    Aki Dinner

    I'm coming to Tokyo September 13-October 10 for work, the Aki basho, and the Rugby World Cup. I'm having a get-together dinner on Saturday, September 14 at 6:00PM, right after Day 7 is over. I've got a room reserved for 10 at a local chanko restaurant. So far six of us sumo fans will be coming. I have room for more. Email me at jpaitv@gmail.com or PM me here for full info and to let me know that you are coming. Many thanks, Gaijingai

    Break The Curse (The Nigate Game) Nagoya 2019

    I love this game, but just had to submit my Kosho for Aki. I'll be too busy in Tokyo to do the daily games (except Bench Sumo).

    I was going to email you that I will be kyujo this basho. I guess we all are now. Take a breather this basho and see how you feel in November.
