Message from the Chair – June 2023

2023 AVOHK Annual General Meeting

The Club had a good turnout of members at the AGM on Thursday, 8 June 2023. Thank you
to those members that attended at Museum Café (formerly, Café 8). There is an article
about the AGM in the newsletter. I would like to, on behalf of all the members, thank the
outgoing AVOHK Chair, Elaine Hall, for the great job Elaine did in leading the Club through
the last 2 years and keeping us all together. Congratulations to Glory Yau on being presented
with AVOHK Female Athlete of the Year and Aldo Kriel on being presented with AVOHK Male
Athlete of the Year. Both very well deserved. The following members of the AVOHK
Committee were voted in:


The new committee will gather for their first meeting on Monday, 26 June 2023. A date for
the diary, AVOHK are planning to launch the first AVOHK 5K Series in four years on Saturday,
9 September 2023, on Bowen Road. More details to follow. A big thank you to Freeman Lee
who is again the AVOHK 5K Series Race Director.


Congratulations to Andrew Waters who was 2nd in the M45 100m freestyle at the long
course Hong Kong masters swimming meet held recently. Hopefully, more medals from the
swimming group at future masters meets.


Please do take time to read the newsletter, there are some very interesting articles. The next
AVOHK Social Run will take place at 7pm on Wednesday, 5 July 2023. Meeting at HSBC ATM
