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!
