    They were stricter and asked people to put away their cameras on QF day. However, I saw nobody getting asked to leave.

    Oh yeah, they were really strict today. Security wouldn't even let press photographers through to the court level. Some of the press got really angry.

    Such an attitude is crazy!
    Badminton needs as much press as it can get.
    Football fans would have burned down the stadium.

    That's because they're not worthy.. Trust me, Chris. They're crappy pictures. I sat WAY back on the 26th and sat quite in front on the 29th, but still, crappy pictures. (But I still have my camera.. Thx )

    Anyhow, I think I saw Hau-ge (did ask for a favor but then I thought it'd be too annoying so I stopped asking ) and BadMania.. What do they do, actually? Seemed like such a nice job..

    Default ^^Well..^^

    ..at least & hopefully you've enjoyed the matches..It's fine, there's always next time for the pics..
    Btw, did you take any pics with any players??..

    *Hau-ge and badMania are just regular folks, like you & me. They just happen to reside in HK and are regular attendees at the HK Open.

    I really enjoyed the matches.. Did take pics with Indo players only, Nova, Chandra and Butet.. Because it was easy. They were chatting outside the stadium.

    But they had the tag thingie hanging around their neck.. Press passes? (I have no idea) And they were watching from the players' area.. *confused*

    Default ^^Not bad a time..^^

    ..any pics w/ those players to share w/us??..

    Oh, those name badges/press pass thingie, they got them from either the players or the team managers or the organizers themselves. That's a "reward" for getting to know them & helping them out, in many previous tourneys. Sort of like they have "connections" with those people..
