    BMS,

    I passed on the tourney info. to several badminton players last nite at Mike and Aki wedding reception. I suspect that you will get an overflow of entries this year.
    Tom N (my last years partner) says that he will begin training now, could be an interesting tournament. Jason and Thinh will have to defend their title.
    Cheers!

    Sounds like you're reserving a ferry ticket for the weekend of Nov 21st?

    Note to self, get flat-top hair cut & dye hair ying-yang (or maybe a bulls-eye for opponents to aim for, hee hee)

    Cheers!

    Tom's gonna have to train 24/7 :crying: to get in shape! Especially if the last time he had a racquet in his hand was last year's tourny!

    Cheers!

    Remember this is drop-flight A B C D!

    You can strategically choose your flight and hope to win the division, or you can go all out and be the sacrifical lamb to the wolves...

    ...But remember, sometimes the wool/fleece from the sacrificial lamb get caught in the wolf's teeth & throat and they choke in the finals, thus the lamb is victorious! :D ha ha ha haah

    Bribery will get you no where, my bank account number is 342l5h350r30.

    Cheers!

    604Badder just asked me to partner up with him... so I guess we'll be the sacrificial lambs for the 2004 tourney:D.

    Ahhh crap. I was still contemplating joining, and asking you for a partner cappy75. :)

    I believe if panhandle and XYQH-watson paired up, they would be a formidable team indeed.

    Dude,

    That'll teach ya:p!!! I wanted to partner with you, but you kept giving me mixed signals. And then later, 604Badder asked me and the rest is history.

    Oh and don't give Watson or Panhandle any ideas, we got enough troubles with the potential pairs coming into the tourny:D.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately pending which side you're on) Panhandle is not in town to train with XYQH-Watson. Why don't you team up with XYQH-Watson? Last Sunday at Collingwood, you guys kick my butt when I teamed up with WWCBro! (sorry WWCBro!:crying: )


    That should be no problem! I just need to terminate my graphics designer and scoop out & upload his grey matter for all of us to "visualize his creation".

    Unfortunately, the Ts is still in design mode, but I'm open for suggestions, or if someone has already some designs they would like to offer freely and email me some "ready for press" graphics file (hey Kwun? wink wink nudge nudge) will be much appreciated! :)


    Hmm, I think at that price, I'm paying you guys to play in the tourny! :crying: Sorry SmashingBird, the T-Shirts are optional & an extra $18.

    Just in case anybody else was thinking... Dinner afterwards is also an extra cost! Location to be determined by the Players on the day of the tourny.


    I think Wood_22_Chuck was contemplating how many racquets he will have to sacrifice in order to get to the finals with you! :crying: :crying: :crying:

    Cheers!

    Hmmm okay, I was on the fence about joining. XYQH-Watson, you want to partner together? :D

    No pressure, if you have someone else in mind.
