CLUB BRAAI

There will be no club braai in June and July due to the cold.

CLUB HOUSE

Johan, our project manager, reports that he has received three quotations for the drawing up of the plans and is waiting for one more quotation.  The recommended quote and expenses for the building of the club house will then be submitted to the members for approval after which the School Governing Body will be approached for final approval.

Here is a draft of the plans for the new club house:

 RACE REPORT

Cas and I were fortunate to be able to run the Vic Falls 21km in June. Running an international race is always a special occasion with people from all over the world sharing the route.  Many South Africans ran the 21km and we noticed quite a few people from France and Germany even as far as Latvia!  Here are a few pictures.
