On November 14th last year, 15 SACS Old Boys came together in Melbourne for a few drinks, dinner and laughs at Squire’s Loft, a Melbourne-based South African steakhouse chain. It was once again a roaring success, with this being the largest attendance in Melbourne since 2011. Each year we seem to acquire new attendees, with Old Boys coming out of the woodwork and re-connecting with the school after many years. This year, we had 3 new guys and 2 from interstate, which means the word is getting out that this is a great night and that we are (slowly) catching up to Sydney’s 50-plus members! Look out!”
Here is the list of attendees
Peter Abramson 1977
Colin Sakinovsky 1977
Peter Venter 1979
Stephen Fraser 1982
Dan Sage 1985
Neil Denny 1989
Stephen Klugman 1989
Dion Slaughter 1990
Paul Hoffman 1990
Johan Pretorius 1994
Paul Harrison 1994
Bobby Koetser 1994
Rob Flude 1999
James Taylor 1999
Caleb Williams 2011
We certainly are growing! We had 4 guys pull out on the night too, but work or illness got in the way. One guy (Stephen Klugman) repeatedly failed to turn up year after year, but we finally got him to show up, and he was the star of the show! While we were at the pub before dinner, he was even texting another guy who didn’t even know about the chapter in Melbourne, but it was too late for him to attend. Next time!
Cheers,
Rob
