There's a new wintertime activity available for islanders and visitors to Ocracoke. Every Thursday evening at 7 o'clock the Community Center will be open for ping pong. Tom Pahl discovered a ping pong table stored away next to the stage and brought it out. It is in nearly new condition, with a new net. There was even a box of paddles and balls. So if you're a veteran ping pong player, or just want to learn, come on out for an evening of fun and exercise.
I hadn't played in probably 40 years, but I did win a couple of games last night (OK I also lost big time once; got to perfect my spin!). It was great fun.
