The November Ping Pong Meetup
Thursday, November 20, 2008 4:22 PM
Wow! I'm excited to see such a large number of people sign up for this event. All right, with a little more than 24 hours before the event, here are some things you need to know:
- Mackenzie's will have a lot of traffic on Friday. There are three separate shows going on downtown, according to the manager at Mackenzie's. It will probably be busiest before 11pm.
- Because of the number of shows going on downtown, we will not have the upstairs area exclusively to ourselves. However, I'll be there early to secure the ping pong table, which I have been assured will be set up for us.
- There is only one ping pong table! Fortunately, games go by fairly quickly and we can always play doubles. Also, there are dart boards downstairs, as well as a golden tee and a bean bag toss (corn hole) arcade game.
- As for the table, it may be slightly damaged. Apparently, someone was a sore loser last weekend and decided to kick or otherwise damage one of the table legs. The manager has told me that they have bent the leg back into place, making it playable, but be forewarned that the table might not be in the best condition.
If after reading this e-mail you wish to change your RSVP, I completely understand. I just want each of you to know exactly what to expect so there are no surprises when you arrive. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
