    Pictures coming later - met up with Jmverdugo and his wife, my wife and me this morning at our place. Very very nice people, solid players and we had a great time. We played 2 sets of mixed doubles, then jmverdugo and I played a set of singles and our wives then played a set and we hit a little more. Probably 3 hours of playing, and hanging out. Was a little windy but not too bad.

    Good times.

    Second "mini-meet" of the week for the TWSF!

    The TWSF have become Ambassadors of the TW World -Wide Community. We've had visitors from England, Europe, and Poland. Not to mention TWers from all over America. Yesterday, we had some of our Diplomats greet our TW Brothers from South America. Today, we greeted one of our Northern TW brothers from Canada (Scez). Scez is a real good player with a huge serve. Very fluid and powerful. Want to thank him for setting up the hitting session at the Diplomat tennis center. Some pics:


    Scez:

    ^^^^ You took some weird photos. LOL

    No clue how many courts they have. They appeared to be all clay, but I may be wrong.

    The big meet is this weekend. Look forward to seeing everyone.

    NO - Approximately 20 years ago it was a secondary location for yard clippings that was built into a ball field/recreation area in the middle of an upscale residential subdivision. It is connected to a county park/mangrove ecological preserve.

    ^^^^LMAO!! If it weren't for you constantly asking me, "whats a tire", "why does it lose it's air", "what a "jack", "how does such a small object lift a heavy one", etc, etc, etc>>>>it would have taken me only 10 minutes. Tops.

    Got it - Pretty sure they will be back and have internet access but I am sending an e-mail anyway. Will call if we don't hear anything from them but I am no sure if his Miami number was working.

    Oscar - New Years resolutions huh? Ok, no beer for you.
