    for the benefits of CSers, i posted the hightlights of the open house.

    Highlights of the Navy Open House 2004
    Navy Open House 2004 will be divided into four zones:
    Sea Zone, Exhibition Zone, Entertainment Zone,and Family & Fun Zone.

    Sea Zone
    Featuring ship visits, sea cruises, “duck tour”, small craft rides and recreational fun rides. In addition, there will be many other recreational fun rides such as Jetski, Banana Boats, Kayaks and Laser Pico.


    Exhibition Zone
    Come view the technologies and firepower of the RSN. Get up close to weapons such as missiles, torpedoes, 57mm gun, Mine Disposal Vehicles (MDV). Experience for yourself the surface-to-air anti-missile (SAM) simulator.

    Visitors will also be able to understand the Navy’s history and heritage, customs, traditions and people through exhibits from the Navy museum. There will also be an exhibition of “Navy at Work” photos, videos and scaled models of ships and Changi Naval Base. For the first time, the public will also be able to see the design and pictures of the Navy’s new Frigates.


    Entertainment Zone
    The entertainment zone will feature song and dance performances from the Music and Drama Company (MDC), various school bands, SAF Provost Unit, and SAFRA Radio DJs who will spin hit songs and read out song dedications.

    There will also be a special appearance on 29 May by MediaWork artistes from the latest Navy Drama serial "Be Somebody", such as Ann Kok and Ix Shen.


    Family & Fun Zone
    Catered for the young and young-at-heart, carnival stalls will feature kiddy rides, inflatables and game stalls. Other attractions include a Art & Craft corner, archery, Rodeo Bull Challence and Bungee Run. Stand to win more than 2000 prizes each day in the 20 different challenging games at the carnival.

    A Children’s Art & Craft corner will let kids have their hands on sand art, coaster art and craft punch. While the kids are occupied with the other stalls, grown-ups and older kids can try their hand at archery and seek more thrills on the Rodeo Bull Challenge and Bungee Run.


    Officers’ Wives Club Charity Project
    The SAF Officers’ Wives Club (OWC), formed in 1974, will be selling military souvenirs and collectables during the Open House. Attractive and specially designed Navy Souvenirs such as collar pin sets, ball caps as well as pewter models of military craft will be available. All proceeds will be donated to charity, including the SAF Benevolent Fund, the Community Chest and the Straits Times Pocket Money Fund.
