    OK BFers. As of Dec 18, here is what I am working on...

    I need BFers to respond asap (reply here or a PM) if they are commited!


    (A) Sat Dec 20

    (TO BE CONFIRMED, waiting for a cancellation)

    Time: 9:30pm - 12midnite
    Location: Collingwood Neighbourhood House
    Cost: $5 includes feather birds
    4 Courts (2 courts for the first 30min)
    RSVP Deadline: asap



    (B) Mon Dec 29

    (TO BE CONFIRMED, based on level of interest from BFers)

    Time: Evening (4hrs)
    Location: tba (vancouver/Burnaby area)
    Cost: $11 includes (possibly tournament grade) feathers
    4 Courts
    RSVP Deadline: Monday Dec 22 - 0800hrs


    I think Dec 29 will be a great opportunity for the Racquet Reps to do their demos,

    plus, if they were to bring a few door prizes each, this will greatly enhance

    everybody's night!


    If any of the above sessions are to go ahead, I will post it here.

    I am able to make the Monday (29th) night and bring some Karakal and Domino racquets for demo, plus some other items.

    Hopefully WWC can come so I can beat someone!!! :D

    I can make it for December 29th. Looking forward to playing with/against new ppl.

    It doesn't seem that many ppl can make the 20th. There is a possibility that i can make it that nite...and that's ONLY if I catch my flight saturday morning from toronto cause i fly standby.

    Cheers
    PM me if you need my bc phone number

    Let's See Some More BFers for Dec 29

    Sorry timeless, DarthHowie, wood_22_chuck & Brother! There's not enough interest for the Dec 20th session to make it cost effective. :( :(

    BUT, let's focus on getting more BFers for the Mon Dec 29th session!

    OK GVRD BFers, here's your chance to bang some birds during Xmas2003!

    Here's the current body count as of Sat Dec 20th at 9:15pm...



    MON DEC 29 SESSION (Body Count=9)

    (TO BE CONFIRMED, I will be booking the courts on Dec 22nd)
