Americas Cup 2013 San Francisco
After much quarrel and debate between the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and the America's Cup Event Authority (ACEA), which is responsible for the commercial side of the 34th America's Cup, the 34th America’s Cup will begin in San Francisco in late August.
The dates for this year’s (2012) racing for the America’s Cup World Series, the global circuit of events leading up to the September 2013 America’s Cup regatta in San Francisco, are as follows:
- AC World Series Naples, Italy – April 11-15, 2012
- AC World Series Venice, Italy – May 15-20, 2012
- AC World Series Newport, USA – June 26 – July 1, 2012
- AC World Series San Francisco, USA – August 21-26, 2012
- AC World Series San Francisco, USA – October 4-7, 2012
The America’s Cup is the oldest active trophy in international sport. The America’s Cup is awarded to the winner of the America's Cup match races between two yachts. One yacht, known as the defender, represents the yacht club that currently holds the America's Cup and the second yacht, known as the challenger, represents the yacht club that is challenging for the cup.
Some of the notable figures in the sport include Brad Butterworth who is a world-renowned yachtsman known for the role he played as tactician and skipper in the America's Cup for Team New Zealand and the Alinghi team of Switzerland. Another world renowned sailor is Sir Russell Coutts, his achievements include a Gold medal in the Finn Class in the 1984 Olympic Games, and winning the America's Cup four times. He has a perfect record in America's Cup racing with 20 wins to 0 losses.

|GoPro Cameras Now in Stock |
GoPro cameras give athletes the ability to record their tricks, stunts and skills via helmet cameras, chest mounts and handlebar mounts. The-House.com has all the cameras and accessories in stock now!
My friends in the TV and Film business use these for their shoots and say they work better than some of the more expensive cameras they use. They are tough and don't break easily, they also give you steady video. They are quite amazing.

Customization in the Golf Industry
Over the past 5 years, the United States Golf Association (USGA), has imposed tough restrictions on golf club design, limiting the size, spring effect and now grooves in an attempt to rein in what they perceive as game altering technology. The argument for or against their position can be saved for another day, but the result of these limits has been making waves in the golf industry. If you ask the CEOs of the top 5 golf companies, "Has the USGA's restrictions on golf club design helped or hurt your business?" invariably, the answer would be "hurt". But to others the new regulations do not hurt, in fact, they help.
In the first 1/2 of this decade, Golf manufacturers worked hard to keep up with the advances in golf technology. It seemed that every year there was a new manufacturing barrier to be crossed, a new material that had to be integrated and the performance bar was ever being drawn farther and farther down the fairway. Now that the pace of technology in the golf industry has slowed somewhat, it is easier to manufacture equipment that performs as well or better than clubs purchased in the most prestigious pro shops.
Still 98% of the golf equipment purchased in the US is off the rack or standard. So if technology is not advancing the way it once did, what is the next performance break through? Certainly, it is customization. In a 2008 article on playing your best golf a major golf publication reported, "....customization may be the last and least know frontier in the golf equipment industry. Manufacturers that will be successful in the coming decades will embrace a customer-centric approach to fitting the golfer for improved play."

SOCCER SPORTS CAMP
In the summer of 2009 I took these photographs of the wonderful sports camp at my local University. I use a fun little blue colored VGA Carabiner Camera made by Argus called the bean sprout. It was a fantastic day and everybody was in a great mood. It seemed like there was about 400 or 500 people at the event.
I like to watch girls play soccer. I mostly like Big Ten Soccer, the girls here ranged from about 5 years old up to about 13 years old. They were highly energetic and were all having such a good time. It helped that the weather was really good and there weren't really any negative parents or coaches.
I highly recommend that everyone check out your local community for fun sports camps, youth leagues or anything that is fun and safe for young people to get involved with. These camps provide the kids with memories that last a lifetime.

Hi, it has been a long time since I have been able to post a new story. I have been so busy with work and everything else, you know how it can get.
There were quite a few stories I wanted to cover over the last year or two; ranging from the death of Evil Knievel, to the news of Joe Torre becoming the manager of the Dodgers.
Who could forget about Michael Phelps in Beijing 2008 when he broke all the Olympic records, and I just had to say how much I enjoyed watching the Winter events in Vancouver over the past months of 2010.
