Yonex Canadian International Challenge - Moncton, Canada Dec 12-17 Moncton is a very small Canadian city -- far from the big hubs of Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. But it will soon be hosting a pretty fair tournament. Entrants representing at least 16 countries have signed up. (No Chinese, Japanese, Indonesians or Malaysians though.) Notables include Kestutis Navickas (Lithuania) and Carl Baxter (England). And of course, Badminton Central's own Nicholas Bankowsky (Trinidad/Tobago). For aramistuscany and fellow admirers, the Mexican WD pair of Cynthia Gonzalez and Victoria Montero will be there too. So if you've ever wanted to see impoverished Eastern Canada in bleak winter, now's your chance!
