Weekend events to honour Mike Dawson

By in News on

Last Friday, UK citizen and longtime Kunming resident Mike Dawson fell to his death. Mike's friends have organized a few events this weekend in his honour and also to raise money to offset the costs of returning him home.

This Saturday a football (soccer) match will be held in Mike's honour at 2:00 pm at Yunnan Normal University. Anyone is welcome to stop by and watch Mike's former teammates play – any and all contributions will be welcome.

A fancy dress pub crawl has also been organized for Saturday night, beginning at 7:00 at Chapter One, after which it will move on to Salvador's Coffee House, The Box and Halfway House finishing up with a dance party at The Hump Bar. Silly attire is encouraged.

Tickets for the pub crawl cost 50 yuan, which will get you 60 yuan of free drinks plus half price drinks after that. Pub crawl tickets are available at all participating venues as well as at that afternoon's football match.

A memorial will also be held for Mike on Sunday, anyone who was friends with Mike are invited to meet his parents. Time and location details will be posted on this site soon.

GoKunming extends its condolences to Mike Dawson's family and friends.
