    i haven't heard anything about Pleasanton Friday opening. they sent out a noticed last Thursday for the Friday opening. let's wait till tomorrow.

    TrunkZ69 said Bintang postponed their opening to next friday (1/23). the new gym is on Rt.237/Carribean Drive area. they haven't announced the address yet.

    the young American guy, the very tall one? and they played on the middle court at the entrance's end (2nd court to the left of the entrance as you walk in) ?

    that friend of yours, he is short and thin? no glasses, short hair?
