    Unfortunately, I will be away to Shanghai during this weekend. I think Hau-Ge is also in Solo.

    Please read properly.. for HONG KONG BC MEMBERS. Of course on the 18th will be too early for the International BC Members to go to HK since Hong Kong Open has not even started yet.

    to clarify, of course any BC members from anywhere in the world are welcomed to join us! :D

    it may be worthwhile to have a lunch gathering the Monday of the HK open if there is enough interests. please let us know if you are interested...

    I don't understand why the proposed gathering will be on Nov 18.:confused: That will be the finals of the China Master 2. I think most of the members in Hongkong will either be watching the games at Guangzhou or the live telecast. I believe it will be advisable to have the gathering during the Hongkong Open week. Maybe attendance will be higher if we do it Saturday night after the semi-finals. Just a suggestion. :)

    Contrary to what I've indicated in the other thread about HK Open badminton opening, I won't be able to make it to this gathering :(. It's too bad that I won't be able to meet up with more badminton forum members from HK or all over the world this ocassion, but I hope to meet up with more of you at a later date.

    If luck permits, I hope I'll bump into you while watching the HK Open. I haven't bought my ticket yet, but I'm thinking about watching some games on day 2 or day 3. It's likely tickets for the games before the quarter finals will be easy to get, right?

    Just my 2 cents-Hmm, looks like..

    ..kwun might have to plan for a multi get-together this time, just to get all of the BC people in town...:p:confused:..
    ..hmm, i would somewhat concur to that idea (eventhough i won't be there). Since I know kwun & family will leave HK on the last Wednesday of the month (28th), maybe the "better time" for you guys to do another get-together is on the Monday or Tuesday on the week of the HK Open, since the schedule on those days would be "quite light". Also after kwun & family come back from the China Open.
    *kwun's schedule: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46644&page=6 (post #97)
    **Btw, envy you guys for the get-together, esp. with BC paying the bill...hehe:p:D:eek:;)..Don't forget to take lots of pics, guys & share w/us!!:D:cool:

    Urrrrhhhh ... I've fallen in love with HK and had visited it twice in the last 12 months. Pity that I won't be able to make my third visit during HKO due to work commitment.
