    All news are good news to promote baddy in Canada...how else can an obscure baddy event in Canada with pocket money as prize could make it heard world wide:p
    The 2013CO winners could hardly pay for the high cost in Vancouver for flight, food and room, and maybe a few loonies left to pay for McDonald here. The early round casualties prolly got stuck in Vancouver, cannot go home:D.
    As for the Thai MD fight, it makes the previous LD javalin throwing event a tiny blip in baddy. Now, only if the good looking women follow up with this act, that would top it all:D

    Haha, thanks for the offer! I hope there's a next time! I heard that the Canada Open will be held in a different city next year!

    I think they mention Toronto, though I'm not sure.

    Are you sure you're "tougher" than the one pictured?

    I don't think he survived very long.

    Kudos to him for all his patience, diligence and hard work. :):):)

    Vancouver BCers should be proud and lucky to have such an ardent badminton fan!

    Finals! 8 unconventional trophies to be awarded today: Inukshuk glass sculptures for the runner-ups, and wooden native totem carvings for the champions.

    coming to a court near you...
    It's not really meant to be a badminton stadium. The part they used for badminton is just one end of the building, which is cavernous. The original use was a speed skating oval where lighting did not affect the event. It's now a multi-sport community centre.
