7. Mail received:
Hi All,
Seems there was a mistake with the pricing of hiring the CLUB HOUSE for private functions.

It is actually 30% discount of the fee, and not 30% of the fee.

Really sorry about the mix up.

We are also aware that one of the members have already paid the 30% for using the club house but because it was a mistake on our side, so we will not be asking him to pay the difference.

Once again,sorry for the mix up.

Many Regards,
Jessica
