The concurrent time slot for the SMC activities is only open for every Sunday as I'm still ironing out some issue with the people at the CC to re-allot timing for opening the club house for Saturday and there are chance that the club house will be open on weekdays too for those who are not able to come down on weekend or needed a place to work on their Competition project like this year end Bakuc/ Clash Of The Titan (COTT) competition coming soon. If we're able to boost our membership base then the club house will be open everyday due to member's usages daily. So do look forward to that and if you got friends who are interested to learn scale modeling or would want to continued building gundam do invite them to join you
