    Hey guys,

    I doubt that I could make any BF gathering, let alone drop-in for games, until at least 2nd week of January. Plan is to leave around Boxing Day so I will miss out on the fun for sure. However, I am really looking forward to matching friendly BF user names with friendlier faces.

    You should! I've always wondered what the SOTX racquets were like. That initial demo you received last year seemed to be good quality. Try to keep the grip sizes smaller than YY G3 (including overgrip) though eh?

    Default In Vancouver for the holidays...

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to know when would be the best time to drop by ClearOne? I would love to play some competitive games. Please let me know if the majority of the people are playing elsewhere besides ClearOne. Thank you!

    Default how about dec 28?

    the holidays usually make a mess of community centers and schools due to closures and such. not sure how the holiday schedule affects ClearOne, although I heard Daryl is planning to take some time off so not sure if he has someone else taking care of the place while he is away.
    I can make it most days, but Sunday dec 28 would probably be the best day for me if we all want to get together - maybe at Clearone?

    Hey WWC. If you're gonna do a Winnex and SOTX demo session, I wonder if you'd be interested in allowing me to join you and turn it into a 3-way Winnex-SOTX-Pointfore demo night? After all, a little friendly competition never hurts, eh?

    Getting back to the subject of a BF meet, I don't know know whether ClearOne would be the best choice for location. Somehow I don't think C1 would be able to accomodate all of us, judging by the showing we had last time kwun was here. The $10 VRC guest fee is steep, and it might take a bit of asking around to find enough VRC members to sign everyone in. But at least the facilities can fit everyone in, and we can play for as long as we want until our limbs fall out.

    I second badrad's suggestion of doing a BF meet on Sun, Dec 28. However, may I propose that we hold it a VRC instead of C1?

    The problem with the VRC is for potentially such a large group, there will be complaints from other members. Sundays are unpredictable, but usually afternoons are packed, and late evenings are as well if the main adult groups show up.
    I got flack last time, but luckily there were less members that night so it wasn't that bad, but one of the regular members did mention it to the admin.

    Hey badrad. Sorry to hear that our little gathering got the BF-VRC members in trouble. But my question is, since all of the non-BF members were signed in as guests by some other BF-VRC members, what is that person complaining about?! Seems to me that he is not very accomodating...

    Getting back to the BF meet, if BreakMyStrings can indeed get tons of court time from Collingwood, would BF members be able to reserve ourselves a spot before everyone else?

    That's fine with me. I think getting Collingwood is probably better than VRC or C1 as I don't they would appreciate us showing off SOTX, Winex & Pointfore products (I know for sure, VRC will throw a fit).

    actually - half of the 'members' that I used to sign most of you in weren't actually there that night.... you weren't there earlier that night when i was grabbing every member in sight to use their name. that's what the other members compained about.

    I believe one of the VRC coaching staff heads the North American branch of Victor so I am sure if anyone has an issue with it, he might.

    Default Dec 28 at Collingwood

    Sorry guys!

    Collingwood Neighbourhood House will be re-finishing the gym floor along with the walls being painted.

    But as wood_22_chuck knows, I am looking for some court-time for my "badminton fix" during the Holidays.

    If I can book 3 or more courts for an extended period, sometime between now and New Years, I will post it on BF.

    Please note, these types of bookings tend to be last minute and require a fast response time.

    If you want places to play, check out http://www.badmintonbc.com

    If you are throwing out demos, can I come and let players demo the Karakal and Domino lines? Maybe test out my panhandle game against you.

    VRC coach that is Victor rep is named Calvin Holoboff.

    Yeah, I had a brief correspondance with him when I bought a Victor racquet... didn't know he was VRC coach until I came across his name on the VRC website.
