How are you
This newsletter comes to you to welcome you to the world and life of the 41er. You have recently reached that stage in your Roundtable career where the fun REALLY starts.
As you no doubt know, 41ers of Southern Africa belongs to an International Brotherhood of Old Tablers that is represented in all, the countries of the world that Roundtable is also joined to. Therefore your life as an Old Tabler, is just beginning and all the friends you made locally and Internationally, are still bound together.
SMALL REPORT BACK ON ACTIVITIES
We have recently returned from a wonderful International Conference in Cyprus. John Marshall and yours truly “flew the flag high” accompanied by Bruce McKay, who became the International 2nd Vice President (President in 2107 at International Conference here in South Africa) Gertjie Coetzee and Geoff Howard Tripp a Margate 41er. Obviously our wives attended as well. Needless to say we had a blast!
Once again Congratulations Bruce!
So there you have it, a South African is the incumbent “World President” for “Old Tablers” in 2017.
We attach the latest 41er Communiqué from our 41 International President and Secretary which you will receive monthly form your District Councilor (just like the Area chairman)
Just to let you also know, we as 41ers International have submitted a questionnaire to ARTSA to study and give feedback regarding how Roundtablers perceive 41er Clubs and their members in a global quest to grow the two Associations closer together.
Also, a “Side by Side” agreement was signed in Cyprus between 41ers International and Roundtable International. Visit our website to see these two documents. www.41ers.co.za
We had good representation, as we always do, at !NARTSA in Windhoek. Your Vice President John Marshall and 2nd Vice Andre De Villiers were in attendance when they welcome “Retiring Tablers” at the now traditional Welcoming Whisky Tasting. If you were there, you have been welcomed, if not, find your local 41ers and make sure that they welcome you with a suitable tasting of some “Fellowship Fuel”. If that fails, simply contact any of the chaps on the Exec and we will make sure you are “followed up”

PRE & POST AGM TOURS
Pre and post AGM tours that have been added to the website, so please visit the website and see for yourself, what is on offer.
In a nutshell, the pre-tour will involve a visit to Sun City and Post AGM Tour, organised by Past Presidents John Hudson and Arthur Van Der Schyff, offers an overland trip via Botswana, Chobe, Vic Falls to Luanda for the Zambian AGM, the weekend after our AGM. This will present an opportunity for many to visit that AGM and you will be in good company as many International 41ers will also attend. This is a great opportunity to have international fellowship at an affordable price.
