There is an unusually fine spirit of comradeship among our members. There is something
about the common love of mountains and the veld, which binds us in an unusual way. I have
never experienced this spirit in any other organization.
Desmond Polack, 1952 Chairman’s Report

Desmond’s vision and leadership contributed greatly to the setting up of the then EPMC.
And the spirit that Desmond talked of is still very alive today, and plays a major role in the strength and success of the Club.
