Date: 17 May 2008 (Saturday)
Time: 9am - Finish (night)
Venue: 9am: Orchestra room
Dinner: BBQ at pasir ris

Most likely, transport will be provided for our trip to pasir ris.

Please inform us if you require any "special orders" for instance if you are vegetarian or muslim so that we can make the necessary arrangements for you.

What we will be doing on that day, would be playing some icebreaker games (usual), and will have interaction sessions with your sectional members and of course, our orchestra members. Do take this opportunity to know as many friends as possible!! ^_^.

It will be a fun-filled event, so see you there!!
