A message from our Chairman

Greetings, fellow Ramblers,

I think you’ll agree the new hiking program has something for everyone. Thank you, and welcome to our new hike leaders, and to the regulars (if I may refer to you as such) who give of their time and knowledge. Thank you, Ian and Urs and Cornel, we do appreciate your efforts in setting up the program, and and and.

I urge you please to diarise December 7th when we shall celebrate our annual Christmas Braai at the home of Renata Puccini, 1 Sunnybrae Road, Rondebosch. Details to be released nearer the time.

And please scroll thru’ to read the beautiful poem entitled LEST WE FORGET, a small but important tribute to Ramblers who have passed, by our very own Bard, Ewen Smith.

There has not been much in the news about attacks on hikers lately and I apologise for bringing it up, but, please, let’s not be complacent, and let’s not wander far from the group during the hike. I be guilty of that, I know!!

The September long weekend trip to the Klein Karoo, and hiking in the Swartberg Mountains, was a huge success, by all accounts. Thank you again, Cornel, for setting that up and a particular thanks to Vivienne and Barry Meijer for their wonderful hospitality.

Last, but by no means least, a very warm welcome to the new Ramblers in our midst. Their names appear in this program. We wish you many happy hikes with the Club.

Warm regards

Tony Serafin
