Double Dutch Contest Hong Kong Vol.4,  2 Nov 2013

This year we participated with one team in DDCHK in the under 18 category. This is a new four girls teenage team call SYNTHESIS.

Took the morning flight on Friday, 1 November 2013 to Hong Kong. The next day was rehearsal in the morning and competition in the afternoon. The final performance was a respectable job both in the speed and performance events but not good enough for a winning place.

We stayed at the Y-Loft directly above the competititon auditorium so after the competition we went upstairs to change and went to "Women's Night market" to shop. Next day the team visited Disneyland, which was a first for 3 of the players. After the 8pm fireworks at Disneyland the team still had energy for "Temple Street Night Market" shopping.

On our fouth and final day in Hong Kong we met up with friends the Hong Kong team Shuffle for lunch.
