Looks like warm and sunny weather for our tournament tomorrow. We have the option to play our matches outdoors if we so choose. I have tables and chairs all set up for 14 players if we select this option. Otherwise the basement is available, with seating for 32 players.
Liz and I need to take a break from cooking. I will go fetch excellent take-out food from "Wicked Slice" a new shop only 2 miles away. I will have menus available. Select what you want for lunch so we may take a lunch break between rounds one and two. (approx. 1:30 pm).
They have delicious thin crust pizza, white and red. Calzones, paninis, subs, salads, soups, wings, fries, and much more. I look forward to another fun time. Will Rob Roy do a Three-Peat ?
