Tonight I did my Virtual Bowl-A-Thon on the Wii. I bowled two games in an effort to raise money for the Niemann-Pick Childrenâ€™s Fund. Dina Riccobono of Market Leverage encouraged me to do this since I could not make it to the event that they held down in Florida. So, I was there in spirit. I did pretty well too. You can watch the recorded video from Stickcam, which shows the games as they are played.
I also created a video after and during the bowling.
It was fun, I wish that there were people in the chat room that I could talk to between each frame or each game but that is okay. What I really hope is that people will sponsor me at $0.10 a pin per game. I bowled a 181 in Game 1 and a 191 in Game 2. It must have been something about bowling for charity because that was the best I’d bowled in a long time and I even made (Pro) in Wii Bowling after Game 1. So if you’d like to donate $18.10 for Game one or $19.10 for Game two or even $37.20 for the whole night then please go directly to The Niemann-Pick Childrenâ€™s Fund Donation page. (You could round things up 🙂 I won’t tell 🙂 )
The other part of this was that I sent down some hats and some calendars to give as door prizes to the people who participated. I even sponsored Tim Jones on Team Affiliate Summit. I hope that he did well. His team came in second overall so that is great to hear.
Here are a couple more of the photos I took using the intervalometer while I bowled.
I can’t believe how trim I look in this shot, camera angles I guess.
I thought the White Man Overbite was just for dancing.
You Are Going To Take A Trip To The Seaside
I look at this one and think, well, duh, we go to the Cape every summer and actually will probably start going soon to get the house ready. But I’ve been thinking about going to get my kayak soon so that I can go out on the weekends with my friend Keith from Ten Mile River Watershed Council. I want to help do some river clean ups and film some Wired Kayaker videos.
For a while I had a blog called The Wired Kayaker. I would go on my kayak and make videos and post them, you can see all 6 of them by clicking on them on the sidebar. I decided to get rid of that blog and incorporate those posts into this blog. You can see all of those posts by looking through the Wired Kayaker category. I noticed that I hadn’t been updating that blog and that kayaking was pretty seasonal so in the winter I lost interest because I wasn’t on the water. I also figure that I shouldn’t separate that part of me to a different blog. This is the blog that people read to see what is going on with me and my kayak adventures certainly are things that go on with me.
This Fortune Made Me Think of My Xacti
I made my 1st Wired Kayaker video (podcast) using my Sanyo Xacti C4. This was not a waterproof camera like my Sanyo Xacti EC1. You’ll be hearing more about Sanyo Xacti these days because Sanyo/Fisher contracted some pretty big name YouTube personalities and gave them some of the new cameras. These are HD still/video cameras that are waterproof. These would be perfect cameras for my Wired Kayaker videos (podcasts). I wonder if Sanyo would like to sponsor the podcast?
Here are the new Sanyo Models.
