Hope you all arrived home safely and settled back to normal routine.

It was really sad that our friend and supporter Mr. Chou Kuo-Tung who passed away and it was a great privilege knowing him for some years and would not be forgotten by us all.

It was really good to see you all at Cong Si Shooting Range during 2009 Summer Deaflympics in Taipei and it went very well and many thanks for your time, support and participation which were very much appreciated and would not be forgotten for a long time.

It is hard to believe that 2009 Summer Deaflympics went too quickly but we have another Summer Deaflympics coming up at Athens, Greece in 2013 which would probably arrive quicker than we would imagine.

We were very fortunate to have very enthusiastic officials and volunteers from Chinese Taipei Shooting Association that have been working extraordinarily hard to make the Shooting Range ready for us all for 2009 Summer Deaflympics which was very successful.

Many thanks to Clark Chen and Judy Liou for their remarkable effort to support the Summer Deaflympics Shooting Program.

Next step for all is to work out to prepare the next World Deaf Shooting Competitions in near future.

And also work with Asia Pacific Deaf Sports Confederation for the next Shooting Competitions hopefully in near future.

What we would like to see to have complete Shooting Events Program all over the world for everybody who are interested to participate to avoid the conflict of dates that may arise.

After a lot encouragement from those who were present at the Shooting Competitions during the Taipei Summer Deaflympics that I would continue as ICSD TD for Shooting.

Please feel free to contact me at any time.
