Thank you

The buka puasa gatherings organized by Sportswriters Association of Malaysia (SAM) and Youth and Sports Ministry (KBS) on Monday, 14th September 2009, was a huge success.

More than 100 people attended the event, marking the first time that sportswriters from all media organizations converged for SAM after quite some time.

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to express my sincere 'thank you’ to all friends from the sports writing fraternity for your presence. This is a good indication for SAM. It also proves that SAM is still very much relevant for all of us!

I do hope all of you will continue to support SAM events in the future.

Special thanks also to Youth and Sports Minister, Yang Berhormat Dato Ahmad Shabery Cheek, for his presence and generous gestures to SAM. The RM100,000 annual contributions from Ministry will be used wisely, primarily to recognize fellow sportswriters who excel in their jobs.

Willingness shown by the Ministry to sponsor two SAM members, each year, to pursue professional short courses is something that caught me by surprise. I am deeply touched.

It was a huge success. Thank you.
