Re: Yoda Cup US Open 2020

LoL Drivers were partners on Lucky Loser! I was going to email you to be my partner! Nelson did it anyways picking you as my partner!

Re: Yoda Cup US Open 2020

Haha -  I’d missed that we are playing doubles on LL and when Nelson emailed to say that he’d picked a partner  for me he didn’t say who it was! (Does that make us train drivers? cool )
