    It's where he jumps off the ground, reach up and stretch REALLY high, with chest and torso thrust forward (wind-up) ... then EXPLODES with the racket and feet thrusted forward. If you "twang" a rubber band stretch between your index finger and thumb, that's what it sorta looks like ... only backwards.

    Okay, if this is really confusing, I'll defer to timeless to explain it.

    Hrmmm... I was actually referring to Chi-Ho's uncanny agility. His ability to totally contort his body to take tape-height flat drives going down his backhand alley with his forehand. What makes him look like a rubber band is that he can hit a drive down his forehand alley and then rubber banding his body to his backhand alley to hit another drive. Both with his forehand... it's really quite a sight . His body goes totally horizontal to one side and then to the other in a flash. Wish I was that nimble!

    His smashes in general do have rubber band like attributes though. To me his arm resembles someone holding one end of a rubber band while pulling the other back and then letting it snap forward. Resulting in a nice welt for anyone who doesn't have their guard up .

    With this description I will surely know who Kwun is Actually an even shorter way to remind me is the "backhand-smashy Kwun". I have a memory that your backhand smash was stronger than your forehand ones. is that true? ( )

    Guys, in case you think his forehand smash is weak.. I actually meant his backhand smash is very strong..

    Hi VCRer's, I will be playing this on Saturday at VRC as well. Can I join your group? I can help bring in one more non-member if another non-member wants to join.

    Cheers

    that's just scary...kwun. Seeing how strong your backhand smash is right now, I'm kinda glad I didn't know you before.

    Too bad can't play this Saturday. Hope to be able to make it next time.
    Hi viver, yes, i'm still at it but only once a week in the summer. So, you are playing more often than me. There're just not as many club here as in vancouver and toronto. It is puzzling how vancouver having higher land prices have more badminton facilities than Calgary.

    Hey Cooler,
    Time to get your buddies together and set up a facility I thought that Kelvin was in the process of securing some warehouse space.

    Smile place to play on the 25th or 27th

    Sorry this is out of the topic but was wondering if there are any open gyms that I can drop in to play a little pick up game during the 25th, 26th or 27th of July. Thanks for any info you can give.

    I would say that you can try either Clearone or the VRC. I will be out of town during that period but BF regulars like Timeless, Pete LSD, etc. all play at the VRC. Put up a new thread for the period that you are interested in and see which folks are in town.

    For Clearone, they have drop-in sessions every day except Wed. The cost is $6.00/session and try to wrangle games from the other drop-ins.
