My Fellow 41 International Members,
Although visiting Cyprus on many previous occasions, this visit was the first Country AGM I attended as the International President and boy oh boy was it great.
When arriving at International departures at OR Tambo in Johannesburg I was alerted by my travel agent that due to the issues between Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE my flight plan had changed. I could either cancel my flight and book another or I could arrive in Cyprus on Saturday afternoon around 14h00. Well needless to say I scurried around andfinally managed to get a seat on the Emirates flight to Larnaca. Very tense and frustrated at this point I went through to Duty Free and emend up in the lounge enjoying a few gin and tonics. This definitely assisted in bringing on that relaxed feeling.
After a great flight to Larnaca I arrived safe and sound to be greeted by a very friendly taxi driver who drove me to Pafos. On the way I leanrt from the taxi driver that prior to my arrival he had taken his car for a wash and during this event the washing equipmenthad got stuck in the front grid of the car and caused some serious damage and that the owner of the car wash just seemed to laugh it off. Anyway an hour and half later I arrived in Pafos and checked into the hotel. The hotel was nice and quaint. A quick shower, email catch up and then off to the AGM hotel to meet up with Alex and Yvette Abela. Once there we enjoyed a few Pina Colada’s and were then joined by Petros and George from Cyprus.
Super-Tabler and 41’er Peter ‘Bull’ Brauteseth has died
Larger-than-life South Coaster, Peter ‘Bull’ Brauteseth, passes onto the the famed Round Table ‘hard-core hut’ in the sky. (Old Tablers will be familiar with the the hardcore-hut where much fellowship is held after national conferences.)
Peter was a Tabler and 41’er through and through. Well respected in all spheres of the community Peter never took no for an answer. He was always ready to assist and ready to make a plan. Wherever he went he touched the lives of those around him in a positive way. The gentle giant (in size and stature) as we used to call him.
During his time as President of 41'ers Association of Southern Africa he served the association with distinction and together with Leon Garbade, the then RTSA President forged a really great working relationship between 41 Club and Round Table.
