We also need street team people in other cities that obviously we can't get to.

What part of Ohio are you from? I'm heading to Canton later this year.

i just emailed the happy badger. we'll see if it works out... maybe you can email them too and bug them.

i always seem to have a hard time booking in ohio, even though everyone says it's such a great state to play in cuz there are so many college kids.
