    Ooops!! :eek: Sorry, I thought I'd figured out the average age of Calgary badminton players since my Sunday visit at YMCA! :p

    No worries, I'm sure at my level of footwork, you can outrun me with your cane! :D

    Cooler, it's very nice meeting you last night but you forgot to bring your cane!! :D

    Definitely my games last night wouldn't be as much fun without you in my doubles game. :)

    My feather birds were flying real fast in that "air tight" gym and I couldn't use any of mine. I could tell I was breathing out more oxygen than what I breath in !! :eek:

    WWC, the way I'd put it is "I thought Cooler is at around the same age as Badrad".......I still want to survive at VRC!! :p :D

    Too bad, I didn't bring a camera. Otherwise you would have seen how relaxed Cooler was playing against my double partner and me! ;)

    Great to meet you too Kitty. I guess it's your first time to sample some of our low calorie Calgary Lite 'air' over here. :) Yah, it would make you feel like breathing out more than breathing in :p My cane? LOL, it's in my gym bag. I bring it out only if I've gotten bruised and beaten bad on some off nights.

    I manage to get back my tube of AS-20 after the session. One person 'unintentionally' took my 'full' tube for his/her empty tube (well, 1 used shuttle left). I missed some shots because I was scanning the gym for my missing tube of shuttle. We still manage to beat them pretty good tho :)

    cooler, are you bald? I'm just asking because there are regulars at the U of C who can play fairly well. And they're bald, haha...(One of them kinda scares me though...)

    Action Man, I can guarantee you Cooler has even more hair than I do (my hairdresser complained his fingers sore after doing my hair), UNLESS he's wearing a wig....not possible cause his wig will fall off when he jumps around!?! :p :D :D

    Hahaha, i must have overlooked this thread.
    That semi bald guy likely be the 5'10" indian guy, he was professionally trained back in India. He's quite good, much better than me i may add. He can do backhand corner to corner even when the shuttle drop to his waist/thigh level.

    About my hair, hehe, it was cut 1.5 weeks ago at the time i met kitty.
    (or i have a set of wigs with various length that i rotate wearing them weekly ;) )

    Hahaha this reminds me about that accident I had at the barber shop about a month ago, I had my hair comepletely shaved off (kinda looked like this: :) , not a very pretty sight!)

    Oh, and that guy can pull off some pretty amazing shots...Makes me wanna play more often...So, do you guys have coaches? I used to have one, until the club disbanded and he took all my money :( . He said he used to be coach back in China (Kinda vague, I know...)
