Thumbs Up!

I managed to chop the end off of my thumb the other day, while giving an onion a chopping of a lifetime!

Several litres of blood and a hospital trip later and it was all fixed! Thanks to all the nurses in the Yeppoon Hospital!

It's put a dent into my Volleyball/Xbox career for the moment, and typeing kinda suck with one hand, but at least it's getting better.

Speaking of volleyball, the venturers played last night, and were beaten again, however they managed to put in a respectable performance. In a month or two I think we'll be right up there!

Pinefest 2004

This weekend was the closing weekend of the annual Pine Festival. It's a celebration of not only pinapples, but the contribtions of various groups and people to the community.

Then Venturers and I dropped in on the celebrations on Sunday morning, and spent some time looking around at the markets on the shorefront, and then watched the parade as it wound through town. The floats we made by the various community groups, though unfortunately the Scouts weren't represented. Maybe next year.

Anyway, it was a good morning, the weather was great as usual, and it looked like everyone had a great time.

Big Cajones

The Venturers have recently decided to enter a Beach Volleyball league, held in ROcky on Thursday nights.

Last night we had our first game, and man did we suck...For the first half of the match anyway. Though we didn't come anywhere near winning the game, we did see some good improvement by the end of it all. After a bit of practice this weekend, we should be able to start stringing together a few hits and start being competitive.

According to our program, we're playing the bottom team on the ladder (excluding us and another new team) so who knows, we might be in with a chance. If you're really motivated and want to follow the league (sorry not tipping at the moment) then you can check it out at the CitiBeach Website. We're in the Thursday Night 4-a-side, Division 2, and will be called the Big Cajones, though currently for some wierd reason, we're Peter's Team.
