Rapheal Sachetat ("Raphy"), Badzine's chief editor, who has been a BC member for a long time, narrates his impressions of this year's Singapore Open. Yes indeed one can't miss his presence and his camera at many of the SOs. You may find his account interesting as he is well-travelled and has been to many other top-class badminton tournaments around the world. This is the link: http://www.badzine.info/content/view/1140/2/ Raphy also describes Badzine's plans to welcome badminton fans from all over the world to this year's French Open from October 28 to November 2. An attempt to bring badminton lovers together to sample French living and culture. This worthwhile project organized by Badzine should be supported by badminton fans who can make it during that period, especially those who are from Asia.
