Special Thanks to “WongTai”

On behalf of Raiders TKD, we would like to give thanks to Wong Family (Mr William Wong, Mrs Michelle Wong, Kyle Wong, Ethan Wong & Ashley Wong) and Tai Family (Mr Tai Sau Wee, Mrs Catherine Tai & Tai Wen Bin). They are the Co-Sponsors for the “WongTai” projects.

Our last 2 weekend’s demonstration at Katong CC and White Sand Open field has brought the team closer with more parents. Our Co-Sponsors were busy taking pictures of the team during the 15mins to 20mins performance. Special thanks to their hard work and great effort!

However, their hard work did not come to an end yet thou we have all packed up and left the place and carried on with our daily routine life. In less than a week, they have specially developed 4 photos each for every one of the performers (ie. All the 25 performers will receive 4 photos each). All the photos were carefully selected and touched up before they were sent for developing and lamination.

Not only that, Mdm Michelle Wong is also very thoughtful to sort out the photos into 25 packs indicating the ownership of each pack. Thank you once again for the extra time, the extra miles!
We are sure the kids will all be very delighted to learn that they are going to have 4 more photos to add on to their memories and demonstration collections. 

Many thanks once again!!

Below is the updated Photo Album on the two Demo:

Dear Parents and Trainees going for the Malacca trip, please kindly take note of the below few changes:-

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

3) The rooms which we are staying will be of a cheaper rate. We will finalize the total cost and provide the detailed breakdown of all the costing via email at a later date. We will do the necessary refund once we are back in Singapore.

4) Please kindly take note that the red Tee shall be wear only on the tournament day, ie. 31st July'10. Our trip to and fro, shall be in our own clothings. :)

5) Dinner will be provided on the day when we reached Malacca. That is a welcome dinner by the host.

6) Day 2 and Day 3 breakfast shall be provided by the hotel.

7) Lunch for Day 2 (Tournament Day) will be provided and dinner will either be together with the group or on our own.
