The Exec recently held its 3rd NEC meeting in Calitzdorp while enjoying a few rounds of golf and great FELLOWSHIP. President Koos has maintained his motto well by remaining ‘VISIBLE’ and I am happy to report that DC’s have been appointed in the Northern Cape and the Southern Cape with some 41’ers Clubs soon to be formed. Watch this space. CLICK HERE to read the minutes from that meting.
The OUTGOING YAP TOUR has returned and although I have not heard from them yet, I am sure they had a wonderful holiday and met many new friends.
With that said, planning for the INCOMING YAP TOUR will be starting on the 24 August 2014 and we have 12 YAPS from Europe and India that will be taking part. As usual the YAP tour ends at the AGM so those of you in attendance will have the opportunity to meet these youngsters. CLICK HERE to see this year’s Incoming YAP Tour Program and Co-ordinators in the various cities.
A BIG THANKS must go to all the hosts for this years tour, without you the tour would not be possible!
THANK YOU to all the CLUBS that have paid their subs it is greatly appreciated. All those that have not paid, please do so URGENTLY as you will not have a vote at the AGM.
Before I wrap it up CLICK HERE to read the International Newsletter for July. So that just about wraps it up for another month…if anyone has anything to share with us then please contact me…send in photos of your socials etc.
