    Evening pick up hoops in Ames?

    I know I've gotten some good advice in the past from some of you goofballs, so thought I'd throw this one out there as well.

    Need to find an place to play basketball during the week after work, and would appreciate any advice you guys (and gals) can offer.

    TIA!

    There are always games going down at Lied Rec. Friday afternoons a lot of guys play at Beyer Hall.

    If you play the Lied, just avoid court 1. Only about 1 in 10 games ever get finished on that court.

    There is always stuff going on at Lied but yea, you do need to be a student or employee, But Beyer usually has good games if they don't have volleyball or dodgeball or something.

    Do they play over at Beyer in the eves?

    I think I can get a pass to Lied if I have to, so may go that route if Beyer isn't used that often.

    Yeah...I played with you guys a few times, but I usually need to be at work by 7:30 and I didn't want to bail early, but think I will start coming there those days, that's a good group of guys to play with.

    If you think you can find a way into Lied, that's the way to go. Generally around 6-8 games going on at the same time from about 6:30-7 until 10 or so...
