Sunday 8/10

Our mallets took quite a beating Thursday night. We don't have more than a few functioning ones right now. I can't see how we can play a game today. I guess we'll need to do some mallet repair/building early this week to hopefully get in a game Thursday night.

For sure, y'all should build some more mallets for the club. Open ended pipe, ABS, HDPE, UHMW, whatever you can find. Seth still has 6-8 ski poles from the ski rental score.

I've seen or heard about heads anywhere from 3-7 inches long and 1 1/2 - 3 inches in diameter.

Make sure you get downhill ski poles. Cross Country ones are too thin and will not last. If you're going to use golf clubs, try to drill though them first. It's harder than you'd think.
