    Agree wholeheartedly. Coach Don really cares, he's passionate about teaching. That's the key to why he's a great coach.

    Mama Panda rikie-rikie Pat too. She said the next time Pat comes down, she'll make her world...OK, semi-world famous Szechuan Spicy Beef Noodle.

So either they know a big order is coming or our Panda is a bit of a flirt with the gals.
    Let's see, we have had the following types of food so far:

    +Hawaiian BBQ
    +Thai
    +Hong Kong Style Cafe
    +Chinese
    +Mexican
    +American
    +English Fish N' Chips
    +Indian
    +Japanese
    +Middle Eastern

    And about the female employees, Panda is 100% innocent.

    No problem, Panda lives only 4.5 miles from Disneyland and OCBC.

    I guess it's worth emailing the relevant person though (Derrick/Dan), to see what they say. If nothing else, they might give you a discount off your next racket, as a gesture of good will.

    Anyway, I'm gutted for you - it's a horrible feeling when you break a nice racket.
    Oh, that's a good info for me, I've never experienced in having a broken racquet('cause I hope it won't happen).

    I think I need to clarify:

    That's not official DC Badminton policy, and I'm not representing DC Badminton in any way (all I do is graphics - that's it).
    I'm not saying you will get a discount or anything else - just that if you think maybe the racket was defective, then it couldn't hurt to have the seller take a look, because you never know. I'd say the same whether it was a Panda Power racket, or Yonex, or any other brand.

    Hello morning, sorry the previous msg was a typo. I was trying to say, the whole intention/objective is to provide feedback and to assess the damage and why it happen. NOT into asking for exchange or a cut off the next one.

    yup definitely. i will be sending the racket down to derrick over the weekends.

    I suppose Panda is sick and tired of Disneyland after visiting it umpteen times!

    Hey! You can even provide all-in-one home-stay packages for the badminton nut and his wife and kids. Badminton at OCBC for him, and play at Disneyland for his family.

    Actually, Panda has not been to D-Land in over 15 years.

    Hmmmm, "Panda's Bed, Breakfast and Badminton", that sounds like a plan!

    Panda's B,B&B: Where you can get a firm mattress, a hard-boiled egg and a stiff racquet.

    (Sounds like ormy4 stayed at "Panda's Bed, Breakfast/Lunch/Supper/Snacks and Badminton"?)

    Think that is the most food I ever ate in consecutive days. Was interesting thou 215 lbs going and 215 lbs coming back. Good thing we played lots of badminton or could have been scary. The lady at the badminton concession at OCBC said she was going to miss me as between Panda and I her mineral water sales tripled.

    Funny Panda discovered I had a sweet tooth as I was excited to go to Home Depot and Panda was puzzled why. So when we were going to pay I ran over and snagged a few chocolate bars and said "my master plan just like in Canada knew I would find a few ".
    So Panda was telling people the story and we were discussing good sweet places to go.
    I said I was surprised that I hadn't run into more selection compared to home. I said we had O'Henry bars, crunchie bars, and wunderbars and more. I then said I couldn't even
    find any turtles anywhere as they are so addictive. Coach Don's wife shrieked you eat poor little turtles in Canada and everyone turned and looked at me. I had to explain what it was a few times as someone thought we dipped them in chocolate and etc.

    Was pretty funny and understandable when they explained some of the interesting things
    eaten by some cultures.

    http://www.nestle.ca/en/products/brands/turtles/index

    Even funnier looking up, they were invented in California.

    Well off to play tonight hopefully I can remember parts of my training.
    Get to try the prototype Panda gave me oops did I say that out loud.

    Bonus heard it was cold while I was away and today sat out in the sunroom
    and laced rackets for a while.
