Please make your cheque payable to “Diocesan School Old Boys’ Association Ltd” and send it to 131 Argyle Street, Mongkok, Kowloon or pay into DSOBA bank account (HSBC A/C No.: 111-170312-001). Please remember to send us the bank receipt once you have transferred the fee to us.
Please also note that as many different members have put in a lot of time and effort in securing the appropriate venue at reasonable prices for all participants and because we have had experiences in the past whereby many old boys made last-minute booking but without effecting payment as prescribed and then some even do not show up eventually without prior-notice to the Club, it has become extremely tedious and cumbersome for the organizers to estimate the turn-up rate so to make the appropriate booking of tables and space and to guarantee a minimum to the chosen restaurant/club . This type of irresponsible action is not " DBS-like " and certainly not condoned by the Committee because it causes dis-array for the organizers and therefore out of courtesy to the organizers and the Club, we are setting a new rule effective immediately that once you make your reservation to attend the event, you will be deemed to have accepted to make payment regardless of whether you show up or not and payment must be received before the deadline in order to guarantee your booking. All payments made are non-refundable but are transferable.
