I heard that LABC is a nice facility (I actually haven't been there myself) and they are trying to bid for the US Open to have it hosted there in the future.

Heck, they will even give a PSS event to the US. For instance, if the US wants to give a $1.5 million prize money. They might consider dropping either the Korea PSS or China PSS...
How many clubs exist in the Southern California area?

- It might all come down to money, if the U.S. wants to host another major tourney or host a major tourney year in, year out. But I guess as long as the popularity remains limited (esp. if the host country doesn't have much if any stars), for the long term, it'll be hard to maintain the interest. The U.S. tried it with the 2005 WC, but i don't know if the USAB has even tried applying again in hosting a major event; maybe they did for the SS or PSS?
- Take out Korea PSS? I thought they're one of the top badminton countries?
- As of now, there are officially 6 full time badminton clubs in Southern California (extending all the way down to the Mexican border). In comparison, NorCal has more than a dozen, i think closer to 3x the number to the ones in SoCal.
- Here are links to LABC, you can check out the pics, infos etc.:
