Here is a link to the facebook event.
This tournament is going to happen September 15th/16th, weather permitting. We only have one court, and this is for Mankato and Minneapolis to play together prior to the Midwest Open on October 14th/15th, and the Midwest Club Championship on November 3rd/4th. This is mostly for fun, and we’ll be providing drinks and food.

I haven’t updated this in a while so here are a few things:
1. A reminder that Pickup happens every Thursday from 7pm to 10:30pm. Everyone is welcome, even if you don’t have the right equipment or anything.
2. League is in full-swing, on Sundays from 5pm to 7pm, with pickup before or after. This will continue for another two weeks and then we’ll have a friendly tournament near the end of July. Minneapolis will be invited (and better show up!)

This semester Pat M undertook a project to create some one-piece capped mallet heads. These are machined from rods of UHMW. For a first run, he did pretty damn well. Excellent work. This was just a fun project, these are not for sale (except locally!)

We also tapped the ends of some new MKE shafts. It works like a charm. No more coupler nuts.
