    9.0 mixed districts was in Winchester last year...and the team had an outing there after our first match! Always recommended to go to a winery during a tournament! ;)

    There are *many* vineyards out that way, so you should have plenty to choose from...and they are close enough you can do more than one in a day.

    Got my last singles match tonight and feeling good about it. Has anyone one else tried Luxilon Savage? I think I am making the switch to this. I've played both the lime and white version twice and love them both. Not as pricey as BB Alu Power and lasts longer in my opinion.

    Hit up Leesburg. Its relatively near alot of the VA tt folks.

    I heard there's a really nice restaurant near there too. But when i am around Sterling i always goto Cherry Blossom Kabob Buffet. There ground beef kabobs and sides aee really tasty. Two racquets up.

    Hope you did a good job on the conversion! I LIVE there (and hate it) but the HOV lanes are temporary due to the PanAm Games and Rogers Cup, but then again, ANY EVENT (Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, Raptors, whatever) almost freeze the ENTIRE city... it's extremely annoying & difficult to even leave HOME, or get around, and I live less than 3 miles west of the CN Tower.

    Currency conversion was nice. I got 1.33 cad to 1 usd. I was there 4 yrs ago before my last visit and i don't remember traffic being so bad. Toronto's aquarium is nice. It was well worth my $30 per person admission ticket. The walk in fish bowl is the best.
    I hated Gardner Expressway. That tunnel overpass in the city is a mess. Reminds me of LA roads. Signs are useless. They tell u the next road less than 1/2 mile before you get there. Was thankful sometimes for traffic jams else i will miss the roads.

    And drank so much Molson and Labatt. Its so much better than Bud here.

    I've heard Thai Basil is good.

    I know downs was on a Thai by Thai kick for a while.

    Can someone explain how tri-level league works? I see it is coming up soon. Our combo league ended on a note where my team had to default all courts due to lack of availability/interest.
    I take tri is a team with 3 levels (i.e. 3.5, 4.0, 4.5) but how do matches work? How many courts are played and how is it divided amongst the levels? Or maybe I am off base with my assumption.

    Its actually simple. There are 3 courts per match: a 3.5 court, a 4.0 court, and a 4.5 court. Best 2 of 3 courts wins the match. So, you can have a strong 3.5 & 4.0 line, but weak 4.5 and win every match.

    Players are allowed to play up 1 level (e.g. you may have a 3.5 player on the 4.0 court), but not two levels.

    i like Bethesda and Mclean alot nowadays. Easy acces to DC, safe area, good schools, stable property value.

    that seems a little too established for my liking. I'm thinking further out. I don't need more access to DC.. think i'm ready for the country and mtns + chicken coop

    Sounds like you want to to live in Darlington MD. Plenty of room for chicken coops.

    Closer to DC i don't know about VA side but areas around Port Tobacco might be OK. I know Nanjemoy is pretty country, but its a tough drive to DC

    Ashburn is expanding at an exponential rate. No much farm land out there any more. Need to go farther out west. Leesburg? Warrenton maybe?

    west virginia is good too and even in mechanicsburg. Pretty of land and available MTA that goes into the city in case sappy still needs to go to his free lunch tech conferences.

    chicken coop maybe overkill. need to be decently close to DC for free lunchies and working corners.
    some place that can house my glorified cloth hanger...
