It’s been an up and down process in the last month, and organising a major event takes a lot of effort.
A week ago, the sponsors of MBC Magazine pulled out and resulted in the magazine closing shop.
This week, another hard decision is on the cards. This time, the decision on the R175 000 Canal Walk event needs to be made. The event has attracted 1o sponsors, a radio station and roughly 10 000 visitors, but sadly not a single member from the RC society; not even after offering them R1 000 to participate.
On the 4th of March, CapeWest needs to make the call to change its stance on “who gets to join” the Club, and all indications are that it will become an exclusive group of dedicated RC Modellers and Sailors, removing the driftwood and getting more open-minded people involved.
The frustration that led to the formation of CapeWest is now becoming its own, and it is no surprize that the participation levels are at an all-time low.
It was Helen Keller who once said, “The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.”
And CapeWest is not without vision when it comes to promoting RC Boating in the Western Cape.
