      Next time, we have to do this at a train station accessible club not named SpinNY (like Lily Yip or NJTTC), so people can drive without paying tolls through their noses and parking through their asses.

      Right on!

      Of the two, I recommend LYTTC as there's more of a chance that we can get a dedicated table there.

      I would have liked to come there to meet Der_Echte (heard he plays a bit like BH_Man does) & UDC but it's just difficult to get to.

      I recommend that y'll New Yorkers plan a NJ clubs visit - we all can hit a few clubs together.

      I have not been to Westfield, Lily Yips, Westchester or Trolley Car and i would like to visit...So these would be good options for me. This will be like the yearly Carnival/Street Fair(Der_Echte) that rolls into town. Should we make posters and banners with Der_Echtes face on it?

      Der_Echte in NYC

      Hey, Lily's club is pretty amazing. I am up for setting up a day to do that. Last time I went there it was to hang out with Matt Hetherington and it was on a Sunday. It actually took me 4 hours to get there because the path train to the commuter train was all messed up. But I would still go again because that club is awesome.

      So we will plan another TT adventure soon.

      The reason I decided that we should try going to NYISC was that I asked Edmund which club in the Flushing area would be best for these circumstances and he said Shao Yu's club. I have never been there. And he may not have been considering tolls or public transportation. I think, when he goes, he drives. And someone from NYC knows how to drive and avoid all the tolls. Like 59th Street Bridge. But I figured, Edmund has been to every club ever in existence and he would know what would be best for a crew showing up to have some fun.

      But, hey, if this is the start of a larger scale East Coast TT crew gathering, then we can travel to a bunch of places one adventure at a time.

      Trolley Car has the best parking situation but it is not central nor easily train accessible from NY. Lily has the best playing situation and is next to a train station. Parking is usually decent as well. Westfield has a better parking situation but table availability varies as they have only 8 tables. It is also next to a train station.

      Another future possibility is the NJ Korean club in Palisades Park. Tables and beer and 2500 level coaches.

      Lily Yips club has got to be top five on the east coast. I went there for a training camp this year but I never went when there were no assigned tables. I would like to go to the Westfield one also. Even though it's a long commute from NYC, it's not that bad because the train stops at both westfield and dunellen

      Westchester and Lily Yip are #1 and #2 in some order in terms of facilities. Everyone else lags significantly in some respect - the main reason MDTTC lags is age related - if they had the same people start it today, they would be different. You see something similar in Princeton Pong, though that club doesn't have wooden floors. I haven't played in clubs below the DC line though, so there might be something in North Carolina or Florida. I haven't seen Smash TT yet either. But my feeling is that it is unlikely that anything will compare to those 2 given the financial investments that were made to create both clubs.

      I would agree. I think Lily 's might have better coaching. They bring in chinese coaches and have great juniors there. Westchester also has great camps though.

      Lily even brought in this Kiwi from New Zealand. Flew him all the way here to coach the kids. What was his name again?

      Yeah, but Matt decided he had more important stuff to do than see me at lily yips... stupid stuff like training in china, playing in the China open, trying out for the New Zealand national team... what a jerk, right? Haha

      Lol no wonder he has no backhand? What you think I can't teach people how to play a backhand or something?

      He has a long way to go, Lily has been working with him a lot especially now that I'm out of the country. He's a smart kid but tends to get a bit soft and often backed off the table where he really struggles to stay in rallies, especially if people are giving him a lot of variation. Props to him though he never gives up on a ball!
