Chairman: Piet-Steyn Marais

Piet-Steyn Marais

Piet-Steyn is a true “Overberger”and has spent most of his adult life in Bredasdorp. Before becoming involved with Kaapjag, he served in the South African Air Force at the Overberg base close to Bredasdorp. It is not surprising then that Piet-Steyn, would be an avid fisherman since enjoying the good fortune of living near to the coast.

He is a humble man, but it is certainly noteworthy to mention that his biggest catch was a 53Kg Steenbras. He is as much a hunter as a fisherman and enjoys his annual hunts for venison with his trusty .280 Rem. As a founding member of the Overberg Branch of KAAPJAG, he has faithfully and selflessly served the cause for hunters and shooters in the Overberg, since 2000.  

Piet-Steyn has always had a special place in his heart for the hunters and shooters of the Overberg. He currently serves as the chairman of the branch, but we need to mention that this is not his first term in this position, as he has served before.

For more than 20 years, Piet-Steyn has seen the branch grow to a substantial size and will always acknowledge the role of his predecessors. He speaks dearly of men like late John Albertyn and George Traut who also contributed greatly to the success of the branch. Not to mention the role of Douw Willemse, who has served as secretary for the branch for the past 16 years.

This energetic and dedicated man is a true asset to Kaapjag and deservedly was elected an honorary life member to the Association.
