How are you
Well it has been a while since I have sent out a newsletter! Anyway below you will a list of what has been happening and what is coming up in the association for the past and next few months. WELCOME TO ALL THE NEW 41’ers THAT HAVE JOINED OUR RANKS AFTER THE RTSA AGM!
Firstly we have just returned from a very successful INTERNATIONAL AGM that was held in Interlaken, Switzerland over the weekend of 28 April 2013. The meeting was attended by myself, VP Koos and President Gertjie. It was decided at the meeting that we would accept small countries with less than 3 clubs into club 41 International. The main reason for this being that we need to open the membership of our association to all countries and cannot hold it against them for not being able to make up more than 1 or 2 clubs; examples being countries like Suriname and Malta.
The OUTGOING YAP TOUR will be from the 27 June - 14 July 2013. 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 and are broken down as follows:
Admin fee R 600
The above is approximate amounts and could vary slightly. The above also does not include spending money. I do not believe that you can get a 3 week European holiday anywhere in the work for this price. Please DOWNLOAD the application forms and get them off to me as soon as possible. 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!
Finalisation of the INCOMING YAP tour is underway and details will be available soon. The tour will start in Johannesburg on 25 August takin the Yappers from ORTambo to Polokwane, back to Johannesburg and then on to Bethlehem, Clarens, Harrismith, Pietermaritzburg and finally the South Coast ending at our National AGM on the weekend of 06 - 08 September 2013. The tour is already full and the Yappers are very excited.
Talking about our ASSOCIATION AGM, you can now REGISTER online! It is going to be a really great weekend filled lots of fun and fellowship. The AGM is very affordable and is being held at the Natalia ATKV Resort in Illovo, Natal South Coast. Everything is taking place at the resort and there is no need to drive anywhere once there!
Our next EXEC MEETING will be held in Witbank, Mpumalanga over the weekend of 14 - 16 June 2013! Any of you guys out there that would like to pop in and say hi, please do so!
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. The club that submits the most information during May and June 2013 will win a R500 CHECKERS VOUCHER and 41'ers ASSOCIATION OF SOUTHERN AFRICA REGALIA HAMPER to do with as they please! Winners will be announced in the July 2013 newsletter!!!
Remember to have fun, Enjoy life and Embrace the
Friendships you have around you!
Until next month & year....May the Hinges of Friendship Never Rust.
