Ikeys conquer South Pole

IAIN BUCHAN and PETER BERNING, lst Team UCT Rugby players and UCT graduates in the 70’s invite you to a talk in the UCT RFC Pub about their successful walk to the South Pole.

After 40 years of dreaming and scheming, Iain Buchan and Dr Pete Berning, two Ikey’s rugby Old Boys who made their mark in the early 1970’s, fulfilled a lifelong ambition to trek to the South Pole.  In January, they took part in a six-man team of South African adventurers who walked 111km across Antarctica in “The Unlimited Child South Pole Expedition”.  See the link www.theunlimitedchild.co.za
