I realize you are new to this area and our badminton community and it seems like you are getting your information from either an unreliable source and/or someone who is not really in touch with the badminton community.  I have known Bernard for more than 4 years through badminton and he is the glue that has held the Triangle community together for years.  He is very honest, dependable, and I would venture to say he is one of the most well liked and respected members of our badminton community.  He has been selling badminton supplies to all of us for years, and delivers the purchased supplies to whatever location the person that bought them prefers - he has been doing this for years even before he started his business.  He could be a very valuable asset to you if you teamed up with him and stopped listening to your unreliable source.  The fact that he has been playing at your facility in itself draws business to your facility.  I think you need to rethink this situation and sit down and meet with Bernard and some of the others in the badminton community that have known him for years and talk this thing out instead of listening to your unreliable source who may have a personal problem, motive or reason that you are unaware of.  You are welcome to contact me if you have further questions or wish to discuss this further. 
PS I toured the facility and am impressed with your committment but since I live in Garner it is just too far away for me to get to on a regular basis to warrant a membership.

WOW! I am speechless.
There was No verbal warnings, no conversation, no prior emails or just simply a communication directly to me or sNp for a matter which could simply have been worked out.....straight to the banishment! (I understand there is a posted sign at the facility which I personally have not seen)

For the record, I did NOT solicit in your facility.  I do respect your business and I do avoid selling.  The several times I am there is to "play" and have fun.  The "continued selling" per your email, if I recall, were "pickups" on customer request.  I have no idea that's a no no!.  I have NOT created a "competition" propaganda, openly or silently.  Please ask ALL your customers if I had solicit or create a negative feedback upon your facility.  Also, please ask some of your NEW customers if Bernard referred them!!!

Regardless, I respect your decision to BAN me.  It is YOUR facility after all.

Lastly, I have not been using the email you sent  to for years, i.e. [address removed] as it is flooded with spams.  I am so curious why you sent me this email to that address and wonder how you know about that email address.  I have been known to all via [address removed]! My point is, if I had not checked this email tonight, I wonder what would happen if I just showed up at your facility.

To the rest of the badminton community,  I have been told that there is a post on Badminton NC Facebook of similar complaint. I believe I am the subject!   For those who have FB, please go read it (I don't use FB). I take Dennis' decision humbly :) However, I wonder what are your thoughts and  if you guys would like to vote if Bernard should be BANNED.  I am NOT asking to be UN-BANNED :) 

Anybody who replies with a comment or vote will receive an additional 20% discount on rackets & shoes, on top of our everyday sNp  low prices! :)  You know where to find me to get your discount (obviously not at Badminton NC anymore)

Hy, please forward to any other groups I missed :)
