Hey Kenny, good to hear from you!  Yep, this summer we will hit the courts for sure.  I'm going to be teaching a little bit at Bryn Mawr Country Club in Lincolnwood this summer, and I'm able to have guests for free.  We'll make it happen!  Be well, and let's stay in touch. 


Midnight Machete is doing well - gearing up for our official "2nd Season" with new designs due in a week or so... gonna be cool.  Thanks,   -Mike Mo Man

Hi Kenny, Welcome to the "Coaches and Pro's" arena! Sounds like you certainly have paid your "Due Diligence" on the front lines. Glad to have you aboard! What's the weather been like down there? Up here in Canada we've had a lousy summer.....probably won't get any better since we're now into FALL!!! By the way, love your tunes. Are you sure that's not Tom Petty singing???? You have a great voice man. Keep it up, we may see you either on the courts or on the tely! All the best, Sandyman
