Hi guys, keep open the date 19/11/2016 (it's a Saturday). At this point it looks like it will just be a social gathering at Dylan's small-holding but will be worth your while.

We will also need to know how many are attending - the club will sponsor prizes or something for each attending club member.

Dylan will put up directions in due course on how to get there.

See you there! :winkx:

Andy beat me to it. Thank you.
Saturday 19 November 4pm.
Farm C22 Thornpark Smythlands Rd.

Can I ask the ladies to bring a salad per family.
Meat for yourselves
Drinks, well whatever you can handle
Depending on numbers we will be good for cutlery and crockery.
Kids are more than welcome. We have a few quads and push bikes for them to entertain themselves

There will be a mandatory 4x4 mini trail otherwise penalties will apply..... And no nothing stupid. We'll save that for later....

See you all soon

Hi Edge, anytime from about 3pm ..... you should be able to braai anytime from about 6pm if you want to get back home early - fires will be kept going, and you can camp and sleep over if you so wish / don't want to travel back late.

Thanx Andy,
Was thinking along the same lines, so will sleep over if okay with Dylan.
Have accomodation, so no need to travel at this time of year.
What about Jurgen on the list. I presume the smiling face with a thumbs-up, means Yes?
We must also know who will bring what salad. No good everyone bringing a carrot salad.
Give instruction on who must make which salad, so that there is no duplication.

Would rather sleep over at this time of year.
Someone must make a decision on what salad should be made by which couple, and then to let us know, before we all arrive with a carrot salad.
Was the smiley face and thumbs up not an indication that Jurgen will also be attending?

OK, we'll bring enough garlic bread for everyone. Someone can do a green salad, someone else can do a potato salad or a pasta salad or whatever .... you choose whatever it is you'd like to bring but just let us know here so that there is no duplication like Edge says. (First come, first choice. :D: )

Jurgen, how many will you be ... are your parents coming as well?

Tony, no excuses mate .... get your installation done before the weekend and we'll see you on Saturday afternoon! :D:

Has someone let Wade & Donne' know? I don't know if he received my e-mail. Are they coming?

Dylan, did you manage to get hold of Malcolm Wheatley?


What we have so far then is ...

Andy, Sheridene, Mark & Nicole (4)
Dylan, Delia, Teagan & Ethan (4)
Edge & Viv (2)
Jurgen & family (How many?)
Tony & Annemarie (2)
Wade & Donne' (waiting on response)


Ben and Bokkie, we're going to miss you - hope that you join the WC guys this year after relocating. :winkx:

Hi Edge. Yep, that's the one ..... just follow the 'main' road till you go down an incline and over the causeway (on the Google map above) - immediately after that there is a fork in the road, you turn right it winds a bit with a steep incline where-after it straightens out. The 2nd turn-off (right) takes you to Dylan's place. :winkx:

Thanks Dylan,
No plans in this for a brekkie on Sunday morning?
Come on Andy, you must take the lead in this type of thing.
Or is that what Craige Lines will be organising?
Have sent a message to Wade to find out if they will be attending.

Feedback from Wade is that they are already booked and paid for a week-end at Port Alfred, so give their blessings for a good time to the rest of us.

Sorry to hear that Wade won't be attending ...... and if Tony , Annemarie don't make it either we will be entirely without a Geer -box - so all revved up without going anywhere. :D:

Yeah, we can organise a breakie as well. I'm sure. Up to you guys, maybe X-treme Valley and play some crazy golf as well or go out along the McLeantown Rd to the Lion park (niether s too far from Dylan's place). Any other suggestions?

Andy,
We are easy and will do anything the majority decide on.
So will be happy to join in whatever gets decided on.
We have not been to the Lion Park, so will be happy if the decision is to go there,
but the majority vote will rule.
Sounds like the ruling party at their best.

unfortunately I have to pull out as my bakkie is not ready from the panel beaters. I would have only stayed for the braai as I'm working on Sunday morning. I doubt the rental ford car will make the farm road.

The farm road is not too bad, Craig. Lotsa people out there that use a 'platkar' on that road (I'll be going with the Rav), so you'll be fine if you change your mind.

Edge, I spoke to Dylan and he reckons that the breakfast idea is not too bad and will most likely join us. Otherwise it looks like no-one else has indicated that they will join us for breakfast so then we will go to the Lion park as per your preference.

What we have at the moment is,

Andy, Sheridene, Mark & Nicole (4)
Dylan, Delia, Teagan & Ethan (4)
Edge & Viv (2)
Jurgen & family (3)
Tony & Annemarie (2)
Wade & Donne' (not attending)
Craig (maybe?)

The weather is expected to play along nicely on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

Saturday should be about 25° from midday till 3pm after which it is expected to cool quite rapidly to 20° by 5pm and then more slowly to 16° by 10pm. Winds will be fresh SSW and starting to swing to WSW by late evening by which time it will have moderated.

Have some warm clothing on hand for the late afternoon / evening. The expected overnight low is 12° - a little low for this time of year but not unpleasant.

Sunday morning should be warming up to 19/20° in time for a latish breakfast (9.30 - 10.00am) with winds remaining light WSW from overnight, becoming moderate SE by midday. Temperatures are expected to peak to 24° at that time.

Lekker! :winkx:

Firstly, I wish to thank Dylan and SWAMBO for hosting a great evening and for really going the extra mile to make our little get together a great success. To Andy for arranging the event and also to our members who attended for a fantastic evening.
I went to bed with the fowls and litterly awoke early, with the roosters trying to get things going with the hens in the henrun. (about 5 metres from my camper ).

I made a point of parking my camper far away from Edge and Viv's camper to give them breathing space as I believe the new OME syspention in their camper still has to wear in and the noises created from the wind on the movement on their syspention might have kept me awake.

Thanks again for a great evening all.

On our journey back home,we could not stop talking about the great crowd we met and atmosphere. Thanks again all for a fantastic time. Next meet up...Baviaans :laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2:

Craig, next time maybe your wife will not be as busy with other functions.
You nearly missed the function on your doorstep,
Baviaans may be a problem for you.
You organise the next one to ensure your attendance.
Andy,
Sherry must also stop her excuses,
We missed her wit and chirps.
Your daughter and Mark also had lame excuses after a great outing last year.

Hehe ... can't win them all. Ja, I also think that Nicole and Mark could have made it with a small re-arranging of their schedule, but Sher was definitely 'out of it' - she had been keen, but just not up to it on the day. :winkx:
