Announcement No. 5 (Important information)

Dear Friends,

  1. Conference Time is rapidly approaching: In less than three weeks, we will gather together in Salt Lake City for the 2019 West Coast Taiwanese American Conference.  Although the conference name refers to the West Coast, we will also meet old and new friends coming from elsewhere in the US, as well as from Canada and Taiwan. We have over 120 registered attendees and more than 90% of them have signed up to join the post-conference tours!

    The University guesthouse and Douglas Ballroom (name of the conference room) is enclosed by a rectangle on the upper left corner. After getting off from the Ford Douglas Station, turn right and walk to the elevator which takes you upstairs connecting to the beginning of a sky bridge and follow the path indicated by arrows to the guesthouse.

  2. Stay Healthy: There are few items that I would like to call your attention. First and foremost is to stay healthy. Recently three couples called to cancel all reservations citing medical reasons, despite they had put much effort in completing the registration form and also signed up and paid money months ago to join the northbound tours. Although some hotels still allow cancellation, you may lose the cost paid for the bus seat after June 1 unless you are able to find someone to buy your seat.  Fees paid to buy bus seats are not refundable. Please stay healthy so as not to forego the opportunity to visit and witness the natural wonders north and south of Salt Lake City.
  3. Travel Light: Before you pack, look up the weather condition in late July for the places that you are going to visit and then pack accordingly. Generally, in mid and late July, the average temperature in Salt Lake City is between 85 and 95 F during the daytime and it cools down in the evening to around 60-70 F. However, this year is somewhat cooler. Temperatures in the national parks in Southern Utah are higher but seldom over 100 F for very long. Air in Utah is dry,  and although it is hot, the air is not humid like in Taiwan. In the Grand Tetons/Yellowstone area, the temperature is around 80 F during the day and cooler in the evening and morning, so bring a sweater or a jacket with you. We recommend you travel light. Please note, the guesthouse will not allow luggage storage after your check-out on 7/21 even though you will return to stay in the evening of 7/24.
  4. From the Airport to the University Guesthouse: After arriving at the Salt Lake City International Airport, I recommend you take the light rail train (called Trax) to the University Guesthouse. The Trax green line (not necessarily painted green!) starts right at the Airport, and you would switch to the Trax red line at the Courthouse station heading to the University Medical Center.  You would get off at the Fort Douglas station (one station before the University Medical Center) and it is only about 5 minutes walk to the University Guesthouse. The total time from the Airport to the University Guesthouse is about 45 minutes, depending on the time spent waiting for the transfer at the Courthouse station. Refer to the Trax map posted on our website. Trax runs frequently (15 minutes intervals during weekdays and 20 minutes during the weekend); it is safe and inexpensive (only $1.25 for two hours for seniors). An alternative travel option from the Airport is taking a taxi; you may save about 10 minutes under normal traffic conditions, but it costs about $50. A site map is posted on the website to help you walk from the Fort Douglas station to the Guesthouse,
  5. Hotel Check-in and Conference Registration:The official Guesthouse check-in time is 3 PM, but if the room is cleaned early and available, you may be able to check-in earlier. The conference registration desk opens at 1 PM, at which you will  receive your name tag, meal tickets, a conference handbook, and a custom-made canvas carrying bag. If you arrive before your room is ready, you can wait in the lounge. Hot coffee, tea, and other drinks will be available 24-hours in the lounge with sofas, tables and chairs for you to rest or work with on your laptop. Dinner will be served at 6 PM on 7/19 and on 7/20 in the conference room. Please mark on your meal ticket, your choice of fish, meat (beef or chicken) or combo (combination of meat and fish). Lunch on 7/20 is a buffet.
  6. Conference Time: The first presentation will start at 7 PM on Friday (7/19) after dinner. Please read the conference program and other useful information in the conference brochure (or handbook). The conference ends after the entertainment Taiwan Night program at 9:30 PM on July 20. All attendees are expected to leave the conference room by 10 PM.
  7. Mormon Choir and the Spoken Word Program in the morning of July 21: Those interested in attending a live performance of the world renowned Mormon Choir and the Spoken Word program in the morning July 21 in downtown Salt Lake City will need to get up early. 120 seats are reserved for our group in the Convention Center of the Mormon Church. The Center doors open at 8:30 AM and all guests need to be seated by 9:15 AM when the doors are closed. Our group will enter at door 8 and be seated by 9 AM.  Those who have signed up for the post conference tours will be picked up by the tour buses, scheduled to arrive at 8 AM at the guesthouse. Those not attending the tour will need to find their own transportation to the Convention Center.  You need to be ready with your luggage to go to your bus. The tour bus will leave for Temple Square, near the Convention Center before 8:30 AM. If you miss the bus, you need to go to the Temple Square on your own. If you take Trax, be sure to change from the Red Line to the Green Line Trax (the same one going to the Airport) at the Courthouse station. The travel time from the Douglas station to the Temple Square (also the name of the Trax station) is about 30 to 35 minutes. You may want to call a taxi or Uber to take you there. The program ends at 10 AM; to save time members should speedily exit the Convention Center and walk to the tour buses which are waiting, or continue to your next destination.
  8. Starting the Post Conference Tours: Be sure to get your lunch bento box and a Vietnamese sandwich (you receive one each) before you get on your tour bus. One bus is northbound and the other southbound, make sure that you are on the right bus. Seats are not per-assigned, so take what is available when you are inside the bus. We are now on our way! The driver of each bus is requested to make a rest stop every two hours.
    1. Itinerary of the Northbound Tour: We stop first at Garden City on the shores of the beautiful Bear Lake, and also enjoy a raspberry shake. The next stop is Afton, WY for a brief visit to Star Valley for Chocolates before we arrive at Jackson (the largest small town in the Jackson Hole valley) around 6 PM, with enough time for eating dinner and exploring the town. We end the first day (7/21) after checking in at the Antler Inn or at the Elk Country Inn to spend a night. Note: breakfast is not provided at these two hotels, and we need to get up early to load our luggage to depart for the Triangle X Ranch for the rafting trip on the Snake River inside the Grand Teton National Park. Be sure to bring your camera to take pictures of the breathtaking Tetons rising above the Snake River; moose and other wildlife also regularly frequent the river banks and you might also spot an osprey diving in the river, or other animals playing on the river banks. The rafting trip lasts about three hours. During these three hours, the driver is instructed to take those members who do not participate in the river rafting trip to visit or hike on the trails near Jackson Lake or Jenny Lake, and then rejoin the group returning from river rafting and go together for lunch.                                                                                                                                                                          After lunch the bus driver will take the group to enter Yellowstone National Park through the South Entrance. Inside the Park, the group will visit West Thumb, Lake Yellowstone Hotel, Artist Point, and Canyon Village, before finishing the day exiting the Park through the West Park Entrance to Brandin’ Iron Inn to complete the second day (7/22) tour. We stay at this hotel for the night of  7/22 and 7/23. On 7/23, after Breakfast (Brandin’ Iron Inn provides breakfast) members get on the bus at 8:30 AM to visit Norris Geyser Basin Museum, Mammoth, Tower Fall, and Canyon Village, and then return to the hotel for dinner and rest. On 7/24, we check out and board the bus at 7:00AM to go viewing the Grand Prismatic Spring in the Midway Geyser Basin. For this, we need to go early. One cannot leave Yellowstone NP without visiting the Old Faithful. We shall time our visit with the eruption of this most famous geyser in the world before departing for Salt Lake City, to rendezvous the southbound tour group around 6:30 PM at Cafe Anh Hong for dining with Cantonese cuisine. After dinner, the tour bus will take the members to the university guesthouse to check-in and rest.  (July 24th is Pioneer Day, an official holiday in Utah. All state-run government offices and many businesses including some restaurants are closed.)
    2.  Itinerary of the southbound tour: After leaving Temple Square about 11 AM, the group heads toward Arches National Park. With a drive distance about 240 miles, we plan to arrive at the Park before 4 PM. After touring for about three hours, we shall spend a night at the La Quinta Inn & Suite in Moab. We check out at 8 AM on 7/22 after breakfast, to visit Canyonland NP and Capitol Reef NP. After visiting these two National Parks, the group will proceed to Cedar City to check in at Abbey Inn for two nights. The next day (7/23) after touring Bryce Canyon NP, the group returns to the hotel and to find a restaurant to have dinner. At 8 PM on this night, the performance of Shakespeare’s play Macbeth is at Cedar City’s world-renowned Utah Shakespeare Festival. Those who are interested in seeing the play, should purchase the show tickets online as soon as possible (https://www.bard.org – $58 for Center Orchestra). On 7/24 the group check out at 8 AM to tour Zion National Park; we leave the Park about 1 PM, returning to Salt Lake City to rendezvous with the northbound tour group at Cafe Anh Hong for the Cantonese dinner. After dinner,the group boards the bus and returns to the university guesthouse to check in and rest. (July 24th is an official holiday in Utah. It commemorates the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847. Similar to the Independence Day, many local and all state-run government offices and many businesses are closed on Pioneer Day.)
  9. Salt Lake City Tour: The tour buses pick attendees up at 8 AM on 7/25. One of the two buses will be dropping off attendees at the International Airport at 3PM, and the other will return to the university guesthouse at 5 PM. Please board the specific bus according to your travel plan. The places of interest are: This is the Place Monument, the State Capital, the Great Salt Lake, and Park City. Guests who are going to the Airport at 3 PM may only be able to see some of these places, leaving an opportunity to return to Salt Lake City again in the future.

TAC-WC 2019 Announcement No. 4

時光飛逝,歷經大半年的籌備,再過兩個月,我們即將在美西夏令會相聚。在5/5的籌備會議上,我向包括理事會在內的11位籌備委員報告目前的籌備進度:在籌備工作已進入尾聲的此刻,我們已有約120位鄉親報名參加會議,其中有10位為講員;此人數已超乎我原先的預期。120人已達會議室的最高容量,若人數持續增加,則需租用第二間會議室。不僅如此,55間客房也已全數售罄。7/19-20兩天,The University Guesthouse已喬不出客房了,請鄉親們儘量兩人一房,讓尚訂不到房的鄉親有房可住。

我們邀請到的講員有:4位G1講員,包括台灣高等法院法官洪英花;及6位G2講員,個個背景傑出。鄉親可到夏令會網站 (TAC-WC 2019-speakers-bios) 查看講員的詳細資訊。

鄉親參與會後旅遊遊的情況也非常踴躍。我洽租了兩部Le Bus,各有56個座位,皆為兩年的新車,配備有WiFi。北線(Great Teton and Yellowstone)一推出座位就被秒殺,目前有兩位鄉親候補中;而南線(Arches, Canyonland, Capitol Reef, Bryce, and Zion)尚有12個座位,請鄉親切勿錯過,及早報名。

我的好友Dr. J. J. Wang (王健椎),現居南加,獲猶他大學碩、博士學位。在他攻讀學位時,曾為文細數五座國家公園之美。我轉貼該文如下,與鄉親共賞。

“南猶他的呼喚 4/27/2019 王健椎

今年的美西台灣人夏令會,安排會後南北線旅行,北線到黃石公園,南線到猶他州南部的五個公園。

北線黃石名氣夯,報名踴躍早已滿;南線風景奇特稀,痴痴等人在告急。

在猶他大學念書的時候,有許多甜蜜的回憶,那時候年輕力壯,生活也沒有大包袱,荷包沒有多少銀兩,生活充實,充滿歡樂,尤其是一大群好友,擠滿一輛租借車,到南猶他州的公園旅行,更是回憶的一部分。

Capitol Reef & Canyon land 拱門錫安布萊斯 

拱門地區質地特殊,表面顏色的強烈對比,是地球上的唯一,別無分號。除了上百個顛峰,大量的鰭型岩石,呈現自然平衡的壯觀,還有兩千個左右大小拱門。奇特的景色,加上漫長的步道,如果有夕陽相陪,更令人難忘。

錫安公園難以形容的雄偉,讓人讚嘆造物者的萬能,容易喚起由衷的暇想,置身其中時,感受到人類的渺小,謙虛卑恭的人性,將自然流露無遺,親身體驗一番,終生受益無窮。

布萊斯的沖天石林,它的茂密是世界之冠,奇妙的出現在高原之上,也是地球的奇觀。石林在地球各大洲都有,但是布萊斯出產的,就是不一樣,顏色鮮艷,形狀百態,遠眺近看兩相宜,保證終生難忘懷。

Capitol Reef 位居猶他州的中南部,是深藏不露的寶,懸崖峽谷石橋,一望無際處處都是,超過一百英里的地表皺紋,看似地球的蒼老,卻是它悠久純樸的美,有幸一訪,人生一大享受。

Canyonland 散布著野性美,無數的峽谷和飛馳的孤山,是科羅拉州河長年刮蝕的結晶。因為河流的分布,分為四大區域,原始沙漠景觀外,各區有不同的特色,和獨特的挑戰和冒險,很值得一遊。”

最後,讓我們一起期待一個成功的夏令會及愉快的會後旅遊!

Warmest regards,

Jim Wang

南線旅遊 (Arches, Canyonland, Capitol Reef, Bryce, and Zion) 尚有12個座位,請鄉親切勿錯過,及早報名。

2019美西夏令會總召集人王進賢敬邀 (949-836-6075)

During the winter months, several staff members went back to Taiwan to celebrate the Lunar New Year and to spend time with family and friends. Without them, the preparation work for the conference slowed down considerably. Two members have now returned and ready to move forward. The third will not be back until April; we agree to communicate with using Line or email if needed..

We set the clock one hour ahead to the daylight-saving time few days ago; performing this ritual reminds me of the arrival of Spring. With the coming of Spring, birds start to sing, abd plants begin to sprout and put forth buds and fresh leaves. Spring gives us vitality, and this will certainly propel the conference organization group to move forward and set the preparation steps in gear to make it ready for the conference to smoothly take place in July.

I would like to inform the work we have done since Announcement No. 2 was sent.

  1. Tom Yu (TAC-WC member living in Arizona) has set up a website for 2019 TAC-WC: http://tac-wc.org. The website allows us to post and retrieve conference information, to do online registration, and keep track of registration payments, …etc. In addition to posting this announcement (Announcement No. 3), I shall also run it through www.TaiwanUS.net. We thank Martin Tsai, Editor of TaiwanUS.net for providing us the service. In order not to further encumber Martin, we shall post subsequent announcements on our website. It is thus important for the members to login the website to receive new information.

  2. Conference Speakers: Ed Huang (Board member representing the San Francisco/Bay Area) serves as chairman for inviting speakers. Realizing the need for passing the baton to the new generation of Taiwanese Americans, Ed places equal weight on selecting generation 1 (G-1) and generation 2 (G-2) speakers at this conference. We have now three G-1 speakers accepted the invitation. They are Josephine Yang (黃河芬 FAPA President of the Southern California Chapter) 洪英花 (well known Judge from Taiwan); Martin Tsai (Editor of TaiwanmUS.net); to complete the G-1 speaker list , we are still searching for the keynote speaker. With the help of Yamei Lee (a former president of NATWA, North American Taiwanese Women Association), five young people with outstanding credentials have accepted the invitations as G-2 speakers and moderators. Their names are: Cecilia Chueh, Chieh-Ting Yeh, Lily Wang, Julie Wu, Deana Chuang, Chris Lin. The short bios of all speakers will be posted on the website.

  3. The TAC-WC 2019 has organized two post-conference tours. Those tours are very popular. The northbound tour from Salt Lake City to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks is now full. The southbound tour to five NP in Southern Utah is still available but the bus seat is also filling up fast. The hotel cost of the southbound tour is rather reasonable compared with that of northbound. The  price for staying at the La Quinta Inn & Suites in  Moab [Telephone Number: 435-259-8700 or 1-866-527-1498; address:  815 South Main St., Moab, UT 84532], where the group shall stay on the evening of 7/21 has been renegotiated for the group rate of $154/room/night, including breakfast, not $165/room/night previously quoted in Announcement No.2.  For 7/22 and 7/23 the group will stay at Abbey Inn, Cedar City (address: 940 W 200 N, Cedar City, UT 84720.  Tel : 435-586-9966), with the group rate only of $110/room/night, breakfast included. Please mention that you are with the group TAC-WC when you call to book the rooms to receive the group discount rates for both hotels.

  4. Both tours last for five days, with the last day (7/25) to tour Salt Lake City. The City tour is originally scheduled to complete at 5 PM for both buses. In order to make it convenient for those who plan to leave Utah on 7/25, we plan to have one bus ends the tour at the airport at about 3PM, and the other bus will stop at the guesthouse at about 5PM for the members who plan to overnight on 7/25. Hope this will help the planning on purchasing the return airline tickets.

2019 Post-Conference Tour Fees details 會後旅行費用明細

Several members who signed up for either the northbound or southbound tour have asked about the fees for the tours.

The following fees are required:

No.ItemCost $Comment
1LodgingPay by yourselfBook and pay by yourself
2Bus and Tips$100 / person5 days (7/21-7/25)
3Driver's Expense (lodging and meals)$20 / person5 days (7/21-7/25)
4National Park Entrace FeesTo be paid on-site, depending on the negotiations with each siteSee explanation below
Total (excluding lodging and park fees)$120 / person

Detail explanations for individual item

  1. lodging arrangements are done by yourself.  If you haven’t done so, do it ASAP
  2. the costs for chartering the buses is $5,000 for each bus (including the gratuity) for 5 days (from July 21 to 25).  Each bus seats 50 persons. This amounts to $100/per person
  3. the driver’s lodging and meal expense for 5 days is tentatively budgeted at $200 per day for each diver. For a 5-day trip, it totals to $1000, which amounts to $20 per person for 50 seater bus
  4. Entrance fees to the national parks are still under negotiations. We will be collecting the park entrace fee from you on-site at individual park, depending on the final negotiation results.  The admission fee to each National Park. According to the published data, the Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton NP charges $300 for each commercial bus entering these NP.  I have tried to call to find out whether the fee could be waived for our group as we are members of a nonprofit organization which hires buses for taking post conference tours. But due to recent government shutdown that results in considerable backlog at the park service, my calls were not answered by the park service personnel at the Yellowstone NP. Admission fees to national parks in Utah are less, but for the same reason, I am unable to get a precise fee; the bus company from whom we charter the buses also do not know the fees. Thus, I could not give you information about the NP admission fee, and we need to prepare to pay on site at the park entrance. I suggest that if you own a lifetime admission permit such as the Golden Age Passport, bring it with you in case that you may need to use it.  

To guarantee a seat in the bus, please send a check of $120 ($100 for the charter bus plus gratuity, $20 for the driver’s living expense) made payable to TAC-WC and send the check to Ms. Angel Yang at  TAC-WC (Taiwanese American Conference-West Coast) c/o Ms Angel Yang, 650 Bellevue Way NE #3403, Bellevue, WA 98004, before March 31.

If you pay after that date, we will have to ask an additional 10% of late fee connected with doing additional administrative work. The northbound bus is currently full with a waiting list.  The southbound bus is half full; we strongly encourage you to sign up to visit those spectacular national parks, exploring the wilderness of canyons and fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries since time immemorial.

Direction from the SLC Airport to the University Guesthouse

 

After you exit the airport security area in Terminal 1, turn left (right side leads you to the luggage claim area) and walk all the way to the South end of Terminal 1 (passing United, Southwest Airlines check-in counters).  Then exit through glass doors to an area where two automated UTA Trax (light rail) ticket boot stands are. (see map location marked as 1).

Purchase the ticket (one Trax fare per ride for seniors is $1.25) and take the Green line train to Courthouse (see map location marked as 2).

Get off the Courthouse and wait for the Red line train across the platform to the Fort Douglas stop (see map location marked as 3) . Relevant red line stops are Library,Trolley. Stadium, which are the two stops before Fort Douglas, andUniversity Medical Center is the last stop.

Get off at the Fort Douglas stop. On the right side of the platform,  you will see a sky bridge.  Walk toward the elevator below the bridge and take the elevator upstairs connected to the head of the bridge. Walk across the bridge to the other side and then follow the sign to the University Guesthouse,  walking along sidewalks (bear left).  The total time from the trax platform to the Guesthouse should be around 5 minutes.

The total time of travel from the Airport is about 40 to 50 minutes, depending on the transfer time spent at the Courthouse
Going by Trax is the safest and cheapest way from the Airport to the University Guesthouse.  An alternative way is to go by taxi, which costs about $40-$45 plus tip.  Taxi takes about 30-35 minutes during non-rush hour with normal traffics.
