I like the Medusa-esque design! I feel sorry her face looks so beat up.
Full disclosure, I have forgotten how to play euchre. See yinz in June!

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

Hey guys! This is exactly where I wanted the tournament to be - dufferin grove is the best damn park in toronto. To be clear, this drypad is right parallel the rink? where the kids skate? are you sure it's wide enough?!

ladies army doesn't need to follow NAH standard court dimensions. You know, we do us... kicking the small children off the public courts so we can smash the fuck out of each other.
(yup, the dry pad is right next door to the rink.)

Hey, Patti! I don't care about nah regulations but do you have approximate dimensions of this side court?

Is there anyone going to this from the East Coast, who would possibly mind picking me up in Buffalo en route to Toronto? I've taken Amtrak once between the two cities, and honestly, I'd rather carpool. I could provide gas money.

The megabus is like $15 and will drop you off right downtown, if it comes to that.

There's one from Buff airport and one downtown.

Never done it by train.

I WANNA GO SO BAD.

Need team.

It's me, Erin, your ol' pal from London/Brisbane/anywhere you want me to be from

NERG!

Me toooo I really really really wanna go. Need team in order to do so.

Any team in the market for thirds is crazy not to snag you. If all teams are full up I don't mind teaming up and hunting down a third. I'm sure their are more fence sitters out there we can coax into coming to Toronto, it's kind of an awesome place shouldn't be to difficult.

O

Thanks O-Face, working on making my tornado girl come out for this too.

NERG!

Oleha and anyone else looking for a team...I am in for sure if I can get one together. Get in touch if you're still looking...

Do it!

are you still thinking of going/looking for a team?

Yay!!! I'm excited to see Sango slay again this year!

Midwest is best!!

Wow! Thank you Meg for ur comment. you are too nice! We are really excited for our third year but also worried we haven't practiced enough. We'll work on it...

So i have a space to stay during the tournament but I am thinking that I would like to check out Toronto a little. Should I fill out the housing form for this request (even though I have a space for the event) or is there someone who has some spare couch space for a few days after LA?
I'm great at doing dishes! and don't take up much space!
