjaw girls, and split time with them and some zeitgeist kids. had some great games with both – the teams were so different but so much fun. slackjaw was mostly kids my age – recent grads from berkeley, stanford and davis – and the team was pretty big. bomb squad was with melanie and hammer and some zg / fury / godiva girls, and i had such a good time playing with them. both teams mostly rolled the competition, but the hardest game of the day came with slackjaw against downtown brown – a whole team of asians(!!!) and a whole lotta squirrelliness. talk about pain.
got a call the movers would be coming sunday and had to leave sat afternoon and go back to sf, so i missed the rest of the tourney. despite losing by a large margin to dtb on saturday, slackjaw came back against them on sunday and won the tourney! just wish id been there to help out!

sunday was insane with the movers (i’ll save that for a whole different post.) but the week flew by and before i knew it, i was banking in van pelt on a thursday afternoon (see previous post). friday – sun morning i was in fredericksburg for fools with the surrogate fam.

some highlights:

seeing everyone i love one last time!
