    for hougang, cheaper alternatives are punggol cc, hougang cc, sengkang cc . i believe they charge around $5 per hour during peak periods. if not left with hougang sports hall at $7.5 per hour right. the other one is at hougang imh at buangkok. think they charge to same as sports hall , cant rem but one thing for sure i know, that is if u know any staff there, u can book it at $2 per hour and block book it also. thats about all the info i can give at the moment. so we really need to delegate jobs around . like who to book, who to buy shuttlecocks, who to collect money and so on . . any takers? n have to see if weeknights or weekends is good for most of us.

    my previous group use to buy shuttles from malaysia. think is sealion brand or something. cheaper n its suprising good. can take this as i reference 2. feel free to suggest also. protech now seems not too good now as i played them only on tuesday. breaks easily.

    :) .. Merry xmas !

    correct me if im wrong, i rmb one has to book sports hall courts online every tue morning. if thats e case then i cant book sports halls cos i dont have access to a com at that time. about imh.. haha need to find out where it is first. i live in the east, so not sure about places in e north eastern part of singapore

    dont mind buying shuttles but can only buy in singapore cos i dont go malaysia. like e rsl tourney #1. feel it has one of the best performance-price ratio.

    Wed 03/01/07, Aljunied Town Council, 8pm-10pm
    1)Calvin
    2)Ben
    3)Thambert?
    4)Adrain?
    5)Terror?
    6)
    7)

    Tentatively, the game is on but think will only know if the court is available on the day itself for next week. So those who are going, kindly leave me a pm with your contact number. I will bring the shuttles for the first game and then decide the rest of the details should we decide to make it a regular affair. Thanks!
