How are you
I trust that you are all home safely from the Easter weekend travels it is time for another update of what’s happening in your Association.
The last few months have seen the NATIONAL EXEC TRAVELING around a bit with the Exec meeting held in Welkom during February and what a success it was. We have managed to revive Welkom 41’ers through the assistance of Peter Trisos and again a big thanks to all the guys from Welkom for their hospitality over the weekend.
Your President Koos and Keith Dempsey accompanied by their wives have gone on a little international travelling to visit the guys in GERMANY, GB&I and will then finish off at the INTERNATIONAL AGM in Korsor, Denmark where at this years AGM as you all know South Africa has made ourselves available for the INTERNATIONAL VICE PRESIDENCY 2016/17. The voting takes place in Korsor. I will be joining Koos and Keith for the International AGM and I will be representing South Africa as their CANDIDATE.
As said in my previous letter, the OUTGOING YAP TOUR will again be during the June/July holiday break and the dates will be from the 28 June - 17 July 2014. There will be 6 YAPS going over from South Africa. Their tickets have been bought, visas are busy being applied for, so things are moving along nicely. If there is anyone else that would like to attend the YAP tour and your are between the ages of 18 and 25 years old and the child of a 41’er in South Africa, please contact me on email@example.com

Peter Brauteseth and John Marshall, Association VP and 2nd VP respectively recently joined the RTSA National AGM in East London and had a great time with the Round Tablers. CONGRATULATIONS TO LEON GARBADE & THE NEW RTSA COUNCIL, GOOD LUCK FOR THE NEXT YEAR! The 41’ers hosted a whiskey tasting for the ‘retiring Tablers’ so that they can get to know more about what it is we as an Association has to offer…and what a success. Well done to Peter and John for representing us at this event. ARTSA was well organised as usual and there were a total of 68 Round Tablers that have reached the ripe old age of 40 this year. Peter and John are making it their mission to ensure that these guys are contacted to join our wonderful association. During the ARTSA AGM Peter addressed the Tablers and again informed them of how our two Associations are important to each other, highlighting what we have to offer.
