Udall Closure – Saturday March 2, 2013

There will be no badminton on Saturday March 2 at the Udall Recreation Center, due to the Senior Olympics taking place

UA closure – no badminton

Unfortunately, there will be a basketball tournament all this weekend
(Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) in both the North and South Gym, so we
will not have any space or time to play.  Sorry for the relatively
short notice.  Now go out and have a life outside badminton.

Also, sign up for our tournament on 3/23!!  A reminder that it is
round-robin, so there are at least 3 games guaranteed, plus
snacks/fruit/Gatorade/shuttles/lunch will all be provided with the
fee.  Go to our website at www.uazbadminton.com for more info or to
find the registration form.

Arizona Senior Olympics Banquet

arizona senior olympicsIf you are going to attend the AZ Sr. Olympics Badminton Tournament on March 2nd and 3rd 2013, please note that we are going to have our banquet 6:30PM Saturday evening at:

Hibachi Super Buffet
4629 E Speedway Blvd.
(NW corner of Speedway and Swan)

Hibachi Super Buffet is an upscale Asian/Hibachi buffet restaurant with a new modern look. We will have our own private room and their selection of food is remarkable with over 250 items prepared fresh every day. They have oysters, whole fish, salmon, shrimp (coconut and bacon wrapped to name just two), pork, beef and chicken dishes and a full Mongolian style buffet where you pick out your food and have it cooked to order. There are lots of vegetables and fresh fruit and many choices of deserts. We held the TBC annual meeting there just last week and everyone came away impressed. Soft drinks are included and it’s all inclusive for $14.00. Of course alcoholic beverages are available at additional charge.
