after the mystery of figuring who's who (Robbo77 was solved at the end) for new players, this certainly can be a lot more fun (or confusing) for everybody.
Then again, we "know" who are the active CCC board participant, do we not?
To Jason K (my partner on friday nite)+Chris:
On ducking - important skill while you duck the shuttle when you get out of the way while expecting your partner to smash past where your head is 0.1 second ago
While having so many "ducking" episodes, Chris might want to integrate this in his miscellanous chapter besides picking up shuttle, passing shuttle (yeah man, i am still learning).
Following are things that "ducking" might come in handy
- you might try to duck to fool your opponent for thinking you gonna smash, might be effective
- in mix doubles position, ducking before the serve would be quite good as it gives your partner more space for serving
- if you dye your hair in white and put face paint in white (same color as shuttle), that's gonna be pain in the butt for people to keep track of you before returning the shot
We all get hit on behinds, shoulder, but hit on the head or neck might not be so much fun afterall. Anyone can recall an incident for that?

How was everyone's mid-autumn festival celebrations? Andrew W and I were trying real hard to work out if we could sneak out of our family dinners to get to CCC but unfortunately we couldn't make it.. good to see so many did make it thou..
Re this Friday, Laurie is going away to Perth (leaving me behind ) so he won't be coming to CCC... I'm still 'umming and ar-ing' whether I'll come but knowing me, I'll probably get lost driving there!
We won't be attending the week after coz one of my friends is performing in a concert and we've been forced to attend ...
Catch u all later then!

How was our mid-autumn festival celebrations?... Thanks LisaC for asking: It's was GOOD !!!
yschin brought moon cakes for our supper after our CCC session on Friday 6-Oct-2006.
After reading your post... "thinking of escaping your family dinner to play Badminton"... I was thinking if you could answer a question that I have asked. Please refer to this thread= http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36848
And also, refering to Classical Music, please refer to my mention about "Pop Music" Vs "Classical Music" in this thread= http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=446031#post446031
I am assuming that you are referring to the 2 Jasons' and Wendy's performance... their violin performance.
Have a Good Day, LisaC .

Mid-Autumn Festival CelebrationsOriginally Posted by chris@ccc
On the subject of the mid-autumn festival celebrations...
Here is a report from CCTV.
====== start report ======
Chinese families reunite
There are still two days left of China's National Day Holiday. And today is the Mid-Autumn Festival, a traditional day for Chinese families to reunite. Many overseas Chinese and compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan have travelled long distances to return to their hometowns and join family celebrations. There's an old Chinese saying that goes, the full moon is brightest in your hometown. And so many compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan have returned to their hometowns for joyful family reunions.
Taiwan resident Mr. Xie said: "It's a wonderful thing--family reunions. I hope direct flights across the Taiwan Straits will become a reality soon, so the trip home will be more convenient for me."
Some Taiwan Hakka people have returned to Mei-zhou of southern Guangdong Province, where the Hakka originated. In a traditional ethnic home, generations of families are happily celebrating together.
Taiwan resident Long Zhenshui said: "It's very meaningful, spending the festival with my family in this ancient building."
Taiwan resident He Peicai said:"People on both sides of the Taiwan Straits belong to the big China family. Besides reuniting with our families, we also hope for the reunification of China."
Symbolizing reunions and fortune, mooncakes are an important tradition for this holiday. People across China's mainland have made mooncakes that range in size from home-made delicates to huge, nearly 200-kilogram ones.
Tonight, major Chinese cities will light thousands of flower lanterns to celebrate the festival, as families reunite and celebrate the full moon.

Warning to movies goers
I've just received a report from a good friend... VERY SCARY.
Here is the report.
====== start report ======
Everyone, please read this.
It is not only happening in Australia but around the world.
Be safe! What a world! Please read...
A few weeks ago in a movie theatre in Melbourne a person sat on something that was poking out of one of the seats. When she got up to see what it was she found a needle sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying a quote; You have just been infected by HIV quote.
The Disease control Centre in Melbourne reports many similar incidents have occurred in many other Australian cities recently. All tested needles are HIV Positive. The Centre also reports that needles have been found in the cash dispensers in ATMs.
We ask everyone to use extreme caution when faced with this kind of situation. All public chairs/seats should be inspected with vigilance and caution before use. 17 people have been tested positive in the Western suburbs alone in the last 2 months!!! A careful visual inspection should be enough.
In addition they ask that each of you pass this message along to all members of your family and your friends of the potential danger.
We all have to be careful at public places! This is very important.
Just think about saving a life of someone even you don't know by forwarding this message.
Please, take a few seconds of your time to pass it along.

Hi Chris, can you please verify with your friend on where he/she received the email. I don't want to spread unnecessary panic around. I went to www.redcross.org.au and can't find the article. You might want to post the link to the article above.

Scary NeedlesOriginally Posted by BadFever
I have redirected you question to my friend.
She works in New Zealand at the Counties Manukau District Health Board. It consists of a whole region of general health clinics in South of Auckland, the Manukau Super Clinic.
Since New Zealand is 2 hours ahead of our Australian Time, she would have just left work.
I will inform you when she replies tomorrow.
