Snow Angels

It wasn't a record, but it was fun and a great fundraiser. Nearly 2000 people gathered on Griggs Field on the UMD campus Saturday the 9th to partake in the potential record.

Nerd Nite Duluth

Nerd Nite is a monthly-ish gathering of like-minded folks to partake in expanding their wisdom in sometimes obscure subject matter. Jeremy Nilson, Crystal Pelkey, and Adam Brisk are the alpha nerds who have just finished organizing and producing the 21st successful Nerd Nite at the Duluth Playground.

During a production, three presenters will wow a theater audience with PowerPoint presentations on subjects they might be a self-proclaimed expert in. Topics have previously included rock tumbling, number stations, who is the best Dr. Who, and how to survive a zombie uprising in the Twin Ports. Sprinkle in a game to test your nerdly knowledge as well as the always fantastic door prizes, and you have an excellent night of entertainment.

Boxing at Grandmas Sports Garden

I had the opportunity once again to photograph a night of boxing, but this time there were a number of amateur bouts on the card. To my surprize, some were a bit younger than I thought. The image you see below caught my eye in the editing, though it is not indicitive of the gutsy performance of this young lad, I just happened to capture a split second where there may have been some, shall we say, trepidation.

I call it, "Is This Really a Good Idea?"
