    Golden Bear XXXVII Tournament

    WARNING: Shameless Plug

    Dear BC-ers:
    I'd like to invite all of you on the behalf of Calbadminton to participate in our 37th (that's right, 37th!) semi-annual Golden Bear Tournament. This tournament is going to take place on the Thanksgiving weekend. So if you're not going to be out of town visiting your friends or relatives, why not take this chance to burn off the calories that we will have had from the hearty, fulfilling, and stomach-busting Thanksgiving Dinner?
    We do give out discounts to groups of 8 or more players. For more information, please kindly refer to the flyer below or visit out website at http://badminton.berkeley.edu for online registration / entry form.

    It'd be very nice to meet those of you who live in the vicinities. Happy Holidays!
