    Well, I drove out there last night (around 9:30pm) and no luck, either someone took it or look at it and chuck it away in the trash.

    I've left a note for the VRC office and janitor to see if anyone turned it in.

    Sorry to hear about that WWC... hope it isn't too expensive to replace.

    For competitive play, you can check out Deer Lake. It's semi-private, plastic shuttles unfortunately, but good calibre. You can show up, but the guy in charge is quite strict. A couple guys I know got chased away, so be prepared.

    Thank you so much,wood-22_chuck!
    Why the guy in charge is so strict?A competitive team is good,but a friendly team is more important to me.So,let it be!
    By the way,will you go to Collingwood this Sunday?I will be there .

    Deer lake is a private social thing that a group of folks (regulars) rented and get together to play so a lot of times they don't want drop-ins ('coz they don't know the level of the drop ins, and they want to minimize wait time). I believed that if you know someone who plays there regularly, they can invite you by informing the organizer beforehand to ensure that there is space, etc.

    I've never played there but been there and I find it dark (lack of lighting) and courts are not amply spaced plus the down side is the use of plastics.

    Come play at the Richmond Badminton Club on Tues/Thurs/Sun from 6:30 to approx. 9:50pm. Drop-ins are $7.00 and feather shuttles are provided. I will be there every Sunday and some Tues/Thurs.

    Yeah, Deer Lake facility is not that great, plus low ceilings, to boot. The players are competitive. Friendly? Hmmm ... Let's just leave it at competitive

    Yeah XYQH-watson, will be at Collingwood this Sunday!

    XYQH,
    You may yet get an excellent game if the two gentlemen Jason & Richard form VRC shows up like last week (they say they will this week). Good players and I was done after 3 games against them. So make sure u show up, could be a good match

    I dropped by Dear Lake a few times by myself and no one said anything to me, hahaha and after the second time, some people recognized me and actually started talking to me. So deerlake is not excatly that strict on dropins but I also agree most of the people there aren't that friendly.

    I've played at Deer Lake before and been accepted as regular player there. My problem with Deer Lake is with the floor only - too hard for my body to take. The people are quite nice over there.

    I found three new good players today in Collingwood.Two youth ,name TOM and THIN(?),another older one is Robin,from Coqutlam.
    I partnered with Floria to play again Tom and Bobby,lost at 15:17.
    Maybe Jason&Richard did not come today.

    No, Richard and Jason did not show up today, maybe next week.
    Thanks for the gerat game, it was fun. I hope Tom and Thinh will continue to show up, just like the old days when I used to play them.
    See you Tuesday at Renfrew? If not, next Sunday.
