A few final comments:

Show up!  Thank you. On time.  Thanks again. Last minute cancellations or no shows are bad form and trash the draw.  Don’t be that guy!

Your entry fee can be paid in cash, check, Apple Pay, or PayPal (no Venmo because my bank does not play nice with the Plaid platform…Sorry).  Please pay me when you check in at The Cedar Club.  You do not need to pay me before you matches begin.  Please seek me out upon your arrival at the Cedar Club for a match, lunch, dinner or whenever you get over there.  Please square up as soon as you arrive so I don’t have to hunt you down.

E-payment:  my cell is 414-702-8894 and my email is  Entry is $100.00 per player.

Please go directly to the venue listed on the draw for your 1st match and so on for subsequent following matches.  It is imperative that you check in at The Cedar Club at your earliest convenience.  In some cases, you may not have a match at The Cedar Club.  I still need you to check in even if you have been eliminated from the draw. Your Favor is located at The Cedar Club as is all the food for the event.

For those playing at Scott Schroeder’s house, please do not enter the house.  The Hockey rink locker room  will be open if you need to change and have a supply of balls (Code 7210 enter).    Scott’s court is located off Granville Road about ¾ of a mile South of Freistadt Road and ¼ of a mile North of Mequon Road. 10415 Vista View Circle.…East side of the road.

Balls will be at the venues for your matches, should a site be running low, please call me and let me know. Please only use 1 new ball per match…warm up with previously scratched balls.

Be courteous and kind at all venues.  If you make a mess, please pick it up.  Club cooperation is why we can do this event!

Be on time for your matches….if you are delayed due to an epic battle, call the number below so I can inform your next enemy.

If you see the following number calling you, pick up! 414-702-8894….You are welcome to text me as well following your match to report your match results.

Please call me after every match!

First In serves are always allowed in SMACK! for every match, so bring the heater, Cheater!

If you see an open court at The Cedar Club or any other venue, please do not commandeer the court.    I have all matches scheduled at relative, specific times for the entire day, so, that open court you see is usually not an “open” court.  You dig?  However,  I may be able to accommodate your immediate need to play by utilizing another venue…just ask.

Please don’t contact me and say anything resembling, “I can’t play” from this point forward.  If something suddenly came up, get a sub!

SMACK! Food:  Lunch is from 11:30am-2pm and dinner will be provided around 5:30pm.  All meals are meant for the people participating in the event.  However, if any of your fans would like to join us at The Cedar club to watch the event and enjoy some beverages, they are more than welcome.

SMACK! Prizes:  The cost of favors and food have hit my budget this year.  Usually, bracket winners earn a prize.  Those prizes are typically donated by really cool guys who have cool stuff to give away.  Unfortunately, prizes will only be awarded to the winners of the tournament this year.  The favor is cool, so hopefully, no tears will be shed.  If anyone would like to donate some prizes next year I am not picky about what we give away.

Thank you to all of those people who have helped me make SMACK! happen.  I mean it.  A special thank you to Aaron Gardner for being a total stud of a dude and his willingness to help with anything I needed to pull this event off.  Is there a nicer guy in MKE?  Nope.  He be it.  Scott Schroeder is the man too!  How many guys let complete strangers hang out in their back yard and play paddle.  One guy. Scott.  Thank you also to Matt Demet for securing the courts at The University Club and Butch Gebhardt for reserving the courts at MKE CC.

See you on Saturday and thank you for participating in the best event ever to be held on Super Bowl Saturday-
