SARL 2024 AGM: Come on Team CTARC, Let's do this!!!

The SARL 2024 AGM and Awards Dinner is to be held in Cape Town this year, and the CTARC has agreed to be the host for this event.

The event will take place at the Garden Court Hotel, Nelson Mandela Boulevard, with easy access from the N2 and free off road parking.


Friday evening there will be a welcome Cheese and Wine in the hotel pub area from 17:00 to 19:00, which the CTARC will be sponsoring for SARL members and partners attending the AGM. (free) to CTARC members, and SARL members and partners.


Saturday Morning 9am to 1pm in the conference room at the hotel will be the AGM. Tea and coffee will be served. (There is no charge for attending the AGM).


Registration details are on the SARL website (http://www.sarl.org.za/). PLEASE go onto the site and register TODAY!  The SARL AGM needs a quorum to go ahead, and you need to book your seat for this and /or the other events.  So far, we are extremely disappointed at the low registration from our CTARC members.  We need you to come out and represent your club.


Also, by attending the AGM you could be in line to win a REDELL UV97 New Generation Dual Band Radio with the programming cable included.  This radio was kindly donated by Bombastik Radio Accessories. 


The afternoon on Saturday will be at leisure and a shuttle bus has been arranged to take delegates and their guests to the Waterfront.  There will be a small charge for this.

The CTARC Clubhouse will be open that afternoon from 14:00 until 16:00 for any delegates who wish to visit the CTARC's clubhouse in Rondebosch.  ZS1TK's 'RF Cafe' will be open for refreshments.  Transport to the clubhouse I’m sure can be arranged if necessary. 


Saturday evening is the Gala Awards Dinner, 18:30 arrival for 19:00.  This year it will be a 3 course buffet dinner with tea and coffee included.

The cost of the dinner has been set at a very reasonable R300.00 per head.


Sunday Morning the out-of-town delegates will prepare to head home after breakfast.


This is the first 'live event' since Covid and we really want to make the CTARC 'shine' with as many of our members attending all or at least part of the events on this auspicious 99th SARL AGM/Dinner weekend. 


Please diarise the date 19 to 21 April.
