    It's near the end of Feb now, anyone know if they are near completion? Im glad that they're opening a badminton facility in Milpitas because the BBC here doesnt not have nearly enough courts for the amount of people that come in during the weekend or on Fridays.

    or any day of the week for that matter.

    i am going to meet up with Phu/Stella today in the new Bintang. they have been putting up the courts and i was also told they are almost done. they had some delay in the construction here and there.

    i asked and understandably they don't want to commit to a fixed date in case there are more delays. but i would guess that if it were not Feb it should definitely be March.

    the bathroom structure is still being worked on. the courts mats are pretty much done, the custom made standards are done (and very nice!), they have to lay the between court carpet which should only take a day to complete.

    the lighting is awesome. very very bright. the under-layer of the court is suspended wood, same as Bintang SSF, i have jumped on it and it is nice and soft to the knees. (though it is stiffer than Campbell which some people claim is too soft).

    there are 5 rows of courts, the middle 3 rows have tons of sitting/resting space in between, and the side 2 rows are relatively more cramped.

    Phu & Stella says they are aiming for end of March.

    i guess at least now that we have more definite date, the opening should be imminent.

    finally!
