YouTube: The poem by Hoon Joong High
 

The wings of time have flown us by
The seeds of our memory linger in my mind
Memory locked in space and time
The story once more reprised

Recalling those happy days
Of life spend in simple ways
Carefree and full of fun
Work and play beneath the sun

Faces once so familiar
Of sweet 16 and pure innocence
But time has transformed
A thousand shapes sizes and forms
A little bit older but certainly wiser

Tonite like the dawn of spring
A gathering of kith and kin
Of friends once lost but now found
And once again the joys resound

Tajma Bee sang two songs: Paper Roses and Before the next teardrop falls at Penang Adventurers' Club Youth Park 1st. Reunion 2017.

A special message from Margaret Chan

Dear friends, thanks so much for attending the event last night. It was great meeting up with all of you, some after more than 40 years, some after a few years and some I have not met or known before.

Nevertheless, it was a fun and memorable event, rekindling old friendship, reliving the old times, singing, dancing and simply chatting and laughing together.

Special thanks to all who took photos and videos, in particular Ching Neng Bin, Ong Teik Hong, Rosalind Chan, Jacey Goh, Lim Hock Cheng, Cheah Kok Soon, and others I may have missed.

Thanks to Kah Kheng who fetched me from my house. Thanks to Karen who did an excellent job taking attendance, carefully writing down each person's order, collecting money and making payment. To her assistant Enge Ng who sometimes calculated wrongly, much to the charging of Hock Cheng ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. In between all these, the two of them (Karen Kam and Catherine Oon) enjoyed the dancing to the songs and music presented by the two lovely ladies, Jafra and Annie. We were truly entertained.

Thanks to Joong High who exhibited the poetic side of him by composing and reading out his special poem dedicated to all of us. Thanks to Tajma Bee who belted out her evergreen Paper Roses and Before the Next Teardrop Falls. Tajma, you still have not lost the touch. We were brought back to more than 40 years ago when we were young, innocent, fearless and carefree.

Special thanks to those who flew back or drove back from outstation just to attend the event – Ong Teik Hong from Spore, Ching Neng Bin an Catherine from Ipoh, Huan Jin Kooi, Jacey Goh, Vignesh from KL, Francis Kow from Seberang, Lim Hock Cheng and Jackie Cheah from Bukit Mertajam and all the Penangites who took time off from their busy schedules to spend a memorable evening with old friends.

Hope that this is the beginning of many more get together. To those who missed last night, hope that you can join us at the next event.

visited on 21.08.2017

Taman Bandaraya was originally known as the Penang Youth Park, a recreation centre created for the youth. The then Chief Minister, Dr Lim Chong Eu, decided to turn the 172 acres land in Persiaran Kuari into an urban park catering to the young. It was officially opened on 26th February 1972. The following year in 1973, the late Wee Teow Soon, the Youth Park Officer started the yearly Recreation Leadership Courses for youth. There were eight courses conducted since 1973 and upon graduation the participants are known as Honour Recreation Leader (HRL) and their services to communities are to organize events for the public at the Youth Park. Events like skating competition, cross country run, archery, trekking, children camp, concerts and many more.

Patron: Dr. Ronnie Ooi Oon Seng, PJK, JP
Adviser: Wee Teow Soon, PJM
Founded on 24.04.1976

1st Annual Report
31.12.1976

Introduction

The Management Committee takes great pleasure in presenting its 1st Annual Report for the year 1976. This is accompanies by the statement of accounts for the period ending 31st December 1976.

The formation of the adventurers club marked another significant development in the Youth Park to augment the other activities that are carried out by the Youth Park for community participation and recreation. The Adventurers' Club was first founded on the 24th April 1976 by three energetic and dynamic young men namely, Mr. M.Pasupathy (Chairman), Mr. Ching Neng Bin (Hon.Secretary) and Mr. Hoon Joong High (Treasurer) who happened to share a common interest - a sense of adventure, and a dream to initiate a club whereby other people especially young men and ladies can get together and plan outdoor activities conducive for themselves and at the same time render whatever community services they could to the community for the betterment of society.

It was a mammoth task initially for the three persons who worked unceasingly to get the Club's constitution ready and at the same time to draw new members into the club. The work had been, thus far, rewarding and exhilarating for us. The seed sowed had now matured into a young plant and is still growing.

The objectives of the Club are mainly to inculcate a spirit of adventure among its members, to develop self reliance, good character and citizenship, through the following activities:

1. Exploration, 2. Excursion, 3. Camping, 4. Hiking, 5. Tracking, 6. Rambling, 7. Mountain Climbing, 8. Boating & Sailing, 9. Fishing & Abseiling, etc.

The Club has now entered into the threshold of a new era 1977. The Committee is proud to expound some of its past daring adventurous activities that had been successfully carried out during the course of eight months:

  1. Maxwell Hill Climb
  2. Motorcycle trip to Kangar
  3. Motor cycle trip to Pangkor Island
  4. Hike cum camping at Pantai Keranchut
  5. Night hike cum camping at Bukit Chindana 
Besides our adventurous activities the Club also had joint projects with other organization, aimed at fostering better understanding and inculcating a sense of fellowship among members of both organizations and at the same time providing community services. Some of the community projects are as follows:

  1. Gotong Royong at Bayan Baru
  2. Helping at the Penang Pesta Orchid Show
  3. Old Nicholites Variety Show at Dewan Sri Pinang
  4. Opening up of a New Adventure Trail at the Youth Park 
Collecting of newspapers for the Rifle Range Residents Association for their Students Scholarship Fund The Adventurers' Club had improved tremendously during the year, but not without the concerted efforts and scarifies put forth by a nucleus of dedicated members who strive for the continued advancement of our Club. Credit is given to all our enthusiastic supporters and active members who have never failed to answer the call-of-adventure.

Meetings
The Management Committee held a total of four meetings during its term of office. Many informal meetings were held to review programmes for our members and most of these meetings were normally held at our members' homes, which we felt would also go a long way towards fostering better ties of friendship and understanding amongst our members.

Membership
The Club has a total of 23 registered members. Eleven new members were recruited after an interview held on the 28th Dec.'76. This led to the considerable increase of registered members to thirty four. There was no resignation during the year.

Activities
This year, activities have shown a great success for the Club. these activities would not have been undertaken without the constant assistance and participation of our members.

Acknowledgments
The management Committee would like to express its sincere thanks and heart felt gratitude to:
Dr Ooi Oon Seng, PJK, for being our Club's Patron.
Mr. Wee Teow Soon, Leisure & Recreation Officer Youth Park, our Hon.Adviser for his kind assistance and advise.
Municipal Council Penang Island for the loan of camping utensils from the Youth Park.
All members and supporters for their active participation and assistance.
Press for their publicity.
All those who have helped us in one way or other but whose names have not appeared in our acknowledgment list.

Conclusion
The end of the first term of office marked an end of a period but a beginning of a new year for the Club. The activities organized within our Club and in association with other organizations evidently, show that the committee had endeavored their very best to fulfill the ideals of the Club. However, the Management Committee felt, it was also through the constant and enthusiastic participation of our members that kept the surviving flame of the Club burning -

"ACHIEVEMENT THROUGH CONQUEST"

Our Club looks forward to another exciting year and it is hoped that more 'new blood' will come forward to hold the reins of leadership and perpetuate the existence of the Club.

Logo designed by Huan Jin Kooi. A man with his hand upright is determined to conquer the world. The colour GREEN represents nature.

Club's Motto: ACHIEVEMENT THROUGH CONQUEST

"Achievement through conquest." The sheer determination in overcoming a physical challenge will build a person's character and produces a certain joy of achieving a task that seemed impossible in the first place.

ROUND ISLAND 76.8km Walk 1990 - The Real Challenge, the Round Island Walk 1990 and also one of the most unique event organized by the Penang Adventurers’ Club with the co-operation of the State Youth and Sports Department and the Municipal Council of Penang.

The Round Island Walk held in conjunction with the birthday of TYT Yang Dipertua Negeri Pulau Pinang was successfully organized for the 7th consecutive year on 14th and 15th July 1990 after months of tedious paper work and planning.

The event was launched on the 4th May 1990 by YB Dr Sak Cheng Lum, Penang State Executive Councilor and also the patron of the walk.

The objective of the event was to encourage the people to participate in sporting, recreational and adventurous events towards a healthy, active and disciplined society.

The unique event was flagged off by His Excellency, the Yang Di-pertua Negeri Pulau Pinang. A birthday cake in the shape of the Penang Island with the mascot on it was presented to His Excellency.

The success of the Round Island Walk 1990 was combination of the adventures spirit and energy provided by members, friends and public. The organizing committee would like to thank members, individuals, volunteers and organizations who have helped in one way or another to ensure the success of the Round Island Walk 1990.

Club's Song
Adventurous Spirit in my heart, in my mind
Adventurous Spirit with me, wherever I be
Marching ever forward loud, our voices ring
Till we reach our destination
A-d-v-e-n-t-u-r-e ..... A-d-v-e-n-t-u-r-e
A-d-v-e-n-t-u-r-e ..... Adventurous spirit in me

(Sung to the tune of John Brown's Baby)
(Lyrics composed by Mr. Hoon Joong High)
