A message from our Chairman

Dear Ramblers,

Seventy two, not out! No, not the winning margin by the Proteas in the Final of the current Cricket World Cup being played in Wales and England, but the age of OUR Club.

Thanks to those who pitched to mark the occasion on May 22nd at Bertie’s Balcony, and to the Committee Members, Hike Leaders and Members, who make this Club what it is.

We ARE about People and Hiking. So, let’s remember in our thoughts those Ramblers who are seriously ill or aged and not able to hike !

I realise that I am preaching to the converted, here, BUT the safety of our members is of paramount importance on hikes, so let’s not be complacent. If weather conditions are such that they constitute a risk to life and limb, the hike may be cancelled, or a slightly different route selected. In the event of uncertainty please contact the hike leader.

Splitting up the hiking group, too, due to the inability of a hiker to cope can lead to dangerous situations and is most undesirable. So, hikers must take into account their personal circumstances, such as level of fitness, recovering from illness, proper
gear, etc.

The Club is deeply saddened to announce the passing of one of our members, Andrew Robinson, on June 22nd. Our thoughts and sympathies go to Elizabeth and family at this deeply distressing time. A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, July 19th.

The venue is likely to be St. Margaret’s Anglican Church, 5th Avenue, Fish Hoek. A notice will be posted nearer the time.

A huge welcome to our new Ramblers. We wish you many happy hikes with this Club.

Please support the Soup Evening on 26th July at 1 Sunnybrae Road, Rondebosch.

Weekend away planned: Klein Karoo September 20-24 (places still available)

Day trip on the radar: Postberg Nature Reserve, Langebaan August-September

Warm regards

Tony Serafin
