    Revision to Minimum Spending Levy

    Since Financial Year (FY) 2010/2011, the Club has been running a deficit. While FY 2016/2017’s $3.172 million deficit was a slight improvement over the previous year’s, the Club is not yet able to stem the depletion of its reserves.

    The contribution from our Lucky Strike is expected to dip further with the implementation of the new jackpot regulatory rules that will kick in later this year.

    Therefore, it is absolutely essential for our sustainability and survival to turn around the Club’s finances and this has to be done with great urgency. We have already made some tough decisions in the past year such as the closing of D’Sports to reduce operational costs but they are not enough. More have to be done to boost our revenue.

    At this year’s Annual General Meeting on 21 May, the Management Committee discussed with the 540 members in attendance on some possible means to arrest the Club’s endemic deficit to restore its financial health. The item to increase MSL gained support from members who felt that it is an equitable way to improve the Club’s revenue, as all members will be contributing towards it rather than only a particular membership segment.

    The Management Committee has since deliberated at great length on the amount of increase in MSL. The following revision to MSL will take effect from 1 September 2017 (Friday):

    MSL (per quarter)

    New* ($)

    The increase in income from the MSL hike will not be able to totally curb and offset the fund drain every year. As such, we look to you for more patronage to our F&B outlets, and more support on our paid events and activities while the Club Management continues to be prudent in spending and seek innovative approaches to cut cost.

    We ask for your kind understanding and support in the matter.

    Return of Crockery and Cutlery After Meals

    We have spotted stray cats and other vermin feeding on the leftover food at the Cabana and Delicatessen.

    We urge members to return all crockery and cutlery to the tray-return booth at the Delicatessen and dispose of all leftover food in the trash. 

    We also ask members to refrain from feeding the stray cats.

    Let us work together to keep the Club a safe and hygienic place for all to enjoy. Your co-operation is greatly appreciated.
