Announcement of a small venue change for this meet!

Instead of at the lower deck, the meet will now be held in the lounge next to the upper deck of the Blue Crane Restaurant. I have discussed this with Val, and she said that the stairs would not be a problem to her. :D

It will be much more private than the lower deck, and end of April can already be chilly at night, in which case they will light the fires in the fire places as well! You also get a beautiful view of the dam from the upper deck, although all the birds would have gone to sleep by then I suppose. :dance: :dance:

The closing date for the booking is 12 April 2013! I thought a week before the time would be enough, but the manager of the Restaurant prefers two week's notice.

Looking forward to see you all there! :thumbs_up:

Hi Barry and Hilda! I see you have been super-efficient and have already added my name to the list. I will of course, be chauffering the guests of honour to the event as they will be staying with me in Pretoria!

Look forward to seeing you (though I hope we can get together before the April meet!).

Hi Guys and Girls! Where has all the time gone? Can you believe that this meet will take place in less than a month! :shock:

If there are any more Gautengers who want to attend, please let us know before 12 April 2013 at 12:00, because that is when I need to make the final booking. :thumbs_up:

It will be lovely to meet you all, and we are looking forward to it very much! :dance: :dance:
