frankly the entire experience could have been A or even A+, however with the way it was organized, I'm afraid I have to rate it a C or C-. First off they were playing too soft, even a SGVBC thursday match or a LABC league match would have been more exciting. LD jump smashed like.......5 times only? I got 3 shots off that was decent. I know it's exhibition and that it's suppose to be just promo. But they have to understand the only people in US that's willing to dish out $20 bucks for this are diehard fans that wanna see some good games. Second, they were giving a tube of shuttlecock per ticket, in the end they ran out, and gave 1 tube per group of people. The guy at the door sometimes counted 5 even though people weren't in a group. How do you run out? This is Li-Ning the distributor right? You counted how many tickets you sold right? That equals to how many tubes you need? Third, LD and BCL I'm sure are not expected to sign everything but the $100 dollars worth of LN products.....that was low. When Taufik was here he signed whateverz. Yonex didn't say buy $100 bucks worth. I'm sure there's lots to complain about whether it be big or small but overall it could have been done better IMHO.
BTW, The triplets are the famous Yeh sisters. The twins Rulan, Rulien played at US Open, and the World Championships representing USA. Rumei, the one playing with LD was their older sister.
Also, I have videos of the matches, I'll see if I can post them on youtube.

I think the show up north in Menlo Park should have more people (more Asian population than SoCal) and hopefully they'll get to have pictures and autograph session. Too bad LD and co. didn't stay longer..
Thanks, Bubbles, for capturing and posting the pics. And also for sharing a bit of your own view of the experience. Looking fw to the videos also!
*First time seeing Rulien and Rulan's older sister..

totally agree with your comments, bubbles.
i didnt want to write those other things- like when TH was here he "gave a fair chance" to fans in getting a pic or authograph or both- but since you did then i know i am not alone in this observation.
in fairness to LD and BCL, they appeared generous in signing/posing. whether its li-ning organizers decision to cordone fans out or the players themselves requesting this is still a question which befuddles me.
the free birdies issue was hilarious. though i didnt expect competition level shots to be executed i still was entertained just watching these top players move.
i think its not abc management's fault AT ALL but li-ning organizers lack of goodwill or foresight to at least take that extra care of customers or future customers. i know its unreasonable to give each person an autograph or hand shake but no effort was made to at least give "the first (or lucky) 20 or 100 average joes" a chance. effort made was very dismal.
once again i hope menlo fans get some benefit from our comments to make their experience more memorable.

Maybe then organizers can learn from this episode and put on a better show at Menlo Park. Imagine the goodwill created if they let the spectators mingle with the stars.

..actually the exact location for the Thursday's show is in Emeryville (EBA), which is on the other side, north, of Menlo Park (the original location at GGBC1/RBC)..
