Miss Primavera e Pallino d'Oro al Club del Capo

Message from the President

Dear Members
What a difficult couple of months it has been for the club and many of our member families. We have had so many loved ones lost. A special tribute to Mr Fiorini who was a truly special man to our club. To all the other families and friends we hope that in some way the being in togetherness that the club offers us as an Italian community provided some comfort.

We are going into the celebrative period of the club with of course the 50 year celebration being a major focus point. We look forward to celebrating this big occasion with you in November. Christmas and New Years bookings are open and info will be available shortly.

What an exciting event was during this week end the Cheese festival presented by Miki Ciman and family.

Our new website will go live soon please keep a look out for this.

The renovations to the kitchen are almost complete and we will now focus on the sport and parking area.

Some inroads have been made with regards to the renewal of the lease and I hope to be able to give you some positive feedback soon.

Thank you for continuing to support our events and club. I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Messaggio del Presidente

Cari Soci
Che paio di mesi difficili è stato per il club e per molte famiglie. Abbiamo perso tanti dei nostri cari e amati soci. Un tributo speciale al Sig Fiorini che era un uomo davvero speciale per il nostro club. Per tutte le altre famiglie e gli amici ci auguriamo che in qualche modo che l’essere insieme il club offre conforto alla comunità italiana.

Stiamo andando verso un periodo celebrativo con, naturalmente, la celebrazione del 50.mo anniversario del Club che sarà il nostro obiettivo principale. Auguriamo di poter celebrare questa grande occasione con voi in Novembre. Per Natale e Capodanno le prenotazioni sono aperte e informazioni saranno disponibili prossimamente.

E poi questo fine settimana ci sarà il Cheese Fair organizzato da Miki Ciman e famiglia. Auguriamo a tutti grande fortuna con l’evento e si spera di vedervi numerosi durante i due giorni della fiera.

Il nostro nuovo sito internet sarà attivo fra poco e vi preghiamo di tenere d’occhio per questo.

I lavori di ristrutturazione nella cucina sono quasi completi e attualmente stiamo facendo manutenzione alle aree sportive e alla zona parcheggio.

Alcuni progressi sono stati fatti per quanto riguarda il rinnovo del nostro contratto di locazione e spero di essere in grado di darvi alcune notizie positive presto.

Grazie per il vostro sostegno e sopporto dei nostri eventi al club – e spero di vedervi presto!

Auguri / Best wishes

Serena Resente
It is with sorrow and grief as we look back at the life of a friend, a mother, a sister and a “Nonna”, Serena was so many things to so many people at the Club which she made her home while serving us all with that certain smile of hers. The one characteristic of Serena that stands out was her loyalty to the Club and the people for over 25 years, another quality was her ability to remember names which was a great help at club functions and also those who hadn’t paid subs and this was done without the help of a computer, and she did it with that certain Serena smile. She served the club in so many positions, as caretaker or events booking co-ordinator and in between this Serena enjoyed playing rummy and poker (not with club money) and if we closed our eyes for a moment I am sure we would see Serena with a cigarette in her mouth blowing smoke, playing rummy in the card room and drinking a cappuccino.

We know that life is not easy, it is a great challenge to place the needs of others before our own, and that is what Serena was able to do, we the management, members and friends of the Italian Club ex-tend our deepest sympathy to the family of Serena. May she rest in peace and may God bless her soul.

Miss Primavera

Mr & Miss Primavera is a well known annual beauty pageant which goes back to the early 1950’s. During the first couple of years the Italian Club of Cape Town (ICCT) would host a dinner dance at the beginning of spring and all the young Italian girls and boys would be called up onto the stage to dance around in a circle. The ones who received the loudest cheer were made Mr & Miss Primavera for that year.

As the times have changed, the Primavera event had become more popular. Today this is one of the most prestigious events that the ICCT hosts annually. Due to lack of male interest in the past, we ran the Primavera event with only young ladies, however this year we are wanting to re-introducing the “Mr” back into the event.

Our current title holder and winner of Miss Primavera 2015, Veronica Assirelli Zuccato (photo) is looking forward to handing over the crown to the 2016 winner.

The event will be held at the ICCT Bi-Centenary Event in November and will be attracting between 300-400 guests just as it has in the past. This includes the management committee and patrons of our Club, the Italian Ambassador to South Africa, the Italian Consul in Cape Town, various other dignitaries and well-known personalities.

Our Miss Primavera will also have the opportunity to represent the ICCT at the national Miss Italy South Africa contest which will be held in Johannesburg annually.

Applications are now open for all those young Italians (or Italian Descent) to take on that crown of Mr & Miss Primavera 2016.

This important bocce event will be hosted at our Club from 16th to 18th December 2016 and various teams from around the country will be competing for the Pallino D’Oro trophy.
The president of the bocce section Salvatore Uzzardi has nominated the following players to represent Cape Town:-

Bravetti, Carlo (Capitano)
Uzzardi, Salvatore
Grauso, Michele
Pagano, Mario
Bravetti, Pierina
Del Rossi, Carlo

We wish them all the very best and may they have an enjoyable and successful tournament
They are also looking for ladies to join the bocce section. If interested and for further information kindly contact Salvatore on 0724187185, thank you!
