    • @ Tom, We use the Doodle link on the homepage to make people aware of the schedueld play, times and locations. Be glad to have you drop by and play any of the times listed. If you plan on attending, pls sign up through Doodle if possible (instructions are on the site). If you are unable, you can just drop in, although there may be some cancellations for rain, etc. If you are in the area and want to join the club, we will sometimes have people who contact each other for pickup games based on levels of play.
