next visits in this calender year will be SOUTH AFRICA next week and
SWITZERLAND, end of October, where the RegioTriRhena- Meeting will take
place. Unfortunately I have to miss the AGM in

year in spring I will try to take part in all AGMs till Capetown, but it
will not be possible to me to visit all member associations, because I
have only 11 month available in my President´s year. I am sorry about
my visits I had to deal with a lot of demands concerning to important
matters of our organization, as there are:
AMBASSADORS EXCHANGE PROGRAMME
am happy to present you the new YAP-Zone
Coordinator in Europe
MENIVAL, France. I
have decided the change of this position in consultation with the Int.
Officers and by agreement with the previous Zone Coordinator OTTO

also have to thank Otto, who is not present today, for his pioneer-work

10 years ago and has done his job well.
PRESENTATION OF CLUB 41
have to thank RENATO BONFINI and his team for the perfect installation of
the CLUB 41 GENERAL FREE SITE.
will find there the Club 41 Int.2000/01 Official Page with reports,
statements, photos and the mailing list with the e-mail-adresses of nearly
100 41-ers at the moment; besides a lot of informations, concerning the
club-events of international and local relevance, etc.
am sure that this medium will be an important instrument for the benefit
of Communication in 41 International. The only disadvantage is, that not all 41-ers, even at the level of the
national boards, are in possession of a PC with internet.
41-INT. SECRETARY AND TREASURER
of Freddy - point 10. of the
WORKING GROUP OF TABLERS
have received some statements in response to the presentation of the
elaboration of the group-work in Graz.
point of view of the Board of 41-International is, that they can discuss
all matters arising concerning our organization.
even opinions should conform to the rules of 41 International. Therefore I
have written my comment to the chairman of the MIWT as follows:
Club 41 is an organization for Ex-Tablers.
do not agree with the wording „Club 41 is a club of former Round Table
members and their friends.“
41 is no Serviceclub and we have no intention for change.
concerning this matter should be held at the IRO´s meeting in the
to the end of my report I am looking forward to meeting all of you at the
AGM of 41 International in Capetown, end of April 2001.
always think on my motto: TOGETHER
WE ARE STRONG
