I'll be easy to recognize. I'll have a way-overstuffed black and blue Prince bag, and I'll probably be carrying some funky racquet.So should I wear a name tag that says "Hi, my name is Marco"
Yes, we have room.I'm in Shoreline but lived for a year on 65th St & 25th Ave (Ravena). I don't have too many tennis partners in the area (just moved here 1 year ago). I usualy play Thursdays evening and Sunday morning at Medowbrook Park. If you have space for one more guy let me know I can make it tomorrow 6:30pm.
From the looks of it, this is going to be a pretty successful first outing. I'll try and bring some snacks (cookies or something popular) though no guarantees as I'm trying to get ready to head out of town for a week and I'm stuck at work trying to find my desk. . .Yes, we have room.
I was thinking, would it be wise to pick up some name stickers?
If we want to make this a quarterly or monthly event (I'm thinking the most I can do is once every 2 months) we should organize snacks etc.
Okay. Will do, but I don't have everyone's email address. To those who want to get in, shoot me an email at:Haha, I don't think the snack part will work well this time, If i have time at my place I'll bring some gummi bears or somthing.
Just so everyone knows, we're still on! IF Midlife sees this beforehand, please shoot an e-mail out to everyone to confirm. I will be waiting at the door from about 6:00-6:30. Midlife, I'm going to shoot you an e-mail with my cell, please send it out with the confirmation e-mail with my name
All, right, you win!First post, I win :grin:
That was full of fun. Yeah, put the nick with the name and the game that go with it I enjoy every minutes of it. I love trying those early day rackets --> Thanks Midlife. Looking forward to another gathering. :grin:All, right, you win!
It was a fun night. 12 of us on three courts. It was fun to put a face (and game) with a name. As the (by far) elder statesman, I have to say it was only too common to see someone blast a highlight reel shot clean by me. My back is hurting from doing the "I'm not worthy" bow so many times!
Thanks again to Diredesire for putting this together (no I'm not paying blackmail to not have my oh-so-embarrassing pictures posted!
Everyone was hitting big groundstrokes/heavy groundstrokes and solid volleys. Yeah everyone has pretty big serves except me :O my triple double fault and then second serve ace on my first game (that was bad) =p. However, I *think* I picked it up haha =s.I was surprised at how well everyone can hit. Everyone was hitting big serves and solid ground strokes.
Thanks for coming out everyone! It was hard to manage three courts, we didn't get to mix it up as much as I wanted. We'll have to plan a better structure next time.First, many thanks diredesire, you're awsome! I had to leave a little early and I didn't have time to thank you in person so here it goes THANK YOU!
I was too very curios how well people hit, but man I was impressed. There was no one that couldn't play at least 3.5 on a bad day. The funny thing was that so many had 1hbh or was it just my impression ( at least on the court I was playing we all had 1hbh).
I have to admit people living in Seattle are nice and this confirmed it, all the people showing up were nice and I had a blast. I hope we can do it again sometime.
BTW if anybody wants to hit in Shoreline let me know .

NP guys, next time it looks like I need to turn the other side's lights on just to get a good picture. Most of these were grainy and hard to recover any detailThanks DD for the pics! #7681 is my favorite.
We should have a halloween night, and all of us would have to dress up in a costume. THat would be a riotGreat pictures I do like #7618 Thanks DD
We have a groups picture. Marco, do you have that?
Hopefully we could setup the next one in Oct DD and the rest at UW, is that good for you guys to reverse the court? We could split the different .
Dibs on dressing up as old players + tight white shorts (I know you want to see my sexy theighs) and having a wood frame party =D.We should have a halloween night, and all of us would have to dress up in a costume. THat would be a riot
Converting the video now
I call dibs on the Kramer strung with SPPP :grin:By the way, as I was putting my racquets away, I found both a Davis Pro and a Davis Imperial. Along with the Kramer, that's at least three racquets. We'd need only one more for a wood-only doubles match. Next time!
