    With so many of our players away on holidays, perhaps it's best to make things easier and to celebrate 2009 CNY on a smaller scale.

    To remember what we did last year 2008: click here

    By the way, this year kong-19 from Brisbane emailed me that he will be attending.
    Suggestions for when we shall do it is now open.

    Cheers... chris-ccc

    i don't think it's smart to do it on the weekend where everybody's celebrating chinese new year 26/1 (which is on australia day!).

    regarding to the date, i think there's 2 options
    a) before the chinese new year - which does not gives us enough time to organise
    b) after the chinese new year - which means there's more of a chance we could involve members as they should be back for holiday (unless they are away for the chinese new year holiday - then again, we can't please everyone)

    it should be fun as we haven't met up since ..... uh CNY 2008.

    hope you all talk about it at supper time. any suggestion is welcome.

    Arrow We are to do this year 2009 CNY Celebration simpler

    .
    Agree ... Most of our players, who are still in Melbourne, would be celebrating with their families on CNY Day 26-Jan-2009.
    So it is best not to hold it on this day.

    If we are to do this year simpler, we shall not be organising set banquets like what we've done in previous years. We only need to inform the restaurant roughly how many tables are required (say, with a margin of + or - 1 or 2 tables). So we don't need plenty of time to organise it.

    Most of our players away are actually 'away for their CNY holiday' with their families overseas. And probably they are not reading our threads and not knowing what we are planning in Melbourne.

    The question is whether we should wait for them to return. If we do, then we would have to wait until March, when Universities recommence

    Thumbs up 'CCC-JT Ultra-Melbourne University Badminton-Tellstars' Combined 2009 CNY Celebration

    hkhung ... OK, I did more than that. I made a short announcement to all players attending last night, Friday 2-Jan-2009, at our CCC at Waverley.

    Some news (during/after our Friday session):
    (1) 2 more CCC players said they will be returning home to Malaysia for their 2009 CNY, one on the 16th, the other on 17th of January. Our CCC players are getting fewer and fewer as we are approaching the CNY.
    (2) Quite a few players from JT Ultra, including Jacky Chen, came to play with us last night. I said to Jacky that perhaps players from JT Ultra would like to come along to the celebrate the 2009 CNY with CCC (as you know, Jacky came for our 2007 CNY Celebration).
    (3) And since Jacky is also active with the University of Melbourne Badminton Club and Tellstars Badminton, I told him why not we have a 'CCC-JT Ultra-Melbourne University Badminton-Tellstars' Combined 2009 CNY Celebration. Jacky will now check if this can be organised.

    I told Jacky that because many of our CCC players are away, perhaps we should leave the date selection to players of the other 3 clubs.

    So this is our latest development.

    hkhung ... That's great. The more, the merrier.

    I was hoping to have a break from organising things... but it looks like you have pulled me back into it.

    Some info here:
    (1) I went to Happy Palace wanting to check what day/tables are available for us. I found that Happy Palace is taking a break for the Holiday Season. A sign on the door says that they are closed from 24-Dec-2008 to 11-Jan-2009. I will need to check with them on Monday 12-Jan-2009.
    (2) Jacky Chen said that many of JT Ultra Badminton players are also away on holidays. He said for me to decide on the date for our CNY Celebration. After that, he will inform us on how many from JT Ultra would be coming.
    (3) I will get in touch with Doncaster Templestowe Badminton to see how many from there will be coming.
    (4) I will also extend our invitations to Albert Park Badminton and Wesley Badminton.

    This will keep me very busy.

    We thought for this year 2009, we would not organise any pre-planned banquet.
    Therefore, just pay for what dish you wish to order for yourself.
