    way to go Shcmad on the semi-celeb booking. Saturday/Sunday meeting should be a good turn out.

    5th meeting important

    hi MAC

    forgot to do this earlier: if you have not voted please do so because this meeting is going to be a special one(and not because i am serving), and so i need to let the special guest know ahead of time of the day and time so he can make proper arrangments. thank you.

    Whatever he said.

    Come on fellow members! Vote or die. Just kidding. I'm no P. Diddy.

    Zapvor, if nobody else casts votes, then I personally think we should aim for Saturday 3PM at either Jefferson District or Wakefield.

    What locations do YOU want, zapvor? I don't mind either Jefferson or Wakefield.

    Once location is decided, do you mind sending "our semi-celebrity guest" an e-mail with the details of our meet? Thank you.

    That's awesome! You should either e-mail zapvor at mitidor@gmail.com or just show up at one of our meetings. Zapvor organizes the meetings, so it'd be nice to have you on his listserv.

    We are supposed to have a meeting tomorow at 3PM in Wakefield Park (Annandale, VA). However, I have no idea why zapvor decided to cancel since weather.com is not predicting rain or extreme heat. Just stay tuned.

    EDIT: By the way, I love your avatar. I wish Safin were in full form nowadays like he was during the '05 Aussie Open.

    oh i thought because of the storm that went past NoVa earlier this evening. is it dry there?

    edit: i have been informed that it is nice and dry there now, so the meeting is back on! my being MD is causing misinformation. thanks to Shcamad our dedicated trusted weatherman

    You're welcome.



    Not.

    On a more serious note, I'll post the pictures a little bit later tonight or tomorrow morning. There aren't that many though. However, some of them are proof that zapvor's serve does indeed look like John McEnroe's.

    5th meeting reflections

    So just got back from the meeting. we ended going at it for 6 hours. because we are hardcore like that. some quick highlights:

    -sup2dresq buying the entire gatorade supply in the vending machine
    -pureprestige turning into roddick with babolat in hand. his forehand was ridiculous.
    -shcmad adding about 8oz of lead to his racket half way through the day
    -me sucking as usual

    but best highlight? sup2dresq busted out his radar gun. oh yea baby.
    lets just say that...what the heck i will tell it all:
    sup2dresq-too fast for radar to pick up "error'
    shcmad- 13mph (after about a dozen tries)
    pureprestige-easily clocking over 100mph a handful of times. and not with a babolat,mind you
    me-breaking the 25mph barrier baby!

    also new member joined today! all in all fantastic meeting, thanks to all for coming.

    Surprisingly, you broke the 50mph barrier.

    And...OY! That's not funny. I broke the 80 mph barrier on my first try. Not 13. Not funny, zapvor.

    hahahhaa. my best was 66?but did it even go in. the one i knew that went in was 49:(

    yea but that was before sup2 calibrated the radar; the 80 was due to the error calibration.;)

    EDIT: By zapvor's request, all pictures of him serving were taken down. Unfortunately, 50% of the pictures I took today were of him serving.
