Stage 5th Position
Gung Hay Fat Choy

(Happy Chinese New Year)

After the successful shows of the last two years this year we hoped to be in the running again but this was not to be.
We are happy with this result as this year we had a new team running the show and this is the first time we have been out of the top 4 since 1975 not a bad record when you think about it.
This year's stage show was based on a Chinese New Year and how do you say Happy New Year in Chinese?
"Gung Hay Fat Choy"
