Well, it ain't like the old days.
When we'd put up three nets at Burns Park and attracted 50 members and friends for the complete range of play from beginner to expert-ish. Trouble was we got too good scaring away the newbies and they went over to our friends the Ann Arbor Adventure Club where the play is less intense. No Lie!
Curses! Newbies are the life-blood of any sustainable activity!
Nowadays we join them, sometimes taking along one of our nets and a dozen players willing to show them how the game is really played. It's good fun.
