Greetings from the Club President and the General Committee.
Here I am once again with a short report on the goings-on at our esteemed Club.
The AGM is over and we have three new faces in the General Committee - Messrs. Baskaran Nair, Dennis Ang and Sushendran - in addition to the return of Dr. George Bolze as the Commodore. We welcome the new Committee members and appreciate their intention to serve the members. Having seen them work in the GC for a month now, I am confident that their enthusiasm and ideas will invigorate the activities at the Club and take the GC’s performance a notch or two higher.
We also take this moment to thank the 3 outgoing office-bearers, Mr. Anthonysamy, Lt. Col. Joseph Rajah and Madam Nanda Kumari who all performed more than satisfactorily as Sports Chairman, Entertainment Chairman and Library/Gym/Website Chairperson, respectively. They should certainly return to the Committee at some points in the future in whatever position, so that their valuable experience can be put to use for the betterment of our Club.
At the same AGM, all our proposed Capital Expenditure projects and Resolutions were approved unanimously. The 2014 Accounts and 2016 Financial Budget too were passed with minimal fuss.
Now for the Beer prices. Last month, the GC met with both Brewers’ representatives in different meetings to sort out the price of beer, post GST. There is no possibility for now of the Draught prices coming down and they will remain at RM7.80 per mug for both Carlsberg and Tiger. But the bottle prices have dropped. Therefore, w.e.f. June 1st , Carlsberg bottle will reduced at our Bar by RM1.00 to RM7.40, Tiger bottle by 60 sen to also RM7.40 and Anchor bottle by 40 sen to RM6.60/-. There are also some other minor reductions. All these prices are pre GST. Members can rest assured that any further price deductions realised at purchase will be shared with the consumers.
Some of you may have noticed that the two containers next to the Children’s Playground are no longer there. They were originally procured for the sailing section but had outlived their utility many years ago and have only been remaining there obstructing the view. We thank Mr. Lawrence Yeow, who is the President of NESSA, for gracefully helping with our request to relocate them.
On the F&B side, the Employment Contract of our F&B Executive Mr. Sukhdev has been renewed for another year ending in June 2016. We are also in the midst of studying the Quotes of those who have bid for Catering contract which expires on 30th June. The Admin Office is still pursuing the recruitment of the 4 waiters from Kerala who worked for us last year. To ease the congestion at the Bar on weekend, the GC has decided to introduce some tall Bar Tables and Chairs at the section currently taken up by the easy chairs and round tables. This decision was taken after consultation with several members who are most regular at the Bar.
