    I was at BBC3 today and they didn't reserve Court 13 until like 8 PM. I actually haven't seen the paper being used except once.

    i didn't read the whole 127 agenda report but what caught my attention was the "installation of a chemical monitoring system" ..... pretty much the same as what i saw when i first went to smash city 4 or 5 yrs ago

    The ammonia sensor is still functioning as far as I could tell when I went to BBC3/Smash City, and while I understand dangers of ammonia inhalation, I don't understand why ammonia would be a plausible danger in a badminton facility. Unless it was a leftover from the warehouse days. A thermostat set to 78 degrees would be much more useful.

    I remember, while flipping through the pages of the CBA application, some mention of specialized resistant glass be in use in the event nearby commercial businesses exploded/leaked industrial hazards into the vicinity. I imagine these gas sensors that are mentioned in the Bintang package refer to something similar, so as to protect the patrons from some industrial hazard.

    i listened to the planning commission meeting for Bintang5. the commissioners spent quite a bit of time to discuss the sensors and who's the responsbility it is to have those sensors. being in an industrial zone like Bintang5 and BBC3 (and probably most badminton facilities) it is a proper concern for the planning commission to have those sensors installed. they also mentioned locked in procedure which i think is for such accidents. i think it is very routine.

    also interesting in the hearing was the concern letter from "the other badminton facility" in the city, opposing the Bintang5 plan. citing potential economic and parking issues. the commissioner quickly shot down the former and addressed the latter issue.

    the plan was approved. congrats to Phuu and Stella.

    the archived meeting webcast is here in case you have tons of free time.

    I wonder when it would officially open. Last time they pre-announced a similar sized Bintang4 about 6 months ahead.

    let me ask Stella. or she could just tell us here.

    with something this grand of a scale, i don't expect it to be open until at least early next year.

    and i hope they won't use those horrible looking net poles in SSF. they are too tall and ghetto.

    Bintang right next to my house. Hopefully it'll be open when I come home for the summer.

    Thanks for the link, kwun.

    Congratulations to the Khus indeed, I wonder if Phuu's right elbow is in a support

    Thank you to all those of you who have supported us and are looking forward to seeing Bintang5 in Milpitas. This has been a long project for us, which we started back in 2009 (and finally convinced the landlord in Feb 2010). However, it is not yet there. As Kwun had posted, the City Council did unanimously approve of our project on August 25, 2010 despite the "comment letter" from "the other badminton facility in the city". But there is a 12 day appeal period, and not to our surprise, "the other badminton facility in the city" filed an appeal. So the City Council will again have to meet to review this appeal and then make a final decision.

    We will update everyone as soon as we have more news! Thank you again for your support. Phu's elbow is out of the support now but he still needs to wear a brace. He will be back on the courts soon... :]
