    Default Darth's Xmas Visit to Vancouver

    Duration: December 22nd evening till Sunday January 7th.
    Where i will live: Richmond, BC

    Days I'm occupied:
    -XMas shopping for Mom and Sister.
    -Boxing Day shopping
    -Catch canucks game against Flames/xmas party on Dec 27th evening
    -Catch Canucks vs Dallas game at GM place January 4th
    -December 29th - mandatory rest day before tourney
    -December 30th for C2NY Tourney (maybe 31st too if i get that far)
    -Xmas party at brother-inlaw's Saturday dec 23rd
    -Dec 25th

    Days available (am hoping to play):
    December 23rd: Available in the morning or late in the evening (thinking about playing at Yumo b/c VRC may be out of the way and my mom WILL get mad if i play to the late hours - But I'm going to try to make it since i'm worried that this will be the only day i'll get PT with and against Vining)

    Dec 24th: free for most of the day unless i haven't finished shopping
    Dec 26th: Evening should be free
    Dec 27th: Free during the morning and day
    Dec 28th: I'm good to go
    Jan 1st - 6th: pretty much open

    Things that would be nice to do:
    -Check out PeteLSDs stringing setup Live (and take a nice nap)

    Things that i have to do:
    -Get some practice time with ViningWolff

    Will update this thread more often in the near future.

    PM me if you want to play!

    One requirement: MUST PLAY FEATHER. Will consider playing plastic only after the C2NY tourney.

    Cheers!

    Sounds like fun, wish I could be there. I'd want to take:

    Advanced Stringing 980 with Peter
    International Jump Smashing 801 with Vining
    Racket Accumulation 101 with Paul

    Lol... Once the baddy fanatics visiting vancouver, seems we never leave any single hour to be free of action. Oh yeah, visit PeteLSD's pro string shop is a must.

    I'm all packed and ready...now i need some luck since I fly stand-by to vancouver all the time via Air Canada. i have 3 chances friday night to fly in (which are pretty full). If i can't get on those...then i'll stay overnight and try the morning flights (first one at 7am). If i catch any of the morning flights i should be able to make it to VRC...but only late in the evening 10:30pm or later...because i have a family dinner to attend.

    Crossing my fingers.

    Played Richmonpro last night - only minor pain, but am a little slow on the long lunges due to my roght leg being numb and weak.

    However the boomstick is working quite nicely.

    I'll try to be at VRC for around 10 pm.

    it's 2:45am PST... i've been in richmond for about 23 hrs.. my flight arrived at 3:30am saturday morning. Had a terrific time at VRC and got plenty of time to play with and against Vining. He definately had the boomstick going.. And i was definately impressed with his skill especially since he was playing with one leg....(man i suck)

    hmm...i think the next time i'm available to play is after boxing day week. Give me a shout if you're interested in doing a drop in at richmond pro, c1 or c2 or even Yumo...

    Hey Dink...I just noticed that Mr. Wolff's rackets were Forza branded...didn't pay attn to the model...He did pop the strings on one and PeteLSD will be restringing that boomstick..

    time for bed....

    It was great seeing Vining and Howie again. Unfortuantely, they were preoccupied with their own group. There is always next time!
