Last chance to renew your SMA membership before the rates go up

Attn South Main Association members:  Have you renewed your dues yet for 2010?  I just renewed mine.  Tomorrow, Sunday 1/31 (edit: I had my dates mixed up and thought today, Saturday, was 1/31 when I first posted), is the last day to do it before the rates increase from $25 to $35 for an individual membership.

You can renew online with a credit card through PayPal.  Click here to renew.

I took the netbook to the Saucer and got some poker in yesterday afternoon.  I should’ve left it at home.  I entered four $13 No-Limit Hold’em Sit’n’Go turbo 6-max tournaments, and I lost three of them and finished second in the fourth, leaving me down $27 for the day on tournaments.  I also managed to lose money at Hold’em, Omaha/8 and Stud/8 cash games.  I’m still in the learning stage and I look at my losses as tuition paid to the Academy of Poker, but tuition sure was expensive yesterday.

What an icy mess outside.  Out my window I can see Second and Monroe.  Monroe is totally iced over and is a scary brown color.  One lane of Second is clear.  Looking at the forecast, temperatures may well remain below freezing until Monday morning, which makes me think rush hour could be a dangerous situation.

But that’s Monday.  Today’s Saturday.  Time for a beer… oh, wait, I’m up too early, bars aren’t open yet.
