Dear Members

Our educational visit to Avontuur last week was so rewarding and enjoyable, I thought you would like to go and visit them if you have not already done so.  It really has a lovely ambience and Cobie van Oort will make you so welcome and will take care of your guests very well.

I am sending to you a list of the packages they offer and an enrolment form.  Cobie asks that if you go there you should fax the form to her first, on Fax:  021 855-4600, so she can advise you what is on offer.  If you are driving past and just happen to call in, do make known that you are a CTGA member as she will be very pleased to meet with you.

I hope you will find it well worth your while – we certainly did!
