Congratulations to Kevin Mills on becoming a grandfather for the first time! Enjoy this special time.
Mike Wood went sailing around the Greek islands and commented on the progress made with maintenance and upkeep of the islands in comparison to a few years ago when he also visited Greece.
Roy Jones and his wife had a lovely eight day break to the Seychelles- you lucky fish!
Cameron Scott and Tony Oshry had an amazing sailing trip around the Seychelles Islands. Beautiful moments were captured with a camera. The trip saw an awful lot of eating and not a great amount of sailing!
Peter Long’s daughter and son in law did the half iron man in Mallorca Spain,but she hit a cat and damaged her bike. It was sort of fixed, but only had one gear for the rest of the race. Her husband caught up with her but 1 km before the end of the race she passed out and had to be taken to hospital in Spain. His son in law ran to the hospital as he was not allowed to accompany his wife in the ambulance –a distance of 5km instead of finishing the race with 1km left! They then booked for Durban to run the Iron man as his daughter was determined to finish an Iron man. Great news is that they both completed the Iron man in Durban. The Durban Iron man is not as well run as our local PE Iron man. Peter’s son in law did the event in 5h11min and his daughter 7 hours – well done!!
Gareth Chamier shared about his family holiday to the West Coast. They also took the children to Disney on Ice in Cape Town. It was a great show, but the popcorn was R90 a box!!!! Crazy. They also went to Langebaan, St. Helena Bay and many other beautiful places along the West Coast.
Ken Munro and Bill Williams had a lovely break away to Umngazi River Mouth with their wives. The trip was aimed at doing at little as possible, which was achieved!
Well done to Moya Rossouw for being elected as the Chairperson of SEDRA (South Eastern Dispute Resolution Association), an association aimed at the training of mediators and providing mediation services to the public. Over 60 legislative pieces in South Africa requires compulsory mediation before parties to a dispute can resort to litigation making SEDRA’s efforts all the more invaluable.
Poor Godfrey van Graan lost a finger in an unexpected altercation with a very angry dog at one of his work sites.
In preparation for the up and coming Argus Cycle Race in March, Jeff Ilsley, Les Kirkland and Cameron Scott all participated in the Herald Cycle race. Everyone experienced it as a difficult race due to the wet weather conditions which made visibility difficult.
In addition, Jeff celebrated his 70th birthday with his family at the Storms River chalets. Jeff’s three sons’ lives in different parts of the world, but all visited for the celebrations, which made it extra special. One of his birthday presents was a tandem skydiving jump with one of his son’s at Plettenberg bay- not bad for an old timer!
Trevor Long’s luck turned (after last week’s whole in one!) when he fell into his own pool while he cleaned it.
Congratulations to Jeff Stafford who was elected as the President of the Humewood CPU!
For the second time in his life Trevor Long hit a whole in one at the Humewood Golf Club. His previous time was on 2 February 2000. Well done Trevor!
Gianna Doubell watch the acclaimed WarHorse in Cape Town on New Year’s Eve. The South African production had its first run at the Grahamstown Festival and soon rose to fame at London’s West End in 2007. It is said to have been seen by over 1 Million people. Something to be proud of was a local PE boy, Richard Vorster, who currently plays one of the leads in the show as the horse Joey!
Ross Kobus and his family had a very enjoyable trip up the East Coast on the MSC Cruise Liner and enjoyed wonderful weather throughout.
Shauib Rahim and Evert Knoesen had an island hopping holiday (Phuket, Patong, etc.) in Thailand. The food was fantastic and they loved the diving and snorkelling activities. They returned refreshed and recharged for the New Year!
Vernon Naidoo and Catherine McMillan both went to Singapore in separate trips. It was Vernon and his family’s fifth holiday to Singapore. They also visited Malaysia for five days.
Catherine visited her parents. She experienced the hot and humid weather as terrible, but enjoyed the theme parks, especially Universal Studios.
