OPEN EVENT: April 23 th and 24th (Sat/Sun), 2016 - Strathmore, Alberta

Strathmore  high school.

Think we have firmly established that this is the house that bonkers badminton built. Yes we are lunacy side of sports and you keep coming back --- 17 years. There are kids that played this event many moons ago that now play masters events. Calvin, against all odds has stayed alive and not died at this event. Not that I am old... hey quit looking at the gray hair at my temples... that from having teengers not this event

Every year is an adventure - and usually involves warm weather followed by snow. Uhm... to you new people ... wish I was kidding. Its eerie how we will be BBQ in shorts saturday night - then by 10 pm is blizzard of epic proportions. But like jason from the friday the 13th films (any resemblance to the tournament director is pure concidence... maybe) we will not die! Give us out freedom or give us.... oops wait wrong movie moment.

Yes, we've been staging this lunacy for that long. 
Uhm, okay, lunacy might be a slight understatement. This is lunacy with it's own theme music and color scheme....
This is the zone for COLORS

The fundamental principle of this tournament from year one has been to allow rural based players in southern Alberta the opportunity to experience an open style event with feather shuttles and the opportunity to interact with elite players by staging an event "in their own backyard".
It is also to let everyone have a whacked out fun time time and offer up something somewhat unique:
TEAM tournament.
FOR MONEY. Real Cash. or in the immortal words of Conker: Sponduli!!!
