Another venue change

This is not an April Fools... the Collierville Park Commission called me today - the pavilion we were to play at was double booked accidentally. We are being moved to a old soccer field at Johnson Park in Collierville. This will give us more room to put in courts, and the Collierville Park commission is even going to put up a tent for us.

Here is a map: . It is the back soccer field across the lake from the 2 soccer fields they use. It shares the parking lot with the Wolf River bottoms walkway. I walked it today - it has a lot of level areas to setup courts and we should be able to find areas that drain pretty well in case we get a lot of rain on Friday.
