    Have we decided on the courts and date yet? Anyway, who is interested for this Thursday? We can at least have a small meet. Just don't forget to bring your game face.

    My vote:

    Reston, Wakefield, or Thomas Jefferson are my votes.

    Sunday morning works best for me with an occasional Wednesday thrown in when I don't have soccer.

    Heading to the DC United game this Thursday, so I can't do Thursday this week.

    BTW - zapvor, you might want to try and manage these meets using evite. That's how I keep track of my soccer team that I manage.

    Doing Okay Chris, what's happening with you?

    I got some singles in on Sunday morning, but it turned into doubles when my hitting partner's father showed up. I was up 3-1 in the set we were playing. I was glad to find someone to hit with on a last mintue notice. I got a good work-out when it switched to Canadian Doubles.

    I see you and Joe busted out the camera. Me and the camera don't get along. I still have the DVD to prove it. ;)

    Sorry boys...got a match Thursday.

    My vote is for Wakefield anytime though...I live about 10 minutes away. So, again, a purely selfish vote, too.

    your votes are greatly appreciated. all of us are motivated by selfish interest anyways.

    so... looks like thursday is no go?

    edit: ok just checked my email. so far sunday is the clear winner. i count 4 votes for sunday. wed/tues/thurs are runner ups. let's confirm for sunday here, then we can settle on location next?

    No problem. I'll send you a link to evite.

    BTW- Just an idea guys. Our TW events don't always have to be at one place or day and set up by one person. For example, one week, we could host a TW event out in reston, then the following week, another memeber could host one at Wakefield for example. We could set them up ahead of time and keep them rotating.

    Hey guys,

    so we are shooting for a small meet on thursday! So far i think its Patrick, MrHan who are interested, so if there is someone else i will sign up too so we can do doubles with even number of people. or 2 singles. whatever you guys prefer.

    I'll be there too... I'll try my best to sneak out at 4 p.m. Just like the game Peter plays with his Boss Bill Lumberg in the movie Office space. Otherwise, I'll still be there only later.

    Sunday

    From the votes it looks like Sunday was the winner. So this Sunday we are going to have our official first meeting! I do not believe a set location and time has been determined. Thank to James, I will be sending you an evite, so look for it in your email. Thanks. Also, if you like to come, but Sunday is not good for you let us know! (some of you never voted)

    Hey everyone Zapvor sent out an evite for our first meeting. Make sure to respond so we know how many people will attend.

    I am hopiong I can make it, but I may have some guests flying in on Sunday.

    BTW- for those who may want to see a top junior player in action, Jared Pinsky, the #2 ranked Boys 18 junior, is playing in the Reston Open this weekend.

    Well, it was a lot of fun. Patrick is a nice player and made me break out a sweat (actually I was sweating like a pig and tried not to breathe so hard on the change overs). We played 3 sets and there were some points where I felt like cramping but did my best to hide it. Yes, I am a fat slob and out of shape. Time to hit boot camp!

    And oh... no pictures from today. We didn't have at least 3 people so 2 could play and rotate while one would take the pictures. You know who you are ;)

    han is a very solid player, his kick serve was wicked and very difficult to handle and has a good all around game. as he said we played 3 sets and in case you were wondering the score was 6-2, 6-3, 6-1.

    plus there was some loud guy there that was getting very annoying.

    What was up with the loud guy?

    Zapvor,

    I'd love to bring the guests, but trying to get some people on the court after a long plane ride won't work.

    I'll see how things go.

    Do we have a definite time and place? The earlier the better I think.

    hans lefty kick is one of the nastiest i have ever encountered.

    about the loud guy.... it was some guy who was on the court next to us and he was trash talking the people he was playing with and saying that they needed to step up or something, and the funny part is he wasnt even that good himself. and he even blamed me and han for spilling juice on the court which we didnt. he was like why did you guys spill juice and we said umm we didnt spill it, we just got here.
