Others celebrate workers, heroes and significant events in history. National Day stands out among all the holidays if only because it is a holiday for all Singaporeans without exception. Every year on 9 August, we look back to that date in That s when Singapore secured its independence from Malaysia and became a sovereign nation.
That was when we attained the rights to our freedom and selfdetermination. When we see the many countries being controlled by outside powers, or are not politically or economically strong enough to stand on their own, we realize that freedom and self-determination are not things we can take for granted. During its post-independence periods, Singapore has had to struggle for its survival. There were threats, both internal and external.

But in the end, our people always pulled together and closed ranks. It took a lot of time and effort to build bonds and foster trust among our people from the various ethnic and religious groups. But over time we realized that our diversity was actually our strength.
Our mix of people is what made us colourful and given us our unique identity as Singaporeans. We sometimes take things for granted our jobs, our families, public amenities, social and religious harmony, living in secure neighbourhoods and so on. Before we rock the boat, it is worthwhile for us to consider how different will Singapore would be today if not for our Independence.
In our Club, we have our own way to celebrate our country s birthday. The National Day Carnival has become a tradition of the Club for as long as most of us can remember.
This year we are using the Many Stories One Singapore in line with the nation-wide theme. Do come and enjoy the food, the games and the fine company.
Alex Rivera on the guitar. But it may take something like the Jam Session Night to draw them out of the woodwork. Their musical talents were amply demonstrated at the series of jam sessions held at D Tanjong.
Participants got up to sing, play the drums, the guitar and even the ukulele! On the first night, keyboardist John Chew, guitarist Alex Rivera and friends provided supporting music for our performers.
The second night saw band Night Hawk and John Chew playing the support role. Now with Jam Sessions happening every Sunday from 6. Not surprisingly, members and guests came in droves for our first social dance event of the year. Each attendee was given a complimentary Mocktail upon arrival.

Later, some of the students of Instructor Sunny Low did the progressive waltz and cha-cha to the delight of the audience.
The concluding performance was a graceful and sophisticated routine by our very own instructor Mr Benedict Lau and his student. The night ended as always with a Lucky Draw.

Soon, everyone were losing themselves in the music. It was truly an awesome night! The next Shuffle to the Beatz will be held on Friday, 27 September. We waited 37 years to get our first Swimming Pool!
That s not the case. In the early years of Singapore Swimming Club we had a beach front and, in fact, our members used to swim in the open sea. Inwe built a diving stage right in the sea near the Club. It was a simple wooden structure with thatched roof. It added to the fun of swimming, but swimming in open waters in those days was risky business.
One fateful day, one Miss Boyer Smythe made a dive before she spotted a shark in the water. There was a sharp scream, a puddle of blood appeared in the waters, and she disappeared never to be seen again.
To solve the problem with sharks, a temporary pagar a rectangular shaped wooden fencing was constructed around the diving platform, and swimming was henceforth restricted within the confines of the pagar. Later a more permanent pagar was built with concrete bed. The pagar seemed to solve the problem with sharks and sustaining cuts from sharp objects in the muddy seabed.
Then one day, member Edward Ted Morgan made a full-blooded dive from the platform and ended up with a broken neck. There was insufficient depth of water in the pagar area! It was then that members started talking about having a swimming pool of their own where they could bathe any time of the day rather than having to wait for high tide which occurred eight to nine times a month in the afternoons. The idea was mooted at the annual general meeting in But it was only in that we finally had our first swimming pool!
That came 37 years after the Club was officially inaugurated in The pool s diving platform at that time was a structure with a triangular frame. Every time a picture of the Club appeared in the newspapers or a news clip, the triangular diving platform would be the most prominent object. It remained an icon of Singapore Swimming Club right until The children s pool was at the opposite end from the diving platform, and remains in the same position today. The objective of this annual event was to bring our soccer ethusiasts together whilst providing a platform for young emerging soccer talents to shine.
The competition saw four teams namely Commandos, Rangers, Snipers and Warriors taking part. For a start, the teams went head to head in a round robin challenge to establish which two teams would face off for the Champions title. The scoring was based on the two with the most points.
As it turned out, the Commandos emerged as the top team followed by Rangers, Warriors and Snipers in that order. And so we had Commandos and Rangers facing off in L-R: Dharvin Mirpuri, Rahul, Jivan and Ricky the finals. Commandos eventually overcame Rangers to win at and claim the Champions title.
In the succeeding match Warriors beat Snipers to claim the third spot. In the Freestyle Destruction round, participants had to break planks using their bare fists and feet. They were assessed for style as well as execution. The sparring rounds also proved exciting as opponents tried to outpunch and outwit each other.

The system of play adopted was the double knock out. One of the earlier matches saw Dhivesh Dadlani and Lee Simian slug it out blow for blow to be first to win five frames.
The game was eventually taken by Simian with a score of Dhivesh went on to lose his second matchthis time at the hands of Jasper Koh.
The final round was fought between Jasper and Simian. It was a race to win seven frames. Both players were on top of their games playing 12 frames all in all. In the end, both were deadlocked at In a spectacular finish, Jasper Koh pulled off a golden L-R: Lee Simian was the first runner-up while Dhivesh Dadlani was second runner-up.
