Dear DUC and DSBC Members
It has been a unique and interesting past year for the club with the effects and consequences of COVID on the club and its members as well as the relocation of the club to its new permanent location. Although there are still lingering concerns and protocols around COVID, the club has started to settle into its new premises and routine. As a result, the club has received strong support from members and is currently running a waiting list for new applicants wanting to join you having fun in the sun.
Below are some social events for the club planned by Lizell, the club entertainment co-ordinator, that will help you to meet and greet your fellow members as well as get more value and enjoyment for your club membership.

It is hoped that the teams representing the various club sections that took part in the volleyball comp will continue their participation in this event and extract revenge for their losses to other teams in the volleyball.

SCUBA Diving Section Update
Another sign that the club is starting to settle into its new skin is that the SCUBA Diving section of the club now has a dedicated equipment room with compressor, nitrox , equipment hire and repair facilities. There is also a dedicated kit up room with equipment cleaning facilities.
If you were once a warrior diver and would like to get back into the sport, consider doing a Refresher Course:
Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher?
The Scuba Refresher program is the perfect way to update your dive skills and knowledge regardless of your accreditation from your beginner Diver Course before jumping back into the water. Whether you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, our Scuba Refresher is personalized for you. It’s quick and easy and a good way to prepare for your next course or get ready for a diving holiday.
MEMBER REFRESHER PRICE: R550
Contact Sarah: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the these courses as well as the club SCUBA Diving section.
Club COVID concerns
A year ago neighbours were reporting each other to the COVID police for having braais on their driveways or for exercising in public places.
Today the situation is different but the same as well.
As COVID “fatigue” sets in and we start to relax, we tend to forget that we should still be concerned about how we observe the COVID protocols as COVID is still a clear and present danger as the current dire COVID situations in places like India and South America can attest to.
To protect our staff and members, the club has made it a standard operating procedure that staff must always wear masks and must not serve members who are not wearing a mask.
Staff are under instruction of receiving a warning if they do not adhere to the SOP in this regard. The managers are also instructed to remind members politely to wear their masks while in the clubhouse if they come across a member not doing so.
As we start to ramp up the entertainment and social activities of the club, there is the danger that we will start to disregard COVID protocols, especially when alcohol is involved. Please do not give the staff a hard time if they refuse to serve you if you are not wearing a mask – members will be at risk of having their membership suspended if found doing so.
Please always wear a mask while in the clubhouse.
Blast from the past
About every 11 years (or so we are told) the yearly calendar is the same. Attached is an advert for the River Gardens Hotel in Amanzimtoti on which the dates and corresponding days are exactly the same as this coming weekend. It must be very old, as there is no mention of Mother’s Day ( an indication of the recent trend of commercialisation of celebration days) and for R3 you get a plate of food and get to see and hear the Blarney Brothers play.
Any idea what year this was?
We look forward to seeing you at the club
The PWC Team
