    Update # 11

    OK, everything is confirmed, BC has courts # 8-10 reserved.

    When you enter, please go to the Pro Shop and pay for your entrance fee.

    Then proceed/meet at Courts 8-10. If there are people playing on the courts, kindly tell them that the courts are reserved for BC. There is a white reservation sheet posted on each court and Courts 8-10 are for "Dan Chien" (that's me) and BC. You do not need to wait for them to finish, from 10am-1pm, the courts are paid for and reserved for BC. If you feel uncomfortable asking, you can just go to the Pro Shop and ask whoever's there to help out. But it should be no problem. 99% of the time if you say, "Sorry, this courts reserved", people will step off the court. :)

    See you all soon, it'll be a great time. :D

    Here's an updated map:

    Update # 12

    First off, I will be able to make it to the GT after all. :D I will provide cold water and sports drinks so you won't need to purchase any drinks. :)

    Courts # 8-10 are reserved for BC.

    When you enter, please go to the Pro Shop and pay for your entrance fee.

    Then proceed/meet at Courts 8-10. I will have "last minute" (stickers) name badges for everyone on the list and bring extra blank ones for others attending that are not on the list.

    There will be no need to ask people to leave the courts because I will be doing the enforcing. :p

    See you all soon, it'll be a great time. :D

    it was an awesome day of badminton. i arrived around 20 mins late and everybody there already started their games. there are some pretty good players who attended. members from as far as Australia, Toronto, NYC, Boston, Vancouver, Vermont, Japan, France, Montreal attended the BC WC get together. there are also some nice members who attended not to play badminton but instead to just say hi to other members.

    there were some really good games played and the level of games were pretty high.

    also thanks to those who provided rides for other members, it really made a difference for those who came from abroad or from out of town.

    the most special mention is S4MadMan, who despite playing badminton until 6am the very same morning, he decided to attend the get together sharp at 10am, and even brought a truckload (literally) of gatorade and bottled water in an ice tub. not only that, he helped me tremendously by reserving and paying for the courts in advanced, today he even prepared name tags for RSVP'ed members !!! and on top of that, he is such a nice and friendly guy. my hats off to S4MadMan.

    after the badminton session, a few of us went to a local Thai restaurant (the same one that ctjcad/Gunawan brought the INA team to) and we chowed down a lot of food.

    and thank you all for attending the get-together, it was awesome to be able to meet members and talk and chat about badminton. i had a great time today.

    Great Pics, Kwun. Reminds me of our BC gathering in Singapore last year. I see your banner is still in ship-shape condition!

    Wonder where it'll be next year? But come 2008, Olympics Beijing is beckoning! Surely, it'll be a good time to return to HK for a visit with friends and relatives. And it may yet be a bigger gathering by then, with the BC China and HK fraternity growing in size. Why, maybe our Vancouver and NY friends may be able to accompany you too. And maybe even James from UK as well. Nice time to meet up with Cheung, Taneepak, et all, with Beijing in the background. :)

    It's great to see our fellow members having a lot of fun (and good food :D ) all together. I can easily spot some faces from the group pic, as well as the BF shirt.

    Hope more pics are coming. ;)
