AP Deaf Games 2019
I am pleased to inform you all that Hong Kong Sports Association for the Deaf has agreed to HOST the 9th Asia Pacific Deaf Games to be held in Hong Kong in November 2019. APDSC Executive Committee is VERY pleased and grateful to Hong Kong Sports Association for the Deaf for deciding to host after some lobbing/negotiations for a while.
Please find attached photo of the signing ceremony between APDSC and HKSAD. Our APDSC President and Treasurer visited Hong Kong for the site inspection last few days ago. They were VERY satisfied with the venue facilities, support, etc. that’s why APDSC decided to give the Games to HKSAD as a Host.
A formal letter of agreement in principle has been signed by both of APDSC and HKSAD on 19th December 2017.
I will create a formal DRAFT Memorandum of Understanding in next few days and will have “discussion/negotiation” between APDSC and HKSAD to finalise the MoU from January to end of February 2018. A formal FINAL MoU is aiming to be signed between APDSC and HKSAD in March 2018 when the APDSC Executive Committee is having its Executive Board meeting in Hong Kong.
More information such as sports, accommodation, costs, exact dates in November 2019, etc. will be announced late in March 2019 and an invitation letter will be sent out too. Also more information/photos will be in our APDSC’s new website which will be released shortly.
Please start to plan well ahead to send your BIGGEST team members to participate the 9th Asia Pacific Deaf Games. Let me know if you need to have more information, or support, etc.
