|A chance to see world class womens tennis is here. As you are out and about you probably have seen the Tennis setup for a touney. Here is the link to the touney, http://www.bankofthewestclassic.com/site4.aspx and as you can see this promises to be an exciting event. You can purchase tickets directly on line using this link.|
We intend to go for a 2-day trip on Saturday and Sunday on Road 49 (and possibly 36 and 120).
For those who want to rent a motorbike, we have identified and tested a renter in Mountain View (15 min drive from the campus) please let me know and I will make a reservation tomorrow or Thursday the latest. We would pick-up the bikes on Friday around 6 PM and could go to Palo Alto for a while on Friday evening.
PS: for those who have personal constraints, this is just to let you know
I have the ‘votes’ for the Las Vegas trip, which you can see below. I am going to send out a reminder to all the SEP group, plus put a notice on the board. Please also speak to your colleagues if you think anyone is interested but has not responded yet.
By Sunday evening therefore we should have firm numbers, can book flights, and can take Chris Schimek up on his kind offer to point us in the right direction in terms of booking hotels.
For those interested in a short weekend, I have opted for the 26th and 27th July on the basis of preferences expressed so far, and on the basis that this will give people time to recover if they are planning any trips on the mid-term break.
You will see there is a larger group for the short weekend. Can you let me know if any of you want to change your preferences (SEE BELOW).
2nd Half Weekend
Gunter Schauble, (26th / 27th)

We’re going to play Ultimate Frisbee tomorrow afternoon on the soccer field/football pitch. We decided to play Ultimate since it is a lot of fun and is easy to play since the rules are simple.
For those of you who’ve never played, Ultimate Frisbee is kind of like a non-contact version of American/Canadian football, expect played with a Frisbee and you can only pass the Frisbee and not run with it. You pass a Frisbee from team member to team member until you get across the goal line.
We welcome everyone to come and play or watch and we’ll have a keg of American beer for those who get thirsty.
Here are the rules for those who want to play, but we’ll also give a quick demonstration prior to the game.
