South Coast Year End Function

WHAT A FUNCTION!!! The South Coast Division held their Year End Function on the 21 November 2008, at the Edwardian Hotel in Port Edward. As always the spirit and atmosphere amongst the South Coast Members was like that of a family reunion, as we dined and danced the night away.

The venue added to the glamour of the event and we were particularly pleased to have negotiated a special overnight tariff from the Hotel, for those members who really wanted to make it a special evening out.

The call for the men to change their daily Khaki’s for a jacket and tie was heeded in most instances, and the men looked very respectable alongside their ladies, who of course always looked stunning. Ladies, as always, your contribution makes the function the success it was. WELL DONE LADIES!!!

When we made the reservation, 140 people indicated that they would be attending and in the end, about 130 attended the function. I have already received extremely positive feedback from those that attended the event.

Our sponsors contributed a total of R17,000, which went a long way towards subsidizing the cost of the function for our Members. We would like to give special thanks to the following sponsors:
  • Blue Gold
  • Port Shepstone Quarries
  • Nu form
  • Federated Timbers Manaba
  • On Tap
  • Form Scaff
  • NPC
As always the Year End Function is the highlight of our proceedings for the year and I have already started looking for a suitable venue for next year. I will be giving you regular updates during the year.

I was pleased to be able to present a Certificate and Floating Trophy to the most active and committed Member during the passed year. This year's winner was Ray Basson, who has been incredibly supportive and assisted me in finding my feet and settling in to the new office.

Ron Underwood, the previous Divisional Manager, was unfortunately unable to attend the event, but sent through his apologies and wished all Members a most enjoyable event.
