AFA (Cape) Christmas Dinner 2012

The Christmas dinner was held at "Tony' Hideaway" on Saturday, 15th December.

The main meal being a 'sheep on a spit', salads and delicious desserts and more importantly the company of those that we had served together which resulted, as per normal, in a lot of leg pulling and good fun.

One of the highlights of the evening was that Ken de Goveia arranged for a barman, Raymond, from the Cape to Cuba Restaurant to look after the thirsty. Raymond was kept busy making cocktails and other drinks. Raymond hails from Umtali.

Trisha and I along with daughter Denise (out from Canada) attended 

Tony Cowell and André Sely provided the photographs, not in any order, and apologies for any errors with names.
