Thanks Mark, last year was a bit hectic, and we took a bit of time to settle in, but over the Christmas break Anton and I sat down and ironed out some of the niggles, and we also took the positive input from the guys who attended our courses last year to improve the structure and contents of the training programmes. Here's looking forward to a very busy productive year of hard work... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:


Steve, I'll email you a Training Application form so long. Please fill it in and send it back so I can file it. Thanks. :thumbup:

Anton - Daar is nie 'n ge-akkrediteerde kursus vir Mei maand geskeduleer nie, weens ander verpligtinge, maar daar is wel 'n inleidingskursus op 14 OF 15 Mei afhangende van die belangstelling.

Chris - Die inleidingskursus sal op een van die 2 dae geskied, weereens afhangede van die belangstelling. Die permitfooi is ingesluit by die R600. As jy 'n seisoenkaartjie het betaal jy nie die permitfooi nie en word dit afgetrek by die R600.

Clarence - Your pipe-car will be able to handle the water crossings at Atlantis. :twisted: :twisted:
