RUC2004 - Day 3 - Rooting Tooting Shooting Good Time

Well with a title like that I really don't have much to add. I spent the night with a bunch of Canadian's from Toronto who all worked for one of the other major FI. Look out Abe, now I have contacts :)
The food was great, the beer cold, and I got to ride a mechanical bull twice, sadly my best time was about 14 seconds, and thats only because my iron ring got caught in the rope and nearly ripped my finger off keeping me on. The group of us also played some black jack, and armadillo racing. To those canuk's like me, armadillo racing is exactly what you think it, take a couple of armadillo's put them in the hands of some crazy tourists, and then when the start gun goes, you drop your squirming armadillo into its track and they run to the end. There were also trail rides, but by the time I got there, they were already all full up for the night, and you could get your photo taken on a texas long horn (aka a big ass bull!) Gun fights pervaded the streets, but I think the guns had blanks, because there were not nearly enough bodies to match gun shots. So it was a good time, these IBM boys know how to throw a good time!
