I've been in touch with a fellow from Pensacola who will be moving here around Easter. He loves the game and I have word that he's a bruiser. That means we need to make sure we're on top of our game for his arrival. So this Sunday at 5 there will be a mallet making session at The Peddler on Highland. Poles and mallet heads will be provided but you need to bring the hardware, a 1/4"-20 bolt and nut which will cost you about a buck at a hardware store. If we have time we will also ride over to Audobon Park and check out a possible new court.

Our friend Rocky informs us it's circular, flat and enclosed by ledge steps. It should make for a rather interesting court. If you have any questions post them in the comments section.

That looks even smaller than the are we have now. I guess we'll just have to check it out! What length do we need for those bolts? Was it 3" then hack off the extra or is it longer? Maybe we can just all roll to Home Depot first get what we need then go by the possible new court, then back to the shop? Just an idea.

I like that idea.

I have an angle grinder I can bring in case some of the bolts are too long we can cut them off and make em' schmoove. Need any extra pipe?
