    hey Clinton! We are planning on coming, but the more important question for us is... what are the plans for the dinner and the party??? Is it going to be just dinner at a restaurant like last year, or will there be an actual party at someone's house??

    15-love : is hubby playing? and if so, are you playing mixed together? If not, a cloverdale member is looking for mixed ladies partner. He's quite strong, and plays mixed quite well.

    thanks badrad. hubby's injury is kinda chronic, he can actually play but it hurts after. He has not decided yet if he is playing... do I know the Cloverdale guy? Has he played tourneys in Van before?

    do you know Ricky? Ricky's played in a few tournaments, but mainly outside of the lower mainland. he's pretty fast and smart player, his wife is playing mixed with another cloverdale fellow (rob, i think).

    Hi 15Love, it's going to be in a restaurant just like last year, since we're expecting
    over 100 people attending the dinner/party.

    The 2004 WA Open will be May 21-23 at the Pro Club (same place as previous year).
    I'll post the detail when the entry is out.

    Also, BMS was saying that quite a few of the Vancouver BFers will be heading down to the tournament, either as spectators or as players. So who'd be going?

    I might be interested in going. But a little early for me to commit right now. ^_^

    Daffodil tournament will be April 17-18 at Tacoma (50 minutes south of Seattle).
    Last year, the first place in open gets $100 and $50 for runner up if I remeber
    correctly. I'll post the detail when the entry is out (late March).

    Yes, the Cloverdale gang and a bunch from Collingwood went down to the WA Open last year.

    In fact, during my Xmas Baddy session, we discovered that Mr. & Mrs. 15Love was also in the same Hotel having the continental breakfast at the next table! :) (it's a small baddy world!)

    I made the group Hotel booking for the Collingwood bunch plus a few more and we were able to save a few dollars more than expected.

    So after the Collingwood Open House on April 4th, I will be looking for players who want to car-pool down to WA, plus do a group Hotel booking again. As the numbers get larger we could get a better rate.

    This could also be the opportunity for someone needing to find a partner to play in the tourny!

    Cheers!
