Message from . . .

Advertising, Media & Marketing Co-ordinator

Greetings to all of you our Members, Visitors & Friends . . .

A New Year is often the time when we all indulge ourselves and dream of the wonderful new time we are going to have now that we have made all those fabulous New Year's resolutions.  May I encourage you all to be realistic with your new year resolutions this year, if you are going to be making any.  Be kind to yourselves, and always be grateful for all that you have achieved and don't try to have more than you need.

May I share my New Years' resolution with all of you this year . . .

"I use to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I'm more afraid of succeeding at things that don't matter"

Whatever your resolution is . . . I wish you all the very best of what 2016 has to offer you.

See below some fun photo's of our New Years Party we had down at the Club.  As you can see we had a VERY festive New Years Party!!  Thanks to all of you who supported the evening with the "Tequila Twins" (our Durban based band who hosted the evening).  Thanks to our Music Maestro DJ "Stoppy" as well, for assisting and playing music for us in the afternoon, and for all the "inbetween bits" that were slotted in that kept the party going for us too!! The party was good!!

To all those behind the scenes . . . our wonderful Bar Staff & Waitresses, Saffron Chefs, and our Club Manager, Carrie Pieterse. Thanks guys for all your hard work and tremendous efforts that went into making the evening a fabulous success!!

The other photo's can be viewed on our Facebook page.
