We want to make the facilities even better this year! Please send a short report to us, telling us what you think are the best and worst aspects of the club. We also want to hear your suggestions for new facilities... Introduction: The aim of this report is to summarize the best and worst aspects of the club. Gd The report is based on the sample WW of my family members who have been using the club's facilities. Best Aspects: The variety WF facilities are convenient and cheap to use. The changing rooms of the swimming pool etc… are very clean. The comsumption of the café is inexpensive.PE The gym's equipment is good. The staff service is fairly good. Worst Aspects: The facilities do not open on Saturday and Sunday evenings, which we think is really inconvenient. The badminton courts are not available. The only café is not enough as it is also used by public customers as there is no other restaurants. PE Recommendations: To conclude, the facilities are well-organized but there are some suggestions from us: extend the opening hours on weekend evenings. Install badminton courts as more and more people take up WT the sport. Install some restaurants for the addition of WF customers and some drinks machines may be necessary as well by the time of closures of the café or restaurants. PE

  31. 31. BIG FISH “Big Fish” is a very emotional film about the relationship of a father and his son. It combines comedy, fantasy and emotions in a typical background created by Tim Burton. The film stars Ewan McGregor as Edward Bloom, who is the main character. The cast is not very well known, but Ewan McGregor plays a very good performance. The film is set when Edward Bloom is old and sick, and he is going to die. He has not talk with his son for many years. His son hates his father´s tales about his live, because he thinks that he lies, because they are so fantastic. So during the film you go back to the past, living the incredible Edward´s experiences of his live, and you return to the present to feel how the relationship between the father and the son evolves. There are not stunning special effects or frenetic action, but the script is amazing and also the end will make you cry. I would recommend the film to anyone who likes Burton´s films and who wants to feel his kind side, and also who likes fantastic tales.
  32. 32. TED ‘Ted’ is one of the most entertaining comedy films I have seen. It combines jokes with action, and stars Mark Wahlberg as John, Mila Kunis as Lori and the director of the film, Seth MacFarlane in the role of Ted. Ted was filmed in 2011 and it made 549 million dollars in revenue. The film is set in Boston, where John, a child without friends, asks for Christmas that a teddy (Ted) may have life and can be his best friend. John grows and the film focuses on the relation between John, his girlfriend Lori, and his best friend Ted, who is a bad influence for John according to Lori. The movie features a surprisingly competent performance from Ted, making you laugh constantly. As for the visual elements, there are any special effects in general, and the script is not stunning. You could imagine the next scene sometimes. I would recommend the film to anyone who wants to have a great time. If you do not wish a different or complicated plot, you will not feel disappointed.
