    But if you were talking about shoes, i recommend other brand like fila cos the hairing bone structure at the bottom of the shoe is much smaller. The smaller the hairing bone, the better it's for grip. That grip of the shoe is especially important for us who like to play net.

    For shoes you need to go to their factory outlet, like fila factory outlet or nike factory outlet near the city.

    Further information on how to choose of shoe, please consult Chris on supper.

    If you are talking about clothes, I have yet to see Yonex shirt being sold in Melbourne.

    C u friday!
    Thanks for that Ken but yeah, I do know about Sportsmart but they rarely do specials on badminton racket now. I bought a MP-55 for $100 including BG65 string a long time ago from them.

    But look what they've done to my beloved Armortec 700 they've painted the shaft red... it doesn't look good mixing with black on the frame. (the pic on the left)

    and for you guys who's interested. the new NS7700 (the one on the right).



    Cheers,
    Andrew

    One more thing to add on the above, for badminton grip, if you like replacement grip (a grip that you put on top of your existing one) - you could go anywhere. But for replacement grip, not many places carry those. Even so, some of them are very expensive and charge $20.

    But look what they've done to my beloved Armortec 700 they've painted the shaft red... it doesn't look good mixing with black on the frame. (the pic on the left)
    I always wonder why there are 2 different color version of armotec 500/700. Could that be because they are made from different countries?

    Nahhh.. Yonex sometimes release update version for some of the racquet, nothing to do with they they are manufactured. I think it's only a marketing ploy. As far as I know, AT700 has 3 colours. The original 1, then a Japan Red came out around 6mths ago.. then this latest one. Same with AT500, the new colour came out at the start of the year.

    Cheers... chris@ccc
    The MS QF looks quite interesting now..

    LCW vs BCL
    CJ vs LHI
    CH vs PG
    LD vs HH

    I am predicting SF will be LCW vs LHI and PG vs LD. Both CJ and CH got pushed to 3 sets in their 2nd round matches and they probably are disadvangted when PG and LHI had easier victories...

    What do you guys think??

    Default Greetings from USA!!

    Hey everyone,
    As requested, here's some pics of Boston and me attending the conference. Boston's been great. The weather has been beautiful and people have been really nice and friendly. I don't notice the difference in accent much (though the texans and southernors have a really distinct one) and I've been complemented on how aussie i sound (I've been bombarded with questions regarding the croc hunter and 'CRIKEY!!'). I've had a few close calls with crossing the road, keep on forgetting I'm not at home. The food servings are huge and I'm gonna blow up into a huge whale by the time i get back, I desperately need some exercise!!! Laurie's well, he's currently stuck in Newcastle and I miss him lots . Anyway, should leave this short and sweet, hope all is well!

    Hi LisaC,

    Thank you for your pics from Boston, USA.

    Boston looks lovely and you look lovelier.

    Hope that the conference goes well for you. And take care when crossing the road.

    Yes, we will give you the exercise you desperately needed when you have returned to CCC Badminton. But please don't come back as a huge whale.

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    Default Friday night, 22-Sep-2006, is our CCC Session#23, CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Hi everyone@ccc,

    My internet connection/service was down for the past 48 hours. That's why you did not find my usual invitation to you and your friends to our CCC Friday Social Badminton.

    I had the invitation prepared in advance, but I just could not post it. Well, better late than never... here is the invitation.

    Friday night, 22-Sep-2006, is our CCC Session#23, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    We will still welcome friends of yours or anyone new to join us in this session.

    To Date
    : 104 players have attended CCC.
    We are still welcoming players to join our CCC Membership. Our membership will be closed when membership reaches 32.
    Send me an email to ask me for a CCC Membership Form.
    My email address is chris@cccbadminton.com
    Players are to print out your Membership Form and to fill in your details before you attend.
    Players without printer can fill in our printed forms when you arrive. Just ask Llewellyn at the reception desk.

    As usual, I will be out coaching on Friday so I won't be replying mails.
    But you can get me on my mobile phone = 0419-542-037.

    CCC Handicapped Competition: Participants are asked to;
    1. Organise yourself with a Doubles Partner earlier before the night.
    2. Arrive to inform us of your Doubles Partnership, so that our competition boards can set up earlier.
    3. Note: When the attendance is low, Singles Competition will be played instead.
    4. The Selecting Team per MAGNETIC BOARD is to draw empty boxes on the SCORE BOARD.
    5. The Winning Team of the Match is to fill/update the empty boxes on the SCORE BOARD.

    Don't forget: We are going for Supper(wine-and-dine) at Kingsways, Glen Waverley, after our session.

    May more ideas be suggested @SUPPERTIME.

    Our Wednesday CATS & Social Session was also excellent on 20-Sep-2006.


    Cheers... chris@ccc
