Ultimate Frisbee Halloween Hat Tournament
Saturday, October 27th, 2012 was our annual Halloween Hat Tournament for our ultimate frisbee group (IAUA). It started out gray and drizzly, but became decent (not sunny, but not cold or wet). People came out, in costume, we played and had fun. Also, I wanted to test drive a 500mm telephoto lens I was borrowing. Fortunately, Jeff brought a tripod.
