Progress Report on Waterfront Canal Challenge 2024

Project leader Spiro Mitchell provided a progress report on the Waterfront Canal Challenge 2024. Two extremely productive meetings had taken place, the first with Alderman James Vos, in person, and the second with Catherine Bothma of the PicknPay Schools club, on line. Both meetings had resulted in positive outcomes. Although Alderman Vos had indicated strong support, our Application for Event Support needed to first go to the relevant committee for consideration in order to be signed off by the Mayor. Once sponsorship is finalised a relevant MOU will be drafted and signed. The City of Cape Town could then come on as a primary partner, together with the V&A Waterfront and the the Rotary Club of Waterfront. Catherine was very enthusiastic about including a schools wave event and would provide names of suggested schools from their data base. 

Call to Action – Crew Involvement and Event Planning

Spiro encouraged all crew to get involved, providing a plan of activities allocating crew to the various event management components. An update would be provided at each weekly meeting going forward on progress and where further help was needed. The activity list will be updated and circulated to all crew. With only two organisational months left to plan the event, all crew need to put their shoulder to the wheel to ensure we produce an iconic event, also to show case our beautiful City.  

Webmaster Update – Surging Traffic to WCC 2024 Event Page
