Tshwane AR club was formed a couple of years ago to bring inexpensive AR events to members and community at a time when there was great interest in AR. We served this purpose with the dedicated support and effort from our members, however over the last year or two the interest in AR dwindled to the extent that is not viable to present such events any longer. Scouting and putting together an event is more fun than the event itself, but takes enormous effort and time from those members involved. Since neither the resources nor interest in participating in these event are prevalent we have come to a point that the club has served its purpose.
Members have moved into single disciplines like Mountain biking, Trail running and Orienteering and we keep on bumping into each other at these events. We have tried a number of options of which the multi discipline Fun AR proved the most successful, but still not to the level to continue doing so.
So, sadly after several discussions with committee members present and past we have decided to wind down the club. Obviously if there are members that would like to step up to the plate and make it work you are most welcome to discuss it with us.
I want to thank all those that contributed in a big way to make the club a success and names like Hardy, Thursia, Oupa Gert, Nigel, Nando, Brendan, Leon vd W, Leon S, Nadine, Alec, Willem, Carine, Nicol, Cobus, Daleen comes to mind. Also those I did not mention thank you for your contributions and participation.
We will continue seeing each other at events and maybe come up with something great.
Greetings from the current committee, Nando, Brendan, Leon, Francois
