    Is anyone going? All the seats are sold out :(... and since Markham is half an hour drive, my mom isn't planning to go and buy the tickets until tomorrow... ughh I hope there's still tickets available by then! :eek:

    it was a sick game
    Cao Chen and Raymond Wong

    it was projected that they would only have 5 games
    but they had 7 games plus a junior team (intermission) match

    Raymond was hilarious with his non stop smashing....too bad Cao Chen tired him out....or else that would've been alot better to watch

    Yeah, the pictures are a bit blurry but that's okay. You were too focused on the games to take good pictures. :p

    Blehh, I wish I could have gone.

    i was actually quite surprised that there wasn't a lot of people there. i mean, sure, the gym is like half full, but there couldn't have been more than 500 people ( which was fine, because i can actually see from where i'm standing and the line up for the autographs weren't too long :) )

    Really? That's sort of disappointing but I guess it just reflects how badminton just isn't as popular here unfortunately. :(

    Well, on the bright side being able to see and get autographs is an advantage of that. If I hadn't had prior commitments, I would have gone too.

    It is because of the fire regulations in Canada. You can't fit more than an set amount of people without meeting those requirements.

    I heard that all of the tickets were sold prior the exhibition game.

    yeah... But for singles, she was playing against two players that are probably U12.
