This year's tournament organizing team consisted Eugene Lee, Stone Huang, Vu Dao, Mike Tran, Corey Hum,Sally Liang, Shirley Huang, Alan Fok and myself. Our umpires were Fei Tam, Alan Fok, and Min Zhao. Our volunteers were: Chinue De La Merced, Mervyn Hann, Giulian De La Merced, Lucie Zhao, Nikki Yin, Amish Servansing, Darshani Amarakoon, Sue Patel, Renu Tyagi, Aswini Ganesh, Anne Wu, Jack Yang, Linyang Zhang, Salina Tran, Sylvain Coulombe, Samy Coulombe, Richard Tran, HaoHao Du, Kristopher Giang, Kartkay Tyagi, Mathieu Simard, Cindy Wu, Lisa Tang, Christine Wang and Calvin Cheung. These volunteers gave their time to help with the draw desk, time, umpire, score keep, line judge, clean the floors, etc. Without their help this tournament would not have been possible.
The tournament organizers would also like to thank the RA Badminton Club for letting us use their top of the class facilities to host the 2014 Junior Championships. Also, we would like to thank the ODBA for sponsoring this Championship!
We hope you all had a great time. Thank you all for participating, and we look forward to seeing you again at the next ODBA tournament!
