WEEK IN REVIEW: Clinic, pickup, practice...

First... happy birthday to me. I'm going on a cruise down the Yangtze toward Yichang from Chongqing to "celebrate."

Second, and more importantly, Alicia is holding a FREE clinic on Saturday at Happy Valley fields. (Why do we still call these fields Happy Valley? They're obviously Xiaowuji fields.) This will be followed by two hours of pickup (30 rmb). Please see the Google Groups Post of the Week, below, for more details.

And third -- love numbered lists, especially when the numbers are written out -- Big Brother is preparing for the Dalian tournament on September 11-12. It's going to be spectacular. Anyone in Beijing who's interested, please let us know -- and come out to practice!

There will be one van leaving at 12pm and one leaving at 2pm to go over to the fields. Meet at the McDonalds outside Exit C of Dongzhimen subway station.

If you are planning to go on your own, the directions from Dawanglu (subway stop line 1):

Take East Fourth Ring Road going south and tell driver to get off at the Shi Ba Li Dian Qiao exit (十八里店桥), i.e. Exit No. 16. At the first bridge, i.e. Shi Ba Li Dian NORTH Qiao (or "qiao bei"), make a U-turn. You'll then want to make the 2nd right, i.e. turn into the neighborhood with a huge arch that says "Xiao Wu Ji Village Welcomes You" (小武技村欢迎你). Go down that street about 600 meters and make the first left (where there's a street). The fields will soon become visible on your left. (Map is attached.)

If you are coming from Wudaokou, contact Mike Shyu to get on the van together.

Any questions, email Alicia.
