LSCOBA 2006 Winter Golf Tournament at Yinli Foreign Investors Golf Club on December 1, 2006
We had a new record number of 45 old boys showed up at the golf club for this event, with as many as 10 new faces including the San Francisco Chapter President George Law (66), Alex Cheung (70), Albert Li (75), Joseph Leung (78), Monte Chan (82), Edward Ma (89), Robert Yan (91), Alvin Choi (97), Raymond Chung (97) and Terrence Mak (97). We gave a warm welcome to all the new comers on the coach, and everyone was excited to note that Alvin Choi (97) played off a handicap of 7, being the lowest handicapper and among the youngest participants in our history. The golfers were surprised to receive a very nice golf umbrella as souvenir, thanks to the generosity of Alex Cheung (70), and all put on the LSCOBA cap before taking the group photo. Everyone enjoyed the day out with some good golf, the perfect weather, the camaraderie, the laugh and the beer.

According to the La Salle Golfers "local" rules, Alex Cheung (70) has kindly donated HK$4,000 to be shared between LSCOBA and the golfers' fund, and Tony Cheung (77) and Daniel Ho (75) each also donated HK$2,250 towards the golfers' fund. As always, I am indebted to Thomas Tung (77) and Dale Chan (75) for assisting me in organizing this event. Last but not least, I have to thank all the participants for their support in making the biggest turnout.
The golfers have already started discussions on how to celebrate the 75th anniversary of our Alma Mater next year, and any suggestions are welcome.
