    Guest Rooms UpdateIn the December edition of our Club magazine, I shared with you that the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) granted us approval to construct more rooms in the former spa located on the 5th floor of the Sports Complex. Since then, we prepared the Tender specifications and progressed through our Tender process. We will be evaluating the submissions this month, and in the near future, we will be sharing the submission highlights with you, along with the business case, to assist you with your evaluation of our upcoming proposal.

    Maintaining the Club StandardOn a final note, in response to Member sentiment that the Club is too accessible to non-Members, we recently asked Management to enforce proximity card access to the Sports Complex, restrict Singapore resident Reciprocal Club Members from accessing the Club, and generally to ensure that Members sign in their Guests. We kindly seek your cooperation and support to ensure the comfort, safety, security and exclusivity of our Club. I would also like to share that March 2016 will see us restrict all guest parking to the Sports Complex, on a three-month trial. This will help us better control non-Member access. The Committee encourages you to please read future updates on these important matters and to ensure that your guests understand Clubhouse Rules. Collectively, we seek your support to ensure we uphold our Clubs high standards. Once again, Happy New Year. The General Committee looks forward to serving you in 2016.

    Yours faithfully

    P r e s i d e n t s M e s s a g e

    Dear Fellow Members

    Happy New YearTheres a renewed enthusiasm in the air and a freshness that comes with welcoming the new calendar year. I am joined by the General Committee, in wishing you and your family a very happy and prosperous 2016. As a Committee, weve now served you about eight months and we promise you continued progress in the months ahead. As your President, it was a privilege to host the annual Tree Lighting. It is truly a fantastic tradition and wonderful to see our Community come together for this special occasion. The sheer enjoyment on the faces of Members, some young and some not so very young, was heartening. A special thank you to our very own Tanglin Choir; they sung brilliantly. For a glimpse of the merry-making, weve included a two-page spread of the highlights on pages 31-32. Introducing Tang YunWe were delighted to have received about 150 submissions from Members in response to our naming contest. We formulated our new name by blending two submissions to arrive at Tang Yun. On behalf of the Committee, I would like to invite you all to join us Saturday, 30 January, for Tang Yuns Grand Opening. The Lion Dance will commence at 11.28am sharp, and will be followed by delicious samples from our new Chinese restaurant culinary team. Business Centre/TanglesWith the relocation of the Administration Office from the Main Clubhouse to the 4th level of the Sports & Recreation Complex, the refurbishment of our Function Rooms (Raffles, Claymore and Draycott), and the completion of our Chinese Restaurant, our design focus shifts toward the final two components of the SGM-approved $2.5 Million project the Business Centre, and Tangles Cafe. The House and Development and Planning Sub-Committees, joined by management, are busy assessing floor plan options. We will be updating you in due course. LibraryI would also like to thank those of you who shared your views about the new Library design. We have taken on board some of the feedback and incorporated changes like: more soft seating, warmer wood tones and the removal of the contemporary feature carpet. Whilst effecting these changes has caused a slight delay, it is important, process-wise, that we do so. As a General Committee, we are listening carefully to Member feedback and have acted accordingly to ensure optimum Member satisfaction. The Tender Documents were revised, and a Tender call was published in the Newspaper. Well continue to keep you posted on our progress.

    Fellow Members,

    What a busy year 2015 has been for the Club! On top of the 150th anniversary celebration events that were happening throughout the year, the following charity events were organised in the Club as well:

    In the month of May, the Golf Section organised a golf charity event, and raised $39,496 for the Special Olympics Singapore. Also in the month of May, the Dance Section held a dance event, and ra
