any chance we could still know the match-ups and the results?

Really sorry for the late reply! We were busy with something at GGBC and didn't get to post the results earlier. Sorry! OK here are the results first. We had really close games at the tournament. There were 7 matches; we ended the first 6 matches with a 3:3. In the last match which was Men's Doubles, we made it 1:1 in the first 2 rounds and finally, in the 3rd round, Smash City team defeated GG Mike / James by 21:19 ! So the final result was, Smash City won the tournament with a final score of 4:3. Congratulations to Smash City!!
We had an unforgettable night at the tournament. A lot of good friends and guests came to cheer on their favorite players and we all enjoyed the camaraderie expressed thru-out! The courts were packed and the atmosphere was nice and friendly! We hope everyone had a great time as we did and hope to see you all come support us at the next INTER-CLUB tournament between GGBC, Smash City and hopefully other clubs as well!
Our apologies again for the last reply, Westcoasthunnie. Hope to see you at our next tournament too!

^^Off topic-That's too bad you can't come but so nice of you..^^
..wow, Sally, so nice of you to stay back and watch Mike's clubs.....And he'll be having a ball in Beijing. Is he already there?..
Hmm, good to know a lot of GGBCers are going to the OG.
Okay, i will PM you my Beijing contact hp no., once i'm there.
Btw, there's already a get-together thread in the 2008 Olympics sub-forum (under 2008 Tournament). Not sure if Mike and the other GGBCers would want to join the BC get-together??...If difficult, I will try to meet & greet with him/them.

Mike in BEIJING
Mike is leaving tonight, Thursday and he will arrive on the 9th. I hope you can find him there. I mean.. I don't know how big the venue is but he'll be sitting in on every single match so look for him ha ha... He has already got a posse' of people to meet up with.. Members at GGBC and others too I don't know... he's on the phone all day long making arrangements to meet this and that, including Yonex head Boss from Japan and also Paisan from BWF.. He's only going for the week of the badminton games so he will be a little busy body while he's there. I do know the matches are like 10am to 1pm then 6pm to 10pm so he will have time to kill in between should be.
So let me know your number anyways and if you guys can meet up then it'd be fun right? When we went to Anaheim for the World Championships, we saw soo many familiar faces from GGBC and other clubs too. It was like a big party from Bay Area. Ha haa.. That'd be nice! Hope you have FUN too! We will enjoy the Sun here, while you enjoy the "heat" there! The Olympic "heated" SPIRIT ! It should be TOTALLY AWESOME!!
Ta Ta! Sally. EE LOO SUIN FOONG!!

Don't know what happened, the above appeared twice now.. Ooops.. Sorry.. I erace this one..

..thanks for the info Sally!...And yes, i've also sent you a PM with the phone number of another BC member in Beijing (he's basically our "host" in Beijing). As a matter of fact, maybe i'll PM Mike also.
I guess Mike and i are leaving tonight also. Maybe i'll meet him at the airport (in CHN??)...
Yes, i understand Mike is going to be running around and meeting many people. We're just planning for a mini BC get-together. We will try to meet, initially, at the venue, first. Most likely on the 12th (Tue.) or 15th (Fri.).
Hopefully we'll run into him and he'll make a bit of time.
