    Hi, I will be visiting the Richmond/Vancouver area on the night of 10/26 Thursday, can people give me suggesstion on which club I will able to play on and get some good games? Singles or doubles doesn't matter.

    Or if there are some good coaches there, I may take a lesson too.

    Thank you very much.

    Finally, you can make it to Vancouver after 2 trips from me to SF :D. Will you stay till at least Sunday? You can get good games from provincial-class players at ClearTwo. Ronnie is a good coach but English is limited and the waiting list is long. www.clearonebadminton.com

    You can drop in at VRC on Saturday night.

    Unfortunately I am there only on Thursday night, have meetings on Friday and flying back on Friday night.

    So where will be the best place to play on Thursday night and what is the cost?

    Richmond is the best place. So try ClearTwo first. Since you know Darryl, you might consider writing him an e-mail first.

    I'm sure that I don't know Darryl.

    But anyway, where is a good place to play? I try to find information on ClearTwo but the website is down.

    You can drop by Richmond Pro, www.richmondprobadminton.com Ask madmad, maybe he can find Eric Y. to entertain you ;). Or you can drop by VRC for a 9:30 PM to 2 AM non-stop session :D.

    For some reason, the drop-in hours are all in the afternoon or late at night.

    I don't know if I can play so late at VRC because I have meeting in the next morning.
