    Do BF members get a "bye", per chance?

    So cruel, yet so true! :D

    Are the t-shirts for sale for non-participants? You know how out-of-shape I am.

    Yup, we have an XL with your name on it, Dave. But you should be playing anyway so go find yourself a partner.

    In deed!

    The entry form does not mention the type, brand, and the number of shuttles supplied for each match (maybe no limit :) ).

    Am I correct, you get a tourny free T-shirt when you enter two events? :D hmmm

    Cheers!

    Hello B-M-S

    Re. shuttles, we will provide 2 per match until the finals, brand to be confirmed shortly. Re. t-shirt, yes, you get one if you enter 2 events.

    We will be expecting your entry soon, right :D :D

    Thanks

    Great response

    We've had a tremendous response for the tournament. Even to this evening, we've had people belatedly submitting their entry forms. Once we sort things out and conduct the draws, we'll post it on our website.

    Thank you all who have entered the tournament. See you next weekend at PRO. Bring your "A" game!!

    Thanks for putting together such a fabulous event! Me and my partner had fun playing. Thanks to the number of courts available, we didn't have to wait too long in between games. For a hastily put together tourney, it was very well run. Thumbs up to madbad and company for the job well done:)!

    BTW, you guys might wanna get a real PA system as the reverb from the cordless phone made it almost impossible to discern the announcements. Also you might wanna remind spectators not to use flash during the tourney as it's really distracting for the players. Other than those issues, playing in the tourney is a wonderful experience!

    Congrats on your own good run in the Open MD to reach the semis.

    The PA system... ya, it has to be addressed. But we live and learn. Flash photography... well, you know you have to get used to it when everyone wants to take your pics :D
