    Does anyone know the status of the new club that is supposed to open in Arcadia? Last I heard, it was scheduled to open in June 2007.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Tippi and Lee, the elderly couple who've been playing and managing the badminton play at McCambridge Park in Burbank for 50 years (he's 95 and still plays occasionally), mentioned this last Wednesday.

    They said the guy behind it is the guy who owns the Hi-Qua company.

    They thought it was scheduled to open in July and that there would be 14-16 courts.

    Hey Dan, haven't seen you around the club in awhile.

    I was there last night and some guys were talking about it. Now I hear it's supposed to be in Irwindale. Haven't checked the map, but I believe that's farther east than Arcadia.

    Hmmm...

    ...hmm, owner or the main distributor in California, if not the whole U.S.??:confused: If he's the distributor then he's a well known gentleman in the Southern California badminton community.;):cool:
    Maybe this is the club which Master NGP mentioned a while ago, being close to the 605 & 10 fwy?!?!:confused:

    Hello Sir, who's this? I haven't been at SGVBC because I hurt my back and have been busy with work as well.

    My friend met with the owner of the new club and it will be in Arcadia. The planned opening date is late July. The owner is keeping a low profile, he doesn't want to say anything until everything is done so stay tuned.

    Nope, that's another club but it seems that's just a rumor because I have not heard anything since.

    Who am I? The tall thin guy with blond hair and blue eyes.

    That ought to narrow it down.

    Glad to hear the comfirmation

    I'm very pleased to hear a confirmation on the new club. Living here in Orlando has been such a drag....we just got a notice that as of July 31st we will be kicked out of the facility we are currently using. Thank goodness, that I'm in the process of moving back to the L.A. area....can't wait...the food, the weather, the badminton, poker....what more can a guy ask for?.......and on top of that I'll be making a lot more money.....can't wait. Advice to anyone living in L.A. is to never leave.....the rest of the country will bore you to death....even N.Y.C. Hopefully William, the owner of Hi Qua, will come through and open a world class facility.

    Tom
