What part of rebellion didn’t you
understand? I left you a voicemail last Saturday morning telling you most
of the troops who came to Brengle Terrace that day decided they didn’t like not
having enough courts and were going to meet on the YMCA courts in Oceanside I
believe. In any case, we only had one court at first. Then, a second
court opened, and three of us plus a pick-up from another group warmed up and
then played one set. Nam left at that point, which ended the doubles
competition on that court for our group. I think the time was about 9:15
AM. I lingered a bit, but soon left because there were apparently no
possibilities to play. I can’t see getting up early and going through all
the preparation and travel to play one set. Consequently, I didn’t go to
Brengle Terrace last Sunday nor today and don’t plan to be there tomorrow unless
you can convince me it’s worth the bother.
I think playing later is a great idea
because I’ve several times seen the courts largely empty after about 10 or 10:30
AM. However, many people in your group seem to prefer coming early and
leaving about 10 AM. So, I doubt many of your group will want to play from
about 10 AM or so for several hours. Apparently, your early birds aren’t
alone, which is why the courts are packed early and largely empty after about
10:30 AM. The situation was similar at the CHS courts.
Another downside is only a handful of
players who were regulars at the Carlsbad courts have ever come to Brengle
Terrace regularly. I know a couple players said it was too far for them,
but I haven’t a clue as to why others haven’t come.
Also, as I’ve told you, I haven’t received
the regular notifications of your meetup in several weeks. I just checked
my computer, and everything seems OK insofar as my account is concerned.
Perhaps some people don’t even know about the meetups at Brengle Terrace.
Speaking of Terrace, what happened to Terry, a long-term member of your group
until we could no longer play at CHS? She’s one of many of your group who
have never played at Brengle Terrace so far as I know.
