Ten members of the matric class of 1968 and one of 1967 joined John Trollope (1968) at his game farm near Thabazimbi in April.  After finishing varsity John and his younger brother Peter went back to their parents’ cattle farm near Thabazimbi. John and Peter started an earth moving business which contracted to the mines in the area. Trollope Mining Services has just celebrated 40 years in business and has done very well. The cattle farm was eventually converted into a game farm and further farms were  acquired over the years. Various types of game are bred for sale.  A great  weekend of reminiscing, braaiing and game watching was enjoyed by all.
