    As the title suggested, my 3rd trip to vancouver is in planning. The possible date is so far set to be 5/4-5/10. Many details were in discussion with Cappy75 and Pete LSD. So, minor schedule change is possible.

    As always, I will pack some action mainly during weekend and night times. Ok, our van gangs, as well as VRC / C1 / C2 / Collingwood and whatever gym, I am back! :D

    Yeah. I am indeed a crazy one. :D

    Actually, there's a good chance another BFer will share the load with me this time. Let's wait and see. ;)

    No way I can drive there for 3000 miles. :eek: Plan to take a direct flight, if possible.

    LB,
    The Van BF'ers will be waiting and scheming/planning to entertain you and guest :D

    Hopefully I will be able to make it out this time around.

    As part of our planning, I need a favor from our local buddies. Please check to make sure the gyms (in particular VRC, C1/C2 and Collingwood) are NOT reserved for any major events during 5/4-5/10. Reason? Of course, WE want to play... :D

    I think you may have underestimated LB. From the reports I read here, LB has graduated, no less from the vital lessons learnt from his buddy Cappy75, and may now be on the opposite end of the stick. LB may be able to mete out the punishment instead, at least for a change! :D

    Enjoy the punishment in reverse, LB! Maybe you should take on more difficult players in your birthplace, China, the next time around. Yannie, Magical Phoenix, Kemana and many others will be waiting. :)

    I am sure Badrad will have the honour of giving out the tortures :D.

    Of course not! That's why LB had been tutored well and should now be able to 'tutor' others. ;)

    Lol... No chance for me to charge back, as I don't think I can win with a ratio of 1 (or 2) vs. 20. :p Talking about trip in CHN, I do have a plan for later this year. However, with my tight schedule, I don't think badminton will be part of it, unless I want my family/friends to kill me. :cool: :D

    4/21 - 4/26

    The bad news is, we had to change our schedule at the last minute. The good part is, it's actually getting earlier by 2 weeks, and I've already booked my ticket (Frendis is doing hers at the moment as well, I suppose :p ). Here's our estimated schedule:

    Arrive: Friday 4/21 early AM, poor Cappy75 has to stay up late (or early), and pick us up from YVR. Thank you so much, man...

    Leave: Wed 4/26 day time.

    Therefore, I assume most of the action will be packed from Fri late time (around dinner?), Sat/sunday (main torture sessions as my experience :D ) and maybe 1 or 2 relaxed session on mon/tues. Hope my old body can handle all of these for the 3rd time. I am sure Frendis can help me take quite a bit shares, as she's a wonderful player herself. :rolleyes:

    Let the fun begin... ;)

    unfortunately badrad has to do it with only one good leg... tore my hamstring last weekend. mrs. badrad is just a bit unamused...
    we are on the island the week of LB's arrival for the CDN Masters, but we should be back to greet LB on the Monday/Tuesday. Look forward to playing some MX with you and Frendis.

    Speedy recovery and best of luck for your matches, master badrad! :p

    I am sure you can just toy us around, even with just 1 leg. I still rememeber how much me and Dave had to run, when we faced you and EJ last year. :cool:
