    Boy, you guys are bargaining Kwun lower and lower. At this rate we'll be able to get him for a song and dance. Guess we'll be seeing Kwun in Richmond in a couple of weeks on his own coin. :D:D:D

    Had a chance to drop by the tournament this weekend and watched the whole day yesterday.

    Mens Singles Semi Kiran K vs Richard Liang- Boy, Kiran played well, seems like he's in pretty good shape. Didn't seem like he made any unforced errors and :D at the 5 shouts at the end!

    Mens Singles Semi Kyle Folye vs Chris Lee- It's a shame that there were some calls that were disadvantageous for Chris.. ie the bird brushing the hair and net kill that was not a fault but was faulted because Kyle queried. It could've went to 3 imo and went either way.
    Did anyone record/see the game? I wanted to see the net kill by Chris that smashed right at Kyle!!! It was VERY loud but i was watching the other end!!! =(

    I had to leave mid-way after the doubles started... Would love to have a chance to watch the finals...

    Pretty organized tournament imo but seating was pretty limited.

    Why does it say "Written by kwun"? Was kwun there? I thought YOU were writing the reports for the finals.

    I posted videos of the matches I recorded in the Badminton Tournament Video Sharing section. The semifinal matches were all played simultaneously, so I couldn't record them all. Sorry!

    As for the doubles matches, I couldn't get out on Saturday morning to watch/record the matches. I also had to leave early on Sunday, so I wasn't around to record the men's doubles finals match. Sorry again!
