    Hurricane Katrina donation

    In an effort to help those affected by the recent Hurricane Katrina disaster, UCLA Badminton will donate at least 10% of all profits made at this year's Bruin Open to the American Red Cross.

    That's a very nice gesture from an excellent school (even though I went to SC :D ).

    I'll be at the Tourney, probably just to watch, or may enter in the Funky Doubles and be the weakest link. :p :D

    Thanks

    To the above three responses,

    Thanks for your kind words and enthusiasm. It's good to hear from everyone! I do hope you can join us and play at the event, S4MADMAN. Having Funky players will definitely bring out some good games at BO. Thanks LAZYBUDDY, we hope our event is successful too. SILENTHEART, two words: "BRUINS FOREVER!".

    I hope you can help us spread the word if you get the chance.

    I have a friend currently attending UCLA for PHD right now. He told me that he always saw a few ppl walking around campus with badminton bags. Maybe that's ur guys.

    Hmmm... Maybe I should make a trip to LA next Sept/Oct? :rolleyes:

    Have to check out the schedule, if not too busy around that time I can play in your tournament and perhaps I can get a few friends to join as well. Good luck.

    Virocon: regarding Funky Doubles, if a person is matched-up with a "Super A" is matched up with a "C" or "D" player, does the Super A have to give any points to the opponents that are non-Super A?

    Thanks. :)

    S4MadMan, if you send an e-mail to uclabad@ucla.edu you'll get a more precise answer from the tournament director. He'll answer within the first 24-36 hours if not sooner.

    Thanks again for your interest!

    Please register under the Windows operating system if at all possible!

    It seems the on-line registration submission DOES NOT work with the Apple/Macintosh operating systems.

    Please try to register under the Windows operating system if at all possible!

    Sorry for the inconvenience! Hope this hasn't deterred any Mac users...we appreciate your participation equally! =)

    If you're doing this under Windows, try Internet Explorer. If you continue to have the problem, register by sending an e-mail to UCLABAD@UCLA.EDU with the same info as on the registration page. Put "BRUIN OPEN REGISTRATION" in the Subject heading.

    Sorry for the inconvenience (we'll fix this issue for next year's BO) and thanks for participating!
