  • I will go to Vegas for the Nationals next week. Jerry Poon will be in charge of the round robin. Please send him email to reserve your spot as early as possible. There is a very slim chance getting a spot if you send me email on Thursday or Friday. Drop-in on Saturday is almost impossible. As of this moment, only 5 spots are available.

  • The weekly round robin is getting more and more popular. Please send me email to reserve your spot as early as possible. There is a very slim chance getting a spot if you send me email on Thursday or Friday. Drop-in on Saturday is almost impossible. As of this moment, only 2 spots are available.
  • The next 4-week clinic will start next Saturday. The tentative schedule is 12/11, 12/17, 1/8, and 1/15. There are only six spots available and two have been taken. Each player will train 1 hour per session with another player. Regional coach Jim Chai is our head coach. He is doing this for free. However, a $40 donation, for all four sessions, toward our fund for new equipment is appreciated.
  • It seems that the 3-game rotation worked well. Please limit your warmup time to two minutes when there are people waiting. Please observe two-out rule as well. (The winner steps down after winning the second match.)
