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!
We trust that you have received the latest 41er Communiqué from our 41 International President and Secretary via our website.
Just to let you know, we 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.
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 know of any “recently retired Roundtabler” who did not attend, please welcome them with suitable tasting of some “Fellowship Fuel”
