    Argh, missed it. Any chance he's coming to Vancouver?
    Does he still have that same hair style?

    his hair is still kinda long..but shorter like cooler mentioned.. (long as in compared to mine )...

    but anyways, he was crazy...he won singles (pretty much a no doubter) beating kyle foley...for a 34 year old, he's still awesome at the game and it seemed like he didnt' try TOO hard. ..obviously he's more a singles player than doubles...and lost in the finals.

    there are still 4 more yonex alberta series to be held in 2003...and ardy will most likely play in at least another of the 4. If you want, i can find the dates and tell you

    Too bad I missed it. I haven't checked BF in a few weeks. Anyways, keep us posted, since I'm back in Edmonton now. Yonexfanatic, check your PM.

    well, i think ardy can beat any canadian player in MS at less than 100% effort. As for MD, he usually pair up with a fren or one of his student as compare to most MD pairs which would have practiced and played together for some time. I didnt watch that tournament so it's really my view.

    yeah..cooler, your point of view was pretty accurate. From my knowledge and observing his games at the tourny, I too also believe that he can defeat any canadian player at less than 100% effort. He was partnered with kyle foley except i'm not sure which club he trains at..but since you mentioned ardy usually partners with his students, i'm guessing kyle is part of the glencoe?

    yeah, i believe K. foley is a glencoe member. He is not in the national team. I saw him pair up with ardy once before. I think foley is a A- player. That was a year ago.

    Default Ardy Wiranata

    Watching him in action was quite exhilirating. Despite missing the singles on friday, I manage to come in for the mens doubles the next day... just to find out what I had missed. I couldn't close my mouth after watch his crosscourt drops skimmed the net a few times. Just wish that more quality professionals would pass through Edmonton for plays.

    Actually, we seldom played together... it's quite a privilege for me when I get to play with a player of your calibre, it's not often that I play with trained players in local badminton clubs.

    As for clubs I frequent, I play mostly at the U of A Club and Chinese Badminton Club. I have also joined the St. Albert club for the summer (they play at Concordia on sundays), but in the fall, I might consider joining IBC if timing is good.

    I have to admit that I was shocked when someone mentioned that you beat another good player I knew in the tournament.

    Hint: we first met in GMCC downtown gym on an EDBA night.

    Later, buddy!

    Heh! Well, aren't you a popular guy!!! I am not uncomfortable revealing my name on this forum. Heck, who knows... I might even get my very own bonne-fide stalker if I am lucky Anyway, I just hope that I didn't offend you for "outing" you on this forum

    Forthright to a fault,

    Ming
