SPORTING REUNION

RHODESIAN-ZIMBABWEAN WORLDWIDE REUNION

SUNDAY 6 – 13 NOVEMBER 2005 .

 Since the beginning of the last century our tiny nation has produced some wonderful sporting heroes in swimming, diving, water polo, rugby, cricket, golf, hockey, shooting and many of the other sporting disciplines. We had world champions in motorcycling, a world no 1 golfer and cricketer as well as many national and international sport stars including the golden girls who won Olympic Gold at Moscow.

During the reunion week on the social side we intend holding a gathering for as many sports people as possible where old friends can meet regardless of the level of sport they played. It is also a time where we can remember and honour those who were/are truly great sport personalities.

On the sporting side we will be holding golf and bowls events for those who wish to play whilst they are here. If you are interested in playing kindly complete the details on the reunion questionnaire.

We also need your help in compiling a list of sporting stars as our records are scant and memories are fading. We would be grateful if you could expand on our list and we are asking for you to assist us with detailed information on any sporting great. This information if possible should include details of their sporting history and possibly a photograph on an A4 page so we can display it at the reunion. If you could sent any information on email to weapont@mweb.co.za or faxing us on 031 267 1542 or mail at 7 Barham Road , Westville. Our phone is 031 266 0836

So if you know of any sports people and other Rhodesians-Zimbabweans let them know we are having a “friendship week” where everyone is invited to enjoy a week of fun. Come on let get together one more time.
