    It is about time now to up the ante. Boston Open has been so far the biggest prize tournament excluding US OPEN. In fact, last year total prize moneywas $ 17,000.00. That will put some pressure to BO Organizer to step it up too. I am liking it ....it definitely will be good for the sport !!!

    awesome job by Ben and BBC staff to pull this one off!! my jaws were dangling on the floor when Ben first told me about it.

    such prize money will certainly attract lots of high caliber players from all over the world to compete. this is great for the development of badminton.

    i wonder who the sponsors are too. ;)

    whoever they are, we need to send them a thank you note so that they know their money has been well spent.

    as for pics, well of course, as always love to provide my service. esp since BBC has awesome lighting and good lighting always make good photos.

    That is great! If the local clubs willing to combine their resources, maybe it is possible to have a bigger tournament, which LD, LCW, TH might be willing to come and play. Hint, hint: US Open? ;)

    BTW, I hope BBC would publicize all the sponsor names more then they ask for. Those of us in the bay area should buy and use their services as much as we possibly can. This is all marketing. If the sponsor can see the leads, referral, exposure, and new business as result of the sponsor, it is easy for them to justify doing it again or even bigger next time. Way to go! :)

    Hmm..

    ..yes, hope our Don Chew will step up the ante, too, w/ the prize money of the U.S. Open (for next yr); the guys up north are antsy to get a piece of the U.S. Open action, too..:) ;)..We need to upgrade the U.S. Open to a Grand Prix event!..:cool:
    ..uhm, is there a "Guess who the sponsors are" quiz??..:) :p
    Btw, the sponsor (or one of the sponsors) is not BC, is it??..:confused: ;)
    :p..hmm, only if we add another zero (0), or two zeros (00), at the end of the prize money, $200,000 or $2,000,000..:) ;)

    Don't worry folks. The sponsors are no secret. As a matter of fact, we will be finalizing everything on our website very soon. I will also post here on BC some of the players that have confirmed in coming. We are trying to make contact with some international players but due to Beijing this year, it may be difficult to get some. We'll see. We will certainly try our best. I will keep all you BCers posted. Stay tuned.
