    Wed 27 August 2008 at 11:21 pm

    Am confirmed for Monday at BTC!

  19. Wed 27 August 2008 at 11:34 pm

    @Teik: Can you try to make it on Wednesday, too? It will be fun, dude.

    @Mark L. and Raj (a.k.a. Number 5): Come on, you both live just down the road from The Pitch! See you on Wednesday?

    @Rajiv: I think you are right about the numbers at BTC. We should set a cap at 12 as we play within lines. The same number should also be the maximum at The Pitch.

  20. Benjamin Yeo
    Wed 27 August 2008 at 11:47 pm

    Tue & Thurs @ East Coast for me. Thx.

  21. rajiv
    Thu 28 August 2008 at 12:01 am

    Tom, I’m okay with a cap of either 12 or 14. You asked for a cap of 12, I put it up on the blog, no one responded, so a cap of 12 it is for now.

    That’s the way it works around here.

    I don’t think Teik can make Wednesdays or Thursdays.

    Try George, Mark C, Look Liew, Swee Hoe, Michael. SMS them if you like. You have their numbers. I’m not inclined to send out SMS chasers except to fill a vacancy arising very late on, but if you’re so inclined, you’re welcome to do so. You can SMS anyone on the list of those who play at Bukit Timah that I sent to you last Friday.

    And remind Heath to send me his details (I have his e-mail address, so just his age, mobile number, introducer and date of first participation) if he wants to continue receiving the e-mail updates from 1 September 2008 onwards.

  22. Sushil George
    Thu 28 August 2008 at 10:59 am

    I would like to add Lai Hock for Monday at BTC. (another former RJ footie that used to play with Ian)

    I will send his email address shortly.

    Thanks
    Sushil George

    Thu 28 August 2008 at 12:57 pm

    HI Rajiv

    include me in for thursday too . East Coast . Thanks

  24. Shankar
    Thu 28 August 2008 at 4:13 pm

    Thursday for me.

  25. rajiv
    Thu 28 August 2008 at 5:19 pm

    Llion, can I put you down for both Tuesday and Thursday for now? If later, you can’t make one, or decide not to play the second one, we can make the necessary adjustment.

    Confirmed so far:

    • Monday, 1 September, 8 to 10 pm, Bukit Timah Campus – Tom, Raj, Rajesh, Mark L, Sze Kuan, Sushil, Ian, Marc, Yu Teik, Lai Hock (10). Line ups:

    Reds: Tom, Rajesh, Sze Kuan, Ian, Yu Teik
    Lights: Raj, Mark L, Sushil, Marc, Lai Hock

    Maximum 2 more.

    • Tuesday, 2 September, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – Bobby, Llion, Sushil, John, Boon Yick, Reza, Joel, Gilbert, Benjamin (9). Minimum 1 more.

    • Wednesday, 3 September 2008, 8 to 9 pm, The Premier Pitch (Turf City) – Tom, Bobby, Rajesh, Ian, me (5). Minimum 5 more.

    • Thursday, 4 September 2008, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – Llion, Sushil, John, Murray, Benjamin, Rajesh, Shankar, me (8). Minimum 2 more.

    With increasing fitness and competitiveness, our sessions have become faster and more physical, and in particular, our 6 v 6 games have become somewhat frenetic, so I think I’ll cap the numbers at 10 and see how that goes.

    Looking ahead, with our increasing fitness, I think we could even manage 4 v 4 if numbers are short.

    If numbers are higher, I can just open up additional sessions.

  26. Swee Hoe
    Thu 28 August 2008 at 5:40 pm

    Monday, 1 September, 8 to 10 pm, Bukit Timah Campus: Confirmed.

  35. rajiv
    Fri 29 August 2008 at 6:11 pm

    Confirmations for next week are currently as follows:

    • Monday, 1 September, 8 to 10 pm, Bukit Timah Campus – Tom, Raj, Rajesh, Mark L, Sze Kuan, Sushil, Ian, Marc, Yu Teik, Lai Hock, Swee Hoe, Kin, Damian (13). With a cap of 12, Damian can only be on reserve and the line ups are as follows:

    Brights: Tom, Rajesh, Sze Kuan, Ian, Yu Teik, Swee Hoe
    Lights: Raj, Mark L, Sushil, Marc, Lai Hock, Kin

    Tom/Ian, I leave it to the two of you to decide whether to go of up to 14 for Monday. If you do, Damian will be with Brights, and the next person to confirm will be with Lights. Alternatively, you may wish to call/SMS those confirmed for Monday to see if any of them would like to play on Wednesday instead, in which case, if it’s anyone other than Damian, he can take their place on Monday.

    • Tuesday, 2 September, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – Bobby, Sushil, John, Boon Yick, Reza, Joel, Gilbert, Benjamin, Joe, Edardy (10). As matters stand, with a cap of 10, Rajesh is on reserve in case anyone pulls out.

    Llion, as I understand your confirmation to mean you’ll play either Tuesday or Thursday, and as we now have at least 10 for Tuesday without including you, I’ll take you out from Tuesday and leave you on for Thursday, if that’s ok with you. If you want to play on Tuesday, I’ll consider increasing the number to 12 for this session.

    • Wednesday, 3 September 2008, 8 to 9 pm, The Premier Pitch (Turf City) – Tom, Bobby, Rajesh, Ian, Joe, me (6). Minimum 4 more.

    • Thursday, 4 September 2008, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – Llion, Sushil, John, Murray, Benjamin, Rajesh, Shankar, Edardy, me (9). Minimum 1 more.

    Fri 29 August 2008 at 8:01 pm

    am on for thursday

  37. Andy Nethercleft
    Fri 29 August 2008 at 9:50 pm

    If anyone drops out on Thursday I am happy to replace to keep it 5 aside.

  38. rajiv
    Sat 30 August 2008 at 12:45 am

    Sushil has very kindly agreed to give up his place on Thursday and be placed on reserve.

    I asked Sushil whether he minded switching to Wednesday or being put on reserve for Thursday.

    I asked him as he and Rajesh were the only two who were scheduled to play three times next week, and Rajesh is already playing on Wednesday and on reserve for Tuesday.

    If Rajesh gets to play on Tuesday, I’ll then ask him to give up his Thursday place to Sushil – that way, they both get to play three sessions next week.

    I do try to guarantee everyone who wants to play at least one, if not two slots, and Andy N is not playing any other day next week.

    If I can, I’m trying to avoid switching to 12 for any of the Tuesday to Thursday sessions next week, but I will if I have to. If numbers are consistently high, as indicated above, I’ll open up an additional session in a subsequent week.

    If anyone scheduled to play on Tuesday or Thursday (but not on Wednesday) can switch to Wednesday, that would be good, as it would open up an additional place on either of those two days, which are both currently oversubscribed.

  39. Ian
    Sat 30 August 2008 at 12:57 pm

    Unfortunately, I had overestimated my powers of a quick recovery as my calf injury sustained last Monday is still pretty sore. I’m certain my injuries used to heal faster when we played at RJC. Strange.

    To be fair to the others who are fit, better put me on reserve for Monday at BTC as I am at best still only 50-50.

  40. Ooi Yu Tei
    Sat 30 August 2008 at 11:18 pm

    Sorry guys, I have to pull out of MOnday’s game. Have a late meeting. Tom, Ray, PLEASE do not record the game without your star player.

    Cheers.

    PS – getting old Ian. We aren’t the mean machine we used to be anymore!

  41. Llion
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 8:54 am

    thursday fine by me

  42. rajiv
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 8:58 am

    As things currently stand, confirmations for this week are as follows:

    • Tonight, 8 to 10 pm, Bukit Timah Campus – Tom, Raj, Rajesh, Mark L, Sze Kuan, Sushil, Ian (subject to recovery from injury), Marc, Lai Hock, Swee Hoe, Kin, Damian (12). To accommodate Raj’s dress sense, Tom can sort out the teams (with the use of the red bibs) at the session itself.

    Tom, can you either get a volunteer to do the session report, or to do it yourself? If whoever volunteers doesn’t have a WordPress account, can you put up an introductory post in response to which that person can submit the report as a comment? Thanks.

    • Tomorrow (Tuesday) night, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – Bobby, Sushil, John, Boon Yick, Reza, Joel, Gilbert, Benjamin, Joe, Edardy, Rajesh (11). As matters stand, with a cap of 10, Rajesh is on reserve in case anyone pulls out. Line ups as follows:

    Lights: Bobby, John, Reza, Gilbert, Joe
    Darks: Sushil, Boon Yick, Joel, Benjamin, Edardy

    I’ll arrange to hand over the ball to anyone who is playing tomorrow.

    Sushil or Gilbert, can either of you do me a favour and pay S$80 at the Sports Planet office and collect S$8 per person? John, Reza or Joe, can one of you do the session report? Thanks.

    • Wednesday, 3 September 2008, 8 to 9 pm, The Premier Pitch (Turf City) – Tom, Bobby, Rajesh, Ian, Joe, me (6). Minimum 4 more. Damian, as spoken on Saturday, can you play on Wednesday in addition to (with the wife’s permission to play a second session) or in place of (if permission is not granted) of Monday? Any of your Nokia team-mates want to play? Sriram, as also spoken on Saturday, are you playing on Wednesday?

    • Thursday, 4 September 2008, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – Llion, Sushil, John, Murray, Benjamin, Rajesh, Shankar, Edardy, Ronak, Andy N, me (11). As matters stand, with a cap of 10, Sushil has agreed to be on reserve in case anyone pulls out.

    Alternatively, as I’ve said above, if anyone scheduled to play on Tuesday or Thursday (but not scheduled to play on Wednesday) can switch to Wednesday instead, it would open up an additional place on one or both of those days which are currently oversubscribed.

  43. Edardy
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 9:20 am

    Just to redirect some attention.. there’s a link on the left navigation bar called An Ad. Check it out. Its about a lovely 3 bedroom apartment for rent in Geylang. 5 mins walk to the MRT. Thanks Rajiv for putting it up!

  44. Julius
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 9:45 am

    Hi – Can I play Wednesday at turf city please?

  45. Ian
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 10:10 am

    Jiv, as spoken last night, doesn’t look like I’ll pass the late fitness test today. Raj will bring the ball and is also charged with the responsibility of collecting the $3 from everyone tonight.

  46. rajiv
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 10:13 am

    Ok Ian. While Raj is at it, he can sort out the line ups (does he have the red bibs?) and write the session report as well.

    Unless Damian switches to Wednesday, leaving 10 for tonight’s session, he’ll need one more person to make even numbers. You or Raj might want to check with Damian. Both of you should have Damian’s contact details from my e-mail of Friday before last.

    As latecoming is usually an issue on Monday nights at Bukit Timah campus, Raj may also wish to remind everyone playing tonight to be on time, and inform them of any other matter relating to tonight’s session as he thinks fit. Again, he has all relevant contact details.

  47. Bobby
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 4:20 pm

    Joe & I will have to withdraw from the Wed 3-Sep session.
    We’re still on for Tues @ East Coast, though.

  48. Joel
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 6:11 pm

    Hi – just to confirm that I cannot make tomorrow night’s game. See you all next week.
    Thanks
    Joel

  49. rajiv
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 9:46 pm

    We are down to 5 for Wednesday at Premier Pitch, Turf City – Tom, Rajesh, Ian, Julius, me. We need 5 more by tomorrow afternoon for the session to go ahead.

  50. rajesh
    Mon 1 September 2008 at 11:08 pm

    Hi Rajiv

    I will be out this week. Will need at least a week to recover my ankle problem after tonight’s match. Hardly can walk . Sorry

  51. rajiv
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 7:22 am

    Ok Rajesh. Is this the ankle injury you picked up in July? If it is, give yourself sufficient time to recover properly.

    Sriram has a prior engagement, Damian is away this Wednesday, and none of his Nokia team-mates can make it this Wednesday, so with Rajesh out, we are down to 4 for Wednesday.

    I’ll have to cancel Wednesday’s session then.

    Without Rajesh, we are also down to 9 for tonight and Thursday night. I can play tonight. Sushil, who is on reserve for Thursday, has informed me that he might not be able to make it, so minimum 1 more for each of tonight and Thursday night. As Wednesday’s session is to be cancelled, if necessary, I’ll go up to 12 for both Tuesday and Thursday so that everyone who wants to gets the chance to play, or even play twice, this week.

  52. Bobby
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 8:36 am

    put me down for Thurs @ East Coast if slot is still open.

  53. Julius
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 9:06 am

    I will play tonight (Tuesday)

  54. Raj
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 9:46 am

    Rajesh, hope the ankle recovers fast. Apologies for yesterdays bickering.

  55. rajesh
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 10:09 am

    Hi Raj

    No worries. Its part of the game and i was actually having fun.

    Hi Rajiv

    One week rest should do for my ankle. Will get back in action next week . Thanks for your understanding.

  56. rajiv
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 12:03 pm

    Raj, are you or Tom doing the report for last night’s session? If it’s you, will Tom be putting up the introductory post, or do you need me to do it? You can tell us all about the “bickering” in the report.

    Rajesh, if your ankle is inflamed, you might want to try Danzen or any other generic over-the-counter medication containing serrapeptase.

  57. rajiv
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 4:00 pm

    Revised line ups for tonight, 9 to 10 pm at Sports Planet @ East Coast:

    • Lights – Bobby, John, Reza, Gilbert, Joe
    • Darks – Sushil, Boon Yick, Benjamin, Edardy, Julius.

    Please be there by 8.45 pm, and use any waiting time to warm up. Benjamin, don’t be late!

    If anyone else wants to play tonight, please confirm. I can also play, so we can go up to 12 if necessary.

    Confirmed for Thursday, 4 September 2008, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – Llion, John, Murray, Benjamin, Shankar, Edardy, Ronak, Andy N, Bobby, me (10). Line ups:

  59. rajesh
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 5:12 pm

    Anyway just to share with you that before coming for the game last night , i actually met with a small accident but did not know that the damage caused to the other car was pretty bad. Guy was driving a 17 yrs old toyota car and i was turning in from PIE bukit Timah beside the shell station turning left. That A s s had to stop in the yellow box and i was looking out for oncoming cars but missed his car.

    Anyway damage to his car $500 just confirmed this afternoon with the workshop and my car at $300 .

    Since not being selfish , i am going down later to buy 1602 4d . That is my car number.Results will be out tomorrow evening ( for those who have never bought in their life before ). Good luck. Just pay me 10% commission if you do strike.LOL . Just kidding.

  60. rajiv
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 6:45 pm

    Thanks Juha.

    Come down to Sports Planet @ East Coast (you know the place? – the old Singapore Tennis Centre along East Coast) at 8.45 pm if you can make it. You’ll recognize Edardy, John, Sushil and me from Saturday.

    I’ve e-mailed you my mobile number. SMS me if you’re coming.

    Thanks for the tip Rajesh. I hope someone strikes with your number.

  61. Juha
    Tue 2 September 2008 at 6:53 pm

    No worries Andy N, Andy M is available to take your place. And don’t forget to confirm early if you would like to play next week.

    Andy M, there is currently no priority between participants on the Contact List and guests/newcomers in their first month. In any event, as I stated earlier, all you need to do to get onto the Contact List is e-mail me your Name, Age, E-Mail Address (at which you prefer to receive Updates/Extras), Contact Number and Introducer.

    • Darks – Llion, Murray, Shankar, Ronak, Bobby.
