    Hi everyone. I just moved to Las Vegas from California. Well here is a little about myself. I work on Nellis AFB. I manage the F15's that fly there. This might make some people angry, but I used to make fun of this sport because my bro and sis played, but when I started playing it I actually loved and whenever I had a chance we would play. We would travel for 30 mins just to go play badminton. Well I played occasionally at the Arcadia Badminton Club, practice Sunday mornings at Colton High, and the occassional front yard practice. I am just looking for some fellow players to play with here in Las Vegas. I am a beginner so I would like to hone my skills better. Thanks and I love this sport!!!

    hi Chris(mannyfresssh),
    welcome to BC .......... :)

    F15 :confused:. i thought it already retired? :D
    no doubt that it is the most successful in missions.
    how about F22?

    Welcome

    Manny!

    I met some really nice players in Las Vegas. Hope you find that as well. Cool to hear that you are managing f-15s. I used to "manage" f-18s back in the day.

    Just a bad joke. Nice in looking or nice in personality?

    On the other hand, a warm (I know it is hot there) welcome to Manny.

As for your query of places and people to play with, you can head on over to the Places to Play/Local Events->USA West sub-forum and find the infos there. Or if you'd like, here's a quick info link to the Las Vegas badminton scene:

    ^^As for..^^

    ..those "anyone" in Las Vegas, you may want to contact some of the posters in these threads below. Unfortunately, there aren't many "active" BCers (at least "active" in making posts).
    Warning: not sure if they're still in Las Vegas or not; or if they're still looking for baddy partners or not...go call & wake them up!! Good luck!!..:cool:

    badminton is almost like F15 dog fighting, it's a 3D game and we unleash bombs and missiles at our opponents:p The shuttlecock is not a ball but a projectile:)

    if you guys are pilots, then you probably hear of red flag? if you guys are coming here for that it would be awesome to meetup with some of you and hang out and play a game or two.

    For drifit..

    ..if he wants to fly non-stop, he'll need to hook on 8 fuel tanks to his F18 and fly 8,836 miles (or 14,220 kilometers or 7,678 nautical miles) and fly in supersonic style in 8-10 hours, in order to reach the Oasis in the Desert..:cool:
