Knocking On Heavens Door Reunion

Date Released: Wed, 9 November 2016 16:03 +0200

Our Knocking on Heavens Door group (1965 to 1975) organised THE BIG PULL Reunion for the weekend of the 30th September.  Over 40 Old Rhodians from all over the world made the big pull to Port Alfred for the weekend.  The group met at the Royal Alfred Golf Club for a meet and greet braai on the Friday evening which served as an opportunity for informal Club meetings (Club 15 and League of Gentlemen) to be held at the same time.  Saturday saw many gather for a game of golf, whilst others drove to Grahamstown for a campus tour.  On Saturday night, a Dinner was held at the Kowie Ski Boat Club and by that time the stories and reminisces were flowing and new memories were being created.  The weekend was a resounding success and special thanks to Christine Tapson for organising and coordinating all of the activities.  Johnno Green and Porky Hogge were the main instigators and Fred Lucas was the efficient Finance Minister, which ended in a donation of R4000 being donated to Rhodes University for Bursaries. It has been decided that in 2020, the weekend will be repeated for THE FINAL COUNTDOWN.
