did he survive to tell the story? haven't seen him log in for quite a few days...
Not bad for a first time feather player. Did lots of smart shots. It's unfortunate that he wasn't able to drop effectively. When I did a few overhead drills with him, he seems to slice his drops alot. I am sure his time at VRC will be well spent as he will be playing mixed on Sunday in a friendly tournament when he's back in Edmonton. mg27 will be leaving tomorrow so he might post later. Two days of baddy in VRC is more than a week of his regular drop-ins.
Hey Cappy75 et al:
I had a great time at VRC except for the last night that I couldn't play due to blisters on both my feet. Too much walking in crappy shoes. I'll remember the next time to bring shoes with thick insoles.
I have some pics and vid clips of cappy75 (I'll call him Godzilla of smashers) and Speedy78. Just have to figure out how to transfer the pics and vid clips to my computer first.
Vancouver was sure nice. It hardly rained. Visited White Rock (off-season), Fisherman's Wharf, walked along Robson Street a thousand times (looking for a place called Mondo Gelato), tried Stephos restaurant on Davies(I highly recommend it), sat on a bench and had a lunch along the beach of English Bay, walked through Gastown and Chinatown (Pender, Hastings, and some street called Carral (stay off this one).
I came back to Edmonton with a slight pulled muscle on my left side of my ribs. Couldn't smash last Friday and kept mis-hitting the shuttles (as I had to adjust playing from feathers back to nylons). I still managed to play in a fun (level doubles & mixed doubles)tournament in the city playing some mixed doubles . You get a t-shirt, door prize, and a lunch for $15.
Anyhow, I'm looking forward to my next trip. I still have some airmiles to use up or just waiting for a cheap seat sale.
Speedy78 was very outgoing and made me feel right at home. Oh yeah, don't let Cappy75 near any gelato place. He can't help himself, he's gotta have his 6 scoops of gelato in one sitting (that's probably where he gets his smashing power from).
Hopefully I can get the vid clips and pictures of my visit.
Dude! Shame on you for spilling the beans on the secret of my smashing powers:crying:!!! Glad to have you back home in one piece, homie! How goes the tourney? I am happy that you enjoyed your stay in town. Come on out next time!
I'm so glad to know that Vancouver made a strong impression on
your trip, cappy must your good friend....he did 99.9% and what Pete &
I had done was too small to be worth mentioning, each of us only 0.05%
, anyway you are welcome!
Hey, this is not fair. Your guys beat me up for a week (5-6 sessions?) and let him walk away with just 1?
Hardly rained? Lotusland rains a lot!!! Glad to meet you and hope you will be back soon for another torture sessions. Ha ha
Nah, don't get jealous LB. He drop-in for two nights. That's more hours playing than his entire month! Also, he did alot of his own sightseeing... mostly in downtown area. That's how he got his blisters.
hey LB - what can we say? we just luv you all that much more! you really think we unload that torture chamber stuff to just anyone? nah... you is our special frenz! matter of fact, your next visit will be to stay locked at the VRC the entire trip! bwahahahahaha!
Geezzzz.... that's how ur guys show the brother (and sister) love? At least, let me get a chance to get some food and take a short break.
Some pics at VRC during my visit a few weeks ago.
Hope this works.
Cool! The photos turned out great! VRC at it's most glorious moment... night time baddy!!!
I've been to VRC quite a few times, and never remembered to got my cam out... :crying:
Good Pic! I can clearly identify who is speed78.
HA! HA! Actually there are two photos for you already, I'll hand it to cappy
then he can mail it to you if he has your address.
Well, one more reason to come back and visit us!
Yeah, someone got dragged out of the parking lot before he could take a 30 minute shower . . . all for the good cause of early breakfast at ? . . . 2:00 AMish
Speed78 improved a lot lately due to lessons with Coach Ming (not Cappy75 ).
Next time LB, we will hire a camera crew .
Cuz if it were cappy75, nobody would notice any improvement.
Nah, cappy will just teach some other 'beneficial' stuff (like finding good restaurants to eat after badminton )
Heh! That's where you're wrong, FEND! That's Speed78's expertise there... she knows where to go for what food in the best restaurants in lower mainland. The lady is an encyclopedia of Asian culinary delights in our local area.
