I can post some, but I don't own a DSLR so the pics are going to be crappy. Too bad ctjcad won't be there tonight.

..so, this is what i heard (from a friend who was there):
- It was a wall-to-wall, packed house. With almost no inch spared...
- They had to use several parking spaces from next door businesses because there were so many cars...
- They rented this high, bleacher seatings, and put them around the playing court
- They had catering food served (what they served, that we have to wait for the pics)
..too bad i missed it but can't wait to see the pics and videos..

I've uploaded the pictures to an album. I set it to public so you should be able to access it. Sorry for the reverse order, I arranged it ascending but it is ordering it descending :S so you'll need to go through the pictures backwards....
I'll post a summary of the event tomorrow, time for bed now....

photos by Bubbles
couldn't take pics of the food, they were covered but it was nice decco, I forgot to take pictures of that, line was moving. Also I have to say since I was one of the later people to arrive thanks to my work, I couldn't get a good seat to take pictures from both sides. ABC management was making it hard for me since I didn't ask earlier in advance and didn't ask Chris to clear it with them :_(, no press pass no access :_(. William one of the managers later did gimme some space to take photos but oh well I made due already. My experience in this was a bit negative but I'm glad the photos came out palatable?

the event really didnt afford any good opportunity to get autographs or pictures with LD or BCL ( unless you are a volunteer or have VIP status). i even had a little laugh when i saw a guy trying to get an autograph from LD being shoved away by an organizer wearing a white polo shirt- i told my friend sitting beside me "thats what you get for wearing a yonex shirt" and we both laughed.
cant understand much from the program- it was in cantonese or mandarin. maybe because 95% of the crowd were chinese
i hope the people at menlo park get a better experience for their $20 and at least get a reasonablel opportunity to get close to their favorite players. i estimate the crowd to be about 300. maybe a little more or less.
but no doubt about it LD and BCL really enjoyed this experience as much as the crowd enjoyed it.
