Hope that you all had great Christmas Holidays and New Year Holidays.

It is summer time now up at Northern Hemisphere and it is time for you all to maintain with shooting practice to match the high standards what they have got during the Summer Deaflympics.

Because when we all met last time at 2009 Summer Deaflympics in Taipei, the enthusiastic officials and volunteers from Chinese Taipei Shooting Association tells me that they were very surprised and extremely impressed that the Deaf Shooting Competitors were brilliant and are of high standards.

I was really proud of you all of the shooting competitors, officials, coaches and supporters from every countries who made this shooting events during 2009 Summer Deaflympics very successful.

It is not impossible that we all can raise the bar up to equivalent those during future Summer Deaflympics.
