    VRC (Vancouver Racquets Club) is a badminton/squash club with fitness centre, pro shop, and restaurant. I've been on the waiting list since last Oct :D

    What you see there is the door key, shoe tag, and parking sticker.

    Thanks Dave...

    ...now I can copy the tag and put it on my shoe. Duplicating the metal card key is a little more complicated.

    :D :D

    Let's flip through the VRC Rules & Guideline ... *flip* *flip* *thumb* *point* AHHHHH ...

    3.5.3.61 Thou shalt not allow Winex affiliates to copy thine shoe tag ...

    Sorry WWC, can't let you do that.

    Thanks cappy75! Have to shake off my flu bug first :(

    Lady in the office says my key won't work till May 1st ... I may just take the opportunity to get my strength back and skip Saturday for this week :)

    I'll probably visit the gym though maybe Sunday.

    You can always use your electronic pass at 12:01am Sunday!

    I'll bet, even if the door was open, you would let it shut, flip out your pass from your pocket like a gun-slinger at the OK-Corral!!!

    *oooo OOOOO oooooo waaa WAAA waaaaaa* (theme song from The Good, Bad & The Ugly)

    The rusty gym doors at local VRC saloon are blasted open by a gust wind. All the Badders inside quickly dropped their rallies and stared at the one and only exit out of this shuttle-ridden saloon, and all the while, standing there shaking & shivering like they've just downed 3 bottles of their local firewater (remember Cappy75) :rolleyes:

    As the broken feathers clear, a veteran racquet-slinger, wearing the latest CAB-shooter strapped to his shoulder, stops at the door, slowly scans the entire gym from left to right. He takes a sniff of the air, chuckles and smirks as he walks towards the center of the gym, for he senses mass hysteria & fear.

    Badders waiting to get on the court, scamper aside like cockroaches caught with the lights on. Some quickly take their racquets off the sign-up rack in fear of the stranger wanting to add his shooter onto their foursome, while others offer new shuttles to the veteran racquet-slinger as a bribe in hopes he will not force his ways onto their games.

    (to be continued...)

    Ha-ha. You remember Indiana Jones (forgot which one). This one dude did this fancy routing with a sword for about a couple minutes. Jones just took out his gun and shoots him.

    I'll bet a huge percentage of VRC players'll do that to me!

    Alright guys ... I'll try. I'm still recovering from the flu, so I'll be at 40%. THAT MEANS I stay at the centre-T and everyone else who partners me wil have to take ENTIRE back-court, and mid, if I have to take a step. :D
