31st IOSF set for West Lafayette

The 31st International Othersports Festival will be held Aug. 31-Sept. 3 in West Lafayette, Indiana. There is a a Purdue home football game that Saturday, so those of you needing accommodations may want to make arrangements ASAP. A list of possibilities follows.

Bowling is scheduled for after the football game so you may attend the game if you would like. The Purdue Athletic Ticket Office would undoubtedly sell you as many seats as you want. The opponent is Eastern Kentucky University, nickname the Colonels, whose mascot looks distinctly like a certain fried chicken restaurant franchise founder, albeit a version who's been eating a lot of factory farm fowl pumped up with steroids. This is all true. A special event will be scheduled during the game for those not attending. Miniature golf, at an exciting new venue, will be Sunday afternoon. Opening ceremonies will be Friday night as usual.

More details in an IOSF Tattler to follow. (Production delay due to ongoing restructuring discussions. The t-shirts have been printed, however.)
