    Hi friends,

    it has been a while, in fact, 7 years since i last visited Vancouver:

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?11491-Vancouver-Sept-13-15....

    time really flies! :eek:

    we are currently planning another trip there for the July 4th weekend.

    if it works out, i hope to meet up with some of you and play some badminton!

    details are still being worked on at the moment. i will let you guys know when the schedule is finalized.

    Kwun, good to know. Originally I was supposed to be heading down south for the weekend but unfortunately (luckily) we had concert tickets for July 3th (Sat), so will be looking forward to meeting up while you are up here.

    :p..i was giggling reading the conversation between you & J...no wonder you wanted to go to Mexico this past April..;)

    Time sure flies..this time though bringing B & J along too..

    Will there be a mini-stringfest ala Vancouver style, maybe in master Pete's headquarter?
    Have a fun trip and hopefully master Pete and the gang can accommodate another infamous Saturday Morning Torture session..:cool:

    Hi Vining!

    unfortunately i think i will miss you again this time. I will only be there for the weekend, leaving on the 5th.

    mini-stringfest sounds like a cool idea. will have to figure out the schedule first. with two boys this time, i don't have as much flexibility as last time.

    Guys and gals

    Seems awfully quiet here despite the massive news of the boss' imminent visit.

    I will organizing something if I can get some feedback on who might be interested in playing. Kwun will be here from (Fri-Mon 2nd-5th July) and I am waiting to hear back from him on his preferred playing schedule.

    I hope we can show him some of our great Vancouver hospitality in appreciation of what he has done for us

    I assume all the talking is going on by email? where is all the chat & banter?

    3 weeks and just 9 replies? or are you planning surprise big party for Kwun when he thinks you have been ignoring the thread?!!

    I was hoping that people would respond on this thread. It would be easier to know who is available so that we can plan something

    I am sure folks like Cappy and Pete LSD, Growler (still in town?) and BMS are all in. We should try and get Viver and the Badrad clan into the action :0

    Hi all, it will be great to see the old timer again! i don't think they are active in BC anymore but do you know where they play?

    tentatively, let's schedule this for Sat night. i am still trying to figure out my schedule.

    anyone seen ChiHo lately?

    Those guys should be still in town, I saw them like 2 weeks ago (except BMS). Not sure about Chi Ho.

    I'll let them know about this thread.

    Hi folks, sorry about the belated reply. I haven't been active on the forum for almost two years now. Still playing baddy though. Thanks to TTT for bring my attention to this thread. Please join us at VRC when you're able, Kwun. I am really keen to meet you for the first time.

    Saw BMS at Hollyburn two weeks ago at the BC Closed. I think he still keeps an eye on BC.but you can PM him if you are concerned because he said he checks that! Can try to make it out if you play at VRC and we are given enough time to find babysitting!

    I'm in, too. I'll be around that week. Woodchuck (my brother) isn't in town anymore (that's who madbad was thinking of), unfortunately.
