    I'm tied up Saturday morning and afternoon, but you remember the way to the VRC. Usually with the junior and senior equal priority with only 3 free courts, the waits can be quite long, but give ample time to chat.

    If you want more play time after the Saturday night (if Kwun and Janet don't have as much energy as us oldies) we could get some more playing Sunday with our annual group Viver and WWC maybe. I'm available Sunday morning and afternoon if WWC and Viver want to set up something at Clearone. Maybe some of the other BF'ers who can't make it Saturday would like to try that arrangement as well.

    Since you are leaving Monday evening, I could also arrange my meetings on Monday to the afternoon and we could go to the VRC on Monday morning. There's a small group there that are good players and can give a tough game.

    Cheez... this makes me sound like I play badminton every day...

    What, badrad? You don't?!

    A practical question for me is how the non-VRC members would be able to get in. As in physically getting into VRC. Somehow I have this impression that VRC's doors are locked, and you either need a key to get in, or you need to press a buzzer to get someone from the office to let you in.

    The entrance to VRC is always locked and requires a member's key to get in. In the evening after everyone in the office and proshop leaves it can be quite difficult getting in by using the buzzer. The buzzer doesn't ring everywhere in the club, only in the office, proshop, and within earshot of the entrance. So guests showing up late will have to rely on luck of someone walking through the front foyer. I suggest the guests setup a meeting time with a member. If guests show up at all different times it will be difficult for both guests and members.

    Gee, skipping Seattle while you're here, even though Vancouver has better badminton (especially facility wise, I almost kissed the floor the first time I was
    at VRC) and food. We do have a place to play on Saturday from 2 pm to 5+pm
    (close to Seatac airport) and it's generally not crowded. You're welcome to stop by,
    play badminton at Seattle from 2 to 5, and drive to Vancouver (border crossing
    line will definitely be shorter at this time) for dinner and play the rest of the
    night/morning at VRC.

    Hey Clinton! It really sounds like you need to catch and carpool with Kwun up to Vancouver and get in on the fun as well! The more the merrier!

    Yeah, that's a great idea. Catch a ride and book a room in the same hotel & get a ride back too on Monday

    Unfortunately I don't think the family is going to be happy with me if I spend Saturday evening and Sunday morning/afternoon playing baddy after spending most of the week away from home
