Hey guys, if anyone has been following my thread in the college talk tennis section you know I fractured my ankle and am out for 6-10 weeks.

RIT is on spring break and we are in Four Corners (?) Florida to play matches against some better schools to get ready for out entrance into Liberty league. We have no machine here and the place that we know is pretty damn expensive so I was wondering if there was anyone here that could help out? We are here for the next week and between the guys and the girls we have 11 matches. Just shoot me an email with details if anyone is close enough and willing to help. Kenny022593 (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks guys!

P.s. I am 1 of the stringers for the team too. That probably doesn't matter since I am an internet stranger and no one would want a stranger using their machine, but I'm just putting it out there.

hey Kenny

Just want to say good luck finding a stringer down in Orlando.

As an RIT Alum must say go Go Tigers!! Go RIT Hopefully you find someone down in Florida to help you out.

I know drakulie on these boards is from Ft. Lauderdale but I'm sure he knows the other stringers in FL on this board and if there is anyone is from Orlando

What kind of price are you looking to pay and how far are you willing to drive? Gas ain't exactly cheap these days, so you may be better off paying more but traveling less.

I really don't know, mikeler. The one club that we know is like $25-$30 labor charge. It all depends.

How far are you from Lake Cane Tennis Center? They charge $15 as does a TW competitor with a store located in the same area.

Yeah I got that. My reading comprehension (between the lines in particular) is pretty good. Somehow you managed to confused my very smart neighbor mikeler and that is something :)

Now, I suggest you say it as it is - we want stringing for free. Btw, how do you fund a whole trip with no benjamins? Just curious :)

Fire me an email Kenny. My shop is in Haines City and my usual labor charge is $20 plus tax. I will cut that in half for your college team and I am much closer to you than Lake Cane. My site (Lake Eva) is hosting several of the college spring break matches as well! I will not let you use my precious Prince 5000 stringer however!

We had to pay $400 each for the trip haha. I would never ask for free stringing, that would be a complete dick move. I hate it that I don't get paid to string for the team and I can't even imagine how a stranger would feel doing that.

You don't get paid to string for your team? That isn't standard practice, is it...?

I would like to thank Jeff (lefty10spro) on here even though I did in person yesterday. Thank you, Jeff.

I have nothing but good things to say and so do my teammates. I just can't believe he runs his shop all by himself! Thanks a lot, Jeff! The week isn't over yet though :)

In all honesty... The only place I know that we played at was Star Island. I don't know the names of the other places. They were schools though.

It depends what you define as "being a lefty." :)

Yeah it is pretty nice. At least the resort is. We haven't really gone out to see the sites.

Are you 21 or have an ID? If so let me know, and I can tell you good spots to party at night if you get bored and have some transportation.

You are actually not too far away from where I live. Enjoy the weather and the tennis.
