Hi All, If your in Socal and can make it on March 1st is a Charity poker tournament for the benefit of JDRF here is the link the information is on the left of the page.
I know money is hard it is a 25.00 buy in so if you can swing it I think it is going to be fun. If you have questions you can talk to Glenn at the skate shop and he can tell you all about there charity work.

Be well and be loved

Comment by George Simmons on December 8, 2008 at 10:56pm
I like that idea Manny.

What do you guys think if we create one group for WA, one for OR and at least a couple for CA? (Northern California and Southern California)
