Alameda TTC announces "Ping
Pong Stimulus Program"
Since it is readily apparent that congress lacks the ability to pass any meaningful and effective economic stimulus program. ATTC has decided to step up and take on this important task ourselves.
Effective February 1 ATTC will implement its “Ping-Pong Stimulus program”. Key components of the program include. “One Dollar Wednesdays” and “five dollar family Sundays”. Additionally the Alameda TTC Yahoo group contains a coupon for 50% off February monthly membership.
Dave H. AlphaPong owner and Alameda TTC
partner explained how the program will work. “When Bob comes in on a
Wednesday and pays $1 instead of five, that saves $4 that he can then
spend into the local economy. So now instead of Bob packing a Bologna
sandwich for lunch, he can now visit the Falafel Hut and purchase a
falafel roll. Now with the increase in business Mustafa the owner of the
Falafel Hut can now expand and hire more local workers who also spend
into the economy. Soon Mustafa will be able to expand nation wide and
put hundreds of people to work making delicious falafel. We can expect
that very soon we will see the economy rebound and a big drop in the
unemployment rate. Also since we know that “as California goes, so goes
the nation” we can soon expect a tremendous increase in the popularity
of Table Tennis nation wide. Since table tennis is a very healthy and
enjoyable sport, this could well be just what is needed to save our
failing health care system and keep thousands off antidepressants.”

Recently bright lights have been seen suspended in the skies above the ATTC facility. So far the lights have been witnessed by over 100 people.
Many theories have been put forward. Mass hallucination? UFOs? Angelic beings? Extra terrestrials?
Others have pointed out that they are just the result of the recent lighting upgrade. 6 fixtures were upgraded and as a result the ATTC gym now has bright and even lighting throughout the gym.
We suggest you come and decide for yourself.
