Well, after reading another topic I thought I would post the interview that I conducted with Mr. Strawn. A little bit of backstory first: As part of a requirement for the school year I just completed, we had to do something called an "I-Search." Basically we were to choose a topic that meant something to us and that would be of some benefit to us. I chose racquet stringing because I love tennis and had gotten into stringing around that time. I posted at the GSS boards and Mr. Strawn responded very quickly to my post and was willing to be interviewed. The interview was a joy all around for me although it was hard to keep typing because all I wanted to do was listen to what he was saying. Doing this interview probably completed around 60-70% of my project in terms of fact gathering. Most of my peers made up their interviews, but I was fortunate enough to have a great primary source. Now for my usual disclaimers before a long post : 1. There will be some parts where the grammar drops off because I was trying to type what he was saying. 2. I'm FAR from a good interviewer so I apologize for anything that you think was a stupid question. Part of it was lack of know-how//experience, and the other part was me wanting to know more about something I was in the dark on. Here's the interview!
