Message from The Chairman
Good evening Jocks and friends,
The best laid Plans of mice and men Etc. Etc.
We, your Committee feel that it is prudent to postpone the First Sunday “Bring and Braai” due to the Covid-19 virus.
This is not a panic situation decision, but we are aware that many of the members that would have attended are at a very vulnerable age.
Under the circumstances we will not revert to the first Monday, in fact all Association activities are as of now, postponed for the short to medium term future. We will re evaluate after the Easter weekend .
Please be sensible and take all reasonable precautions.
Trevor (Porky) Wright
Chairman ~ Transvaal Scottish Regimental Association
