    What can i say going to S.A was better for me then going to Ballarat
    Cost $5000+ for Ballarat with no trophy to show.
    Cost only $500 for S.A. and got a trophy, also left many defeated and shattered opponents in my wake

    The only bad thing from the trip .. the motel bed, couldnt sleep on it, blanket to tightly tugged into the mattress, pillow hard as .. and also bad food from a petrol station store gave me the run on the friday night, only managed 1 hour sleep before the saturday games .. yet still able to kick me some interstate butt

    Grrrrrrrr NEXT time, 'someone' can WARN me:

    1. I am telling jokes to the wrong audience who are about to lynch me
    2. Paying ridiculous amounts of money for some tiny bites of Korean food in a DESERTED restaurant
    3. SA oceans are actually $%#@ FREEZING COLD at nighttime in winter

    Smile The Story

    It all started with two noble and brave Victorian adventurers setting out to bring civility to the savages of South Australia.

    Not phased by the disaster of our last road trip, we once again geared up and hit the open road in my Toyota Camery with its new engine …. with full engine oil this time.

    50km out of Melbourne we reached our first milestone … the break down point of our last badminton endeavour.

    Shortly after that we made our first stop for lunch at a country town, and tried our luck at this lottery place with a few quick picks … unfortunately the best we got was 2 numbers and 1 sub

    As the blanket of night draped over us, the radio coverage fading away and Anthony’s hill billy tune humming intensify. Call it youthful curiosity or call long distance boredom madness but we decided to take a detour south to a place marked “Green Swamp” on the map.
    After many miles driving along a narrowed dirt track, we reached the mysterious green swamp …. Which by all account was just a small grass paddock. Let our mistake be a communal lesson .. green swamp is not worth a detour.

    And in this hellish place call South Australia, there were giant Koala with glowing red eyes, and this the 8th wonder of the world … the jewel of South Australia … wow .. be prepared to be amazed and in awed … a jeep on a pole.

    Us inside the stadium amongst all those natives of South Australia … and everything we’ve heard about them are true they did have two heads and tail.
    Photo was taken by Ann who was the first familiar face we recognise inside the stadium .. and judging by her greeting of “What the hell are you two idiots doing here?” shows that she was obviously very happy and excited to see us.



    In between games whilst browsing around we uncovered a dark secret about our Monash uni friend Jun, she’s one of them, a South Australian .. it does explains a lot of things about her … and to think a week ago at the Yonex Gran Prix I almost had her rubbing ointment on me … to think I almost had a South Australian touch me .. the germs and disease I could of contracted J

    Omission:
    To keep this posting PG and to protect Anthony from his wife vengeance, the following part of the trip was omitted.

    What we did Saturday night when we went to Adelaide City for dinner and the trip back.

    But if you guys are interested just quietly ask us about..how Anthony making enemies with a lesbot gang, Elephant girl, my fail attempt at hooking up with Valez, the Korean BBQ dinner, the dancing blonde in the car park, the mini skirt feast at the milk shake place, our encounter with the Russian mafia, Anthony’s get rich quick schemes/scams, the steam in the car, the food poisoning…. Heck this has been one full on trip

    Please elaborate on the failed attempt with Valez. Did you tell her you were the one who called out to her during the Yonex Grand Prix ? And where is this picture you promised.

    Yes a great journey to SA, and REMEMBER - what stays on the badminton trip, stays on the badminton trip

    Default Results from Interclub Match Vs Southern Star

    Although Titans won convincingly, many games were very close especially in Open and B Grades. A number of Southern Star (SS) players could not make and that gave us a slight advantage.

    The overall result was :

    Open Grade : SS - 5 games (534 points) beat Titans - 5 games (518 points)
    A Grade : Titans - 9 games (596 points) BEAT SS - 1 game (425 points)
    B Grade : Titans - 5 games (544 points) BEAT SS - 5 games (500 points)
    C Grade : Titans - 9 games (592 points) BEAT SS - 1 game (360 points)

    Individual scores will be emailed to participants only.

    You had a good chance of getting a trophy. I'm in the same boat as you, came third. Trophies only went to the top 2 players in each grade. Better luck in November when the rematch will be played.
