Well Look At That!

A service called Aerial Pros uses drones to shoot photographs and videos of all sorts of sporting venues, landscapes and events. If you CLICK HERE on their football home page it will bring up a gallery of photos leading off with this one of Dartmouth's Memorial Field at Homecoming. There are at least two other Memorial Field photos in the rotation along with a wide variety of other college and high school stadiums and practice facilities. (Caution: The slide show is kind of addictive – but thanks for the link anyway ;-)
The Worcester Telegram has a feature on Holy Cross fifth-year senior Peter Pujals, probably the best all-around quarterback Dartmouth will face this fall. The story notes that the injury against the Big Green last fall that cost him his season was a cracked lower left fibula, down by his ankle.

A couple of quick outtakes from the story:
• Pujals is one of four HC players returning for a fifth season. Running back Gabe Guild and offensive linemen Nick Piker and James Murray also will be back, and the foursome will provide great leadership.
• HC, looking to improve upon last year’s 4-7 finish, opens the season Aug. 31 at Connecticut.
Dartmouth opens its home season in Week 2 with a Sept. 23 visit from Holy Cross and Pujals.
For those of you who have stuck with BGA since the start . . .

That Certain Nittany Lion '16 geography major has turned his temporary mapping assignment into a permanent position with an industry leader. Never fear, he's still working one day each weekend at Hanover Country Club and working to keep his game sharp.

And That Certain Dartmouth '14 has just about finished the desert portion of her 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail hike. She hopes to cross the 700-mile threshold early in the coming week. Her blog is generally about a week behind, but you can follow the adventure HERE.
