    I'll be in Calgary around May 18 and I'm wondering if anyone can provide more info about this demonstration game. Do we need to purchase tickets for this event and how much? Where can we buy the tickets? Why is it a 4 days event? How are the seats classified? Is filming allowed? Oh, btw, will Ardy Wiranta be playing in this demo game? Thanks! :)

    Good question Dex, I thought I would revive this thread seeing as I will be back in the city...

    Hey Dex, care to meet up to play a few rounds?

    Perhaps Eggroll, might have some more information for us about this demonstration/tournament...

    I'll be back in Calgary tomorrow night, and will be calling the Talisman centre, to get some more info for you, I'll post it once I get the details.

    Update...

    Well...

    I did some calling, and also looked at the poster for this event.

    Apparently there will be some sort of grand prize money to attract some of the international pros to this event.

    It is now being held on June 02-05, at the Talisman Centre.

    I'll have to check out the poster again to see if I missed anything else.

    here is a link to a thread which regards this "tournament".

    http://www.badmintonforum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=13073

    From what i saw on a poster, it's roughly $500 for all 4 days for a group or people (not sure how many) - this is a "Gold Pack". As for single tickets, I heard from someone that it's roughly $15-$20 (this might be incorrect).

    btw dex, i believe ardy w. is playing.

    Thanks Yonexfan,

    I think I will just ask the club for a poster tomorrow, cause it looked pretty cool :p plus I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to badminton paraphernalia, and also since I'm scoping out the festivities at the nationals :p

    I do have to admit though, and this is getting off topic here...
    The level of competition has been going up, with our young ones in the country, and this is very good to see. :)

    A big congrats, and thank you to all those who participate in the sport, and also to promote badminton, you're doing a wonderful job of developing our youths.

    -Kelvin
    PS: Next Stop after Revolution Cup, plan trip for Vancouver, for World Juniors :D

    No probs.

    It's too bad I live in Edmonton and not in Calgary. It would make it a lot more easier to attend the badminton revolution event if I lived in the 403 :D.

    I know a few friends attending the last few days of the event, unfortunately that's the date of my grad so I'm unable to go with them.

    If any of you guys go, tell me how it goes.

    CH is not playing so no one will get a chance to see their matchup.

    But, darnit, this tourney is held at the worst possible time since I really wanted to watch. Oh well, all the Calgary Bfers, plz tell us how it goes and some pics would be nice!

    1-3 p.m or 6-9p.m

    I recently got a ticket for The Badminton Revolution Cup and is confused about the time my ticket is scheduled for. Below the date, it says from 1-3p.m and 6-9p.m. Does that mean my ticket is valid for both of these ranges or just for the selected time i decide to go to?

    well i went to see the first nite.
    Kenneth Jonasson totally owns our canadian MS. He is good plus that he just came off TC so his body is still in tune. I think KJ will take the MS title here. My ranking of canadian MS is still intact, our best MS is just A-. In my Pro, A and A-, etc ranking system, Pro should and did own the A-'s.

    Saw the ardy against peter ramussen. Ardy loss in 3 games. Ardy still have his skills but i could see him running out of gas. Ardy came close wrapping up the match on the second game but i think he was gassing out at around point 13. Just couldn't bury peter. Peter was super fit. He play all 3 games with equal speed and stamina with no let up in pace; lots of running and jumpsmashing. Deep angled smash near the lines where peter got most of the point from Ardy. Ardy prolly smashed about 4 times in all 3 games to conserve energy. Ardy focused mainly of tight net shots and defense were his strength against peter. Ardy caught and returned many of peter net kills and made peter hopelessly running back to retrieve the shuttle with no avail of course. Kenneth came out to give peter some pointer in between games, prolly telling peter ' just do more jumpsmashing' :D

    Also watch marlvene mainaky against a 2nd tier danish guy. No problem for Marlvene.

    watch an exhibition MD too where halim heryanto pair up with a local player against a ex danish MD pairing up with a local player as well. Halim, of course, is great to watch.

    I didnt go watch on thursday, flames was playing that nite. :D

    i got tickets for the finals on saturday so i'll be heading down to calgary to catch the action. it should be pretty good. i too also think that Kenneth Jonasson will be the winner, just by looking at the results and knowing the level he's at right now.

    Well i think Ardy is too old for that.. but thumbs up for him , for playing in the tourney. At least now he can gauge himself. I also saw Misbun Sidek play against some of the Msian National Teams. He can still take the first Set
    ( very seldom ) , but after that No GAS. Maybe the players were giving him chance. hehehe
