SASA in vino veritas
The Western Cape branch of SASA held its AGM on 9 September at the Seidelberg Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. The event took the form of a wine tasting and lunch and was reputedly a great success. “We had 47 members and guests there on the day. The AGM was held outdoors on the patio overlooking the beautiful Stellenbosch valley, with Table Mountain in the background. What a stunning setting for the meeting,” said Regional Secretary, Dave Waywell.
The AGM saw the election of:
* Koos van Rooyen (chairman).
* Mark Sangster (vice chairman).
* Dave Waywell (secretary/treasurer).
* John Hitchcock (events/golf day).
* Kevin Buret (events/golf day).
* Rudi Wolter (membership).
The meeting was followed by a round of wine tasting, where the members were able to sample the fine wines of Seidelberg. “We tasted a number of reds as well as a few whites and by popular consensus, the wines did not disappoint. The tasting enabled everyone to whet their appetite and a fantastic lunch was then served in the estate restaurant, De Leuwen Jagt. Lunch was followed by networking and socialising, where everyone had the opportunity of enjoying a relaxing afternoon,” Waywell said.
