San Diego Single Tail Whip Practice

From Drew:

“A Decade Long Tradition Continues”

Saturday, January 12, 2013 ·10AM –Noon
Location:  North of Kearn's Memorial Pool Parking Lot in the Morley Field Complex
at the corner of Texas St. and Upas St., San Diego, CA
Cost: Free
Dress code: Street Legal and Casual, Bring Your Single Tails.

As I restart this practice which has run on and off for more than a decade I have had some good inputs and we have a new place to practice. We are going to meet on the First Sundays on even months and Second Saturdays on odd months.

The practice place is a grassy area around some picnic tables just north of the parking lot for the Kearn’s Memorial Swimming Pool in the Morley Field Complex. Finding me should be easy: you just get to the corner of Texas St. and Upas St. and turn into the complex on the extension of Texas St. As you drive into the complex and approach the pool, the parking lot on your left is where to park. Just north of the parking lot is a group of picnic tables and I will be at one of them.

New member Alex, with a whip that he made himself!

There are several suitable areas with good grass to the East of the picnic tables and we will not have to spread out much to have room to accommodate a large number of people practicing. There are also public restrooms in the tennis complex to the west of our meeting area. If we end up in conflict with any other users of the facilities there are a few places just to the east to which we could walk.

Practice Stand - (whip this instead of people)

This is a public place and dress and behavior should be appropriate. The intent is to build skills with single tail whips so you might want to improvise a target/target stand but I plan to bring at least one I would be happy to share. I also bring a number of loaner whips for those without whips and I am always willing to coach a bit if you want some help. Let’s make sure we leave the place as nice as (or nicer) than we find it.


Happy cracking, Drew
