    1. You need to scroll down to "Manage Attachments", click on it.

    2. Then the boxes under "Browse" will appear for you to click on and attach your pictures. Make sure your pictures are of acceptable size as indicated. I reduce my pics to only 25% of their original and have to accept a less than perfect result.

    3. After attaching your pics, click "Upload" and wait patiently. When all pics have been uploaded, click "Submit Reply" shown below "Manage Attachments".

    Have fun!

    BTW which state in the US are you from?

    Default Classic Match 1: kong-19/badfever vs cyclone9/joseph

    Hmm, it seems that non of us described how the matches went, other than the scoreline ......

    Let me describe some of the memorable classics, wakakakaka ......

    Classic Match 1: kong-19/badfever vs cyclone9/joseph

    The veteran Aussie pair brought together a hundred years of "living" experience, and it really showed on court. The first half of game 1 was really competitive, until cyclone and joseph brought in a category 9 storm into the picture at the final 3rd. Game 1 went the cyclone's way, 21-15 despite a huge effort by kong-19 to manage the net.

    In game 2, the Malaysians seemed overconfident. Badfever used up all his aching muscles to apply pressure on the hurricane to backcourt, which put the Malaysians in disarray. kong-19 was not under pressure at all at the net, and was able to play some delightful kills. The Aussies capture game 2 21-11, at the cost of zero reserve energy.

    In game 3, it was a battle between street-smart uncles against a rapidly recovering typhoon. Initially, the Aussies were able to play at their own pace and controlled the rallies for a quick 7-3 lead. Enter the Hurricane Katrina, and cyclone9/joseph took 8 of the next 9 pts for a 3 pt lead at the intermission. The Aussie uncles fought hard to close it but mistakes from fatigue brought down their campaign.

    Malaysians won 21-15, 11-21, 21-15 but they now have a healthier respect for the uncles.

    Default Classic Match 2: Ants/Terry vs Scann/choyonn

    Classic Match 2: Ants/Terry vs Scann/choyoon

    This was the last match of the competition, with Malaysia already leading 7-1. Nonetheless, this match was billed as one of the most closely contested matches in the history of BC competitions. It was also a grudge match against "Malaysian traitors" since Ants/Terry combination is originally a Malaysian "crack pair" that had been bought ..... yup, everyone has a price, it seems.

    The match was played at furious pace, and shuttles were seen flying threateningly towards Kim, the umpire of the match. The pairs were equally matched in power, but Scann/choyoon could not easily penetrate the World imports' stingy defences. Despite Ants, err, reported injury, the World pair took game 1 comfortably at 21-17.

    It was more of the same in game 2 and the World pair were just 2 points away from the match at 19-17. This was before a litany of mistakes (or is it a time activated injury to Ants ) forced the game away from them. The Malaysians took control and breached the previously impregnable defenses 21-19 to force a decider.

    Momentum having shifted, it was another close battle in game 3 but by this time, Scann/choyonn had the initiative.

    The "loyal" Malaysians prevailed 17-21, 21-19, 21-19.

    Default Classic Match 3: Hau-ge/chris (ctjcad) vs limsy/keonloh

    Classic Match 3: Hau-ge/chris (ctjcad) vs limsy/keonloh

    It was a battle of mismatched pairs, the heavyweights of the World against the finweights of Malaysia.

    Before the start of the match, the Malaysian camp was very concerned with the abilities of these two "challengers". Chris had put on a lot of, err, muscles since his last trip here at the World Championships 3 years ago. Not to mention his legendary "de-centralized training" over the past two weeks in and around the Malaysian Peninsula, covering all sorts of Malaysian food.

    As for Hau-ge, it had always been known that he benefit from tactics and training learnt from the Indonesian Thomas/Uber Camp. And as we are all aware, Indonesians are the most tricky badminton exponents in the world.

    The "light as kite" Malaysians held the initiative early with fast moving limsy managing the frontcourt and keonloh pummelling from behind. Occasionally, over-exuberance cost limsy dear when he smashed to his own court ala table tennis. At other times, his 6 inches high "powerful jumping smash" didn't manage to pass the net.

    But despite the limitation, the World pair were forced to do hard running, huffing and puffing backwards and forwards, side to side and thus were unable to rotate well to bring their guns to bear. By the end of the match, Hau-ge didn't just lose the match, he lost his shirt .......

    The Malaysians had an "upset" 21-14, 21-15 victory.

    Secret training session by some the World Team members at the official venue 3 days before the competition. Sadly, their efforts didn't affect the results

    Default Thank you again for the baddy session..

    ..just want to say, once again, thank you to the organizers (mainly samuel882 & danielwong) for putting & arranging all the logistics & all of this together..And also for loosai for providing a venue for us and allowing us to use the venue for the gathering..

    Thank you again for the rest of the members who've helped, participated and sacrificed their time and schedule to join us and make this event possible. Without your attendance, none of this would be possible! It was great to meet you all!! A good memory to cherish for sure!!

    The official shuttlecocks; if not mistaken, we used 2 different brands, both speed 77 which was, imo, s-l-o-w...

    ..pardon us for coming in late; but as far as i recall, all 9 matches ended within 1.5 hrs (started close to 10am and ended around 11-ish). Much shorter than expected. Appreciate, anyway, for helping out with the last minute pairing arrangement..
