Hi, just went to sport park today and had a great time. Unfortunately, I left my sunglasses at the bottom of Chasing Sticks. We left around 3:00 and I was wearing a blue shirt (that is admittedly too tight)so if you want to return them my number is 530-219-9140 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
I can swing by your house, meet you at the crag or buy a couple of beers to pick them up.
Edit: They are black Smith Stance Sunglasses.
