    Oh definitely! Are you a VRC member as well? Perhaps we have met before if you are:p. Despite being a summer member, I was fortunate to know lots of people there.

    What a fun night

    As usual, the 1 am-gang was there. From nowhere we popped up an idea of group training. Timeless was the master of the drill and we ran over court for the back court and drop shots. What a fun; we all laugh to death for those who missed the easy shots. Who the 1 am-gang last night?... Pete, Smashingbird, TTT, Speed78 and me.

    This wonderful place called VRC.

    Early this morning was great. Felt like I was in HK again. Next time we should do multi-shuttle drills.

    We were very gung ho about it too. Everyone was very serious and concentrated to do their best. The drills are the key to major improvement. Marky should improve a lot for the next couple of weeks.

    I'm sure you would have lead the pack if you were with us! ;) :D

    Kwun, next time you come to visit us, you should stay a week. I think your visit would reach a different level of camaraderie if you trained as well as played with us for a week! Kinda like a badminton exchange.:D :cool:

    sounds like a really cool thing to do. i will certainly be up for it! :)

    a week might be stretching it though. now i need to make sure when we visit, we find a place close to VRC. might get a ring from Peter at 1am asking me if i want to go do some drills... haha. :)

    Was it painful, cappy75? Being away for 4 WHOLE WEEKS away from VRC? :D

    Dude, PM me your regular weekly schedule for VRC and I'll see if I can fit that.

    Not as much until I get all the fabulous updates from timeless, made it worse for me:crying:. I was missing out, man! I will still hang out at Collingwood on Sundays to practice with 604Badder. Since Collingwood will be battleground for the Nov. tourney, I gotta habituate myself to the lay of the land;). Will also drop-in at Cameron on Mondays cuz a pal of mine is playing there and won't be back to VRC until May... so that means Wednesdays and Saturdays are official playing days and rest of the week for drills and weight training.

    Yeah, dude... let me know when you want to drop-in. BTW, you should try to join up. Full time membership is payable on a monthly basis... comes out to $60+ per month. I think you can afford that much for three times a week all-you-can-play:D.
