Hi All,

Firstly I would like to thank all those who turned up at the last jam on 15 Jul. Though most of you do not do line dance on a regular basis and some don’t even dance but you still turned up to give support, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Now it’s time again for another 5 hours of non-stop dancing at Kovan CC and I hope to see all of you again.

Andrew ‘Young", you need not wait a 1000 years or more….the dance will be on the list so hope you can dance to your heart’s content …. that is if you are no in HK on that day…then you may have to wait for the next 1000 yearsemoticon

Pauline, since you were so hardworking learning the Shy Waltz from your ‘sifu’ I will also include this dance for you if you are coming

For the ‘E Sliders’ there will always be 1 dance at least for all of you and maybe a few more easy to follow dances.

For non-dancers I can take requests if you have any favourite songs of yours you want me to play too ….that is provided I can find a dance to the songs and there are at least 10 people who can do the dance.

Neo Sock Cheng – Profile

Hi all,

Am a newbie to the Club (thanks to BBCat) and look forward to join the fellow club members in some of the activities.

I am a CPA but now working only on part-time basis (enough of the high stress JOB so now taking things easy) I also teach Line Dancing in the CCs and that is my only form of excersing for now emoticon.

I have just taken up a new hobby in Basic Photpgraphy in Jun and still learning the ropes…….any felllow photography enthusiats out there looking for kakis to go for photo shoot?

I enjoy the outdoor activities like fishing, camping, cycling( have not been on a bike for many years and will be keen to pick this up again) . Did stained glass, pan clay, macrame, cross sttich embroidery and beading in the past too but now eye sight not as good liao sigh emoticon.

Enjoy the occasional MJ game too but not a good player, will sing a few lines at karaoke and Oh yes I live to eat emoticon and will never say no especially to seafood …….. yummy yum yum

Would love to attend the 15 Oct member’s get together but I have an evening class to teach so will be a bit tough to make it on time…..will try to see if I can re-schedule my work hours to go to the 3.00pm session.

Looking forward to be part of the SHC and hope I can do my (small) to help/serve in any way.
