Dear Fellow Members,

We are nearing the halfway mark of Terminal City Club’s 94 Days of Summer. I hope you are enjoying the weather thus far and like me, have been able to enjoy some outdoor time with colleagues, friends, or family on a TCC patio. The Fitness Centre Patio is a highlight with the weekend crowd, and the summer buffets in The Grill are a very popular option on Wednesdays (lunch) and Thursdays (dinner) with live music. Please be sure to make a reservation in advance for these popular buffets!

In addition to these options, did you know that 1892 has a newly updated lunch menu, which you can also enjoy on the patio? And, the Lions Pub is yet another member option with a patio, not to mention a very popular food menu and 32 rotating taps. While the pub is open to the public (and very popular with cruise ship travellers), TCC members always receive a 10% discount on food purchases. Just provide your member number to your server.

Hopefully all of our members have experienced our beautiful new entrance lobby by now. I have heard a great deal of positive feedback about the improved look and feel that it creates. Now, I am looking forward to our next unveiling – the recreated Members’ Lounge (formerly the Billiards Room). It has been a long process from conception to completion, and a great deal of hard work, but we are almost there and I am confident that all our members will find the wait to have been worthwhile. Details of the opening party in September will be forthcoming soon. In the meantime, you may still reserve your personal temperature-controlled wine locker in the Members’ Lounge by emailing wine@tcclub.com for details.

Finally, some important administrative notes:
 • On Tuesday, August 20 at 3:00 p.m. All Club restaurants and service, including the Lions Pub and Fitness Centre, will close in order to facilitate our annual staff barbecue at Stanley Park. Throughout this year in my role as TCC President, I have been continually impressed by the team who work at the club. Together, they make TCC a special place. On this day, we show our appreciation for their efforts. Your understanding in this regard is also very much appreciated.

 • A reminder of TCC cell phone policies: These policies apply to members and guests without exception. It is a member’s responsibility to ensure that their guests are aware of and following these policies. Please remember that these policies are in effect because they reflect the wishes of the majority of TCC members.
o All mobile devices must be set on silent.
o Talking on cellphones is permitted in the Business Centre, phone rooms, lobby area, and Fitness Centre lobby only. Texting and emailing on silent is okay.

• Expression of interest for TCC Board positions: the Nominations Committee will be convening soon to review candidates in time for the AGM in December. We are looking for candidates with professional or senior management backgrounds, and are able to devote time to develop and guide the strategies of our Club. If you are interested in joining the TCC Board, please email gm@tcclub.com to express your interest.

Enjoy many warm, sunny, beautiful August days. I look forward to seeing you in the Member Lounge soon.

Dr. Ignatius Cheung
Terminal City Club President
