since when is the USA a commonwealth country?

Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia call themselves a "Commonwealth" rather than State right?

Either that, or this tournie is for Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK?

Pretty sure your second sentence must be right. The kind americans are hosting a tournament only for Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Some kind of peace offering or something.

"The official name of the state is the "Commonwealth of Massachusetts". Colloquially, it is often referred to simply as "the Commonwealth". While this designation is part of the state's official name, it has no practical implications. Massachusetts has the same position and powers within the United States as other states."

Does Allston have lights now?

You knows it

allston has always had lights. but they don't work.
this may likely be daylight only

so bring your magnifying glasses

allston has street lights year round under which we've played pickup for years. not great, but definitely good enough to play pickup. During softball season there are also stadium lights during the week, but lately they've been malfunctioning.

does the old "throw the mallet at the lights to turn them on" trick still work?

that street light is now fixed!!

Huh. Okay. I remember when I came a while ago it was darkzone.

Who wants to team up for this bad Larry?

You knows it

bikes are fine on the T on non peak hours (non-rush hour)..

if you guys need housing let us know what nights and how many and we'll put you up somewhere.

Caution! Bikes are never allowed on green line.

sorry bro, this is a semi-pro tourney only, no fullpros allowed

Currently looks like Friday night pickup might get rained out. If so, we will be having a get together at Nick Wald's place at 9 Cleveland Street, Somerville. We will prob have a keg.

Saturday morning the plan is to meet up at the Carson Beach court for 9am registration. We will split up into two groups at this point. We will reseed and resplit the groups at some point so everyone gets good games in all day.

If the morning rain is heavy we might push start time back a bit, so WATCH THIS SPACE. The rest of the weekend forecast is looking great, so we should get lots of polo in.

Saturday night we will have a group ride back to Allston, where we can all fit at a sweet chinese food place (Joyful Garden on Western Ave) that has cheap drinks/food. Scorpion bowls and fried rice..

Feel free to call me 2672427621 in case of emergency.

meet up at the castle island court. 4th and faragut. ie marine park. any questions call 2672427621 or 3019225853

nine am sharp

1. White Fang! Jav Jamie Addison bos
