Thanks to Hauge for being so generous with the tickets. The lighting at the venue is very bad for the players and it was bright for the player facing south (roughly where Matt, myself and KKLam were sitting).
Joachim was interviewed by Fairchild after the game and he was complaining about the lighting. The flooring was "hard" on the knees.
The sessions was fun. After the TH/JP event, they switched over to table tennis and had two local retired athletes (Cliff Ronning - NHL and Lui Passaglia - CFL) play a game of TT against each other before the real professionals duel it out.
Madbad, KKLam, Hauge and myself spent the time chatting in the VIP lounge waiting for the 7pm session. Unfortunately I was not able to stay but PeteLSD joined the group.

It's nice to meet Hauge and many thanks to him for offering us the VIP passes. He even took us to the locker room and introduced Taufik and Andre to us. We were having fun chatting, getting autograph and taking pictures with Taufik, Joachim and Andre. This is a once in a life time opportunity to have players of such calibre playing in Vancouver as badminton is not very popular here (I mean in the main stream society). Thanks again Hauge and thanks to Madbad, Matt and Canuckbur for sharing the pictures.
