    Sorry that this is a repeat post but the original posting was put in a wrong thread.

    Hi there,
    Looks like there might be a few folks from out of town coming in this week.

    John Luu (Tangent Sports in Edmonton) will be here this week and is looking to play some games. He will be bringing some Karakal racquets and accessories for folks interested in trying out the racquets.

    I don't know how many folks are interested but I am thinking Thursday evening at Darryl's Clearone facility and then Saturday evening at the VRC (will need the members like Timeless, TTT, Gryp, Pete LSD, etc) to sign us in.

    For Thursday (say 7pm to 10pm), depending on the number of people interested, we might have to book a couple of courts (thinking 6 or so per court so around $7.5/person). Please let me know as early as possible so that I can book the courts.

    Thanks for the intro WWC.

    If you have any request for rackets, please let me know before I start to drive out to Vancouver. I know it's really short notice, but atleast I'm giving you guys a chance ;)
    PM me before 3am Vancouver time. So besides the rackets, I'm bringing the Karakal PU Grips, which, in my opinion, is the best grip out there. If you want to try them out just show up or if you want to know what time I'm going to be where, just give Winex West Canada a shout. I'll be tagging along with him around from club to club. Thanks very much

    not sure about Thursday night - how many are showing up? mrs. badrad and I may drop by if we can can get the time.

    Saturday night sounds okay with me. I might be having a game earlier and will stick around for the BF'ers.

    WWC, did you book the courts yet for Thur? I think there are only two courts available, the rest are utilized for drop-ins. I was there last week and it was extremely busy.

    What? We ain't good enough for you? :D :D :D

    So far, the count is 6 or 7 or 9 depending...

    1) Myself
    2) John Luu
    3) Wood_22_Chuck
    4) Gryp
    5 and 6) 15Love and Mr. 15Love
    7 and 8) Badrad and Mrs. Badrad

    Have not heard from TTT, Seot, Timeless (& Mrs. Timeless), Pete LSD, Absinte, WilloW, etc.

    UPDATE:
    No courts are available at ClearOne for booking tomorrow so what I am suggesting that those who are interested come at 7pm and register for the drop in session ($6.00 and starts 7:30 pm to 10pm) so as to avoid not be able to get in (max of 32 over 4 courts). John and I will definitely be there so feel free to come.

    We will also be at the VRC on Saturday evening (around 9-ish pm).

    Viver usually can't make it out on weeknights and not sure if he can make Saturday either since he will be playing Sunday evening at Collingwood (which I might not be able to attend because of Thurs/Sat) :(

    badrad makes a good point, if there's no court available for booking. I'll definitely drop by VRC (what time?) on Saturday, but put me down as a 'maybe' for ClearOne tonight.
