    Anyone interested in getting a court for tomorrow evening (say 7pm to 10pm)? I have a friend in town and he would like to play some baddy.

    I'm thinking maybe around 6 to 8 folks which will bring the cost for each to $7.50 (for 6) or $5.60 (for 8).

    Let me know and I will try to book a court for tomorrow.

    The friend is a high-intermediate/advanced player.

    Well, I can see what time you guys finished :eek:

    Would loved to stay that late but unfortunately have to work. :) plus I was getting tired. Jeez, just been off a few weeks sure take a lot out of ya.

    It was fun and thanks to the folks who signed as in. No intention of nailing my bro but rushed that shot a little bit as I was anticipated that cross-court drop from Cappy :D

    Yeah, Tai is pretty good. Good defense and he's pretty laid back but if he gets going with being aggresive, watch out :D

    It was great seeing you guys again as well as playing. Thanks to Speed78 for being the hostess again :D

    So his name is Tai? Man you guys didn't even introduce me to him! :( Seemed like a really nice guy. Wish I had more games with him, I'd like to see his aggressive side as you say. Hopefully you guys can stay longer/later next time as well. Didn't even get a chance to socialize, and that's half the fun.

    Sorry, but definitely can't make it out tonight.

    BUT Richmond Badminton Club starts its new season this Sunday (6:30 pm to 10pm) and I will be there. You guys are welcome to drop in ($7.00 includes feather birdies). Please not everyone come by at the same time otherwise there won't be room to play :D Check out http://www.richmondbadminton.com for location info.

    Well, I'm organizing the Sunday session and I don't know if I can regularly make either Tues/Thurs but yeah, I'm strictly Sundays for now.

    BTW, it seems like I left my water bottle and my ankle brace (black) at VRC. Is there a lost and found (not so much for the water bottle but rather the ankle brace)? :mad:

    Hmm... I was wondering about the black ankle brace lying on the bench. Last I saw, it's still on the bench... didn't know it was yours:(. Perhaps it's still there, cuz I know guys sometime leaves their baddy shoes on the benches overnight and still manage to get them back.

    Hi XYQH-watson,

    For competitive play, you can check out Deer Lake. It's semi-private, plastic shuttles unfortunately, but good calibre. You can show up, but the guy in charge is quite strict. A couple guys I know got chased away, so be prepared.

    Well, I drove out there last night (around 9:30pm) and no luck, either someone took it or look at it and chuck it away in the trash.

    I've left a note for the VRC office and janitor to see if anyone turned it in. :crying:

    Thank you so much,wood-22_chuck!
    Why the guy in charge is so strict?A competitive team is good,but a friendly team is more important to me.So,let it be!
    By the way,will you go to Collingwood this Sunday?I will be there .
