    It would be an honor to play with some young veterans who are well experienced in the sport.

    What time do you guys arrive at? And sounds good I will talk to Richard and see what courts you guys are on and will come over to introduce myself.

    I should be telling you to go easy on me.

    Hey Madbad, the ones I got from Soccerlinks are 78s; I guess I could bend the tips to slow them down.

    KKBird, I will let them know about it. I think during the winter the bird will fly a little slower.

    Guys, please use speed 75. Your 78/77 won't work there. It will fly like a bullet!!!!:eek:

    Well, I might need to bring the laptop then. We hit the first bird at 8:00pm Fri. I'm sure we'll be totally out of it by then. :p

    Looking forward (with a touch of trepidation) to crossing rackets with you. See you tomorrow.

    Unfortunately peteLSD has to pull out of the trip at the last minute as he had a family commitment he couldn't reschedule. We'll miss him.

    Would have been good to meet some of the guys from the coast again, but only just starting to swing the raquets again and was at a golf tourney. Now I'm nursing a mid back injury.

    next time.
