Yes, I can. Let us aim for end of April/May. Maybe we can put one together along with Sakura. Where is your club? can you send me your email or email me at info@firstname.lastname@example.org . What level are your players at and what age group. There seem to be a lot of interest in friendlies. I will approach my Board of Directors to see if I can reserve some courts at MDHS from 4 pm to 7 pm (we have 9 over there) starting in May to middle of june for friendlies with other clubs and continue to play between clubs every week for 6 weeks.

I have spoken to Councillor Don Hamilton and Deputy Mayor Jack Heath today. They support badminton 100% and they are doing everything in the background to secure the badminton facility for us. I have ask Badminton Canada to contact PAN AM to ensure that they need to stick by the orignial plan. I am in communication with PAN AM program venue director and he ensure me that they will stick by the original plan. I will be taking a week off work next week to meet and address council and work with PAN AM to deal with this situation. I will post communication, between PAN AM, Council and MBC on www.markhambadminton,con to keep you all intereste party inform of relevant communication.
MS Lee comment surprise me. I am a little bit disappointed that a club of her stature which produce the number 1 female badminton player (Michelle Li) in Canada would NOT support Badminton in the community. I have not spoken to her yet, so I do not know why she said what she said.

The Town resolution is that if PAN AM rejects the 2 pools proposal, they will have to go back to One Pool and one Badminton facility. We have been working the background and I just got email from the CEO of Pan AM today that they will not accept the 2 pools proposal from Markham. The Council has no choice but to go back to the one pool and on badminton facility plan. They could come up with another resolution. I have met with Deputy Mayor Jack Heath, Jim Jones, and Don Hamilton to explain our position and why PAN AM for Badminton is important to Markham. I am meeting councillor Alex Chiu tomorrow. Meeting with regional councillors Joe Li and Councillor Alan Ho on Friday...will keep everyone posted.

Way to go MBCLLAP!! At least we can see the light of a big picture of having an international badminton facility for the local communities; every badminton lovers should unite to back up MBCLLAP's passion towards the goal!!

Yes, you can join. The league is open to all members of the badminton community. You just have to make up a name for your group of friends. Call it ABC (just kidding, don't call it that. There are 2 clubs out there with this name already, Adult Badminton Club and Aurora Badminton Club).
The final propose plan will be made public by approximately the middle of July, 2010. We have a detail draft document on how the league will be run. We did have an open meeting for feedback on Jan 30, 2011. We have not incorporated all the feedback into this document yet. I can post this document (approx 90% correct) if somebody can tell me how to add an attachment to thsi forum, or if you send me your email address at email@example.com , I can send you the document.
