Dear Fellow 41’ers and Friends,
The 2019 AGM is still fresh in the memory as I write to you on behalf of myself and the new Executive Council for the 2019/20 Year. After months of planning and late evening meetings paid off and the Convening Committee put together what many regarded as one of the best AGM’s for the 41’ers Association in many years. Over the weekend of the 7-9th September we held this prestigious occasion at the NH Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West. Sadly we could not have it at the previously advertised Rustlamere Hotel and Spa, as this venue was destroyed in a fire in the early hours of the 22nd July of this year.
As usual the Lord Charles and her staff did not disappoint and we had a fantastic weekend filled with laughs, fine dining, some heavy discussions, a few “soft drinks”, finished off by a glamorous Gala event attended by over 130 delegates, wives, partners, Visitors and YAP’s. It all started with a Welcoming Party with a Rugby World Cup theme held at the Round Table Somerset West 31 Clubhouse. Saturday morning saw the boys in the usual decorum hold a rather lengthy AGM where we had some serious conversations and hard decisions to make about our membership and the road ahead for the Association. We were fortunate to have visitors from 9 different Countries attending our event from as far as Sweden in the North and as close as some delegates from our neighbours, Zambia. The newly appointed International President of the 41’ers Association, Mr. Luc Trigaux, originally from the beautiful City of Brussels in Belgium, also graced us with his presence to share some information about the situation on the International level and a few personal views in the Executive meetings held before and after the AGM respectively as is the tradition.
An Enjoyable Weekend at ARTSA
It is the weekend of the 12th to 14th of April, and so the whole of Round Table Southern Africa, Club 41 and a few Ladies Circle members, some 749 participants in total came together for a great Fellowship event as always. Convener, Mr Brink Human (Saldanha 226) backed up by Bellville RT65 pulled of yet another epic ARTSA, that was clearly enjoyed by all. The backdrop of the lovely Club Mykonos venue added even more beauty to an already colorful event.
The 41'er Assopciation of Southern Africa held its 3rd Executive meeting on Friday morning 12 April 2019, which was well attended by a few Past Club 41 Presidents and current District Councilors.
This was followed by a 41’er Whiskey tasting that we could all agree was one for the books, attended by all 25 “Incoming 41’ers” that attended ARTSA 2019 along with their lovely partners and wives.
