    Try to make sure the group are sitting opposite the main cameras. Otherwise we won't get any good views of everybody!

    Can't you just sneak out and join us having fun, especially on Sat and Sun afternoons when you have no exams. More so if you live just across the causeway in JB. :p

    First Few BFers Arrive

    Explorer123 (Kit) and wife, Fiona, arrived late Friday evening from Christchurch, NZ and Kong-19 (Chan) from Brisbane, Australia, touched down early Sat morning, all geared up to watch the Aviva Open Singapore 2004 and to play as many badminton games as possible. They all bought early bird season passes.

    Kit and Fiona was unable to join me for my usual sessions with my Sunday group, but Chan came by to join us at Bukit Gombak Sports Hall from 4-7 pm. Two other BFers were also with us, Davidoff2005 and Mongoose.

    The following pic shows from L to R, yours truly, Davidoff2005, Chan and Mongoose. Do expect more pics when Kwun comes along with his new digital camera. :)

    I've been to a number of such events in Singapore and normally, it's camera allowed but no flash, please. However, camera flashes remain a big problem due to a number of idiots. So maybe, this time they will be strict.

    I think it's crazy to ban cameras!!! We are there to support our fav players leh! And being fans, fans will always want to take some photos mah!If they really ban camera, next yr I will boycott the event!

    And as for the yonex discount booth there, has some reservation abt it, last yr the booth was offering a 15-20% discount off retail price ... and still much more expensive than bras basah!!! So ... those who want to buy rackets can just make a trip over to bras basah during the lunch break!! :)

    Glad to confirm that I will be there for at least 4 days, 18-21 nov! 17th very likely also unless work commitment cannot allow me to take leave. Will be there with some of the ebadminton kakis! :)

    Good show, PoseidonLee - I've been waiting for your response. But you did not confirm your participation for the Fun Games at Bedok SH on Sat morning, 20 Nov. We look forward to seeing you and your e-kakis, esp. Jeffreyk! :D

    Will be at the semis and finals

    Just bought my tickets for the semis and finals.

    Got the North entrance, queried the sistic person if whether can choose entrance, she says cannot. So, from North entrance, can only go to the north seats, correct? Looking forward to meeting kwun, the supreme BF administrator :D

    Regards

    Spotted some Hong Kong players helping themselves to our local food at Marine Parade Hawker Centre last night. Realised they were badminton players as one of the players was wearing a yonex polo with the name "Wong M C, Hong Kong" on her back. Was quite amused at the amount of food they ordered :eek: I thought professional badminton players had strict diets :)

    Does anybody know which is the designated official hotel for all players? Would love to catch a glimpse of my favourite players and get their autographs :D
