    What's happening to the boys/men@CCC ???

    Greetings,

    We have now closed off the $30 Banquet...... but you are still welcomed to attend, but you will have to order your individual dishes at the restaurant.

    At the moment, there are more females than males coming :confused::confused::confused:

    What's happening to the boys/men@CCC ???

    Some girls might want boys/men for dancing partners, even though, some might be happy to be dancing among themselves.

    Come people now, everybody get together to dine & dance. :cool::cool::cool:

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    CCC gets players from all over the world.

    Hi cooler,

    But you are most welcomed to come over... for our Badminton, Dancing, Dinner, Singing, Supper, Wining, etc...... :):):)

    We have received players from all over the world, eg Cambodia, China, England, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Phillipines, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, (my apologies... if I have missed out any countries which I should have listed).

    In fact, our regular BC member, Cheung from Hong Kong, will be visiting us sometime in the next few months.

    We hope to meet you one day.

    And we can then claim Canada as well. :cool::cool::cool:

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    Instructed the restaurant to bring out the first dish of the Banquet at 8:00pm

    Hi hkhung,

    Tell the girls that Karen-C will be coming along too. :)

    Try to be there by 7:30pm, because I have instructed the restaurant to bring out our first dish of the Banquet at 8:00pm.

    But for people ordering their own dishes there...... come at any time, even after 10:00pm. :cool::cool:
    We are expected to carry on there until midnight.

    And the restaurant said it is ok for our members@CCC to come even without having dinner there, so that they can come later to join in the dance and the karaoke.

    So, here is an opportunity for us to really have A Great Chinese New Year Celebration. :)

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]Others did not reply. I suppose noreply = not coming. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]Players from Badminton clubs were from; [/FONT]
    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]Altona Saturday Social [/FONT]
    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]Box Hill Sunday Social [/FONT]

    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]Wesley Badminton [/FONT]

    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]The banquet table was fantastic.... the Malaysian “Lou Sang Dish“ was delicious and fun, as everyone playfully tossed the dish about with great pleasure and enjoyment. We had good food and had more than what we could eat, so we sent some dishes over to the a la carte table. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]Happy Palace was a good host. Consumed 6 bottles of wine. Dancing was few(too shy), but karaoke was fun(about 36 songs).

    And kong-19, who missed out but thinking of us, rang us from Brisbane. :cool::cool::cool:
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]Finished around midnight. Then continued on to SOFITEL MELBOURNE for coffee. [/FONT]

    hkhung's report on our Chinese New Year 2007 Dinner Dance

    Greetings,

    Some 8 hours later, hkhung was kind enough to make another report, but posted it as Post#213 in our Friday Social thread= http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=512654#post512654

    So...... I thought will cut and paste it here, in this thread;

    BTW, the name of the guy that chris@ccc drove home is Khoa, and he came to our CCC CNY Celebration straight after playing @Altona Saturday Social Badminton. He also plays at Wesley Badminton on Monday night.

    And Phil actually plays @Monash Uni and @Springers with a Cambodian Group of Badminton players.

    hkhung also forgot to mention that, from JT Ultra Badminton, we were pleased to have with us Jacky Chen's wife, Tracy.
    And how could hkhung forget to mention our CCC's Karen-C at his table? :):):)

    At the Banquet Table, hkhung forgot to mention Tony(Josie's husband) and from Wesley Badminton, Thusi, John-W and Anne-W. And, hkhung spelled our CCC player wrong, her name is Vivien.

    She told me...... Vivian is for man, Vivien is for woman. :):):)

    I am hoping that Belinda and Helmut will post the photos that they took.

    Finally, I replied to hkhung that he should post his photos in this thread, not in our Friday Social thread.

    Cheers... chris@ccc
