    It does??? I wonder who posted that. Probably my assistant who is "sign" crazy. She post everywhere. ha ha. Will take that off pronto. You coming today Crisp? Wouldn't be the same without you dropping by and playing ALL day...as usual. I will have to hurry our snack bar so you will have something to eat. I worry your Mom will see a too-skinny you and wonder what GGBC did to you. C ya later...

    Congrats Sally!

    Hi Sally,

    This is speed78, we met in Vancouver and played at Van Racquet's Club a couple of years back. ("Mr" speed78 drove u to buy shoes not sure if you remember) - When u came back to visit last year we were unfortunately out of town so we missed you then. We're very happy to hear that you've started such a cool club in SF. Congrats!! Hopefully we'll get to come visit your club in SF soon?

    PS Thanks for your autographed CD from your friends JK and FF~ it was goooood!

    YES, there is a huge water fountain, in fact 2 of them ON the court, in the shape of a vending machine costing $1.00 for MANY GULPS of water. We also sell different flavors of vitasoy, gatorade, and fresh orange juice as well as apples and bananas in the pro shop. We will soon have yummy fresh sandwiches and snacks from a resturant called Loo Yu Shuan and Broadway Bistro. We may have some chinese buns too. We will get a menu we can choose from. We had some food tasting the other day and had some fresh fruit, some chinese salads with peanut sauce dressing and an assortment of quite delicious sandwiches. These people also cater to Singapore airlines First class lounge. The first day they sent some, the staff ate it all. By the way, we have a wonderful kid's room now if anyone is worried about kids running around. Now all the kids stay in there! I'm preparing to get a little play pen or crib for little kids if I can fit anything else in that room.

    Final Match

    :)
    It was a back to back game for us, but after finish playing six matches, me and my partner was so tired. We can't even move an inch, but we have a wonderful time playing with the diva and GGBC coach. She suprised me with alot her shot, and about five shot she hit the bird right on the line. I just looked at the bird and looked at her ,"Yes, is right on the line:eek: ". The coach from GGBC also make alot of amazing great shot that fake me and my partner out. Over all they gave us a very good game and we have alot of fun craking joke while we play. I am looking for a future rematch with Sally and Coach (Gin jong), don't remeber the name.:D

    I think you need to brush up on queuing theory.

    The method you describe is both simple and [font=&quot]antediluvian[/font].

    pics!

    here are the pics i took in the afternoon of the opening day. it was overwhelmingly crowded so i only ended up with a few shots here and there.

    somebody must have pics of the morning festivities which i missed.

    Sally, i will make a CD of all the pics i took and bring it to GGBC next time i visit.

    cheers..

    BIg Word

    Wow, Mr. Croomer, your word was so big, I had to look it up in the Dictionary! Some of the oldest ways are the simplest and best. It's called "going back to basics". Maybe if you come to GGBC you can try it sometime. The point is to get people on the court in a timely and fair fashion. Whatever method works right? That's why retro and vintage is so popular these days too!

    Hey, we had tons of fun too! I lost my doubles match today :crying: but did you see Ben Lee and Jinsongs match with Chris Hale and Stanley Wu? It was so exciting, I couldn't bare to watch! But Ben and Jinsong won! Come to GGBC and we'll play you two again! This time we'll both get enough rest first!

    Lounge Area

    Our Lounge area upstairs is for party bookings or people who just want to rest from badminton and don't need to do that on a crowded court. They can go up there and read magazines, watch TV, listen to music or eat if they like (but they have to clean up after themselves). We are not serving food up there, but we will sell the food in the pro shop and you can bring it up there. I think Kwun took some photos of the upstairs lounge area last time. Its a nice quiet place to just hang out for awhile. We will have internet connect up there soon.

    Your welcome for the cliff bar Crispy. You are there sooooo long, I'm afraid if you don't eat something you'll pass out! U see... the lounge area is for people like you that stay around GGBC all day!
