[Lamma Island, 01 December 2015] Oyez, Oyez!

Learn about the latest on Lamma’s Operation Santa Claus 2015 effort. Here is a special update for all you eager beavers and wannabe elves and reindeers!

Treasure Hunt

Work on the 17th Annual Island Bar Treasure Hunt is progressing apace with a fantastic new crew laying and designing the trail and clues. It’s a lot of work, with the organisers putting hearts, souls and a lot of footwork into making it happen.

So join us for the 17th Treasure Hunt, starting at midday at The Island Bar on December 6 (Sunday). For just a $500 entry fee per team, all of which will go to OSC, we invite you to turn up with your team of four (or so) and be prepared to be cryptically challenged, as you wend your way through the side lanes and paths of Yung Shue Wan and its surrounds. We are almost prepared to bet that you will find places you never even knew existed!

And during the slight hiatus between finishing the trail and the presentation of the awards, Lamma will also enjoy a VERY SECRET visit by a VIP (shhh name withheld, but as a free clue, he will be very jolly and dressed in red) for the little ones to enjoy a photo op and a sweetie.

Christmas Music Quiz

Other upcoming events include more great news! This year’s Christmas MUSIC Quiz will be held at The Island Bar on Saturday, 12 December, at 8:00pm. Quizmeister Dave heralds thought-provoking challenges, some head-scratching melodiesand good fun in both presentation and content. Bring your money and brains or bring your money and leave your brain at home! It’s all in a good charitable cause and will give you hours of enjoyment!

Santa Sprint

The Annual Santa Sprint, organised by the Lamma Outriggers,is where you can expect to see some very glamorous Santas manning their various craft in a friendly competition in Yung Shue Wan Bay. Date and details for this event to be confirmed.

Bonus Quiz

Look for more updates as other activities come on line. One that is already in the pipeline is a Bonus Quiz for OSC planned for early January at The Waterfront Bar and Restaurant, so don’t let the Christmas festivities ruin your brain cells – keep up your Christmas cheer for early in the New Year.

We have prizes galore for all the activities organised for OSC on Lamma, generously donated by local restaurants, bars, hairdressers and a few philanthropic individuals as well!

Lamma supports OSC every year. This promises to be one of the best! Join us to enjoy the fun of Lamma and support Operation Santa Claus 2015!

Kung Fu Pandas came in with most correct answers.
Dan's Lil' Ho's came in with second most correct answers (and a faster time).
The Island Bar Barians won best name.

Perhaps say everyone won a prize for something or other, however silly. And a lot of fun was 'ad by all!

As always, there is a heck of a lot of behind the scenes stuff so everyone deserves an accolade for helping out. - Treasure Hunt - David, Betty, Robert, Angie, (the route and the day and all the IT) Andy, Louise (skipping rope attendants) and of course Shhh You Know Who, and Theresa who decorated his Grotto, plus Alicia, Head Elf and her team who collected through the village. Plus everyone who supported the event. It was lots of fun in the end.

We have the next event on Saturday - The Island Bar Christmas Music Quiz!. And don't forget the Santa Sprint, which I believe is on Jan 1st.

Dawn is i/c of the Santa Sprint which is always a hoot! Join them for sandwiches and Season's Greetings in The Island Bar on the day!

Best wishes, season's greetings and bags of holiday happiness to you and Lamma-Por!

From the Island Bar:

22 December 2015

Over hills and through dales, the 17th Annual Treasure Hunt in aid of OSC saw dozens of avid walkers following cryptic clues and generally getting lost around the Yung Shue Wan environs of Lamma Island.

Up stairs, through muddy paths, singing silly songs and skipping in time to Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, the intrepid Treasure Hunters were undeterred, with every team completing the course (although one recorded the longest ever team time, having started first and arriving back at The Island Bar, last).

All in aid of OSC, the Lamma stalwarts also held a Christmas Music Quiz and the Paddlers will later host The Annual Santa Sprint on New Year’s Day, dressing up in Santa togs, paddling their way from Tai Wan To Beach to Yung Shue Wan.

All good fun. All in good spirit. All in a good Cause. Go Lamma!

The Treasure Hunt is doubling this year (usual race in the morning, plus an advanced race in the afternoon)!
More events being added as well, for example:

Robert Lockyear writes:

Operation Santa Lamma Charity Half Marathon and 10 km route. Sunday 4th December 2016.

Starting at the plaza near police station complete one circuit to the back of The Island Bar, then follow purple to the red line again and complete second circuit
That's the 21.1 km half marathon. It is a very challenging trail.

Some, but not all, Operation Santa Claus happenings on Lamma on Sunday, Dec 4, '16, are listed on the SCMP's OSC website already: http://osc.scmp.com/events/community

By the way, Hans Andersen Club in Tai Wan Village (and other places outside Lamma) will be one of the 20+ beneficiaries of this year's Operation Santa Claus: http://osc.scmp.com/article/bene_list/elderly

The project they applied for is a bit similar to the Storytelling events below, but for elderlies:

More posters are coming in, all for this super busy weekend.
I'll probably be running/biking around North Lamma much of Sunday trying to capture photos of the several events for Operation Santa Claus...

"Hi Lamma-Gung, it was good to see you out and about on Sunday. Hope you got lots of photos.

I just wanted to let you know that our event raised $8,950 from the Enduro - all of which went to OSC!!!

I think the 10km Run/Walk/Hike, Treasure Hunt and Scavenger Hunt combined raised $9,144.

We're really happy that our event raised so much towards such a good cause. All the hard work of our group of volunteers working steadily over the past few months has paid off.

Please feel free to announce this on the website."

My yearly photo.
Not for the SCMP this year as they sent their own photographer this time (standing left from me from our "elevated" viewpoints).
