    Default @ Vancouver Sept 13-15....

    so one evening a couple of weeks ago, there was this conversation at j&k's :

    k : "work is too hectic, let's go for a vacation.."
    j : "yes!"
    k : "where would be fun? let's go LA, USOpen is there. there will be good badminton too"
    j : "let's go Mexico. food is cheap."
    k : "but there is hurricane..."
    k : "let's go vancouver, never been there, there is good food i heard. can play badminton too."
    j : "yeah... food in Vancouver is very good..."

    after some discussion and debate, based the follow criteria:

    LA : good badminton, food ok, friends there, been there.
    Mexico : no badminton, hurricane, kinda far, food cheap, know nobody.
    Vancouver : good badminton, food excellent, never been, friends there.

    the decision was made (by janet based mainly on the good food) : Janet & Kwun will be heading up to Vancouver for a weekend! specificly, we will be flying up on saturday morning, and then leaving on monday evening. i hope too meet some of you BF'er there and play some badminton too!!

    Sounds like a good time for yet another BF Western Canada Fun Night... We could either meet up at the Vancouver Racquets Club, or book a few courts for several hours at Clearone. Let's get a show of hands who will show, and preferred location...

    Welcome Kwun. You should enjoy your visit to Vancouver.

    Badrad, not sure how many interested to join and if everybody can drop in at VRC. If not probably renting/drop in ClearOne would be preferable. Just my thought.

    Will Vancouver BC folks consider going to the airport and open up a big big banner "Welcome Janet & Kwun"?

    See you soon, Kwun.

    We can do both! Clearone one night, VRC the other. Pick which works best for most of us.

    pros and cons... VRC may be busy at some times, and some BF'ers may have worn out their guest priviledges, but you can play all day and night until your legs and lungs fall out.

    Clearone - booking or drop-ins are limited, but is open to all players on first come first serve basis.

    I would say Clearone due to the fact that we probably will have quite a few BF'ers and not sure if we will have enough members to sign all the guests in (plus probably will piss off the other regular members if 10 guests showed up all at one time).

    Badrad, wanna check with Daryl regarding either Sat PM/evening or Sun AM? I got stuff on Sun PM. I am not sure if Kwun/Janet would want to play Sat PM (since they will be driving up from Seattle). All in all, I can only spare a couple of hours (family wants my time too since I have been working in Victoria and only see them on weekends) and Clearone is probably better for me

    Gotta keep in mind that we need to ensure that Kwun/Janet gets good food too.

    you guys are so spoiled to have choice of places to play on every hour of the day! i wasn't aware that playing in the morning is an option...

    janet and i are flexible. either or both days. AM or PM is good for us. VRC or ClearOne. as long as there is badminton!

    we will be driving up from Seattle, traffic allowing, we should be in Vancouver around 2pm or so.

    Yeah, you start at 8 or 9 am and play until 12:30 or 1pm then go for dim sum!

    How about this schedule?

    Saturday evening - 8-11(?) Clearone - Book 2 courts for 3 hours?

    Sunday morning, afternoon, evening - VRC. Paying the drop-in fee for VRC does allow one to play for the entire day. Take breaks for dim-sum, and dinner and late snack. We could arrange with different groups for various times to keep Kwun well accompanied.

    How about Monday morning?

    Local BF'er roll call:

    Timeless and mrs.
    Marky
    TTT
    Smashingbird
    GRYP
    Traum
    15Love
    Lovejoy
    Viver
    WWC
    PeteLSD
    Badrad/Mrs and Little
    Wood22chuck

    Apologies if I missed anyone..

    Let me know which works best for each, we'll try to sort out the arrangements.

    I think Janet might want to do some shopping and/or sightseeing

    So Kwun will be spending his time in the badminton court from Saturday to Monday (non-stop for badminton) except taking some breaks for dim sum and snack.

    I will be available for Sat. night and Mon. morning. I am not sure for Sunday, for the time being.

    In the evening, ClearOne's regular schedule is for drop-ins instead of court rental though. We'll need to talk to Darryl to make some kind of arrangement if we want to do this.

    I injured my shoulder last week, and I don't know if I could recover in time to join in on the badminton. Nevertheless, I'll at least stop by to meet Kwun.
