    Good stuff! Unfortunately mixed ladders' on thursday night, so you might not catch us at all:p. However, we might be able to meet up and chat if you can make it to Wednesday C2 drop-in with LoveJoy's group.

    Nah, not at all... you don't realise this but there's many others more who don't have plans for New Year's Eve. Then again, it's not entirely true that you have no plans... you'll be playing baddy with us til New Year's:p!

    I can see as the last 60 seconds count down...all the courts are filled.

    Players on each side of the court synchronize their clears to the beat of the clock with military precision.

    As we hit zero, a mass of used shuttles are hit into the air, champagne corks pop (along with gatorade tops and badminton shoes :rolleyes: ), and Auld Lang Syne fills the gym! :D LOL

    Cheers!
