I’m off to Helena, Montana today for Saturday’s game. Although it sounds funny to say the opening game is a big one, this one between SOU and Carroll is important. The team that wins will likely be ranked #1 in the country until they lose.

Today’s photo is from last season’s game in Ashland. SOU won that one. In fact, SOU is a perfect 2-0 vs. Carroll when I am present. Hopefully, I can say 3-0 by the end of September 5 and 4-0 after October 17.

I had a free day in the San Francisco Bay Area this past Thursday. Initially I thought I’d catch the Cubs-Giants game. However, only horrible seats remained, and the Giants had jacked up the prices to ridiculous levels.

As it so happened, the brand new Southern Oregon Men’s Soccer team were playing their second ever game in the area so I went to it instead. Turns out that was a great decision as SOU won, and the Cubs lost (I hate the Giants), so I got to drive home happy and with an extra $150 or so in my pocket.

The Raiders have four more games on the road before playing their first game in Ashland on September 18. It’s too early to get too excited, but their currently 2-0 team of mostly freshmen and no seniors may surprise some people.

Until last year I only shot in RAW for difficult lighting conditions. Now I only shoot in RAW, even for outdoor sports. Yesterday I was on the road, without a computer, so I shot in both RAW and jpg. I sent some jpgs in for quick publication, and they showed up in places like here and here.

Back on my computer today I had the chance to process the same RAW files.

Last summer I taught in Guanajuato, Mexico for SOU’s MiM program. One MiM student from Ashland traveled to Mexico to take the class. The Mexican students got to thinking that they should do what that Ashland student did and take a MiM class in Ashland. So this summer most of my class from last summer came to Ashland and took a class. On their off day we went to Crater Lake.

The SOU volleyball team ran their record to 4-0, including a defeat of another ranked team today. Previously 3-0 Hastings (ranked #22) was the first team to take the Raiders to five sets, but in the end Southern Oregon prevailed. Laura Morse had 8 digs, 7 kills, and a .462 hitting percentage in the earlier victory over Bellevue.
