Cabaret night 2013 (Taipei) – refurbished and new renovated, a sequel to Shanghai night

Cabaret Night can come alive again this year.

I wonder whether those who attended the last “Shanghai Cabaret Night 2010” still remember the event of glamour and nostalgia. Well, perhaps we can revive the occasion.

The owners of the last SHC Cabaret Jeffrey and Geraldine have just sold off their stakes to a rich tycoon couple.  Together, the couple run a few nightclubs in Shanghai. Hongkong, Singapore and Taipei.  The guests are mainly the rich and well-to-do and those who love drinks and songs.  Each night, limousines and rolls royce would stop at its main entrance.  A MRT train runs by the Cabaret.  Elegantly dressed ladies and huge pouch men, accompanied by body guards would turned up nightly at its doors.

There is fun and lots of money roll around each night. The stage is well set, with Chinese decor and dimmed lights.  Beautiful singers come on stage each night and they would sing songs to bring out memories of love, the past and nostalgia. There are also free lance ladies and guy dancers who can dance with the guests, for USD 5 per song.

Cabaret Night 2013 is a sequel to Shanghai Night 2010.  This is an evening of drinks, dancing, chit chat and business deals.  It’s also an evening to entertain your clients, whether you are a rich business tycoon or a lady boss running a chain of restaurants.

Of course, there is room for those who want a night out for drinks only, so as to forget the world of saddness, revenge and love loss.  Guests can end the evening with more drinks and Taiwanese porridge at the night market.

Guys and gals, this Cabaret night is a theme event.  The city is Taipei. Most Taipei people speak Mandarin, Min Nan (Hokkien) and some English.   This event is strictly and exclusive to SilverHairsClub members. The cabaret serves drinks, no food.  Tips of one USD is common to all service staff.  Mainly there will be songs, drinks, dancing and anything the worldly earth brings us.  Strictly no line dancing. Songs are mainly Mandarin, Hokkien, Cantonese and a few English.  The era is 1970s.  Bouncers will be at the door, so good behaviour, proper dressing.

Please note this event is themed around a nightclub cabaret, and not intended to support perceived negative morals.  The idea is to bring back the good old days, listen to old songs, good fun and enjoy the company of fellow SilverHairsClub members.

No details of the event yet.  Let’s plan together,perhaps over the next two months, and make it an event to relive past memories of the 70s.  Nothing has been set yet.  There is a likelihood this event will be held in June or July 2013, at the previous place where Shanghai Night 2010 was held.

Shanghai Night 2010 was held without conducting a single meeting, except for a couple of live singing trials. I look forward to Cabaret Night 2013 being conducted without a single meeting too. The exact date of the event will be announced, once the place and date are confirmed. All discussions will be held at the Club  You are invited to participate.

  1. Time certainly flies……’s been 3 years since.

    The opening nite was a full-house with our patrons turning up dressed up to the nines, our mamasan Sue with her lovely hostesses, our talented and awesome singers who joined us from other posh nite clubs. Sweet memory, indeed.

    Jeffrey and I wish the new owners the best of luck, the performers and patrons tons of fun.

    We are still showbiz and entertainment!!

  2. Hi Geraldine,

    The new Cabaret is undergoing rennovation, and hopefully, it will be up and ready by June/July.

    One of our members will be going down to the place to have a look and have a chat with the owners. If all goes well, we can firm up the date, sometime next week.

    Terence Seah

  3. Great, Terence, do let us know if all goes well.

    I am pretty certain members will support this event as they did with Shanghai Castle Nite Club.

    Still remember Ah Nee’s ‘big balls’ kekekekee ribbons for the ribbon cutting ceremony and Sweet Nor’s silver dish and scissors and all the members who helped out to make the event a success, not forgetting the EO Lily (whom you conveniently ‘assigned’ cuz you were busy with your used condoms, whatever, wherever you were at that time – what else is new? Bwahkakakakaa)who was very helpful to me across the miles.

    Your only ‘instruction’ to me via email was to do my opening speech in CANTONESE. FINE!! I delivered.

    Anxiously waiting, darling.

    ?????! Bet you don’t understand this. Mwah.

  4. Wow…hahaha….Geraldine, it was really FUN! Beside those big ribbon balls, the beautiful flower bouquets for the great singers too. :)

    Wonder who will be the new owner of the Nite Club after the renovation completed. It should be an ideal place for the rich “tow kay” to meet for business deal and drinking session with the beautiful hostesses. Oh wow…..the non-stop music and songs of the 60s. :) :)

    Thanks to Terence creative imaginary idea……I would be glad to sponsor those big balls for the grand opening of the new Nite Club and the beautiful bouquets again if this event is on. :) :) :)

  5. Hi everybody,

    The soon-to-be completed Cabaret, located in Central Taipei has just announced its launch date. Mega, whom many of you know, is the interior designer of the Cabaret; and he has been discussing with the owners for a possible start date. Well, the opening date for the Cabaret is Sat 20 July 2013.

    Thank you Mega for the initiative.

    Now, let your thoughts and ideas roll. We definitely need members to play different roles. We need many different roles, for example owners.

    For those who have been to Taipei, especially during the 70s, and who may have experience with nightclubs and cabarets, share with us if you like to take up a particular role.

    Terence Seah

  6. Here are some happenings with the Taipei Cabaret Night.

    Taipei has always been an attractive city to many Singaporeans, especially the bright lights, the Asian culture, the similar languages and dialects, the food and the songs.

    The owners of Taipei Cabaret Night got together last year. Two members have accepted playing the role of co-owners. They are Lim Tian Soo and Chee Lai Fong, both known to a number of SHC members. They have decided to build a new business in nightclubs and cabarets. We look forward to seeing them on Satu 17 July 2013 during the opening night.

    Hi Tian Soo and Lai Fong, thank you for agreeing to play the roles of co-owners. It would be nice if you introduce yourselves to your clientele, and how you got into the night entertainment business.

    And, to all fellow SHC members, please share your ideas too, fun and crazy ones too.

    Terence Seah

  7. While the interior designs are going on, there is a signboard outside the Cabaret. “Role opportunities available, please apply inside”.

    Gabriella Chua, age 23, is the first lady to apply for the role of freelance dancer. She takes this opportunity to learn how to be naughty. There are many available positions for freelance dancers. Those who have worked for the previous Cabaret owners are invited to rejoin.

    The owners are also looking for 2 mamasans to handle customer relations. Papasans also invited.

    Please do not be offended; we hope to make the theme as close to the cabaret or nightclub entertainment scene in Taipei in the 70s.

    Terence Seah

  8. Last Thursday, while meeting the badminton group, I chanced upon meeting Patrick Oei, who appears to be the right foreign talent. He speaks well, I think, in Min Nan (Hokkien), Cantonese and English. Confident and outgoing too.

    As the new HR manager, I asked if he would work for the Taipei Cabaret, which will open on Sat 20 July 2013. He looked at his diary, and agreed to be the Stage manager during the opening night. I think he is going to practise his Hokkien and Cantonese.

    The HR department is looking for a co-Stage manager, preferable a lady, semi-fluent in Hokkien, Cantonese and English.

    Both roles involve working with one another, follow up on the who’s who, the schedule, introduce the people coming to the stage, plus an element of making adjustments incase, things go wrong. You never know. We might have a blackout the whole night.

    Thank you Patrick for taking up this role.

    Terence Seah

  9. Today, we have a new applicant coming in to apply for the job of Registration desk manager. She is Wong Yoke Meng; and you will see her during the Cabaret launch night.

    Yoke Meng will be look for assistance to help her with registration; please raise your hand to join her team. Registration basically involves preparing the name list, tick attendance, selling dance tickets and accompanying the guests to their tables.

    Thank you Yoke Meng for taking on this exciting role, during our Cabaret night 2013.

    Terence Seah

  10. Taipei Cabaret is inviting applications for two mamasans. There will be two teams.

    a) Mamasan (Wild flower team)
    b) Mamasan (Moon over the lake team)

    Each mamasan will be in charge of a group of young ladies. Applicants are required to exercise strict control over the behaviour and performance of their team. Mamasans should be fair to their team; while at the same time, ensure that Cabaret clients are kept happy and keep spending throughout the night.

    Applicants may contact the owners, and write direct to the HR department.

    Terence Seah

  11. HI Terence/Patrick-O.

    Do u need singers? And can sing english song or not?

    Cheers, Lydia.

    1. Hi LydiaC #11,

      We have not decided on whether we will have a live band or a DJ. Discussions are still going on. If we have a band, the band should be familiar with mainly Mandarin, Hokkien and some Cantonese/English songs. No decisions yet.

      Once decided, we can decide if we have singers. This explains why no announcement on singers yet.

      Keep your suggestions coming, you may also send your suggestions to Mega.

      Terence Seah

  12. Announcement on the Cabaret night 2013 (Taipei):

    We have a number of responses for a live band to perform at our Cabaret night 2013. Thank you to those who have made the effort. It has taken us a long time to make our minds up. If we do not use your service this time, keep in touch, and we will do so another time.

    I now like to confirm Edwin Chen, whom we will contract to perform for our Cabaret night (Taipei) 2013. He will be our one-man band, fluent in Hokkien and Mandarin songs. He has also been asked to play a few Cantonese and English songs, all from the 70s. I think he is 70; but he is fantastic and good at what he does, playing music.

    No, this solves the question of whether we will have live music. Our plan next is to have live singers. We should now be looking for someone to coordinate this part of the work. I am aware many members complain and feel that I can only talk and delegate, and do not do the actual work. Well, this is true; but that is because I am not good at singing, play music or even do other thing at all. But also, i am always not around most of the time.

    I am now looking for a song and music coordinator. Male or female, over 45. The person must be familiar with popular Hokkien (Min Nan Hua), Mandarin, some Cantonese and some English songs, all from the 70s. Songs should be romantic, hate, sad, memorable, able to inject good emotions, and popular. Must read up on the Taipei Entertainment scene in the 70s.

    As we will be having live singers, the coordinator must be fair, and able to accept and reject appropriate songs suitable for the mood and environment.

    Of course, the coordinator can also sing if he/she likes to. Time is limited; I can roughly see we have a time frame from 7pmm to 1am. What we hope to have is non-stop music, non-stop dancing, non-stop songs and non-stop drinking. So, guys and gals, please apply. Write to me at

    Let’s move on.

    Terence Seah

  13. Now, that we have Edwin Chen who will be playing and accompanying our singers at our coming Cabaret night, we can move on quickly.

    I like inform everybody that Mega Abdullah is now the co-EO of our Cabaret night 2013 (Taipei). Mega was the person who raised the idea of having another Cabaret night. At that time, it was also called Shanghai night. He mooted the idea, and we had a very short discussion during our trip to Thailand/Laos.

    After coming back from the holidays, he quickly contacted the management of The Tanjung, quickly choop the date and have a review of the place. Mega has been in touch all this while, and now that many of the key roles are filled, we can move on.

    Thank you Mega for volunteering to be the co-EO of his highly exciting Cabaret night, this time in Taipei. Feel free to chat and talk with him too.

    The HR department is now looking for two mamasans, 1 co-stage manager and one song and music director.

    Do write to me if you would like to take up this role. I am very sure you will do a good job.

    Terence Seah

  14. The role of the Song and Music coordinator has now been assigned to Caroline Gee.

    Our theme for this year’s cabaret Night is Night entertainment at the new Cabaret in taipei. 70% of the songs will be in Mandarin and Hokkien and 30% English and Cantonese. All from the 70s.

    Caroline sings Hokkien and Mandarin songs; especially those from the 70s. Since the idea of the Cabaret night 2013 was mooted, she has started to research on the popular songs. I appreciate the effort and time spent. We can now ask our HR department to put up advertisements to engage singers.

    The role of the song and music manager is to select and choose appropriate songs for the Cabaret. Songs should be romantic, sad, hateful, lustful, love and nostalgic. Important also is the songs must be danceable to the music of the then 70s. I have no dancing queen, so Caroline will issue most of the guidelines.

    I think I will be back to Spore in 3-4 weeks, will meet Edwin Chen with Mega (co-EO) and Caroline. Likely practice sessions will be held at Edwin’s place.

    For Cantonese songs, Caroline is liaising with Janet Chan.

    So, singers, the HR department will announce soon. Most details will be up in the Club.

    Thank you Caroline for volunteering to take up this role.

    Terence Seah

  15. Caroline Gee has realised that she wont be available during the Cabaret night. This is understandable. Thank you for volunteering in the first stage.

    I am pleased to announce that Judy Lim will be taking over the role of Music and song condinator. Some of us may know that Judy was the EO for the Hokkien karaoke event. Thank you Judy, and I look forward to meeting up with you with Mega and Edwin Chen (our musician) when I get back to Singapore before the end of March.

    Thank you Judy.

    Terence Seah

  16. Hi Terence,

    AS I was busy this morning in the office, I am not aware that Terence had mentioned in the post that I will be taking over the role in the music and songs condinator.

    Fist of all, I would like to emphazise that the EO for the “Hokkien Karaoke Night” should be Sally Tan and instead of me, I only assist in the registration.

    When I receiving email by Terence to help up in the Cabaret Night 2013, my intention is to help up show my appreciation to his efforts and hardwork contributed to the SHC all these year. Althought I am familiar with the Mandarin and Hokkien Songs, I am not too sure what are the songs in the year of 1970. I was thankfuly the encouragement by sister – Susan Chan and the kind offer by Ronnie and Susan C.H.Tan to help me up in the role. I will do my best to assist with all the committee in this event and hopefully to achieve another success event in Cabaret Night 2013.



  17. Hi everybody, and singers,

    If you would like to sing live during the Cabaret night (Taipei 2013), please do let us know as soon as possible. You may also contact Judy Lim. There is a closing date, likely 31 May 2013.

    Terence Seah

  18. Hi Terence,

    I can sing (Mandarin & Hokkien) & dance. I am not too sure what dance you require but I am keen to pick up a new dance if required. I am familiar with Social, Latin & Ballroom dances. I also do K-pop dances. I have a group of ladies who does performances. Let me know how can I fit in?



  19. Hi ChristinaT #20,

    Judy Lim will announce the details for the singers soon. I am sure it will be exciting for both singers and dancers.

    You might like to know that this event is strictly for members only.

    Terence Seah

  20. The Cabaret night (Taipei 2013) is scheduled on Sat 20 Jul 2013.

    1. Mega and myself will be going to the Tanjung which is the venue for our Cabaret night this Friday. We plan to work on the drinks and the use of the premises and equipment. It is likely that we will be able to decide on the cost price per pax for this evening event.

    A number of members are working in the background to make this event a truly memorable and enjoyable event. They have been doing the coordinating work and planning.

    2. Some of the planning committee will be meeting up with Edwin Chen who will be playing for us during the Cabaret night. We hope to discuss the songs and music concept next week.

    If your diary is free that evening, keep a date.

    Terence Seah

  21. Last night, both Mega (co-EO) and myself met up with the manageress of The Tanjung at One North, Slim Barracks Rise. We had confirmed the booking of the dance hall for Sat 20 July 2013. This was the venue of our last Cabaret night (Shanghai).

    Here’s a few points to share with you.

    1. We are making arrangements for SHC members to sing to live music during the night. This music segment will be played by Edwin Chen, a one man keyboard musician. This is still subject to our approval, after Mega, Judy and myself meet up with Edwin after the 19 April.

    We intend to focus on an all night singing and dancing until 1am.

    Members who wish to sing, please contact Judy Lim and the people who have helped to assist her.

    2. It is likely that we will also engage the services of the local DJ who has been playing at the venue on Saturday night. Thank you to Mega for the recommendation. As seen from last night, I am impressed. The DJ can play 70s Taiwanese (Hokkien) songs, Mandarin songs, Cantonese and English songs. However, our focus will be Taiwanese songs and dacning non-stop.

    3. We are likely to charge $25 per head, excluding hard drinks. We are also considering a simple buffet, but currently, the plan is for “No dinner”.

    For those who register before the closing date, the price is likely to be $20 per head, based on the registration list on this Post. All participants must be registered SHC members. Non SHC members rate is $30 per pax.

    The closing date for registration is 31 May 2013.
    Last day for payment is 10 June 2013 ($20 per pax). Thereafter, at $25 for members.

    Thank you for those who have offered their help to make this event workable.

    Terence Seah

  22. The registration for tickets for Cabaret Night 2013 (Taipei) starts today. If your diary is available, do join other members for this once-in-a few-years event.

    A map of the seating arrangement at the newly rennovated nightclub will be sent to us soon. Members are encouraged to book the seats once the map is available. In other words, if a sofa lounge can take 10 people, you are encouraged to book your table of 10 (with 10 names). If the table sits 4, then book a group of 4.

    If you are coming alone, you may choose your seat, whichever is available.

    From experience with the last Cabaret night, we had some unhappiness over where the nightclub guests sit. To avoid unhappiness, priority will be given as follows, based on registration:

    1. The Platinum mmeber of each table. He/she forms a table, of at least 10 members, based on the table plan. FCFS.

    2. The Gold member who has a big wallet, with a minumum of 4 guests at the table.

    3. The Silver member who is in the committee or a singer. He/she can form any number of guests at the table.

    A treasurer will be appointed soon.

    There will be other new announcements soon for the program. This Cabaret night will be based on the theme of night entertainment in Taipei during the 70s. This is organised specially for you, so do share any ideas you have, so that we can put them into the program.

    Do offer to raise your hand, if you wish to work in the committee. This is the best way to know and meet more friends.

    Terence Seah

  23. Hi Terence
    You mentioned some unhappiness over seating…I also heard grumblings.
    Hope this venue gives all tables an unobstructed view of the stage.

    2-cts’ worth

  24. Hi Terence & Mega

    I would like to book a table for 10. TQ

    Latest update on my job application in the cabaret:

    I realise that I cannot accept the post of naughty girl/freelance dancer and wishes to withdraw my application.

    Will submit the names of the kakis on my table soon.

    Thanks & regards,

    1. Due to interest in getting reservations and registration done, please indicate your interest on this Post. For fairness, reservations via email would not be accepted.

      Hi Jassmine, I am not sure if we can move the beams or the speakers, or the positions of the tables and sofas. Seat and tables will be based on registration and payment, and confirmed names. I assume most participants will be on the floor.

      terence seah

  25. Cabaret Night 2013 has just recruited Gabriella Chua to take charge of the tables and seating. However, we are awaiting the map of the newly furbished lounge before allocating the seats and tables. Thank you Gabriella for volunteering and agreeing to help in the event.

    Gabriella will also be in charge of the registration desk during the night of the event. Should you wish to assist her, please let us know here or contact her directly.

    Priority will be given as per comment #24.

  31. Hi Terence,

    You mentioned on your comment #24 that a table of 4 seats can be reserved by a Gold Member with a big wallet, am not sure if that means we ought to give big tips? Or can I still qualify to book for this category of seats since I do not have a big group.


    1. Hi Sue,

      You are definitely qualified for the Gold member category. Form a group. The key is priority of registration.
      This is to enable you to pick your table, once the map is available.

      Who are you tipping?

      Terence Seah

    Application for this post is now closed.

    Tks & regards,

  40. Hi EOs,

    I would like to ask a question. Since this event is “Strictly members only”, why is there a need to say “Non-Members $30 per head” Is it not a contradiction ? Or does “Non-Members” mean something else ?

  41. Hi EdwinT #46,

    You are right. The rule is SilverHairsClub EO events are always for members only. So, the rate for non-members is contradicting.

    I am not sure what was in my mind when I put it up there. I must have a reason after I went over the feedback from our last Shanghai night a few years ago. Getting old. Let’s leave it there for now.

    1. The cabaret night has now recruited two very talented members to be part of our
      Cabaret. They are Patrick Oei and Lyndy Chua. In fact, they are a husband and wife team.

      I met Patrick at a badminton lunch and Lyndy at one of Johnny Pow’s eat sessions. Both of them are fluent in
      Chinese and dialects, are friendly and crowd pullers. I like to thank them for being our stage managers. I am sure the Cabaret night will be fun.

      Please book your tickets. Gabriella will confirm the seats when she is back.

  67. Hello Christina Tan PG,

    Welcome to SHC and Taipei Cabaret Night!!
    Since you are new, especially not knowing who to sit with at our Taipei Cabaret Night, I would like to invite you to sit with my group at either Table 1, 2 or 3. Our sitting arranging is not fixed, therefore I can let you sit with a group that you’ll be comfortable with… what say you?


  68. Hi Gabriella,

    I guess we are all wating eagerly for the lounge map. Let’s wait for Mega to come and he will follow up on it.

    Meantime, my table will be 5 ie Terence Seah, Joe Choo, Veronica Lee, Patrick Oei and Linda Chua.

    You have access to make changes to the guests list.

    Terence Seah

  69. Hi Terence

    Not sure how to use the edit button. Unable to find any.

    Perhaps, you or someone can come to my rescue – ie advise on the procedure on this blog?


  70. Hi Terence

    Noted your comments above.

    Yes, just found the edit button. Will try soon and have fun!


  71. Hi Guests,

  72. Hi Boon Liang,

    Ten Choy Leng is a non-member.

    Non-members names are not allowed on this forum. So, their names will be replaced as “Non-members”.

    Terence Seah

  73. Judy Lim and Janet Chan must have been doing a lot of work in the background, organising the singers and the song list. I am not aware. Thank you for the effort.

    Next, we are going to visit Edwin Chen, our musician and we hope to finalise how we are going to handle the live music and songs. This will help us plan some practice sessions.

    Last call, if you would like to sing Hokkien or Mandarin songs of the 70s, or a couple of Cantonese or English songs, please indicate here or let Judy know.

    Terence Seah

  74. hi Pearl,

    I am an easy person, you decide I will blend in. Thank you so much!

  75. Hi Christina Tan PG,

    Good to know you are easy with the sitting arrangement.
    Will show you where to sit on the event night, meanwhile…
    do email me your contact number so that we can stay in touch.
    Mmm… we are not allowed to post contact numbers here.

    Thanks for joining us!

  76. Hi One Eye Tycoon Terence!

    Wd appreciate if you could advise where the Cabaret Owner, Lim Tian Soo will be seated? What about Edwin Chen, our musician? Sitting at your table?

    Thanks & regards,

  77. Hi Terence,
    Ten Choy Leng has already signed up as member on 10 April 2013.

    1. Hi Boon Liang,

      Please request Ten Choy Leng to contact the re membership.
      Thank you.

      And, I shall remove the $30 for non-members fee. Apology for the confusion everybody.
      I was not expecting such good response. The Cabaret night is strictly for SilverHairsClub members.

      Terence Seah

  78. Hi SHC members (Guests of Taipei Cabaret)

    I know there are quite a number of VIP guests who have not booked yet …….

    Hurry while seats last !

    Looking forward to your booking ASAP.

    Fondest regards,
    Front Desk
    Taipei Cabaret

  79. Hi Gariella,
    Since Terence changed his mind on non-members,
    please exclude Catherine Soh & Esther Tan from my Table 3.

    Thank you!

  80. Hi Boon Liang, Ann, Edwin and fellow guests,

    First, I must apologise to participating guests who have been inconvenienced by my position on restricting participation to “Strictly members” and the “Non-members”. Right at the beginning, I had wanted the Cabaret night event to be open to SHC members only. However, I was concerned that the numbers may be too few, and that I may have to allow in non-members at a later date. This was how we peg the rate for non-members at $30. Edwin did raise this confusion, but at that time, I felt that I would still keep a difference between members and non-members rates, if our participation rate is low.

    Second, a few members wrote to me, highlighting that my confusion has caused unnecessary confusion and they were inconvenienced as they have supported the event, and have informed their friends who were non-members. The reasons they gave me were valid. I guessed I was too rigid on this position.

    On this note, I shall honour what our members have committed to their friends; and accept the non-members as our guests during the Cabaret night. The non-member rate applies.

    On going, no further non-members will be accepted. Again, my apology for the confusion.

    Terence Seah

  81. Hi Pearl

    As requested, I have excluded Catherine Soh and Esther Tan. Hope my understanding is correct.

    May I suggest that Christina Tan PG be seated on your third table which has 9 guests now? Would appreciate your advice ASAP.

    Tks & regards,

  82. Hi Gabriella,
    Do register me too .. i can be seated at Pearl’s 3rd table . Cheers,.

  83. Hi Gabriella,
    Yes, you are correct to exclude my two classmates from Sweden.
    I had put them on ‘tentative’ as they cant confirm their flight back yet,
    so .. its ok that they cant join us.

    Yes, Christina Tan PG & Clara Chay can be seated at my 3rd table.
    Thanks Clara for joining us and thanks Gabriella for the corrections
    and additions. Appreciated!


  84. Hi Pearl

    Updated accordingly. Added Clara Chay and Christina Tan PG to your third table.

    Interested to hear that you are pretty new to SHC events. I just noticed you have been a member since July 2005. Welcome to the gang.

    Terence Seah

  87. Hi Terence,

    Thanks for reply.

    You may have record of my joining SHC since 2005 but sorry to say I’ve NEVER participated in any SHC events until sometime last year on a very adhoc basis. You may wanna ascertain this. As such I qualify myself as pretty new, not to
    SHC but to SHC EVENTS as indicated.
    Hope to get to know more fellow members @ this event!!
