A summary by Hannah-Reeve Sanders

This class reunion, which was held from 6-8 December 2002, attracted 30 classmates and their partners/spouses. They came from as far afield as London, Sydney, New York, Baltimore, Harari, Nova Scotia, Aberdeen (UK), Pretoria, Kloof, Klerksdorp, East London and, of course, Cape Town!
The graduating class in 1952 numbered 123 of us (9 females)! Regretably, 48 members of the class are deceased and four were not traced (Blaine, Reitz, Skorbinski & Viviers).
The "Academic" day was highly rated and went far beyond the 12 o'clock stopping time. Information on Orthopaedic Practice in Rural Newfoundland (Jimmy Osmond) and Medicine in the Wilds (Jimmy Thomas), Sex after 50 Years (Esther Sapire) as well as information from 2002 graduate, Alwyn Rapatso, kept everybody spellbound!
Overall rating of the weekend: 5 Star! Joan Tuff of UCT has part of the star rating and we ended with a small amount of money in the kitty!
