Dear Members and Reciprocal Members,
The Eccentric Club is presently going through a re-organisation, and, while our functions will go ahead, as planned, for this and next year, all reciprocal visits and some other activities are suspended until further notice.
We are working hard on securing a better arrangement for the club operations in the future.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
Nil Nisi Bonum
Chairman of the Eccentric Club
