This is the time of the year when your committee reports back and you get a chance to meet your fellow club members in a more formal, dinner setting.
After dispensing with club business we will have a local comedian perform an after dinner speech.
So, please express your interest early so we can coordinate seats with the venue. The club will be sponsoring the dinner such that members will pay between R80-R100 and non-members (guests) will pay around R240-R260 (amounts to be finalised based on menu choices).
To confirm your booking, please email our chairman.

Parliament is the custodian of more than 5 000 pieces of heritage art, worth almost R 50 million. Only 300 pieces are still in plain sight – former speaker Frene Ginwala decided to remove most of the art amid controversy in 1996. The remainder is stored in an access- and climate-controlled environment.
Activists at the time argued that the new democratic government was attempting to censor Afrikaner, colonial and apartheid history.
Our exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour in August of this little-known rare art collection, not available to the general public, was fully-subscribed, so we were delighted when the head of the Parliamentary Artwork Collection, Lila Komnick, agreed to a second tour to accommodate those who missed out in August.
Note that numbers are limited and that you will be required to provide a copy of your ID prior to the event.
Further information and booking with the Winelands Secretary.
