No Badminton tonight, Tues. Feb 4th

Tonight is the first night of the second session of badminton at the Centre Hastings Badminton Club.

However, there will be no badminton tonight because the gym's lighting will be on/off intermittently while electricians try to fix the school's backup power system which has failed again.

See you on court Thursday


PS: You'll be emailed should the problem require Thursday's badminton to be cancelled.

January Badminton & Coaching

I hope you have had a good Christmas and are looking forward to playing badminton. Come out and burn off some of those holiday calories!

There will be two late starts in January:
-- on Tuesday, January 7th, our first night of play starts in the small gym at 7:30 PM with transfer to the large gym being possible at 8 PM (or sooner if we're lucky).
-- on Tuesday, January 14th, play starts in the small gym at 7:00 PM with transfer to the large gym being possible at 8 PM (or sooner if we're lucky).

Coaching: If you go to the club's website calendar (via http://madocbadminton.blogspot.com/) you will see that most play nights now show that 6 to 7 PM is available for coaching of junior players. The coaching is prearranged by the students with Henry Toews who is willing to coach adults on a prearranged basis too.  He can be contacted at 613-395-5798 and at henry.toews@yahoo.com.

Wishing you a happy new year and looking forward to seeing you on court,

Still no badminton

Badminton is again cancelled tonight! So much for assurances that badminton would be back to normal this week!

The maintenance people were unable to eliminate all of the problems with the back-up generator system. The entire school will be without power tonight in order to complete the repairs. I'll advise you one way or the other about the outcome in time for Thursday's badminton.

Fingers crossed,
