    Ha Hah, XtC-604 & Azn_123 you guys missed a good Drop-flight ABCD Singles tournament with Takamsda, myself, another strong player, the Youth Coordinator, and a group of the weaker regulars.

    Unfortunately, Shtevit showed up late and the tournament was already in progress, but he was able to get a few singles matches against Takamsda!

    When Shtevit asked to borrow a racquet, I knew right away it was him on the previous post! :p Welcome to "Hongcouver", badminton central of British Columbia! :D

    Shtevit is visiting from Alberta and wants to play as much as he can (and be tortured) while he's here until the end of June.

    I referred him to various places where he can play more competitive games and I'm hoping the VRC gang (*wink wink nudge nudge* Pete LSD & Wood_22_Chuck) will invite him to their home, as soon as his baddie gear shows-up on Friday/tomorrow! :crying: :D

    Additionally, I would like to send Shtevit to Richmond Pro, Yumo, Clear 1/2 but I do not know who goes there regularly and is open to some fresh meat, *ahem* I mean a new face into their group. :rolleyes:

    Forgot to add, Takamsda was such a gracious host to take Shtevit to PineTree...how was the play there?

    Cheers!

    Come to VRC :D ... 9:30 pm Saturday nights is when everybody can stay a bit longer as there's no work the next day, and we usually go out for a late-night snack after.

    PM for my cellphone so I can meet you at the door.

    Yah.... It came to my surprise that some young kid beat me 21-17... gosh.. I'm getting old and slow.....

    I took shtevit to Pinetree on Thursday night, and provided the best match possible. and tonite we head to Yumo for late night badminton. We also had a crazy match against ex-langara player.... I got my butt kicked. LOL

    and shtevit is defiantely better than me.

    We normally play from 9:30pm till about 1 am, then head out for something to eat.

    The guest passes actually are good for 24 hours.
