Tomorrow is the start of the fall fundraising season. Tonight, there was a "friends and family" event for the contract workers who are the bulk of our event staff. While it's a nice little perk for the employees, the ticket giveaway also allowed us to perform a "dry run" with a friendly audience so we can determine if there are any potential snags that would affect the real event.

Right now, there is a small army of technicians on the property, putting the last touches on the event grounds and battening down the hatches, because the weather is supposed to get foul. We lucked out with the weather last year... can't win them all.
To compound the nuttiness of my day, I am planning on heading down to Manhattan for the first day of the Saturday morning coaching gig. I have my gym bag packed, and plan on leaving the house after catching a couple of hours of sleep. I figure I can map on the crash pads in the dojo when we don't have students present. It's going to be a nutty, nutty day- I already have a pot of coffee set up for brewing tomorrow morning. Dear departed Uncle Warren wrote the theme song for this time of the year:
