Thinking ahead to next year, I suggest the organizers should establish some ground rules like who automatically qualify for next year's event (maybe the top 8 companies) and who could be replaced (last 4?) or has to play qualifying round etc, so that we can have some new blood, and raise the quality of the tournament...
    i personally think that we should accomodate as many teams as applied. afterall it is supposed to be a friendly tournament and excluding teams will be detrimental to that spirit.

    I agree with you Kwun

    We have been trying to form a IBM team the last couple of days....and just started broadcasting the info, but it takes some processing time, and might not be until next week that people get to know about it. so after all the effort, and if we actually end up forming a team, I hope it will not be a wasted one.

    Also, if anyone from IBM is reading this post, please PM me if you wish to participate in this tournament.

    Too bad I no longer work at IBM, otherwise I'd be there with you. Haha.

    If anyone needs another member, please hire me and then I'll be eligible to play (hint hint: I'm looking for a job).

    Networking and badminton, together at last! Joking aside, best of luck in your search, it's tough out there, but things are rapidly improving

    Totally agree. I was not suggesting for complete exclusion, but just looking forward to next year with tons of companies lining up to join, how do we limit to still 16 max entrees.

    Glad to hear that IBM is putting together a team. Now where is HP, Microsoft, Sun, Apple, Applied, Symantec, NatSemi, AMD, Agilent, Juniper, KLA, Adobe...?

    i believe we can no longer limit it to 16. we should allow as many teams as possible. if we double the size, we just make a huge draw and rent the gym for 2 days.

    imagine, if we can get all those companies you listed, that will be a major event in the bay area. (well, except Sun, which will be under Oracle...)

    Last year, team Oracle came in uniform (I think or at least the same color shirt). I thought it was so cool. Hope other team would do the same.

    they wouldn't need a WD team. they can win by just MD/MX alone.

    very good players.

    i don't know their name, but i probably won't get more than 5 points if they play serious..

    If I remember correctly, kwun is right. Ebay basically took all the MD (#1 and #2) and XD. They had a good MD3 and ok WD, to entertain the other teams. The only question was whether they would win 5-0, 4-1, or 3-2. However, I must say Oracle XD did give them a very good match (BTW, I don't work for Oracle. Just enjoyed a good match).

    ctjcad is right also. With kwun and others teams, it should be very exciting and try to de-throne the champ. Let's build some bay area badminton rivalry
