Santa Cruz pulls out a win against Sac City 99 to 130 in the season opener at home. Santa Cruz looks quite a bit more polished than last year at this time.  They've actually bouted against Sin City in Vegas and played in a tournament two weeks ago before this weekend's bout. Last year, their home opener was their first bout of the season and it showed.  They seemed a bit rusty at last year's season opener.

Last year, I remember feeling like the focus rings on my lenses had rusted.  I felt better about the cameras this time around.  All the digital shots with the rangefinder I shot without flash (just like the old days!).  And I shot two rolls of green slime film with the trusty CV Bessa R3A (a film rangefinder with 1:1 "magnification" in the viewfinder.  One of these days I want to shoot some green slime film with my medium format folder, but I thought I should stick to something familiar for the first bout of the home season.

Now for some photo highlights. You know where to go for the full set.
