    Very good idea Bad Dog. Maybe I can make some phone calls to Aspen Hill Tennis club. Have a mini tennis party with the members in the viewing area.

    Let me see how that will work out. I'm sure Cindy will respond promptly as opposed to other exhibition attempts with "other(s)". :???:

    I am available anytime. Yeah we should definitely do one more meet before kids go back to school. I am in no matter what day unless some important matter comes up. Let me look for a wooden racquet on ****....I will probably just get Jack Kramer..since it's cheap.

    I don't have a wood racquet, so can I play with my hand?

    Anywho, I'm available most days until the 14th.

    Yes, yes. I should buy a bottle of Grey Goose, and share it among TW MACers during the meet. After emptying it, I shall play with it. :p

    I am available weekends...*except* January 5 (though if we wrap up by 5ish, I could swing it). Usually WED evenings as well, but for max participation, I think you would be looking at a weekend daytime, correct?

    I do not own a wooden racquet.

    Ummm, maybe you should ask me and Cindy first?

    Seriously though, why is everyone's new favorite pastime 'Let's have a match between Topaz and (fill in the blank).'?

    So, I guess the meet has to be on the next weekend since it's Wednesday today already....seems like super nice out on next Monday and Tuesday, though...we can hit some outside, if anyone wants. I am willing to travel.

    Hmmm, if it is on the 12th, I need some advance notice...I will be without a car, but Enterprise is right across the street from me.

    El Jefe?!? What say you?

    Topaz-San, I don't think that would be a big problem. I am pretty sure some MAC member nearest you will pick you up on the way!! Right????? Don't waste your money on a rent-a-car.

    Hey! Happy New Year everyone!

    I'd be available to play anytime. Believe it or not, the last time I played was at the last MAC meeting that I showed up to (I don't even remember when that was :confused:)

    Reminder about TWMAC meets

    Guys, getting indoor time is tough, so I ask if you are interested in coming out, you respond immediately. So i can get a sense of how many courts I need and hopefully get them next to each other. Right now the first 8 who are interested get priority until tomorrow. Then decisions need to be made. Rock Creek accepts times 7 days in advance.

    So where you guys? Magmasilk? Shcmad? KoreanHb? Patty? Bad Dog?

    Dan.Smith (?) from the Babolat Alliance? You going to be able to make it?

    and of course ZAPVOR.. ATTENTION ZAPVOR> CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE THERE. ZAPVOR. PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOU WILL BE THERE.

    That is all.

    I fear no. No.

    Why? Apparently everytime we mention it or start to get it organized, someone runs and hides. So we won't mention it anymore.

    Unless there is in fact a confirmation? *crickets*. Yeah I thought so.

    Lets just show up and play like last time with some added stuff. Radar gun, wood racquet exhibition, and maybe a song and dance.

    P.S. Shintan. I was pretty close to buying this for you. However, I wasn't sure if you are a Large or a Medium. I'm guessing you know what it means. Just thought of you.

    LOL...I don't think I need a shirt with Japanese characters on it...that's for "gaijin"=foreigners...

    Besides....私は日本で大きい...
    doesn't make sense...."I am big in Japan"...that's what it says...but big in what...And even if it means that, we say it differently.

    We call your version of "gaijin" --- "gringo" or "PurePrestige" in Spanish. Both mean the same thing.
