Hi Astrobashers,

Here are some things for you to take note of,

Safety briefing slides

I have attached the powerpoint slides from the safety briefing. Please take a look at them again to check whether did you missed anything out during the briefing.

Consent and indemnity form

If you have not submitted your consent and indemnity form (not the swimming declaration form), please use this one. The previous one has some typos. Remember to sign and bring it on Monday with the swimming declaration form!


The meeting location on Monday is at DFS galleria opposite Far East Plaza. Meeting time is 6.15am. If you are unsure of the location, please refer to the two maps below.

If you have any queries, please either email me or contact Jay at 93374282, thanks!
