50th Reunion Programme Planning #3 (2015-03-29)

Dear Classmates,

Based on our various meetings here in Hong Kong, I have compiled a document containing all relevant information for our 50th Reunion. There are links on the first page taking you to the daily itineraries and various major topics within the document. There are still quite a few issues to be resolved as you can see.  In our last planning meeting here in Hong Kong, we agreed that getting a firm handle on numbers for certain events is needed in order to make solid progress from here on.
This report seeks your support to make a deposit of roughly 50% for each of the three dinners and the Fujian trip; participation in other activities do not pose logistical problems and therefore do not require good estimates of numbers. The deposit for each dinner is set at HK$200 per head per occasion and that for the Fujian trip is HK$2,500 per head; for the convenience of those overseas, an approximate amount in foreign currencies can be paid locally. To reduce exchange losses, payment can be made to regional coordinators who will then settle with Leslie later on here in Hong Kong; our coordinators are CK 陈中健 for USA,Andrew 邓伟燊 for Canada,Frankie 李绍晖 for Rest of Word,Vincent 梁子正 and Leslie 张叔千 for Hong Kong.  They will contact all known classmates and secure deposits to help finalize events requiring firm estimates.  Regis 罗烈光 has kindly set up a Facebook account to locate members not in contact so far, please help him in this effort. I have done up an Excel spreadsheet containing those known in various regions, including previously published complete class lists so that all can see who are still missing and help to bring them onboard.
Norman 苏中平 produced a list of teachers who taught us, are still living and in good health.  Apart from Father Smyth, a maximum of three teachers live overseas.  Joe 彭振声  is managing the teacher sponsorship programme.  For those who are able and willing to make contributions, please contact Joe. We ought to send out invitations to teachers by the end of May at the latest so that travel plans could be made.
On behalf of all those involved in planning our reunion here in Hong Kong, I count on your enthusiastic support.
Best wishes to you all.
Francis 敏康

50th Anniversary Reunion in HK - Planning Report #2

50th Anniversary Reunion - 2015 in HK

Dear classmates,

A few of us in Hong Kong had a meeting yesterday to discuss plans for our Reunion and we agreed on the following:

  • Our Reunion officially starts at 16:00 at WYK on Saturday 2015 10 17;
  • Full day in Hong Kong on Sunday 2015 10 18;
  • Full day in Zhuhai/Macau on Monday 2015 10 19; and
  • Three day trip to China with a possible two day extension from Tuesday 2015 10 20 to Saturday 2015 10 24 for those interested.

The shift of one day is to accommodate those of us in Hong Kong who are still working but would like to participate in local activities as much as possible.

To allow those of you from overseas to firm up your travel arrangements, the period for our 50th Reunion shall be fixed from Saturday 2015 10 17 to Saturday 2015 10 24.

You are urged to offer your ideas and suggestions on the following tentative plans for each day/event.

Saturday 2015 10 17 at WYK

16:00 - 18:00  Kick off of our 50th Reunion followed by casual activities on campus; dinner at YWCA across the street 18:00 - 22:00.   Prior to 16:00 some of you may wish to be there earlier, especially those who have not been back for quite some time.  I am happy to arrive around 14:00 to welcome you and your family.  I shall work with Norman So 苏中平 regarding specific details and would like to ask Vincent Leung 梁子正 to book the dinner venue.

Sunday 2015 10 18 in Hong Kong

Many ideas were proposed but no single one dominated.  Leslie Chang 张叔千 has agreed to take the lead to work with many classmates who are experts in local attractions - Regis Lo 罗烈光, Hugh Choy 蔡洪卿, Ling Shin Poe 林鑫宝 and Tam Wing Biu 谭永彪 to name a few.

Monday 2015 10 19 for Zhuhai/Macau

There are many developments in HengQin Zhuhai 珠海横琴 and a trip would offer insights to the pace of change in the area.  Edmund Kwok 郭少棠 has agreed to work out a schedule for sights in the area ending at 16:00 in Macau.  Joe Pang 彭振声 shall take over in Macau with help from Regis with the aim of having dinner at a suitable time so that the return trip to Hong Kong shall not be too late.

Tuesday 2015 10 20 to Saturday 2015 10 24  Trip to China

One of the key factors for China's rapid economic development is the comprehensive implementation of her infrastructure.  A ride on the high-speed train is a must.  John Shek 石如鹏 has agreed to take the lead, with help from other classmates who have done many trips before, to work out some options for a suitable 3+2 (optional extension) day trip to China.

A fairwell dinner is planned.  Depending on the travel plans for overseas classmates and attendance of the China trip, the specific day shall be determined nearer the time of our Reunion.

We shall all be closer to 70 than 60 next year and long distance travel could become progressively more challenging.  Hopefully, our overseas classmates would make an effort to return to Hong Kong to relive some memorable moments in our formative years and to share valuable life experiences amongst ourselves.

Not counting spouses, I hope we can get at least 20 from overseas and 30 locally.  Please help to spread the news.
