if you examine trent's chart for hoops attendance, we have been falling the optimum range for best games. don't let this deter you. i know how it is. mark sends out email complimenting numbers, and you all take off for a few weeks.

don't let this happen! trent will not be happy.

show up and keep trent happy. remember: a happy trent is a happy trent.

for those of you who have missed this chart in the past, i have included it for your knowledge.

keeping the numbers

the holiday monday surge of players is always nice. the best part is being able to keep the numbers up after the holiday. that's what we are shooting for tomorrow morning. good numbers.

to help remind you of the fun times here's a pic from monday. i am not sure, but i believe mitch is showing his dance moves to "the dove."

"now is the time on hoops when we dance."

we play!

looks like we have the numbers for a memorial day play day. tomorrow morning, at the same time(6:00), we play!

happy memorial day! and if you have served or are serving, thanks!

tomorrow and monday

i hope cary wasn't battered on wednesday. i haven't heard anything about it, so we'll go with the no-news-is-good-news rule.

friday is a normal day. hoops as usual.

i currently have a six count for monday. i'm an "uncertain" still due to my knee. i do have an appointment to have it seen by a medical professional, so that should provide more data in me making that decision. i would say we need at least two more solids to warrant an early holiday wake up. what say you?

don't beat on cary

i don't know what went down on monday, but go easy on cary. he's way too old to be treated like a 30 year old. his body is falling apart, and he's in constant pain. he might look young and fit, but don't let appearances deceive you. beneath the surface, he's a wreck. and his car is wack. just keep it all in mind.

other than that, have fun!

oh, i need to ask: memorial day is monday. given our latest attendance, it is prudent to check to see how many are planning (definitely) to be there. head count?

weather or not

don't let today's weather cloud (har, har) your decision about playing tomorrow morning. there is safety in the gym. there is also safety in numbers, so we'll need you.

so, be there.

all the fun

see all the fun in the picture? that was real. we offer same fun tomorrow. come for it.

middle of may

that sounds a good enough excuse to get up and play some hoops. and if not, remember that your team probably needs you.

see you all tomorrow morning!

thanks for the eight

friday was great having eight. can we do that again tomorrow? it would be great. wouldn't you say?

another seven

had seven on wednesday again. why so close and yet so far? we have one more chance this week to get the right number.

(for questions on what's the right number, please check back through your email for trent's guide on optimal numbers.)

trying again

we had seven on monday. that's mostly my fault for not getting a count earlier to manage responses. but we're on tomorrow, no asking, no debating. if you show, you play. if you don't show, you'll have to work off your lunch in some other manner.

i do have to say that for the 3-on-3 we did have on monday, those were some rather balanced teams. challenge was not lost that morning.

and i promise no setting up for another month.

on for monday

we have the eight. see you tomorrow.

perhaps a count

as we only had six on friday (until pirate dave renamed his ankle to jack), i thought we might getna head count to see if it is worth us waking up early.

so, call it. yea or nay. need eight for it to count.

9 < 10

that's a true statement. the nine who came wednesday know it to be true so well.

one more could have brought the balance we needed.
