    i say a mini meet is a must. i am not organizing though. i am not even really the founder. the chapter is possible only because of all its members not some figurehead dude. i am just another member like all of us. if anything we are all co founders at the round table. besides i am not running low on shampoo;) although let me know what date you guys decide and i will try to come.

    auzzie which dates will you be here?

    lol you guys are serious about this...i guess hitting on center court doesnt appeal to me as it used to. anyways.....alright so here is what i am thinking.

    1. i like to know auzzie's dates so we can pick one. i am thinking next sunday.

    2. how many people are actually going to show? this will determine court time. right now i am thinking 2hrs.

    3. because the center court belongs to the education foundation and not the tennis center side where i am, i propose each person give like a $5-10 donation to the foundation seeing how turkey-i mean thanksgiving day is coming up.

    4. no promises!!!!

    so um i guess just indicate if you are coming or not. thanks

    oh and i am thinking we need at least 6 people. because 1 its for auzzie (its your last chance this year!) and 2 if its less than 6 i can probably just ask them for 1hr but i figure lets try to get more people and help them out at the same time. maybe TW will give us some swag too!

    Honestly, my schedule is such a mess that the best I can do is say I hope I'm free on the day it ends up happening. Auzzie, I'd always be down for hitting on our own too.

    Hope everyone is well...saw TFM this week, he went on Steroids.

    downs - i'm looking into radar guns. problem is they're kinda pricey for a nice toy. there's the bushnell hand held ones but they top out at 110 mph for about $80 or so. 110 mph is your second serve. so that's out. plus it takes some idiot to hold it all day.

    then there's these speedtrac ones for about $140 ish. they measure up to 150 mph which should cover most of your first serve - especially if they go in. plus it's got a nice big digital readout and you put it behind the net while you're serving.

    so who's got $140 of disposable income? who's willing to donate to the cause? or does anyone know someone who has a radar gun?

    20th is awesome for me... Foundation courts are also good. I'm surprised this is kind of happening!

    Zap, I'm going to be in the USA for a month from Monday. And why didn't you include yourself on the list?
