Yes, those are two birdy/shuttlecocks in that photo. At one point they were trying to have four going at the same time. You have to imagine it was dangerous being near those rackets.
I was smart enough to stand in the back with the camera, which gave me a reason to stay out of the line of fire of what amounted to 3 9 year olds and a 7 year old. Oh, and two grown-ups, one of them relatively insane although I promised Mr. Dump I wouldn’t mention his name unless I was telling everyone what fantastic form he has.
