Tochiozan on the 29th back in Aki-city had a support event from his local koenkai with about 200 attending. Rather than congratulating to the basho results, he got some for his wedding in June and the birth of his first daughter Rin just after the start of the Aki basho. "Aim for ozeki!" was heard and thus the promise: "I also have the duty because the family has grown. I'll do my best and train hard to climb up even higher." http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASK9Y4Q0XK9YPLPB00L.html

Chiyonokuni on the 30th had an encouragement party by supporters from his old middle school judo club in Nabari-city, Mie - he was club captain.

He especially got more sujo スー女 fans (sumo girls) lately, not just the traditional koukakuka 好角家 sumo fans (to remember that, think of the kakka = Demon).  In the new year, he'll try to grab sanyaku.

with the present captain of the judo club

A support event today for rikishi with university background at a hotel in Osaka. Yoshikaze, Takasago-oyakata etc. were there, but in the focus is: Osaka local makushita Ura

This year it was on the 28th, with Takasago- and Isegahama-oyakata (Asahifuji) and about 50 of the 72 active rikishi with university background - 400 guests, ordinary fans included. 26 of the 70 sekitori are in this category, more than the 17 foreigners. Ura is no longer one, replaced as sekitori technician by Enho - no mention if the 2 were there. http://www.nnn.co.jp/dainichi/news/180305/20180305027.html
