One Community...helping each other
This week I had another opportunity to be the Tournament Director for the BMW International (National Championships). This is the 3rd time I have been the host Professional at the tournament and, in addition to be part of a world-class presentation, it give Liezl and me a nice getaway after season. The winners of the Men's A and B Divisions, as well as the Ladies' champion, advance to the International Finals (held last year in Dubai). That's pretty good prize for driving a BEEMER, right Dr Lynn Slogrove - she playing the International finals a couple of years ago.
While the tournament was on Liezl organized an educational trip to Simbithi with Kevern flying in for the day.
Our thanks to Malcolm Samuels and his team from Simbithi Eco Estate who welcomed Kevern and Liezl this week, to share thoughts focussing on access control, security, building control and communications. We have always had a close working relationship with Simbithi as well as other gated communities through our membership of the Association of Residential Communities. Sharing is caring and we love working with our colleagues in the industry!

EP Champs are up next - Road Trip planned for the 27th
We will, once again, host the best players in the Eastern Province for the 2018 EP Champs with 36 holes of medal play on the 27th and matchplay to follow. Come and watch as the golfers match their golfing skills to our fine test of golf.
The course will be closed but our Golf Shop team will assist with golf in the area.
