    Going to go play at ABC for the first time tonight. Panda has graciously said he will show up in honor of my long drive there to let me test drive some of his racquets.

    Anyone want to play, look out for panda and come hit with us. I like to say im a B player but Panda can chime in on what level i am ;)

    Great, I will see you and Panda tonight. Panda sounds like a powerful player with his new Panda's racket LINE. I will keep my eyes out for a Bald dude with a Short Asian wife.

    Sounds good Eddie...a friend of mine has courts 2 and 3 reserved from 8 - 10pm. Lets get a game going if you can find 2 more people. My friends are beginners and would like me to play with them to see if i can give them any pointers.

    ^^Hmm..^^

    ..your travel time would be 1-1.5 hrs, at most 2 hrs coming from the Valencia/Ventura area around this time..that 210 fwy stretch @ the Pasadena/San Gabriel foothill area all the way to the 605 fwy is a killer...:(..Might as well get a head start soon..:p
    Anyway, have fun, Brandon!!..:cool:

    I actually live in northridge...and surprising....no traffic at all....got there in about 40 minutes. Thanks to eddie and Rudy for the game....gave me a great sweat. I will definitely be back...maybe we can get a regular game going.

    Thanks again,

    ^^When did you leave Northridge??..^^

    ..around 5 pm or around 7 pm?? If it's the latter, then traffic would've probably died down...Summer time is also probably a bit lighter as students are on vacation..Did master Dan swing by and play with you guys??..
    Yeah, come again on Saturday or Sunday soon..Saturday night would have the least crowd, at least that's from what i observed the last few weeks.
    I know it's a bit of a drive but glad to know you had fun!:cool:

    Btw, how was the crowd? Good thing your friends reserved 2 courts..

    Wow, you Guys have great fun with responsibility now!;)
    I just wish could be there to enjoy but duty calls me to be somewhere else where danger lurks in very pretty ways.
    Good luck in the tourney and party!

    Actually left around 6:30pm so i must have avoided the major traffic. Master Dan did come by and played with me against Eddie and Rudy. Ill definitely try and make a saturday night one of these nights so we can get a game going.

    Crowd was decent, players were decent, im not the greatest in the world but seemed to be a lot of beginners over there which is fine by me. Had a few decent games with Eddie....definitely got a good sweat last night.

    Are you planning on going tonight? What's your name btw?

    ^^Good to hear..^^

    - 6:30 pm and above sounds much better for traffic.
    - Yes, i did go last night after 6 pm. The place was 35-40% empty the rest of the night, so there were plenty of open courts. I usually play Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings, esp. in this hot & humid weather..:p
    - I'm planning to play today, after 6 pm. Don't know if you're up for it or not?!?!:p.. Eddie and Rudy come in once in a while on Sunday.
    - Yes, most of the people there are beginners/low intermediates. However, there will be 1, 2 or 3 groups/courts of decent players. Best time they'll show up are weeknights or weekends.
    - My name is Chris.
    :)

    I wished you came early, like 6ish PM, instead later on Friday :crying:
    We were so exhausted and could not even bow down to pick-up the birdie.

    Chris:
    Please spare your time to come on Friday evening :cool:
    The Sunday is usually around noon time.
    We are not in there on Saturday since our bodies could not stretch upon waking up from Friday's games.

    Hmm..

    ..wow, you guys started playing @ 6pm this past Friday?? in the heat & humidity (i know it was quite hot)? no wonder you guys were exhausted by the time Brandon came...:p

    Even last night, when i played, i can still feel a bit of heat & humidity around 7-8ish pm..:p

    This coming Friday night, i don't think my schedule will allow it (have an early morning appt on Saturday also)..Maybe next Friday or the week after..
    Saturday evening, yes, most likely..
    Sunday afternoon, will try, but no guarantees..Evening is more likely (cooler weather)..;)
