Fry-day P'ball - June 3, 2011

Well, it turned out not to be hot enough to warrant the "Fry-day" moniker - but, the editorial staff is sticking with it because that term was used to advertise the event. Ten players made an appearance for the session: The 4 above - Ralph (Ricky Ricardo) and Sharon (Cupcake) hitting to Jan and Gary A (Rambo). Plus: Mike, Steve, Anne, Peter P, Johnny and yon editor. We kept the courts busy for 2-1/2 hours and had a bunch of hard-fought matches and scads of fun, too.
Above: Top L-R: Peter P and Rambo. Bottom L-R: Hoot and Stevie Wonder
Above: Top L-R: Ricky/Dutchess and Peter P/Spidy. Bottom L-R: Ricky/Dutchess and Jan/Rambo.

As the troops drifted off, four of us migrated to one court and got in 3 tight matches that included nice long rallies and some serious net play. We were pretty much spent by the end of the triple header. Teams: Stevie Wonder and Rambo vs Spidy and Spike. While we played, Cupcake and Dutchess sat on the sideline in the only patch of shade left on the court and had a very pleasant gab session. A nice day all around.

Special note: Thanks to Gary A for bringing a packet of first aid supplies that we hope we'll never need.

See you next week. Hammered
