  1. We have to create more activities for the club. Our objective is to provide a platform for members to meet new friends as well as old ones.

    Based on our club sizes, we can organise activities fast. Exploring Singapore MRT network is a good example.

    Of course, we need hands to volunteer organise activities.

    We can expand our membership which is free and lifetime. Our rules stay.

    Go ahead and form small groups.

    Participate and join our activities. You too can be an EO.

    Terence Seah

  2. Update:

    Participants in Explore MRT network can start anytime between 7am and 5pm during any day in July. Your group of 4 has to decide.

    Good to form your group early.
