They did it again. The People on the Corner cut our phone line. At least this time they admitted it and called it in. Those little orange and white flags mean buried phone line not put fence here. Sorry for the inconvenience. Mike

Last call for alcohol is 11:30. We want to be out of here by midnight as the staff have real jobs they need to attend to. As for me, I need to get home and throw a Frisbee for Leo before I sleep. Thanks, Mike and staff

 If the sand is hot or cold you will be glad you ordered some sand socks. I suggest trying Ted at VBGear.com (link to footwear, sand socks are at bottom of his page) in Marion, Iowa.

Again this year we are relaxing the Co-Ed rule. You can now play with 3 guys and 2 girls. 

If you cannot make your match please call 255-9004 after noon. Thanks
