    I was just looking at forms for this event. What does A B C D mean in the U.S.? I looked at the overall rating information through search but hoping someone has some insight for this. Thanks!

    We are coming in a group of 12 people or so. I wonder how we will be able to find in THAT BIG crowd.

    I normally drive seperate from the group since I take my family with me and stay at my cousins place.

    But you definitely can meet up with us and go out for dinner with our group. But the thing is, how will be meeting. Hey I have an idea, I guess we will be wearing Twincities badminton club shirts, white ones.

    hehe, I don't think I am at a level to give tips. I am normal player just like you. Are you playing in a club or school or uni there? You will be coming alone or a group?
