Kanata Badminton Club 2014 AGM

Traditionally, the Kanata Badminton Club’s Annual General Meeting has been held in Tommy’s restaurant at the old town center. This year, the meeting had to be delayed a couple of months while renovations at the restaurant were underway. Happily, the renovations were finally completed and we could have our meeting.

As a club with about 140 members, the club operates during the winter months utilizing the facilities of two local schools in Kanata, Ontario. Since the City of Kanata amalgamated into the City of Ottawa a few things changed but the Kanata Badminton Club still operates much the same as it did many years ago when I first became a member. Over the years, my ability to see the bird has diminished somewhat and, with each passing year, the entry players seem to be a bit younger :-).  It’s a community based recreational club and it’s still a fun way to survive the winter months.

Kanata Badminton Club Executive 2014 – 2015

This year’s executive should have an easy year as usual even though it will once again be a year with some changes :-). Maybe, my play will improve and I’ll be moved back to the competitive red level again!

2012 Kanata Badminton Club Annual General Meeting

It is almost the end of another successful season for the members and executive of the Kanata Badminton Club and that means that it is time for another annual general meeting. The KBC is a recreational badminton club which has about 140 members. Three local area schools are used by this club which provides organized badminton five nights a week during winter months. I have been a member of the club for quite a few years and am one of the older members but still enjoy winning a game or two especially on a good night against some of the younger members (40 y.o.’s). I am finding it a bit more difficult to keep up with the 20 y.o.’s so I let them do more of the running when they are my partners :-).

Tonight’s event was once again held at Tommy’s Dining Lounge and was well attended. I arrived a bit late and had to fight for a seat. The club’s President, Daoxing, was already well along in his review of the past year and was giving recognition and thanks to the club’s members and executive for their help in making it a good year. For the club, it was a bit of a transition year as membership increased and the club added a third school gym to its available mix of locations.

Kanata Badminton Club – Y/E Banquet and AGM

May 3rd, 2011 No comments

Once again this year, I had the enjoyment of playing an MC type of role for the Kanata Badminton Club banquet and AGM. We had a really good turn out this year with lots of pizza and wings and assorted other foods consumed while speeches were being made and trophies and awards were being handed out.

Being early has its advantages. You get to pick the seat you want and you get to be in my test shots :-).
