Throwing up a hail mary here.

 

Greene Turtle in McHenry Row hosts free MDBP tournaments each Thursday night at 9 pm.  With the concert and preseason game, my supply of partners has run dry.  Anyone interested in playing? Winning team gets $40 towards their bar tab.

I'm recently "retired" from the scene but I will check around and see if I know anyone going tonight for you. The weeklies are tough to find partners for though unless you live in the neighborhood.

Wow, not sure how I've never made that connection before. I've already run through most of the regulars so don't put too much effort into it. Been trying to get some new faces out to help Austin a bit, just not easy with the 9pm start.

Yeah, it's up and down with the late nights and summer. Especially with so many of them right now. Had the same problem a few years back when they tried to really launch the weeklies.

 

I tried Joey Dynamite since he'll be up that way tonight but he said he's not planning on going to the Turtle. The JT/JayZ concert has knocked out a big chunk of people you could check with too.

 

Sorry man, wish I could be more help but I've been really trying to back off things. It's really trying for me to walk away from ECBPC, but I'm trying to stick to it for now.

Yeah you drink out of your own cup on the side, it's much less dirty, and the way liquor laws work they won't let you play with booze in the cups in bars.

They weren't able to get enough teams tonight anyway between the concert and game. Bumping it up to 7 next week. Hopefully that will help. Always amazes me that they get better weeknight turnouts in Columbia than in Fed Hill.

Yeah I had wondered if that was going to happen this week. I saw the convo about moving it up a bit, I've said forever I think if it was done on the tail end of happy hour it would do a lot better, but pros and cons, you cater to the young professionals that have to work and then the kids that don't work and only go out late will whine. No perfect answers in MDBP.

 

Columbia has always been a tough draw too, we've tried on and off for years, I'm surprised it doesn't do better. College Park draws like 32-40 teams every Wednesday, it's insane, but of course that's helped by being on campus at THE place to go, downstairs of a giant condo complex.

 

Just wait, once summer winds down in a couple weeks things will really pick up in Sept as far as tourneys and big time stuff, the sweet spot every year is like Sept-Jan with the build up to States and then WS.

Yeah, they have a WS satellite coming up 9/13 that should get the ball rolling for the fall. On a different note, I like how they have switched up the squad play for summer league this year. A bit more casual, and playing more games each week.

Yep, it'll be like every 2 weeks or so after that. All the big guns will start to travel for those though, you'll see all the VA kids, NY etc start to show up for those, it gets a little crazy.

 

Yeah I heard his little tweaks were pretty cool, I never got all the details though cause I told everyone I probably wouldn't even sub for this one. Just too much going on all summer.

Oh word, that makes sense. Thanks for educating me! I wanna do this sometime to see how my skills compare to the pros.

Thanks Kevin! MP, you should hit him up if you are going to pop in one night, he'd be a good person to show you the ropes.

Does this ever take place in Fells/Canton? I'm a Southeast resident and don't like to leave my quadrant!

Not the free weeklies, unfortunately. They have league play at 2pm on Sundays at Dark Horse, Horse With No Name, or whatever it is currently called. Can probably squeeze in some table time if you're there early or between games.

Playoffs are this Sunday at 2 at Horse With No Name if you are around. Scope out the competition with the O's on the big screen. Should be able to find table space once teams get knocked out if you wanted to play some.
