    No one has posted anything about the Jiangsu Team's Vancouver visit. There will be a demonstration match between the Jiangsu Team and the best (hmmm, more like turkey shoot for the visiting team) that the Province of British Columbia has to offer. The event will be in the first week of January, 2007. Head coach, Sun Jun, will come along for the fun (ehhh, more like vacation for the entire team).

    BC Badminton Federation raised the airfare for the Jiangsu Team I think. VRC had a tournament on Saturday to raise funds for the living expense of the visiting team in Vancouver.

    It was a very fun tourney. Coach Ming booked the courts for the participants. So nice of him :D.

    Will this include the National Players that are affiliated to Jiangsu Province (eg. Chen Jin). Or just the Province team players?

    Good luck to the BC Team!!:)

    I believe Xia's wife - Jin Beilei is from Jiangsu. Wonder if the couple will make the trip as well? :rolleyes:

    Btw, anyone knows about the visiting roster (or the proposed ones)?

    Unfortunately, this event will be postponed to February (around the 4th or 5th... for about 9 days).

    There were problems in getting VISAs... so no exhibition in January.

    Well people, here's some news. CBC TV was at RichmondPro to do some taping of the match. They will air some highlights and a 5 minute feature on either Weds 14 or 21 Feb at approx 6:45 pm. It's part of the sports portion of CBC News. So keep your eyes peeled!:)

    More pics later this evening
