It is well known that I can find a way to play TT in the most unlikely of places.  Just last week I was camped in an RV park in the desert outside of Congress, Az.  That is some 80 miles NW of Phoenix in the middle of nowhere.  But I found a TT table and there was even a "Table Tennis" event listed on the weekly activity calendar.  The first scheduled day no one showed up, but I put up the table and practiced serves for about an hour.  On the next scheduled day I got to meet and play with my new role model.

Reggie is in his seventies, has a silver medal in the Az senior TT championships, travels in his RV between British Columbia and Congress,Az each year, was a world class kayaker (having competed in 2 world championships for Canada), has completed a kayak crossing of the English channel, and continues to kayak and play TT even today.  I thought I was number one in the TT- kayaking bi-athilon event, but I am not even in Reggie's class. It is amazing the people you can meet on the other end of a TT table.

By the way,  Congress, Az is so remote that they do not even deliver mail.  You have to have a PO Box or just pick it up General Delivery.  Beautiful views of the mountains from the desert floor make it worthwhile visiting.

Mark - Who with his "old prospector returning from the desert" look fit in well in Congress, Az.
