Topic: A few things

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Original Message Posted: Mar 3 2015 2:44AM

Ni hao,

1) One of my buddies from China is in Van for a little while and I am sending him to Soho. Not sure who is playing there these days and when but he is hoping to find a game.

His name is Li Hao but he goes by "Rico". He is a friendly but quiet guy. Solid Rookie player looking to improve. I hope someone might go down for a game with him. He said he will try to go down on Tuesday and Wednesday.

2) I might be coming there in April for a few weeks. Will let you know once I book things.

3) Is anyone going to Vegas for HOFC Classic and wants to earn a quick fin? Please pick me up 10 Tornado balls and I will pay you back plus 10 bucks on top for your troubles.

Please let me know so I don't get more than one person buying for me.

Fred.. you could just purchase the balls from Canadian Amusement games in Vancouver?

Hey Fred. Hope to see you in town if you can make it. I'll be sure to check back here for updates.

I arrive on April the 20th. Give me a few days for jet lag then let me know who is up for a game and when.

I get to play for China at ITSF Worlds this year.

I was going to make the national teams jersey Johnny's velvet Bruce Lee shirt but I didn't want to be looking too cool as the Canada jerseys suck...

I will try to take a pic of me in a China jersey and Sean Lee in a Canada jersey...

Cheers MoFos,

PS Shake off the cobwebs Slow and Timmy. Time to un-retire! Cai jian...

Thx Robert.

Jet lagged but considering 12 Kings tonight. Anyone else in?

Rico, Rico Rico. I like that.

Hey Fred, Earl sent me this way. I'd be happy to come down some night, but couldn't stay very late unless it's a weekend night.

Hey Fred,
I can make it downtown on probably any night (or two). It looks like a weekend night would be best for both Slow & Tim. Tim's out of town till Thursday. I haven't contacted Gerry yet (I only have old email & haven't tried calling yet) I'm sure one of us can track him down.
Keep us posted here, I guess.

See you soon, Earl

I am thinking of going to Soho on Friday and Sunday. I might also be tempted on Wednesday if Johnny boy offers up a formal challenge. I had a great time last night at 12 Kings. Great job there Cam and Dylan. I will try to go back there next Monday.

I am calling this Friday the Freddy's Friday Funday. Lose a game and crawl under the table, sing a song, or tell a good joke. Trick shots count double and a free beer for the Ugliest shirt! Sunday will be a serious BYP Handicapped Doubles unless Pete is using Soho for a Beginners event. Let us know Pete!

The Freddy Open will be in a few weeks! Email me if you want to challenge the Pale Chinese guy in the meantime:

Gauntlet thrown and accepted.

Gauntlet cage matches tonight (Wednesday).

Fred's Fun Friday Foosball. Slow, Timmy, Earl, Robert, Harvey, Craig, you coming? Spread the word. We switch to dubs when the numbers make sense. Your wager is to offer up something if u lose for each match: a few bucks, a beer, crawl under, a great joke, sing, etc.

Sunday BYP Handicapped Dubs on Sunday starting at whatever the regular time is. Pete said this week Sunday play is fine.

Monday Regular Event at 12 Kings.

snake shot Clinic next week. Pete is picking a night.

All events at Soho except Monday of course.

Go Canucks Go. Flames Suck! Their 15 minutes is almost up...

Last night was lots of fun. Please spread the word for Friday and Sunday. Post if you are coming. The more that do will encourage others to come out.

I cant make it Friday night so Sunday for me, cheers!

Author: Slow. Period. Reply #15 Posted: Apr 23 2015 9:12PM

I'm ar Mac DeMarco Friday night but will try to come down afterward. I will try to make it Sunday as well

Author: van_can_foos Reply #16 Posted: Apr 24 2015 12:22AM

I'll be there both nights! Earl

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #17 Posted: Apr 24 2015 12:14PM

Cool. Tonight is the Friday fun event. Planning to taxi home!

Let's call this Sunday the Freddy Open. Since I was too cheap this time to bring stuff from China please bring some cool old junk for the prize table.

In a couple of weeks once I get the ok from Pete I want to have a Vancouver Championship event. Probably Swiss format singles on a Friday and Dubs on a Sunday. We run it seriously to see who is the top Pro, Semi and Am in town so all are invited. Give me feedback on the idea. Everything is flexible. Except Tim's fashion sense that is! ;)

Author: van_can_foos Reply #18 Posted: Apr 24 2015 7:36PM

Just spoke to Gerry - he's a bit busy with marking classes & submitting marks. He MIGHT be down tonight (late), but if not tonight will try for Sunday.

How long are you in town Fred?

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #19 Posted: Apr 24 2015 8:05PM

The plan is 3 more weeks...

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #20 Posted: Apr 25 2015 11:30AM

Thanks to all that showed up. Even the rusty old push kickers! ;)

Not sure where I will be tonight after the game but we will see. Suggestions?

Happy Birthday today by the way to young Mr. Robert Gingell.

Sunday night is the Freddy Open. Robbie and I are a lock for first but if you want to battle it out for second on down you are more than welcome to try. Please everyone bring some funny, silly broken down gift to donate to the prize table...


Craig, Mitch, Tim: Would be great to see you. We are expecting a Tielens, Shin, Lloyd and even a Gerry sighting. It should be fun.


Author: Superfly Reply #21 Posted: Apr 25 2015 5:02PM

"SUNDAY MAY 26" Should read APRIL 26 i'm assuming. That's some serious jet lag FredRock

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #22 Posted: Apr 25 2015 6:10PM

U said it bud. April it is.

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #23 Posted: Apr 26 2015 10:09AM

Roll call for tonight's Freddy Open?

I am playing with Robbie and am bringing at least one crappy gift for the prize table...

Author: van_can_foos Reply #24 Posted: Apr 26 2015 7:02PM

I'll be out, & will pick a partner once there. I'm also bringing a couple small items that I'm willing to part with.

I haven't spoken recently to Tim, Gerry or Pete T, but I hope they're following this discussion & will chime in.

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #25 Posted: Apr 27 2015 10:37AM

Thanks to all that attended. It was a lot of fun. Special thanks to Tuan and Robbie for partnering with me.

But now it is time for some serious foosball
