Was planning to just stay one night in SD somewhere near Airport? And then head out early in the morning?...But now I'm wondering if I should check out the SD sites before driving over to IW on Fri (OR I can see sitesee on the way back).

Also, anyone have advice on how long to spend in IW and SD? I usually get kind of burned out after 4 days of watching tennis (ie: Aussie Open, US Open) - much rather be playing** The events are fun, and will definitely checkout the weekend activities.

3/12 UPDATE:

My pics are up on Flickr (didn't want to spam this board) - http://www.flickr.com/photos/demiace...lls2013/page3/

Saw some of the TW playtesters and their demo court but unfortunately the line was a little too long when I got there (very popular attraction this year).

As for playing tennis - Got invited to fill in for some missing guys at Monteray CC - part of 4th annual "Team Tennis Championships" for a Minnesota team that needed extra 4.0 men...

It was exactly what I was looking for from this thread...(play tennis in the morning, watch more in the afternoon + at night); great people and awesome dinner* Hope they have something like this at other tourneys too

**Btw, I checked out La Jolla - beach just north of SD and was cool to see the seals out there on the beach.

The drive on Rt 74 (aka "Pines to Palms" Hwy was very cool - light dusting of snow like Granite said...) - recommend doing this route only in the day time though - Big Horn has a lot of twists and turns but extremely fun for spirted drive
