    Might as well put this up here too... :rolleyes:

    Here is the flyer (.pdf file) from the Badminton Canada website:
    http://www.badminton.ca/file_download.aspx?id=10529

    From my knowledge, there should be 5 matches: 2 XD, 1 WS, 1 WD, 1 MD; and (I think) most of the Korean players are from Ra Kyung Min's company team (Enopi), and a couple from Kim Dong Moon's University Team/National Team. They are pretty much all doubles/mixed players too. And, no, there won't be any of the top players because they are duking it out at Swiss Open Super Series anyway :p

    thanks for the notice towbsss. Isn't sad to have a vancouverian to come here to tell us about an Alberta badminton event, and no notices from calgary winter club or the Badminton Alberta. Even i know about the vancouver's racket rally before this KOR/CAN exhibition. I found out about kor/can exhibition from a badminton associate who i bumped into at the elevator of a building which we work in, on friday afternoon, ie, a day before.

    kind a ripoff IMO. $35 to see some golden oldies and associates of the oldies that were exhibited here before already. It was only $15 back then. No lin dan killers PSH and LHI, no melon crushers LYD and LHJ, no JJS or madbad's heart throb HYH.

    for 33$, one can get to see at racket rally of vancouver of current greats, live.

    I thought Fairchild is also hosting a All-Star event in Richmond BC as well and Peter Gade will be there.
