Wat n groot suksesvolle dag dit nie was nie. Ons Aurabies 273 span het hard gewerk aan ons winter knight projek en harde werk het ons beloon. Baie dankie aan Hoërskool Martin Oosthuizen vir hulle hulp met die insameling van klere en kosse vir die minderbevoorregtes. Dankie ook aan Upington Toyota wat ons gehelp het met die projek.
Augrabies 273 se manne is op die pad Villiersdorp 227 toe vir ons jaarlikse Twinning Visvang trip.

What a night!!
On Saturday 16th of February Augrabies 273 had their AGM. It was an evening held in our Clubhouse in Augrabies, who knew that a well-known place like our clubhouse could look that good.
The day started with a meeting at our clubhouse with all our Current Portfolio holders and our Augrabies team. After the meeting had finished all members had a few drinks before heading home to get dressed for the evenings event.
Everyone started arriving at 18:30 and what a sight it was seeing everyone well dressed in their suits and the girls in their dresses. It was a night full of fun and games and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Our new team for 2019/2020 was chosen:
Chairman – Jurgens Coetzee
Vice – Abraham Coetzee
Treasurer – AD Malan
Secretary – Hansie Hanekom
IRO/PRO – WH Gresse
Clubhouse – Niel Rossouw
As the Northern Cape & Free State Tables gathered together in agricultural Vaalharts area, on the weekend of the 14th of September we received a hearty welcome from the Hartswater Round Table and they’re families. Upon arrival it became clear that the weekend was well planned and greatly anticipated by all.
Friday night our togetherness was celebrated with a steak braai and mieliepap in the stretch tent outside their clubhouse. The fun started a bit early with Jaco van Zyl, Tjop de Vries and Attie Naude from Prieska Round Table arriving in full theme party attire, fishnets-the works!
The Saturday started with a big breakfast and bottles of Crème Soda and Castle Lite. Sean Trautmann proudly announced how the organization has grown in the last six months and how the aim of upper management is to keep Tafelaars happy and see them out until the age of 40 years. A big emphasis was placed on family and family values and of course doing our best to make a tangible difference within our country. 9 new members were inducted from Augrabies, Upington and Bloemfontein.
The Ladies Tour was a well-planned and brilliantly executed with a focus on getting to know the town and community of Hartswater as well as each other. The wives visited the pecan nut and olive factory and was taken on tour to the cotton factory, the other major commodity of the area.
Saturday night we were entertained by a brilliant performance by Jan Raap and of course the theme party: “Boer en sy Hoer” and from there the night continued with an abundance of hospitality and good will.
Sunday morning the good byes were said at the local Wimpy. All of us leaving with renewed enthusiasm and strengthened relationships.
Thank you Hartz 😊 for the great weekend
It is a privileged to have been part of the Hartswater Tri-Area. so many memories were made for quite a few people, including two of our own.
Hansie Hanekom and Abraham Coetzee was officially inducted into Augrabies 273 Round Table and we are proud of them being part of such an amazing organisation.
