President's Message:


Hello All,

What a start to the new year! We started off with a great event at Brian and Leslie's. Harry Fourie and his wife Klarinda where visiting so the chapter hosted a dinner. Leslie did the cooking and to say the food was fantastic is an understatement - what a meal! We hosted over 40 people and it was great evening - good friends and great food.


Next up is the annual Stag party and Ladies Night. As many of you know the Stag party is a night of maybe cold beer, great bar-b-que. It is a rare evening wherein many a tale is told, but the truth is never spoken. The ladies are planning a wine, cheese and chocolate party, and I don't think as many lies will be told. This will be the first event host at our home, as we've finally finished most of the repairs, and Michele can relax, and enjoy the evening.


March we will be hosting a dinner at Jim Helinger's. The evening will feature traditional Italian cuisine and a very special home made desert. John Martins will be our guest speaker and will regale us with tales of his 41 day safari this past year.


Then we reach April - and this year for the first time, we are going to host a vendors reception at Banquet Masters the night before our annual banquet. The will give those you attend the our annual fundraiser an opportunity to meet the various outfitters and vendors that support the chapter in a more relaxed setting. You will have the time to really get a feel for what our vendors offer. As this event comes together I will post further details.

Thanks for your support, see you at our events
