Planes fly in both directions.

Don't make a challenge, make an appearance. I'll even pay the $6 for you, so long as you buy me a beer when we beat you.

Hehe. Doesn't our champion play in Burlington? I should head up there one of these weekends to play a few rounds with them.

Where in California exactly are games being played,
I wonder?

I don't think I'll be able to make the game this weekend, so you better bring you bike to the last game.

Since when does rain matter?

I've been trying to get games going here in LA for a while now, but it seems to be really hard to get people who've expressed interest to even come out for a game. So far I've only ever seen one person from the seven or eight who responded to my initial inquiries, and he only came once. I do have two friends who are regulars and they sometimes bring their housemate, but it would sure be nice to have more than four people so that "getting out" actually means something.

I'm not really the person to answer this, but I'll give it a shot. You need to advertise, advertise, advertise. Posters, Craigslist, sidewalk chalk, you name it, and set that all up so people can go and play on a whim. Helps if you can get a lot of pedestrian traffic too.

You also might want to check out MySpace. I've seen a number of little communities who play the game, none quite as organized as we are, but some of them might be active and might just be in your neighborhood.

Good luck David!

Silly not being logged in.

Find some very public places to play, foot traffic is an effective marketing tool. People are likely to see you playing and then want to join in and maybe return.

Call the papers or send an email about regular times and dates for games. Keep sending it. Eventually your persistence will pay off.

Its the second to last game too, so if you sunny California kids want to take shots at our champions (men's and women's) then you better git onit realll quicklike.
