Never-say-die-day. Tuesday, 4/26/11

The photo above is not posted just to demonstrate Mighty Spidy's p'ball form. It is to show the blue, rain free sky that appeared shortly after 4 p'ballers elected to leave due to wet courts and drizzly conditions. You must have more faith in the UPG Weather Arrangers! That's why they get the big bucks. Let's see. Gary was on site first; he contemplated the conditions then drove off. Ralph appeared, but didn't get out of his car and off he went. Peter P came, saw, drove off, but never left the park and returned. Carol and Johnny arrived. Johnny walked down to the court, gabbed a little and left. In the mean time, Mike, Steve, Peter P, Sharon and yon writer-of-sorts began playing on the wet (but, not slippery) courts. The drizzle stopped almost immediately, a breeze arrived on schedule, the sun peeked through the clouds and the courts began to dry as they always do in such conditions. We played for 2-1/2 hours.
Spidy was very busy as can be readily seen in the collage above. The play of the day is shown bottom right where he served from the prone position.

Above Top L is Stevie Wonder; on the R is Cupcake. Below: Pete P with a magnetic knee.

NOTE: Mr Stevie Wonder will be taking care of the equipment for the next 3 or 4 sessions, but I'll send out the notice for Friday, April 29th. Stay tuned. Spike.
