    A small addon, VRC and VLTBC requires members to sign you in as guest. Its not a drop in facility.

    Yes, Collingwood Neighbourhood House will be open on the May long weekend for the Sunday high-intermediate / advance session

    time: from 10am to 1pm
    cost: drop-in fee $3.25 paid at the frontdesk and shuttle fee of $3.50 paid in the gym

    The shuttle fee is to cover the cost of supplying feather birds.

    Too bad I won't be there, I'll be in Washington trying to change their badminton tournament name to the "BC WA Open" ROFLMAO :D Someone else will be running it for me.

    There are no Friday sessions at Collingwood, only Wed at 8:45pm and Thur at 7:00pm, they are open to all levels and BYOB.

    Cheers!

    Hi, Nephrus, first thanxs for replying my post, I got the impression that there is no drop in VRC unless you know a member to sign you in. " VRC gang"? can you clarlify on what you mean? does that mean you will sign me and my friends up or you know someone will? I will be happy to play with anyone willing to play too while I'm there. Please give me more detail in how I can reach or make plans if it's not a hassle for you or anyone involved. Peace out.

    by that I meant that there is a group of forum members here that are members of VRC and have a history of having great hospitality to out of country baddy lovers by signing them in to VRC for a night of torture... erm fun I mean. Each member can only sign in one guest though so you are going to have let us know when and how many.
