SLTC Convention cancelled again

A statement by Björn Jönsson, President of the SLTC (SA Section)
At a committee meeting of the SLTC (SA Section) held on March 08, 2021, we took the sad decision to cancel the planned 2021 Convention.
      We believe that nobody would want to spend all day in a room full of possible Corona virus transmitters even if we all wore masks. It would also be a much less sociable gathering than what we have become used to for the past 67 conventions.
      We have very little faith that the global community will be open enough for people to travel to SA and within SA. To add to this is the slow rollout of vaccines. If it had been more rapid, perhaps it could have aided us to hold a safe convention, but alas, it was not to be.
      Therefore we are now looking forward to May 2022 when we can all gather and enjoy the convention as we have done so many times before. The venue will be at the Green Leaves Country Lodge & Venue at Hartbeespoort in Gauteng.
      The exact date has not yet been set, but will be announced by early 2022, when we can predict a safer timing of the event.
      Please all stay safe.
