    All of you helped make this weekend a success, so I really don't think it's necessary to offer more (that's not fair to YOU). But if you'd like to donate $25 more, the additional funds can go toward Eric's Single's Tournament (winking). Thanks for insisting, Juan!

    You guys really made this weekend special. I'm SO LUCKY to have such a great group of participants. ALRIGHT, ERIC - YOU'RE UP, DUDE!!! You lead and we'll follow you into a Singles Tournament.

      Great Tournament! Priscilla, you rock! Thanks for organizing a thoroughly enjoying event, and utterly flawless in terms of dotting the i's' and crossing the 't's

    To allow the sun to dry up courts, please arrive between 8:30 and 8:45. We'll start playing at 9 am.

    I would play but can't due to prior obligations. If it gets rained out, I can play that weekend. I would love to play a singles tournament if that happens.

    Is there a chance to push back the start time? I've heard that many aren't signing up due to the 8 time… perhaps 10 would get more interest. And encourage people just to sign up and they will be assigned a comparable partner, not just whomever is left

    Hi Eric - thanks for sharing your feedback. Admittedly, the draw is much smaller than 2 years ago. As long as we have at least 2 teams, we'll still play. Some folks have shared that they are struggling to find a partner and have therefore not signed up yet. There's at least one player who has paid for participation--but I think he's not even a member of this meetup, so I can't add him to the roster. But I will respect your decision to not participate if you feel it's not worth the effort since there doesn't seem to be alot of folks participating.

      if people can't find a partner, encourage them to sign up anyway. We can divvy up teams the day of if need be.

      April 20, 2014

  • Priscilla

    So, does this mean you'd like to host a singles tournament some time this year? I'd LOVE to support you - you take the lead and I'm sure we'll follow.

    April 20, 2014

  • Eric H.

    How bout this idea! If there are not at least 4 teams then have a singles tournament; more people will likely sign up. My suggestion is to have 16 or 24 (6 byes) singles players either play in a seeded tournament or a random draw tournament. Priscilla, I would be happy to discuss with you 16 seeds that I have in mind and contact those players to see if we can get a good tournament going. There doesn't even have to be an entry fee, just let's see who's the best on any given weekend.

  • Eric H.

    In my opinion, if there are not at least 8 good doubles teams competing, it might not be worth it.

    Cant the 26 sitting for the cpa that day!
