American Wanderer

Hi there. I'm a recently graduated American with the wanderlust. I actually found this forum awhile back when I was trying to find a place to play some pickup games of basketball. While I wasn't actually able to find anywhere to play, this forum WAS useful as it informed me that basketball really isn't really played that much! Haha, even though there are basketball hoops at every school. Oh well.

One question I do have, however, is how do you Thank or Groan at a post? Can't figure that out.

Thanks, and glad to be here.

Hi there, yes there is plenty of games around just go to the smaller communities Id say...I have seen them more often there.

Re: American Wanderer

Welcome to the Forum and hope you enjoy quaint Oberhasli... as Anthony noted, you need 10 posts (and 10 days since registration I believe) until you can groan and thank people.

Try to go to the Haslisee on the weekends and go over to the school (theres two), they used to play BB there quite regularely, just the young ones though.. otherwise the people on here or a local sports club would be the obvious choice...

Cheers
al

Re: American Wanderer

Hello and welcome! Maybe you could start your own pick up game. Post the time and place on the calendar & see what comes of it
