Annual high-tea

Ladies enjoy the high-tea.

On 17 August, the branch hosted its third annual high-tea for ladies in the instrumentation and control field. Due to the high level of interest the event had to be moved to a bigger venue this year. Graceland Casino and Country Club was chosen and the staff there assisted us in hosting our biggest and best high-tea to date.

The hall was beautifully decorated and upon arrival all of the tables were overflowing with delicious treats to suit the high-tea theme. This year the focus was on networking and what better way than including fun activities. SAIMC president, Annemarie van Coller, kicked-off the event by giving a recap of all the important activities that the SAIMC is driving and how anyone can get involved. Next, Estelle van Staden gave a talk on the importance of coaching and mentoring in the industry, as well as in life.

Two of the highlights were the EDRO robot demonstration and a competition whereby each table had to program a robot to navigate itself through a maze, the team to complete the task first won the challenge. The day was closed with a live cooking demonstration where executive chef Johan van Zyl taught the ladies how to fold and cook samoosas and spring rolls, with different fillings. Each guest left with new friends, a smile, and a take-away box full of delicious samoosas and spring rolls to show off at home.

The branch thanks the following sponsors for making this event possible: Proconics, Beckhoff, Mundells Hairdressing, Rootz Boutique Spa @ Graceland and the Graceland Country Club.
