1.    COA 2020 National Day Cruise - Thursday 01st October 2020

 

Most of us are so hungered for going to Macau, but unfortunately the cross boarder entries between HK & Macau still closing due to the COVID19 issue.  Therefore, we are unable to arrange the scheduled HK to Macau Race in the National Day weekend.   As alternative, we are arranging local event during the National Day weekend.

While National Day holiday is a 4 days long weekend, 1st October 2020 is also the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival and some of you may need to arrange family dinner on the day.  To give more options and feasibilities for you to enjoy the 4 days holiday, we invite you to join an one day fun team / family cruise on Thursday 01st October  2020.

News for 2020 April (click individual item to see Details)

 

  

Revised COA Events in 2020     

Due to world wide outbreak of the COVID-19 Virus, HKSAR have currently laid restrictions on sports and group gathering events.  To follow the HKSAR & HP guidelines, we have no choice but to postponed the COA events scheduled in the coming months until the recent HKSAR restrictions are lift / reduced.

It is foresee that the COVID-19 Virus would last for months.  Hence, even if HKSAR would lift / reduce the restrictions on sports events in the near future, it would be unsafe to arrange group gathering (i.e. meal or prize giving parties) after COA events.   

 

Therefore, COA has revised the format of the events in 2020 to one day events which without prize giving party after the Rally / Race is finished.  Results would be recorded and prizes would be presented to the winners in the COA 2021 AGM & Annual Party in early 2021 - Hopefully the COVID-19 Virus would then be over / become mild / with available medicine.

The first revised format COA event (without prize giving party) is the COA Summer Rally planned on Saturday 30th May 2020

Click Here for planned Rally details

-  Subject to lift / reduce of HKSAR restrictions on Sports Event

-  Subject to Mardep approval of the event permit

-  To be confirmed in early May 2020
