    ^^I thought..^^

    ..Saturday, esp. at night, is the least crowded day/time of the week? followed by Monday evenings??..
    Sunday is okay, but the last 3 Sunday evenings have been busy..
    But in general, weekend esp. at night is the least crowded...

    Let us know in what attire you're gonna come with, wickeddrop. Are you visiting from out of town??..

    Not visiting from out of town..im a regular at mar vista, have played with panda bear and coach don as well. Getting my wife into playing so was thinking of stopping by. Dinkalot (Panda) has seen me play ;)

    Its not for sure yet, but ill probably be wearing a tank top (wife beater) since its so hot and some blue or black shorts, ill be the bald asian guy with a short viet wife. If we go, it will probably be towards 5pm. ctjcad, if you spot me, come up and hit a little.

    The events usually starts 15min - 20minutes later, but I would like to have people here on time, so we can PICK partner. And if any changes need to be make, it would be much easily if we are all here on time. Let's have fun and do your best to come on time. PLEASE, PLEASE COME ON TIME. THX :)

    Too good..

    ..the Vinson kid is very good, despite him being shorter than the net. I believe whoever partners with him in the next SB Doubles tourney has more than 90% chance of winning. I'm afraid Vinson is gonna keep winning.
    As for the Finals match, I had hoped it would go to a rubber game. I thought i saw 2 A players playing against 1 A & 1 B player..Good show though!:cool:

    @Eddie
    Thank you for organizing the event, I had fun playing and making new friends!

    @Y'oinks
    Are you Soknath by any chance?

    @ctjcad
    I had no idea you were there. Too bad...otherwise, I would have love to play a game with you or at least put a face to a handle.

    B@deyes, yes, Y'oinks is Soknath. I played doubles with him after the tournament ended along with Rudy (pramana) and Eddie (SuperBird).
    I came late but watched the Final match. Did you stay and play a bit after the tournament ended? Maybe once Eddie puts up the videos, you can tell us which one is you..:cool:
    ..pramana (Rudy) should play on Friday, he is a reg. on Friday night. He lives around the Ventura county area as well so i don't know if you guys want to carpool together or not? I know it's a long drive from your guys' area.
    Eddie also, depends on his schedule. I probably won't be able to make it this coming Friday.
    Friday night is usually a bit more crowded. In fact, it's arguably the most crowded night of the week...:p

    B@dEyes, yes, I am, but who were you? Haha, I'm sorry if I didn't get to meet everyone that day. I'm planning another visit to ABC soon; maybe I'll see all of you there!

    Haha...it is quite a drive there especially in rush hour traffic. But, more than likely i will be there this fri with the wifey. Pramana, if you come, just be on the look out for a bald asian guy with a short wife. Ill prob be playing with some filipino guys as they want me to play with them but we can always get a game going.

    Shoot, I'm old and forgetful. But I recalled that I teamed up with Eddie and played against Soknath and his partner. If so, I played against you and didn't even know it. :)
