Sun, July 26 2015:  Badminton
Led by Amanda
Meet: TBA
Description: It's just too hot to go hiking these days. Why don't we stay indoors to play a couple of badminton games? I shall reserve badminton court(s) in one of the government sport centres which is easily accessible by MTR. Timing and location will depend on court availability, but I shall target to start the game around mid-day so that we can enjoy an afternoon tea afterward. Depending on the number of people who sign up and the court availability, I shall reserve courts for 1-3 hours. Please try to sign up before July 14. Latecomers will only be entertained if court is available. I shall send the details once I manage to get the court(s) by July 16. To book your place, or for more information, please email Amanda.

Remember to bring your swimming suit as we will definitely stop somewhere to swim. We may also take the opportunity to explore some of the islands after swimming. So, please bring along with you a pair of sandals good enough for walking along the shore. Food and drinks are NOT provided, so please bring whatever you need to survive the whole day. I'll divide the junk hire charge among the number of people who ACTUALLY show up. So, feel free to bring your friends along, but you need to book your places in advance. To book your place, or for more information, please email Amanda.
