St. Louis Area Pre-Nationals practice

Post by Charbroil » Sat May 15, 2010 7:28 pm

So, with HSNCT & NSC coming up soon, I'm organizing a pre-Nationals practice this upcoming Monday at WashU around 4 in the afternoon for high schoolers interested in getting some additional practice against top area players. I already have some degree of interest from Clayton & PCH people, so we should definitely be able to go ahead with this--thus, let me know by email at charleshang228@yahoo.com or Facebook if you're interested in this.

Players not attending either National tournament are welcome to join us, incidentally. Also, let me know if you need a ride, since I can probably help with that.

EDIT: I'm thinking of meeting in the Danforth University Center, which is building 25 on this map: http://visitor.wustl.edu/danforthmap.pdf

I cannot speak for the rest of my team, but, with tennis going basically until nationals, I am not able to come to this practice.

That's the night of Maypole (a senior Villa tradition), and none of Villa can come. :(

Ammar's unsure, WASHU is kinda out of the way. Depending, we might have to postpone it to a different night.

Let me know what might be a better location & time, and please try to get actual confirmations from Ammar (and yourself).

Okay, we're definitely going ahead with this, but there are a couple of slight changes. First of all, we'll be meeting at Clayton High School instead of WashU. Second, we'll be meeting at 3:30 PM instead of 4:00.

Thanks for mentioning this. Also, we'll probably be meeting in Tisch Commons downstairs before going to whichever room we practice in.

Slight possibility I might stop by for a while, as I have to take a trip to St. Louis sometime within the next few days anyway.

I might be able to make it after 7, due to a graduation party.
