Lincoln Leon Football Game

Gene Cox Stadium

441 Paul Russell Road, Tallahassee, FL 32301

In the evening after Bhanu came from work, we all three headed to Gene Cox Stadium at the North Florida Fairgrounds to attend the Lincoln and Leon high schools season football game. Our friends at the Tally TKD had informed us about the football game lastnight after VTS’s black belt award ceremony and we arrived at the stadium little past 7 PM. We paid the ticket amount of $6/person. We met our friends and took our seats on the Lincoln side of the stadium around 35 yard line.

Due to some power problems the stadium lights didn’t come on until around 7:30 PM (after the Lincoln Band started to play) and the game went well. The quarters were 12 minutes long and by the end of the second quarter the Lincoln Trojans had scored impressive five touchdowns and extra points to a score of 35 to the Leon score of 3.

We then watched the Leon high school band play. They have been invited to play in London 2013. With full lights on the Leon band perfromed many nice routines. The Leon football game came from the half and scored a touchdown and made Lincoln fumble the ball once.

Since Bhanu had work early and VTS and I had to attend Saturday morning physics we all left with score of 35-10 in the middle of thrid quarter. In all it was a fun.

Downtown Tallahassee, FL

A bunch of volunteers took some time off (I took half-day off) and came to Chain of Parks in Downtown Tallahassee. We had reserved Bloxham and Lewis parks for our eighth annual Experience Asia Festival 2012. So we started the site preparation for tomorrow’s event.

The first thing we did was to measure the site and started to mark areas for foods, arts and crafts vendors on the Lewis Park. Then we measured and marked the area for ACT members and information booths on the Bloxham parks. One set of volunteers measured and other set of volunteers tied brightly colored threads to mark the stall and open space between them. Another set of volunteers went around affixing the numbers that corresponded to the vendors and members.

Around 7 PM we were done and we all went home.

Breast Cancer Awareness Day

Thursday, October 04, 2012


Today it was Breast Cancer Awareness Day in Tallahassee. So everyone who could wear pink color wore pink dresses, pink shoes, and even today’s Tallahassee Democrat paper was printed in pink color paper.

Bhanu wore pink blouse and I wore pink shirt.
