    If you didn't want to pay, why did you suggest it?

    I'm not a member there either, I'm playing someone who is.

    I don't know the area, so pick some courts where we can play, then post a google map of the location so I can meet you.

    Wow.. lots of requests for a tennis meet.

    I'll organize this one meet with one condition.

    In 48 hours I want the following people to post from their account a picture of their:

    TFM: Nose
    Alice: Hair
    Shcmad: Head of Hair (including forhead)
    Xisbum: Mustache
    JRStriker: Smile
    Topaz: Left Eye
    Hollywood: Nose
    Dats: Right eye
    Zapvor: Chin
    PPL: Face Cheeks
    Sappy: Neck

    I figure 48 hours ends Friday 5pm. If we post the pics then lets get a meet together. All pictures must be received.

    Figure the meet can take place with optimal time before the summer ends. Maybe the second week of August on a Saturday. Dates still TBD.

    p.s. Happy birthday Dats. May you get what's coming to ya! Now go mow the lawn again. Drove up Carlin Springs from kenmore today and hit the stop light in front of your backward fence. Saw you mowing..

    Auzzie - Where art thou?

    Sup - That guy Dave, is he in the clinic that you run? Also, he should join the MAC if he is looking for people to hit with.

    Xisbum - I'd be down to hit Saturday morning, depending on location.

    I have a feeling all of these body parts are going to be put together for one big TWMAC Frankenstein.

    I present to you, in keeping the faith of TWMAC and the hope for El Jefe's return, my left eye!

    tooopaz! that lacoste dress came today, and :( the fit is awkward. the dropped waist is too low (like below my hip bones), and the skirt is poofy at the hips (good for storing an extra ball...or four). i'm sending it back, but want me to hold on to it for a bit for you to try on?

    Hmmm, thanks, but even if it fit, I can't afford it. :( I'm not buying anymore tennis apparel...need to save my pesos.

    Now, post that haircut...I wanna see the new 'do!

    Alice, this is good for a mini meet, but if we are doing a full on get together we need a place for food and seating and courts that can be reserved. Given that, its too late to organize a full meet for this weekend anyway.

    See below; Allie wants to switch to some place near Baltimore, but I am fearful of I95, the Chisholm Trail of the East Coast. We can hit around here if no body picks a decent close place in MD. I don't really want to drive to Baltimore, even to see the Woodman take Allie's tennis mummies to the rack. HeHe.

    Caught me in a fib. :oops: Should have said almost anywhere. This won't mean much to you, but the guys will understand - made a pledge a long time ago to avoid Baltimore until the Baltimore Colts play another game there or Brooks plays another game at the hot corner.

    Can't you MD peeps come up with a place close enough to attract TheJRK? He wants to hit Saturday but won't drive 500 miles as I would.

    why would i be planning a "full on get together?" x said someone should make a decision about this weekend. so i made a decision. are you able to play? if not, we can change the date to sunday, when hw can make it.

    but per your suggestions, i've left messages with the frederick county dept of recs & the wilde lake tennis center (in columbia) about reserving courts for a meat-meet.

    I think its time we had a full meet somewhere (meaning Virginia and MD peeps with food and beer!). Its been a long time. I thought we were starting to discuss that earlier this week. That is what I was offering up Severn Valley for. I won't get those good court rates for a small group.

    Alice -
    I can play Saturday morning and I would be fine with the Howard high school courts.

    you were planning on driving to odenton. odenton is practically the shores of the chesapeake bay. columbia = closer for you

    probably not, since his threshold seems to be 20 minutes, and it takes longer than that to drive 5 miles in arlington. 5 miles wouldn't even get you to the maryland line. but there's woodley park. 20 miles from arlington. 30 miles from wonderland. and as much as i'd like to get my hands on the jrk's youtek demos, i'm ready to throw in the towel. why don't you and jrk just play in va on saturday?

    alice, xis, and nitefly, I can play on sat or sunday. I am willing to play in MD or VA if JRK or HW need a location that is closer.

    You guys don't have to plan a mini-meet around me... I was just wondering where/when everyone was meeting this weekend. I thought you guys had already picked a time/location and I was just wondering what the details were.

    I don't expect MD peeps to come to the VA mini-meets we have and vice-versa, that's why it's a mini-meet. Now, the full blown MAC-meet is an exception to the rule, which I will exceed my 30-mile radius. :)

    Wait a minute, I thought the red vehicle you ride in was a golf cart... KEKE J/K!


    Xis and TheJerk, I'm interested in hitting Saturday (depending on time and location) if you guys don't mind me joining. To make it an even number, I can attempt to persuade PP to join us, if you guys wish.

    Fine by me. Since we met at my "home" court last weekend, we can meet on JRK's turf this time. What say you, Mr. JRK?

    And please don't bite my head off. Once a day is enough. :oops:

    If you can get to downtown b-more from that high school, like I can get to dc from my place in 10 minutes or less, than that is a true statement. Those courts are 1.75 hours from where I live though, much too far for me to join you guys. Sounds like a good group though. :)

    On a side note, the Youtek Radical is 500% better than the MG Radical which I liked as well (when I demo'd it a year ago).

    Nottoway okay again, JRK, ScmMad, PP? 9 or 10 Saturday? Probly easier to get a court at 9, but whatever you guys want.

    P.S. Bedtime. Will check answers in the wee a.m. hours.

    Nottoway 9AM is fine with me.

    *Aragorn voice on* What say you, TheJrk? What say you?!

    Last time we played there, I didn't expect anybody to be playing tennis at that hour..... but all the courts were full by 9:20.....which surprised me a bit.

    I will try to contact PP either tonight or tomorrow and get a response from him.

    Sup, relying on the TMAC to do this thing is like relying on a beat-up Brazilian-made Volkswagen to not break down during a cross-country trip.

    But, I'll do my part and post the picture you requested. However, you did not specify that it has to be a current picture.
