Starting Aug 2014, we launch “Boom Boom”, a monthly online game on this forum

fun1gamesprizes

Starting Aug 2014, we shall have a competition in the Club each month.  It’s easy for members to participate.  Simply answer two questions, and if you are the first to answer the two questions correctly, you will get to win a prize.  The winner is decided, based on the first person to respond correctly.  Only one prize per member per year.

  • One of the questions is likely a general or current affairs question.
  • The other question is related to the Club and the answer can likely be found in the Club or in the Club forum.

We have a number of prizes which have been kindly donated by members, responding to our requests.  They are mainly vouchers, which can be sent to the winner via registered Post.  Some are entry tickets, perfume vouchers, restaurant vouchers, etc.  Winners will be asked to send their address to admin@SilverHairsClub.com. Thank you for the gift donations.

So, watch out for the first game.  It will be announced as a Post on this forum.  You are invited to help me organise this game.

Strictly for members.

Badminton on Thursdays at Bukit Gombak

Hi All, the badminton group has been quite regular – since April/May 2012. It is steadily growing with the regulars and not-so-regulars, from East to West (and all over Singapore), congregating at Bukit Gombak Stadium on Thursdays from 10.00am to 12.00 noon. We have increased to 2 courts, that means a total of 4 hours of play.        For the coming weeks, we will have coaching sessions for the weaker players. This is to improve the standards of play – but it is OPTIONAL. We welcome players of ALL skills/standards. Our routine is to play, chit-chat, laugh, play, CHEER/JEER – then shower (bring your own hot water and soap)- then lunch (at your own expense) across the road. Sometimes, we have more elaborate ones (thanks to the drivers amongst us.) Come join us, get to know us – players /non-players – or just have coffee/lunch. Latest Attraction – meet our handsome COACHES emoticon who will teach you new badminton tricks…

A “Family Day” in the thinking, before end 2012

Ever since the Club started, we have always maintained that all its activities can only be attended by members, and that attendees must be 45 and over.  This rule will continue to be adopted.

However, many SHC members are still young, and may have young children or grandchildren to look after. There are also cases where their brothers and sisters are still young, below 45.  And, of course, there are the grandfathers or grandmothers who are not able to participate in SHC; but from time to time, may want to enjoy a family day, with other grandparents.

The objective of the Family Day is to provide an occasion and place whereby family members get to meet other family members over a 2D1N or 3D2N affair.

  1. First, as a rule, we will continue to maintain the over 45 age and events can only be attended by registered members.
  2. Second, after some feedback from senior members, I am thinking that we can have a Family day.  This will be held once a year; we can have a committee.  Venue and price will have to be approved, prior to the acceptance of a Family Day.  In principle, the cost should be reasonable and low. Activities will be organised by an organising committee.  Every item or event must be organised by a SHC member, no external individuals or company.
  3. Third, the Family day will be open to members of SilverHairsClub, their brothers, sisters, grandfather and grandmother, children and grandchildren.
  4. Fourth, where possible, during the Family Day, there should be events for SHC members who come along and want to meet up with other SHC members only.

To set the ball rolling, and to set the concept right from the beginning, I would take the lead in the first Family Day.  Future EOs of family day will be appointed.  So, let’s get the ball running.

  • The first event will have to be held where there is a seaside.  There should also be a swimming pool.
  • The dates should cover a (Fri, Sat or Sun) or (Sat, Sun or Mon).
  • The venue should have accommodation, twin, family or dorm.
  • Food and drinks should be provided by the venue; or organised by the committee.  Eats can include BBQ, buffets, and cooking sessions.
  • Accepted young activities should include beach and water games, ball games, swimming pool, athlete sports, walks, card and indoor games.  An event will only proceed if there is an organiser or activity leader.
  • Accepted adult activities can include karaoke, talentime, meditation, talks, grooming, dancing, fishing or snorkelling.
  • There should be no plans for shopping or city tours.

We will take the next two months to work on the following:

  • The location, which would be outside Singapore, maybe in Johore.
  • We would target 80 pax in two coaches or even 120 pax in three coaches.
  • Preferably outside rainy season.
  • A target price would be SGD 100 or lower per person, twin sharing.  A discount for participants staying in shared accommodation.
  • The date should be this year, before end 2012.
  • If you like to volunteer to organise an activity, feel free to raise your hand.

Let’s crack and brainstorm, from now to 15 Aug 2012.  Thank you to members who did the initial groundwork and discussion.

Terence Seah

Updates:

 

  1. Members can pool car resources and drive to the Family day.  The coach fee will be taken off. Do share the petrol and toll fees.
  2. The most likely venue for now is Desaru area.

Swimming, anyone?

The doctor give me six weeks to improve my diet and bring down my glucose level from 13 to 7 otherwise I will go on the needle. This is a challenge to myself whether I can avoid it.

Last night I dream of the dread needle and break out in cold sweat and this morning I pull myself out of bed and headed for Safra Mount Faber for 10 laps of freestyle and breast stroke. I reckon I will need to do it every morning from 8:00am to 8:30am. No more late nights as I normally sleep at about 2:00am, have to hit the sack before midnight. 

I need moral support here, anyone with similar concern would like to join me? We will have it here at Safra and if there is any other venue convenience do let me know. We may consider any other day of the week or other timing.

Swimmingly yours,

Dan

World Cup games and draw results 2010

I am useless when it comes to football. But, I do know that the World Cup draws the attention of half the world.

Spain has not been beaten in 26 games.  Only 7 teams have ever won the World Cup.  They are Uraguay, Brazil, Argentina, Italy, Germany, England and France.

Current holders are Italy.  Best African team is Ivory Coast.  Best team never to win the cup is Holland.  Worst is New Zealand.

Please see if you can think and work out a World Cup game for us to follow through.  I think it will be enjoyable.  Then, we can all play.

Calling the TimL and the HenryY.

All SHC Members…. SHC Games 2007 have finally closed its curtain with many smiles and lots of laughters from those who attend the event at CSC @ Bt Batok.  Despite of the heavy downpour, turnout was almost 90% and some of those not registered also turned up to support this event.

Games Day started as early as 8.00am as the committee members busy to do up the banner to officiate the event at the foyer area.  It was later raining dogs and cats and most of us were quite doubtful if we can expect a 50% turnout.  To our relief, we saw group of member arriving around 8.30am thus making us very happy indeed.  By 8.45am, registration hit a good 70% turnout. 

5stones, scrabble and chaptek competition started off.. Both 5stones and chaptek had more players than original registered players as many members signed up to take up the challenge on the spot.. It was a indeed a great fun playing the games of our day… More members turned out as rain quietly left us to enjoy  🙂

Bowling started off abit late as amendment of names need to be corrected but nevertheless members got their hands on bowling.. Wow wow.. so many hidden talents but also lots of fun and laughters as many members are first time bowlers (especially in the ladies’), rolling away in longkang but still happy cos they really enjoyed this…  Games ended around 12.45pm.  After that, all members proceeded to the foyer area for the Grand finale and prize presentation.

Limbo rock music was on the air and members were encouraged to limbo their ways thru.. of cos, to certain height level only la.. if not, alot of cracking sound can be heard.. hehehehe… Participation for this event was spontaneous and one can see that almost everyone was taking part in this… Prize presentation was conducted after the limbo rock event and the winners in each categories is summarized as below:  

Champion for Scrabble : Joyce Tan

Champion for Chaptek : Molly Chua      Runner Up : Ronald Lee

Champion for Bowling (Men)  : Tim Liu       Runner Up : Philip Puspalm
