Newsletter 2 – January 2020 | 僑青社會訊 – 第二期

 In News

This week there is a pair of celebrations firstly we have Chinese New Year day on the 25 January then follow by Australian national day celebration.  CYL wish our members good health, prosperity and happiness. We also wish the community affected by the recent bush fire of speedy recovery.

Chinese New Year
Our Recreation Group arranged a new year lunch at Dragon Boat Restaurant, the address is Harbourside Shopping Centre, Darling Harbour on Saturday 1st February 12 PM, cost $23 PP. Booking will be closed on 30th January, please book by sending message to Eddy at 0411257959 (please leave your name and number of participant).

We will cheer our Dragon Boat team during their race, starting 10.30AM at Darling Harbour, everybody will be welcome to join us. Our paddlers have been well prepared by training hard to defend their national title. Also, our Lion and Dragon team will also be performing as well. It will be a good opportunity to meet them and take photos.

New club house
In the August newsletter, I promised to provide more details about our prospective club house.

Eddy Young had interacted with a numbers of government departments expressing interest to lease government own vacant properties such as warehouse and club house etc. And found a prospective property is about 500 meters from the train station, the size of this club house around 1872 square meters and land size is 12,330 square meters. If succeed, CYL could build a multi facilities indoor sports centre. The second floor will be allocated for training facilities and specially design to build for Lion & Dragon Dance, Chinese culture dance, cooking class room, meeting room, and a canteen. We are in a process of negotiating with the government to lease this property and this has positive sign to go forward.

The successful acquisition of such valuable asset will allow CYL to conduct multi -sport and culture classes. It will be great opportunity to recruit high standard coaches to train our existing and future talents.

Alternatively, we also look into purchase a suitable building, but it is very challenging to find property with our limited budget.

Eddy Young want to thank Andy Yau, Meggy Sin, David Chan, Joe Wong, James Kwok; basketball, Gymnastic and Badminton Association of NSW and my architect Michael for their advice and encouragement.

CYL 80th Anniversary
CYL reach 80-year-old July 2019. We thank many devoted members who have been given so much time and effort for the sake of CYL and these are our truly unsung heroes, we are deeply appreciate what they had contributed to CYL. The following are just name a few examples of those dedicated members:

  • Chang Fai cooks dinner every Saturday for over 30 years. This provides good opportunity for members to socialise and become good friends
  • George Wong always helpful if any repair works were required
  • Annie Leung made costumes for dance troupe in the past 40 years
  • We also remember those inspirational members who had committed and served with endurance of hard works to CYL are Arthur Chang, Peter Wong, Joe Leung, Eddy Young and Ken Wong

Lion and Dragon Dance
Our Women Lion Dance team went to Macau November 2019 defend their world title. Coach Homan and Lokman did a great job with the girls. They won the world champion in 2018, unfortunately they didn’t have the same success in 2019 despite they had put up a strong performance. The team will take a break in 2020 and will bounce back for 2021 championship. Best wishes to our team and look forward to their success in 2021.

Our Lion and Dragon dance major performance for the Chinese New Year in conjunction with Sydney City Council:

The best time to see them would be in Chinatown

  1. Saturday 25th8 to 8.30 PM Sydney City Council’s Chinese New Year Opening. Eight of our beautiful members will accompany our Lord Mayor for the eye doting ceremony. It will be lighted dragon and lion performance until 10 PM.

僑青社會訊 – 第二期
這周有兩次慶祝活動,首先是1月25日的中國農曆新年,然後是澳大利亞國慶日慶祝活動。僑青社祝大家身體健康,繁榮幸福!我們也希望社區迅速從近期的叢林大火的影響中恢復過來。

中國農曆新年
我們的康樂組與2月1日,星期六下午12點在金龍閣餐廳安排了新年午餐,地址是達令港港灣購物中心,每人收費:$23, 預訂截止日期為1月30日,請發送信息至Eddy( 0411257959)進行預訂。(請留下您的姓名和參加者的人數)。

我們將為我們龍舟隊在比賽中加油,從達令港上午10:30開始,歡迎大家的參與。我們的槳手已經做好充分的準備,努力爭取通過艱苦的訓練來捍衛自己的國家冠軍隊稱號。此外,我們的舞獅隊也將進行表演。這將是一個與他們見面並拍照的好機會。

新會所
在8月的實時通訊中,我承諾就潛在新會所一事將提供更多的信息。

楊廣釗與許多政府部門進行了聯繫,表示有意租用政府擁有的空置物業,例如倉庫和會所等。並發現距火車站約500米的潛在物業,該會所的大小約為1872平方米(比現會所大七倍),土地面積為12,330平方米。如果成功的話,僑青社可以建造一個多功能的室內體育中心。二樓將分配用於培訓設施,並專門設計用於舞獅和舞龍,中國文化舞蹈,烹飪教室,會議室和食堂。我們正在與政府就租賃該物業進行商談,我們有信心去爭取。

成功獲得這種寶貴資產將有利於僑青社開展多種體育和文化課程。這將是招聘高水平教練以培訓我們現有和未來人才的絕佳機會。

另外,我們也考慮購買合適的建築物,但是要在有限的預算情況下尋找房產非常具有挑戰性。

楊廣釗在此感謝游龍,冼翠霞,陳耀榮,黃然毅,郭庭生,新南威爾士州籃球,體操和羽毛球協會以及我的建築師Michael的建議和鼓勵。

僑青社成立80週年慶祝活動
到2019年7月,僑青社已經成立了80週年。我們感謝哪些為僑青社奉獻出時間和精力的成員,這些都是我們真正的無名英雄,我們深表感謝!他們為僑青社做出了貢獻,以下僅是這些無私奉獻中的幾位成員:

-鄭輝 30多年來每週六做晚飯,這給社員們交友提供了機會並取得很多新委員

-黃家良在需要維修時總是出手相助

– 在過去的40年中,梁楊美紅一直為舞蹈隊縫製演出服裝

我們還記得那些為僑青社付出辛勤努力的鼓舞人心的領導們:鄭嘉樂,黃寶榮,梁錫洪,楊廣釗和王達謙等。他們付出一生的力量造福社區。

Lion and Dragon Dance   舞龍舞獅
我們的女子舞獅隊於2019年11月前往澳門捍衛世界冠軍稱號。 梁浩民和梁洛民教練非常出色。他們在2018年贏得了世界冠軍,不幸的是,儘管她們表現出色,但在2019年卻沒有取得同樣的成功。他們將在2020年休整一下,並將在2021年重返賽場爭取冠軍。衷心祝福我們的團隊,並期待她們在2021年取得成功!

與悉尼市政府一起在農曆新年中進行的舞龍舞獅表演:

我認為最值得捧塲和欣賞的是年初一晚上在 唐人街Haymarket的表演

  1. 八至八時半 – 僑青社為悉尼市政府新年慶祝活動開幕式進行點睛儀式,由我社八位 穿上民族服裝的靚女協助市長Clover Moore和嘉賓主持為八条醒獅點睛。
  2. 8:30 – 10:00 我社精彩的夜光龍和夜光獅演出。

另外我社夜光龍和夜光獅還有晚上四塲在雪梨歌劇院環形碼頭的演出  :從八時至九時半 :一月卅一日, .二月一日, 二月七日, 二月八日

 龍舟
僑青社將參加2020年4月8日至13日的全國龍舟錦標賽– Penrith帆船中心

康樂組
我們計劃9月去中國旅遊,一得到消息,我們將立即發送信息。

最後,僑青社希望我們Dixon街10號的會所將對公眾開放,屆時將立即開始書法,瑜伽,街舞和刺繡課程。
