Mrs. Santa Claus writes:

"Celebrating Big Success for 15th Annual Treasure Hunt on Lamma Island

Santa Claus Visited Too!

Sunday was a busy day for many Lamma residents. Far from relaxing quietly at home, it was the day families and friends chose to enter into the 15thAnnual Treasure Hunt in support of Operation Santa Claus. With clues both hard and just occasionally relatively easy, but mostly clever and nearly always fun, teams of four or so raced off to complete the quickest route, work out the meaning behind the clues and chased each other up hill and dale.

Returning to the Island Bar and final resting place of the true answers, Treasure Hunters revived themselves with a bevvy as their clue sheets were assessed by those truly in the know. Meanwhile, Santa Claus was making his way merrily through the streets of Yung Shue Wan, ably supported by a team of elves and reindeer, to the delight of everyone in the village, distributing sweeties to those who had been good.

Following tradition, Santa entered his 'grotto' for a photo shoot with any children wishing to sit on his knee.
Prizes were eagerly snapped up and a thank you extended to the local businesses which had generously donated to the cause.

The day over, the collection boxes looked welcomingly full, children were happy, adults were just plain tired, and, safe to say for another year, a good time was had by all."

Wrapping up all the Operation Santa Claus fundraisers of the Island Bar, a major party with live music has been happening last night. I heard about it much too late to stop by, so if anybody has got some photos, please?

New Year's Day morning, time for an early start to get up to Mt. Stenhouse, at least 10 of us, the long hike from Pak Kok Village and climb up from the Lo So Shing side has been dubbed Resolution Walk...

Straight from this forum into the SCMP today, 4 of my photos on the City-2 page, featuring the Island Bar's Treasure Hunt.
Great and well-deserved exposure for the Island Bar and the fantastic Treasure Hunt team and all the participants.

By sheer coincidence, I hiked to the top of Mt. Stenhouse yesterday with the winning family pictured...

I'm just a bit miffed that the SCMP credited their own photographers, even though I asked them to be credited when I gave permission to use my photos for free...

Some of my photos above have been published on the Operation Santa Claus website run by the SCMP.

http://osc.scmp.com/public_upload/album

After not giving me any credit at all for last year's 4 Treasure Hunt photos published in their print edition (see above), despite the Island Bar's request when submitting them, they got it *almost* right this time:

"Lamma treasure hunt-Gung of Lamma.com.hk"
24 December 2014"

Only 3 mistakes in their caption this time:
Island Bar Treasure Hunt
Lamma-Gung instead of Gung
Date should be 7 December.

Makes you wonder about the accuracy and fact-checking in the SCMP's editorial content...

Maybe, perhaps some of these photos will make it into their print edition tomorrow, Dec 27.

See SCMP today, Dec 27, 2014, page A5:

Treasure Hunt boosts Operation Santa Claus charity (SCMP)

From the Island Bar press release, used for part of the SCMP story:

"The city's year-end fundraiser has inspired many charitable minds to turn the campaign into a new edition of "Hong Kong's Got Talent".

Take the Lamma Island Treasure Hunt as an example. Masterminded by The Island Bar, the cross-island quest on December7 spurred the local community and their associates, including dogs, to look for hidden prizes through a set of funny clues.

"The clues take them to parts of Lamma that even locals may never have explored, and require an agile mind and a sense of humour," the organisers said of the treasure hunt's 16th year with Operation Santa Claus.

With that, Lamma residents set off their own series of charity activities designed to help Operation Santa Claus, the fundraising campaign organised by the South China Morning Post and RTHK.

Activities that challenged the mind included the Christmas Music Quiz and a 2014 In Review Quiz. Thanks to the geniuses who came up with tough - if not unanswerable - questions, donation boxes were filled to the brim.

For a test in physical fitness, the annual Santa Sprint on January 4 will see brave souls race in dragon boats on wintery waters. All proceeds from entry fees and food sales go to Operation Santa."


They used a photo by Daniel Clarke that I submitted among my own shots via Dan Peterson of The Island Bar, giving Daniel credit, of course. The credits got lost in the email chain, it seems, and they credited me instead. Well, it almost makes up for not crediting me at all for my 4 Treasure Hunt photos they published last year. The story is printed and out there, too late to change, so let me give credit to Daniel once again for .

And the SCMP got one much more important fact wrong, the Yella Umbrella Fellas were third overall, not first! They won last last year, but were disappointed last year. The honour went to Saved by Beacon, No. 1!
Here are the rankings once again.

1st Place: Saved By Bacon
2nd Place: Mental Marys
3rd Place: The Yella Umbrella Fella


Best Costume: Santaz Army
Fastest Time: And The Winners Are
Best Team Name: Independent Secular Island State
Most Excited Player: Tracey Duggan

"Hi, Sharon here from The Island Bar.

Island Bar Treasure Hunt for Operation Santa Claus 2015

Is there anyone out there who feels they can commit some time and effort to a very worthy cause?

For the past 16 years the IB customers and families have supported Operation Santa in many ways and this year we plan to do the same, with Father Christmas through the village, Christmas Quiz, etc. However we are in desperate need of some help for the TREASURE HUNT.

Those of the many wonderful people who have helped in past years simply can't do the usual great and dedicated job this year due to personal commitments or health reasons.

So I wondered if there is anyone out there who would have the time to walk around, set the trail, make up a few clues and such? It really needs someone with time and energy to walk around during the weekdays and seek out some interesting clues.

A fresh look at the way it's done is always welcome. We can still give a lot of background support and lots of (probably unwanted and perhaps unneeded) advice.

Please call Sharon on 2982 2800 or email <dashansa1@yahoo.com> if you think you can contribute any time/ideas to this worthy charity project!

Giddy Up Rudolph!"
