    Ay Caramba! Missed out a few other familiar VRC-BF'ers...

    The 15Loves: Friendly and always accommodating Mr and Mrs 15Love. They have two of the nicest smiles in the club, they are perfect blends of charm and skills. Wonders to behold both on and off the courts, I can only imagine how good and lovely a badminton player their daughter will be when she grows up. Mr. 15Love is probably one of the best BF badder I have met yet. I could only consider myself good when I can keep up with him in a singles game. Trust me, it won't be any time soon:rolleyes:.

    richho: All-round nice guy who's ever patient with my mistakes whenever I partnered with him. Richho doesn't play as much as the other members but he can give a good game when he's on. Do watch out for his deadly cross-court drops:p.

    Are you coming back in November? We are waiting! Oh, I personally witnessed TTT's improvement last night. It was amazing. Your coaching made a world of difference. He smashed continuous during one sesson without pumping one into the net. Now, that's a record. :D

    Man, good times always fly by faster than we expected. I think I know exactly the feeling, when i was on my way home from van...

    Seems the masters are still in perfect shape, while the others having great improvement. Wondering how I am going to survive when I visit again... :crying:

    Cappy75,

    So good that i am still remembered..haha.joking.

    Actually you make me headache when i play against you ,for you are left handed. I always keep in mind to avoid attacking your forehand.You know it is quite hard to do that.I have to think it over before i return the bird,otherwise i will collapse if i am nailed by your strong forehand smash. :eek:

    ya,there is lots of fun partnering with you.I make mistakes too and thank you for your generousity and tolerance. :)

    My cross court drops is not that good as you describe.That's my only weapon ,for my smash and backhand suck.Too bad my cross court drops don't work anymore now becoz speed78 knows wherever i drops.Gees :D

    Looking forward to seeing you in VRC soon!

    Richho

    Great stuff, TTT... keep it up, man:)!

    You should have told me you were a fan. Could have gotten you an autograph or something. I've seen her quite a few times over the past couple years. She's a big badminton fan and comes to play at the club everytime she's in town for a concert.

    I was on Wed. night session and when I left the club at 1:30 am, Ms. Sally was still there. She must have big fun of and enjoy the games. In the last few games, she partnered with Steve (well, Steve did all the amazing back court running) against Brian and Phobe. For all local BFers who absented that night, you missed the chance of asking autograph :)

    I concentrated on what I was doing when practicing, and basically filtered out what was going on in the other courts. Oh well, I am not really a big fan of her anyways.

    If Kelly Chen comes along...then...*drool* it's a different story. :D

    Sally Yeh (or Yip) is from Taiwan originally. She's a pop-singer/actress. I have only saw one of her movies though, "Peking Opera Blues". It's cool to know about her passion for badminton. Yeah, one gets to bump shoulders with HK or Hollywood celebrities on a regular basis in Vancouver.

    Sally is a baddie manic just like the rest of the 1 am VRC gang. She doesn't have the big power and fast speed you see from Brain, but her anticipation and positioning are very good. I didn't recognize her at first until speed78 pointed out. Anyone know if how long Sally will stay in town? I am going tonight for group baddie.

    Brain (just back from training in Guangzhou) simply outpower Steve, so the outcome is expected.
