    This just in, officially from Mr. Andy Gouw of Asby Sports :

    World Champions and globe-trotters Messrs. H. Bach & T. Gunawan will be coming to the Home of the Cougars at Newark Memorial High School on 21 January 06 for exhibition match[es]. Tentatively between 10am and 2pm.

    This is a limited opportunity to see live-action of these champion shuttlers in the Peninsula. The event is free and probably limited to 300 viewers. Come early for a good seat! Pass these words around.

    ISO200, 800 as standby

    Kwun,
    Bright, per the Acty Secy's office. This is a newer gym (2yr).

    Pardon my presumtion, shooting ISO200 slide films with following filters
    80A/B
    85A/B for tungsten (possibly in gym)
    cross, for catching those bling-bling
    FL not necessary as no fluorecent lamps in new gym, but always a good carry. ISO800 as standby.

    And, yes, as a roving fotog with @least a coupla cameras slung o'er shoulder, you will get privileged access shooting to your heart's content. Don't skimp on the lens this time! :rolleyes: We recall your despair from WC05. :D
    PM me if you need any other info, the Acty Secy will leave me actual lighting temperature details later today.
