1. Multi Racial Nite Review

Chairman raised the issue whether food was sufficient as he noticed some CCMC members did
not wish to eat from the buffet for fear of insufficient food catered. Tahar remarked that food was
sufficient and even had leftovers. In future, it was suggested that at such events, we must invite
CCMC members as well as guests to eat first.

Chairman thanked band groups Carnation, Mysterians and Red Hornet for making the event a
success. Members suggested that all band groups to have smart dress code in future
performances so as to present a more professional image.

2. Parent’s Day Dance Party 24 May 2008

This is a joint event with WEC and Lim Kian Kian gave a brief on what the party is about.
Chairman then invited the band leaders to volunteer for the evening’s performance and to revert
to him within the week on who is available to play on that night. The selected bands will get one
month’s free studio practice time.

The Music Club has been allocated 50 tickets for the evening. Chairman then allocated the 50
tickets to the following band leaders:
Loo Eng Soon, Raj Segar, Phil Lim, M. Tahar and Shanti Kumar. Each bandleader is to take 1
booklet worth $60 in ticket value and to pass the money to Kian Kian once it has been fully sold.

                                      Tanglin Music Club
3. New Equipment Purchase

All members are happy with the new equipment in the studios. Chairman announced that from
May 2008 onwards, CC staff will be involved in the handing and taking over of studio bookings.
They shall be following the band members when they hand back the keys for the studios. This is
basically to note any equipment that has broken down or not in good working condition. A new
form has been designed by the CC for this purpose and will be implemented once it is ready.

Frank Wong suggested that guitar strings, straps, jacks, drumsticks and other small equipment
items be made available for sale at the CC counter as these items are always needed by members
urgently when they come for practice. Chairman thinks this is a good suggestion and will look
into this matter.

4. New Blues Jam Slot

A new slot has been allocated for Blues Jam. It shall be on Saturday afternoons between 2 pm to
6 pm at the Red House. The Jam Master is Louis Lam and Chairman encouraged all members to
support the jam if they are available.

The Blues Jam session will act as a platform for promoting Blues music with talks, workshops
and generally catering to the Blues musicians of the club. The 2IC for the slot shall be Raj Segar.

5. New Bands

Chairman announced that 4 new bands have joined the Music Club:
   1. Hosanna
   2. Broadband
   3. Mott The Hooper
   4. Cheyenne

Details are attached in the band list of this minutes.

6. Events for June 2008

Chairman suggested having another band event in June 2008 and the date will be confirmed later
after checking with dates available from CC. Some of the musical instruments shall be auctioned
off during this event. Details will be revealed next month.

There have been complaints to our advisor from residents in the neighborhood that the volume of
our music is too loud in the evenings. Hence, all future events will have to reduce their volume
and finish at 10 pm.

                                        Tanglin Music Club
6. Other Matters

All band leaders suggested having a Tanglin Music Club Card for recognition. There is currently
much confusion whether the Passion Card is proof of membership into the music club. There is
also confusion whether Passion Cards from other CCs can be valid as membership into the
Music Club and whether there is a reduction of fee.

Chairman explained that other CC Passion Cards cannot be used as membership into TMC. All
new members will have to pay a fresh $28 to join the TMC and get a new Passion Card from
Tanglin CC. However, he agreed that there is much confusion and shall look into this matter. He
advised all to use their IC No and name to check their expiry status in the Music Club for the
time being.

Assessment of Meeting & Conclusion:

Meeting adjourned at approximately 2130 hours.
The minutes of the meeting was recorded by Lim Kian Kian

The next meeting will be notified by SMS &/or E-mail Correspondence.
