    ^^^^ NEVER!!! I spoke to Oscar this week. We are definitely going to get the crew to meet up shortly. Will let everyone know. In the meantime, you guys are more than welcome to set up a hit of your own if some of use can't make it.

    I've hit a few times with FloridaAG. Nice guy, and solid player. Definitely recommend for some of you guys to try and meet up with him.

    NoSkillz???? Where the heck have you been????

    Although I can't make it this weekend playing the tournament in Pompano- it seems obvious that someone needs to be proactive and pick a time and place for the meet -

    Here are some shots of Blackfrido, Moglia, and yours truly.

    First is blackfrido preparing a devastating forehand.

    Next we have Moglia dispensing backhand justice.

    I got him to register a while back, but he hasn't posted much. I doubt he even remembers his login and password. I'll get on his ***.

    You're right about the heat. It feels like your playing in a bowl of hot soup down here in the summer.

    I'm still laughing about the "last Tango", according to you > the latest Argentine dance moves

    Here are some shots from a session this afternoon at 2:00. It felt like we were playing on the surface of the sun.

    Here's one of JamaicanYoute giving the ball directions to the net.

    Indroducing JamaicanYoute's younger brother, Joe, or as his friends call him . . . JoeMama.

    JamaicanYoute's camera work pays dividends.

    Sampras-style running forehand. Be afraid.

    Joe-style standing forehand. Relax.

    Klatu, unbelievable photos. The young gun looks like he has game. JY, also looks fresh after that long honeymoon. :)

    Looks like our next meet is going to be huge. I'm currently trying to set up a time with Oscar, and Vince. When we get a confirmation from Oscar, I'll let you know.

    Those are the hours I could play during the say since I work in the morning and again at night.

    I'm in decent shape, but I usually don't play for more than 2 hours in Miami's afternoon sun. My pastey skin can't handle it!

    If you want to meet up somewhere more in the middle - I would meet for a hit tomorrow even if no one else is interested - although I guess I could head south. Let me know or e-mail me at FloridaAG@gmail.com
