No names... I got schooled so bad by viver it wasn't even funny.
First group pic:
Back Row (L to R): wwcbro, Pete LSD, Edward (coach @RichmondPro), Leo (Viver's cousin), Cappy75
Front Row (L to R): wwc, Timeless, Richard (owner @RichmondPro), viver, Growler, TTT, Janet and Kwun
Madbad was the photographer hence not in pic (was in subsequent group pic).
Richard, Kwun, Madbad and ChiHo
There were others BC'ers who came up and introduced themselves to Kwun but didn't join our group as they were having lessons with one of the other RichmondPro coaches.
Again, a very big thanks to Richard and RichmondPro and obviously everyone who showed up (it was a fun night indeed).
..okay, can someone ID the folks?....i recognize the gentleman (in dark blue tee) standing next to Janet, but forgot. I also recognize Growler (the one in blue) sitting 5th from left..
Of course master Pete, 2nd from left, in the back.
I also notice kwun was wearing his soon-to-be-replaced SHB80W(?!)?...but i didn't notice any ill effect from the play..
Good fun and good videos! thanks for sharing!
It was a great pleasure to have the moderator and BF's founder and family at RichmondPro last night.
GrandMaster Kwun is in great badminton shape despite a hectic lifestyle and family occupation. Us, uncles with canes, need that inspiration . . .
Speak for yourself Pete, speak for your self
It was really a fun filled night. First, a big thank you to Richmond Pro, specially the boss Richard for sponsoring; Madbad for organizing this wonderful get-together and reporting with his great 'underwater' camera.
Badminton wise, don't think Kwun had a 'grinding' session, he is still in pretty good shape. Hope Kwun and family have fun and a great time in Vancouver.
Cappy75, you are just too nice playing at my speed. Need to get back into shape, should get a bit practice with you if you don't mind...
Thanks for the pics and vids.. looks like u guys had lots of fun there..
btw madbad, number 6 video sounds funny.. LOL.. who's the dude that ask the cameramen to shhh?
He went to the right place.. you organized a wrong party. Technically he didnt gate crash the party.
Glad to see that you guys had fun there. Deepest Darkest Secrets? Must be alot of Banning around the dinner.
..thank you for ID-ing the folks (missed your post)..
..too bad no video of madbad in action..i think he made kwun nervous in the beginning of Video #6..
I noticed there's one guy who looks like ants.
Perhaps, we can meet up on Wednesday night with WWC's group for extra practice .
I had a lot of fun, and it was very nice to hang with adults and get a workout . Seriously, it was great to see friends that I haven't seen in a long time, as well as get re-acquainted with BC'ers and make new friends. Thanks go out to Richmond Pro for graciously hosting the event. My first time there and it is a very nice facility.
Note to self, do not play with active BC members unless you've been active too. My entire body is SO FREAKIN' SORE from head to toe! LOL Apologies to all my partners that night, and thanks for carrying me .
What a night!
We came from vancouver and didn't have much trouble finding Richmond pro. The location was ina pretty busy area. We were promptly greeted by Pete LSD at the pArking lot. Haven't seen theguy for 4 years!
Got into rpro and chit chatted a bit with some bc members as well as the big boss Richard who immediately remindedme how I banned him from bc once!
Thanks to generosity of Richard, he had reserved 2 courts for the bc gathering. Both of which are fully utilized by bcmembers by the time I got there.
To be continued....
We arrived at the same time. What timing we had there!
Kudos to Brandon and Justin for self babysitting!
Special thanks to the BIG BOSS, Richard Ong of RichmondPro, for sponsoring this special event!
Pete, no one under 40 should be calling himself Uncle!
However, after watching madbad's only video clip of you playing, perhaps you are beginning to look a bit frail.
GrandMaster Fidget, this is the price to pay for a sedentary occupation. So no good :crying::crying::crying:.
Continuing my previous post (I was waiting in a long line at the canada/us border when I typed it but the linemoved and had to go).
The guys were already enjoying badminton when I got there so I just join some games. Brand and Justin were perfect as they were having fun running around and playing with each other. They managed to do that for 3 hrs until midnight which was quite amazing.
I unfortunately didn't get to play with everybody. I did managed to play with ChiHo who was my highschool teammate nearly 20yrs ago. He is still so good. I enjoyed the game so much as everyone played really well and were really good fun.
The late night snack was fun being able to chat badminton with old friends. Lots of badminton and bc gossips naturally. I think I could've go on for another few hours talking about badminton but the kids were already unconscious at that point.
Thanks again madbad for being such a good host and Richard for letting us play at rpro. And thanks madbad for taking photos that makes this event even more memorable
We just got into Seattle after a long day. Will post more when I get to a real computer
Thanks again for
Didn't realize you're visiting Seattle also. Maybe able to arrange a badminton session with some local players here, check your PM.

kwun serve to the net. madbad ask him go home, pull a string across the yard and start learn how to serve
"shhh..... dont let anyone see this video"
