    Default bad shuttles

    Hey guys, the shuttles have been very poor lately

    On Wednesday it was like playing in slow motion and very hard to kill the shuttle and Saturdays lately have been the same.

    One of the guys said the black Aeroplane shuttles, speed 51 are flying very well on Thursday nights there, so could we try these? Also maybe try the RSL ones that Kobeng sells?

    If cost is an issue, I am sure we are all happy to pay $11 or later on $12 to cover the cost of better shuttles, coz it sought of ruin the game playing with wrong speed and bad quality shuttles...

    I think we are moving to the Aeroplane shuttles after this batch runs out. We were trialling the Victor shuttles but they are not as good as the Prince or Aeroplane ones. I believe on both Saturday and Wednesday night there were at least two of the following brands to choose from : Aeroplane, Victor and Prince. Good to get some feedback. Thanks Anthony.

    .. What are you choosing me for ... and i believe the vuvuzela were are better alternative then trumpets to announce my return last saturday

    .. anyway, only the shuttles use by SS are slower then those Victor shuttle, and Anthony are you really suggesting that you would have a better smash with a faster shuttle .. no shuttle known is fast enought to make that happen

    Why didnt we just stick with the sealion .. they were the best shuttle we've ever had ...

    Default loverboy?

    Vien has got a new secret admirer lala Come on Vien make up your mind which side you are batting for

    Hey my smash way better now I wear the suit, no more tennis elbow, some shoulder niggle still, but that is old age

    Yes the sea lion were ok, but break a lot! My bet is on aeroplane black 51, and if not, then put it down on the roulette wheel, maybe I make some cash instead

    Great I can sit back and wait for those flower and chocolates to be dropped off at my front door

    Anyway has Jacky email you back about the RMIT tournament this Saturday? .. what grade are we in and did he find a mix partner for use both ? .. and also found another 2006 RMIT medallion ... looks like I won the B mix, and the A/B combine double that year .... and with my current singles form, unbeaten in Altona * grade and CBA * grade in the last 3 or 4 weeks into this season so far, I recon i should be able to claim the C or D grade singles .... We should have a side bet, which ever one of us collects more Nemesis scalp this tournament wins a free dinner afterward .. you in

    Thats nothing to celebrate about .. just more eyes and ears sussing out our tournament strategies .. making life that much harder

    Doesnt matter where we play the interclub, if they still insist on having a female player in each grade we'll still struggle to fill the teams, even if Mike fills in again ..... someone's got to tell Chloe and the other Nemesis skirts to just be good W.A.Gs and cheer from the sideline and not play

    Yeap, GF shopping, dinner and movie time is slowly killing off BC vienb
    ... or and just tryed out a new Korean BBQ place in Footscray yesterday after badminton .. it was similar to that Korean place we went to in Adelaide ... bloody expensive for a restaurant in Footscray .. but like in Adelaide it did have a chef (it was a guy and not a pretty Korean girl this time ) stand at your table cooking and cutting up your food for you .. at least this place gave bigger pieces of wagyu beef... 8/10


    Well knocked out 2 Nemesis (both name Terry, therefore I have adopted the title of "The terror of Terries") in the singles, before meeting a 3rd Nemesis Yutoa in the C final .. and lost that encounter ... if losing to a Nemesis wasnt bad enought i find out that runners up get a medallion instead of a trophy ... not happy Mr Jacky
    ... but I am very happy to here Jacky saying that Yutoa is now ban from C single but that I'm still allow to enter C in the next JT tournament

    Well at lease we took out another Nemesis team in the double ... and at the same time help end Anthony's losing streak against Nemesis Ben C. ... and we should have beaten those Thai guys or at lease get more points to top the pool on percentage, we had them at the change over 15/12 only to loose 19/30 .. 5 more points and we would have had the percentage .. missed oppotunity

    Now to fill in my entry for Monash ... C/B

    Default 2nd calling

    your story just give me idea - we can become food critics and restaurant pay us to go there and dine However I will specialise in beef and fried noodles and milkshake and you do all the spicy stuff

    HEY! What happens on a badminton trip, STAYS on a badminton trip, you remember wrong Vien, there was no pretty korean girl at that restaurant, it was actually a 51 years old wrinkly old indian ladyboy.

    Excellent, with Yutao banned from C grade, it will clear the way to our trophies again Yes first time beaten that trophy hunter, so happy, but guess that means I am no longer a single's specialist, but a doubles player haha

    .. and I'm sure unlike us, young Yutao A.K.A "Big-Y" wouldnt know how to get a ban lifted and get back into C grade .......
    This maybe only the second time, since the Balarat tournament this year that I've gone further then you in a singles comp ... usually i tied out by the quarters or semi .. but because of our little bet and my semi opponent being a young boy suffering from the incurable Nemesis cancer, i had to do a mercy killing
    .. and if you want to be a double player ... learn to return smashes

    P.S. Just be thankful i havent told your wife about that other thing that happen on the Adelaide trip

    Where are the results? I forgot to record them!

    My biggest challenge for 2011 is to get back to B grade singles in Altona! Hopefully my absense this year will let them forget me and I can come back to place of my greatest singles victory -beating my former nemsis Jonsen Jonsen in the semi and then young Sinyu in the final haha, ah the good old days

    Bah humbug, my return of smash is great, right up to the time when I couldn't return their smash

    oh I still miss our midnight strolls together in the cool ocean waters of Adelaide in middle of winter time

    If Vincent at just over 40 can make a comeback and win in single comps, you at 39 should be able to get fit and bounce back and win a single comp as well

    You couldnt even return those Thai guys smashes, one they wont the fastest smash going around .. and two, you were at the back of the court on our side, and they where smashing from the back of the court on their side .. they were 13 meter smashes, thats plenty of time to react to it .. and by react i mean hit it back and not catch it with your other hand

    .. and as a warning to all other badminton players .. dipping your leg in the ice cold ocean after a long day of badminton comp isnt really a good recovery technique .. it did more damage then good ... thats one thing we'll wont copy the AFL again
