2009 - Eighth Annual Chinese New Year Award Banquet Report

On Saturday, January 24, 2009, Wang’s Martial Arts held its eighth Annual Chinese New Year and Award Banquet at Café East in Humble, Texas.
                After enjoying a delicious and filling meal, the MC for the evening, Victor Makris, warmly welcomed everyone to the festivities and honored the present black belts with small trophy for their time and effort at the studio. Next, the awards for tournament and report card points were handed out with first place being a six foot trophy! There were numerous smiles and flashes of the camera.
                Following the awards was the entertainment program which opened with the Chinese Fashion Show. WMA students, family and friends showed off lovely silk garments. Next, Victor Makris wowed the audience with his classical guitar playing a South American piece and a baroque Italian piece.
Once again the banquet was a great success thanks to everyone at WMA, their family and friends.
