I had the pleasure of speaking to a lively crowd at Ignite Raleigh 3 on February 16th on my favorite subject besides 5 Bucks is Change, “Fringe Sports and Odd Pursuits”.  As a collector of new experiences and a cheerleader for small nonprofits, events and organizations I often find new and unusual activities to try, events to attend and sports to play.  A few years ago I would share “what I did last weekend” my friends. So many of them said they regretted not knowing my cool activity that I created an e-list to let them know what I was up to in case they wanted to join me. Now I look for the fun and unique events happening in the Triangle area and pass the word.

The subject of my Ignite Raleigh 3 talk was sharing some of those experiences.  Since there will be a YouTube recording available of the presentation in the future I won’t go into detail here. But I did promise to provide links to all the events, activities and sports that were featured.
