UCTRFC 200 Club Black Tie Dinner

The Annual UCTRFC 200 Club Black Tie Dinner
was held at the
Cape Sun on Friday 17 August 2007.

uct_blacktie01.jpgThe dinner was well attended with over 300 people being entertained by the
guest speaker, comedian Paul
Slabolepsky, who is a former UCTRFC rugby player. His
amusing speech also had some poignant moments as Paul recounted stories of his
UCT student days during which he met his stage partner of many years, Bill Flynn, who sadly has passed away
recently. It was fitting that a table of Paul’s former team mates were able to
be present at the dinner. Paul was ably assisted on stage by MC Mike Wills who kept the proceedings
flowing.

townships in
Cape Town.
