And as a SCOB volunteer there for 8 years, I will strongly advise you against it. The staff whom I have close bonds with, and those that I don't, all have that the same consensus that SSC isn't a place you would want to stay for the long term. Unless it's like the only job you can find and/or tahan in today's SG climate.Mariner wrote:Airconvent wrote:Was there today.

As for his shop, the prices of his stuff have come down drastically. A Nexstar 8SE is around $2200 today, down by 50% , not that much more expensive if you shipped it from the US, I think. His old shop space has been replaced by a new kids exhibit area.
Pray tell. I'm seriously considering joining SSC.
(P.S. Not to mention pay is [meh] from what I heard.)
