    I'd be interested in joining you guys as I've been trying to meet a few more people from the boards. Where in Arlington are you playing?

    Thanks.

    czech - let's try to play next week.

    Arlington peeps - any chance of a Mini-meet Thursday?

    JRK, Auzzie, or Dats - want to play?

    Hello all,

    They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So does that mean TFM has two hearts? Or Zappy has none? *shrug*

    In either case. Our Top Chef offers a buffet of:

    Kalbi (Korean short ribs)
    Jap chae (sweet potato noodles with spinach and wild mushrooms)
    Kimchis
    Strawberry cheesecake ice cream
    Tiramisu gelato
    and grapefruit sorbet

    The price of admission? Having the next TWMAC meet in Mt Airy, MD .. the date: August 16th Sunday. Two secluded tennis courts and bathrooms (alice rechecking) available.

    VA peeps we can carpool, which leaves room for more drinking, sitting or swimming at her pool and watching spiderboy play his violin upside down.

    If there is interest lets move forward! Get a food list and lock things up for the day.

    Cliff Notes:

    August 2009 TWMAC meet
    When: August 16- Sunday
    Where: MT Airy, MD
    How: Van leaves NOVA early and returns before sundown
    Who: Who else could cook the above- Alice. But we will also be bringing stuff
    Why: Cause its tennis! Cause its good food.. and because we haven't had a meet in a while.

    disclaimer: This idea brought to you by Alice. Her offering of food and house is very generous.

    We've been having the meets on Friday, not Thursday... but maybe we could switch it around.

    Having played every day last week, my arm is seriously shot. I could barely serve on Saturday when I was playing Alice. On Sunday I could barely hold a beer in my hand (oh the horror). It's starting to feel better so maybe I could hit around Thursday for a bit.

    What time could you make it?

    zap -- sorry dood. no carpooling with me. i won't be attending the next great TWMAC meet. will be out of town on vacation.

    JRK -- so we're looking at a possible meet tomorrow? this is pertinent to my interests. as for whether my boss will give me the green light is a different matter.

    I can swing by and pick you up, if you really want to go.

    P.S. That assumes the meet "makes," of course. :)

    your task for the day.. is to find a picture of Sam Querrey hitting a ball in a match where he doesn't look like an uncoordinated & constipated noob.
    good luck!

    Okay, I guess most people can show up around 7pm on Thursday, let's try for that.

    Hopefully there is:

    1. No rain
    2. Open courts

    See everyone on Thursday. :)

    Sup, you can put me down as a "Maybe" for the meet. I can probably go but not sure 100% yet.

    Btw, whose "van" are you referring to? And, more importantly, who's driving? If Zap is the driver, I ain't goin.

    I'll bring a jar of Hellmann's mayo to simulate the presence of PP. I can ask him if he wants to join us, but nobody knows what time he'll be done with work tomorrow.

    That's negative 005... like the grade of topspin you generate. Guess that means you hit with underspin if anything.

    A common zapvor reply. just call mrhan back.

    i can imagine this also:
    Zap: can you drive?
    Friend: I don't have a car?
    Zap: So you'll pick me up late. cool.

    Also, shcmad says your driving skill is suspect.
