Monday, March 19, 2012

hiking activities on 25th Mar

Dear MACAT-AA Friends and Members,

This is the last reminder for our outing on next Sunday.
Attached please find the leaflet for your information.
For those who have enrolled,
please note that the gathering start point is at Bus Stop #15 in front of the City Hall.

We have changed to go up to the peak by bus and not by peak tram because the peak tram fare is around $45,
and there is no free shuttle bus.
They charge $4.5 and call the route #15C at the stop where we shall wait,
and it only runs from 10AM onward.

For those who did not register but want to join us,
just come (but better reply to this eMAIL first so that we know that we have to wait for you).

Please don't hesitate to call with the contact listed on the attachment.
Print and bring it along for your own sake.

For those who wish to become a Life Member (if you're still not),
just complete the form and mail to us (address is our Translation Department) with just $20.

Sincerely yours,
