We look forward to non-member MCOBs to take this opportunity to register for life membership and support the sporting activities of MCOBs.
6. The Old Boys Weekend ( OBW) 2017
It’s that time of the year when we all track back ‘home’ to Kuala Kangsar in droves to gather, reminisce, recount and re-enact, possibly, our days in our beloved alma mater. Stories re-told umpteen times yet evoking the same laughter, joy and happiness of the times shared with our brother batch-mates, seniors and juniors.
Let’s all gather at MCKK ( where else?) come April 14th to 16th 2017, let’s try out if we still have the skills in games we may not have played for a long time, let’s see if our voices are still good enough to belt out those songs that we used to sing. There will be enough opportunities this year to stretch your vocal chords to reach those notes….we are planning for an Al- Fresno Dinner, supper in the open, clear night air of Kualer and even a karaoke to make the late evenings merry. There will be food trucks, a lucky draw and there’ll be a carnival like atmosphere in sync with this year’s theme:- “Bringing back the fun.!” Let’s make it into an enjoyable and fruitful weekend. Better yet, let’s make into a weekend where the fun never ends.
Do register early and online, and to all MCOBs in the X7, it’s the time to celebrate your 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th year at the familiar MCKK grounds and the homely Kuala Kangsar town.
