Principal members who are officially known as Ordinary Members and who have voting rights (along with a few Life Members)total about 3,700.

In one of the largest turnouts for such a meeting, 472 members

came for the Special General Meeting on Monday 22 March 2004,

packing the Churchill Room and much of the Main Lobby. The meeting started shortly after 6.00 pm with the President Dr Alex Ool presenting the proposal to adopt the Master Plan for the Club's future development. This was followed by another half hour

of Q&A, with some members seeking clarifications on the project, especially the financial aspects, and the voting procedures.

The Honorary Treasurer Philip Beng commented on the set of

figures presented in the printed brochure which, he said, was really a cash availability projection over the next eight years. He also

showed a revised presentation of the cash flow position if the project was based on a 3 to 4-year construction period, and costing $19m 323m.

Before the voting by secret ballot commenced, a proposal from the floor to postpone the voting was put to the members. This was narrowly defeated by a vote of 170 to 150. At the end of the evening, the votes were tallied and the results

announced by the General Manager were as follows:

On Resolution 1A (To adopt the Master Plan): Yes- 231 votes. No - 179 votes. Spoilt votes - 2. On Resolution 1B:

For Option 1 (Phase 1 costing $11 m)- 55 votes

For Option 2(Phases 1 & 2 costing $19m)- 82 votes For Option 3 (All 3 phases costing $23m)-93 votes Spoilt vote - 1.

On Resolution 2(In the event Resolution 1 was not carried, to proceed to consider one ofthe two other prize-winning designs): Yes- 187 votes. No - 172 votes. Spoilt vote - 1. The Tanglin Club 5

Live Performance - Friday 23 April In conjunction with the South African Wine & Food promotion, the Churchill Room will

present a South African Dinner with live performance by KUBASHA, entertainers from South Africa on the last day of the promotion on Friday 23 April.

KUBASHA: The Sound Of Rebirth The South African group that will be performing during the gala evening on Friday 23 April is KUBASHA. which means rebirth. This is a very fitting name because they represent the spirit of rebirth of South Africa since 27 April 1994. Rarely in the history of humanity was there such transparent reconciliation between a government that was

seen as the oppressor and those that were oppressed as happened in South Africa. This year, South Africans are celebrating the 10th anniversary or the country's rebirth and the performance on 23 April gives us.

He differs from the others in that he creates and makes them, and adds value to the chain by giving work to the people and channelling proceeds back to the local Nepalese community, in particular children in need. This is his purpose. Gerald hopes that people will be more conscious of what they are buying, and that his pieces will appeal to you.

It's Good Seeing Old Friends Appreciation Evening - 23 February 2004 Over 100 "senior" members and their spouses turned up in the Churchill Room on Monday 23 February for an informal buffet dinner for those who have been members for 35 years or more. As far as one can remember, this is the first time such a function

had been organised for these senior members. Many are in relatively good health, though a few needed the aid of a walking stick or wheelchair.

Delighted to be able to see so many old friends, they expressed gratitude to the Club for arranging the "Appreciation Evening".

The Tanglin Club renewed Its friendly rivalry with the Singapore Cricket Club on this particular Saturday in January. We were grateful for the fine weather after the damp of the previous months and managed to get in a number of good matches. SCC fielded a youthful team, which added that extra bit of"wham-bam" and sizzle to the exchanges. The Tanglin Ciub once again put up a gallant fight but sadly had to concede defeat to the better side for the afternoon, eventually going down 100 to 80. Mark Fernandas

Beeswax for example, are used in the production of candles, cosmetics, soaps and even capsules for medicine. Unlike common paraffin candles, which pollute the air with smoke, beeswax candles burn cleanly without dripping or smoking, have a sweet scent and emit negative ions, which help to clean the air of bacteria, viruses and dust mites. It burns longer due to a lower melting point. Before leaving for Uganda, Lesster had been a regular participant in the Jumbo Doubles Squash circuit in S.E. Asia, and had sorely missed these events. In February, Lesster made a visit here with Musisi and they became the first team from the African continent to play In The Tanglin Club International Doubles Tournament.
