Seal skinz hat. Waterproof and sunproof for your bald head and no brim so it won't fly off. Then stick some sunglasses and sun cream on your face.

Turn the hat backwards, or use a hat without a "sunroof"....

Well when the first one flew off I did practice my MOB drill, but the second one flew off when I was chasing everyone RIOW - no way was I going to stop then

I'm finding that my undercrackers give me a wedgie in anything above a F5. Can anyone recommend any suitable grundies for ribbing? :-)

Surely you could just tie your hat on to your LJ? Easy with baseballs, less so with a bucket hat. So wear a baseball. Problem has existed since man first set foot on boat wearing hat and sunnies for that matter!,
