How are you
I trust that you are all back and well rested from the festive season and that by now it is a distant memory. But don’t worry before you know it we will be back in December and enjoying a well deserved rest.
All seems to be well in the Association and I am happy to announce that the YAP Incoming and Outgoing tour dates have been finalised but more about that later. The 2nd Exec Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Bushveld Area Round Table Conference in Pretoria over the weekend of the 06 -08 march 2015. It will really be great to see as many 41’ers from the Gauteng area there as possible.
If there are any points, suggestions and/or questions that you would like us to discuss at the meeting, then please email them to your Association Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org and he will put them on the agenda.
The OUTGOING YAP TOUR will again be during the June/July holiday break and the dates will be from the 28 June - 17 July 2015. As usual the Belgian and German Associations are sponsoring the cost of the tour for the South Africans and thus it makes it rather affordable to go. The only cost to your kids is the flight ticket, visa and the admin fee that must be paid over to the Belgians on arrival. I am awaiting the final flight and visa costs but for budgeting purposes you can use the below amounts:
Tour Fee R0,000
Admin fee R 600
The above is approximate amounts and could vary. The above also does not include spending money. I do not believe that you can get a 3 week European holiday anywhere in the world for this price. Please DOWNLOAD the application forms and get them off to me as soon as possible at email@example.com To make it even more affordable, our association will be giving the first 5 successful applicants an amount of R2,000 towards their trip, so do not delay! There are 10 seats available for the above tour.
There is a 2nd Outgoing Tour which is to India and the dates are as follows:
India South Tour – 28 June to 28 July 2015
India North Tour – 12 July to 11 August 2015
This is unfortunately the only information I have so far. As soon as I have any further info, I will publish it. Please let me know if you are interested in the meantime.
The INCOMING YAP tour will be from the 23 August to the 06 September 2015 this year, so get ready to host. I will send out more info with regards to that tour closer to the time.
This years ASSOCIATION AGM, will be held over the weekend of 4,5,6 September 2015 and it will be held at Parys On Vaal. You can REGISTER on-line now and visit our website for further information.
Well that seems to be all for now. If you have any news about what is happening in your club please send it through to me so that we can place it on the website. I will be working on the club members contact details on the website so that page will be out of action for a while. Remember that REGALIA can be ordered on line at
In closing, why not get together as a group of 41’ers in your area and celebrate Valentine’s Day as a group by spoiling that someone special in your life.
Remember to have fun, Enjoy life and Embrace the
Friendships you have around You!
Until next month........May the Hinges of Friendship Never Rust.
