Slide show - club evening

The first presentation which Peter Faugust, the slide show specialist, organised was in December 1980 and he has never missed a month - congratulations.

May 1989 saw the 100th slide show and in October 1997 the 200th show was enjoyed. On 14 February 2006 Peter Faugust was congratulated on his dedication to the JHC - he has organised the slide shows for 25 years and this was the 300 show - well done.

The slide show/club evening is held on the second Tuesday of every month (first Tuesday in December, due to holidays) at 19h30 sharp, unless otherwise indicated in the prgramme. The venue is The Floreum, the Botanical Gardens, Olifants Road, Emmarentia.  The fee, as stated in the programme, includes tea/coffee and a variety of the best cakes in town, which are served after the slide show.

Venues have changed, starting off at the Council for Adult Education in Parktown, then at the Mountain Club of South Africa's club house in the grounds of the Old Fever hospital and finally at the present venue of the Floreum, Emmerantia.

The choice of presenters has always been outstanding as well as their subjects ranging from animals to spiders, hikes to mountain climbers and venues from all over the world, in fact, any subject which is of interest and where the presenter has excellent slides.

So if you have nothing to do on the second Tuesday of every month (member or non member) please come along and join in - you won't be disappointed.
