Gauteng Meet - Braai at Rietvlei

Unread postby WendyA » Wed Mar 21, 2012 3:31 pm

A few of us have been talking about arranging another get-together at Rietvlei on Saturday 21 April. To date there's myself, Cheetah2111, Flutterby, Barryels and Hilda and we'd love to see as many other "forum friends" as possible. :dance: :dance: :dance:

No definite plans as yet apart from the date, but maybe something along the lines of meeting up at either the picnic spot area or the area by the cafe (braais available at both sites) late morning/midday-ish and spending the afternoon there. If we all bring our dop and chop, then once we know who can make it, we can arrange stuff like charcoal, fire lighters, salads, bread rolls, etc ...

Please leave a note here or you can PM me so we can get an idea of numbers then finalise things closer to the date.

Hope to see as many of you as possible! :D :D :D

I am going to try to take the whole day off. It would be great to just have a relaxing time catching up.

I have counted at least sixteen (16) mites that is resident in Pretoria that could attend the meet. I know that we are all busy on a Saturday, however me and Hilda will surely be there by 14:00 !! Would love to meet all the mites in person :dance: .

Wendy, depending on Scipio's tours, we would like to attend, but will only be able to confirm closer to the time. :thumbs_up:

MM - will be awesome if you can take the whole day off and spend time chilling with us!

Barryels - let's hold thumbs for as many Gauteng mites as poss!

PetraJ - hope you and Scipio will be able to make it ...

Rooies - :lol: :lol: :lol: You must try and make one of the meets at some stage to share Kruger stories rather than just browse through albums of previous Kruger trips!

Radman - :( :( :( Oh well, maybe another time. We are definitely going to arrange another meet in winter as Anri can't make this one either.

Cheetah2111 - Aussie babe???!!! :o :o :o

DavenJan - Enjoy your time on the beach. As I said to Radman, we will organise another get together in winter ...

C'kie,
There is a big and very nice picnic area at the Maraisdam in the reserve with a Birdhide in the picnic area. You can also have a look there (think Wendy mention that). Will post a photo later.

:D :D

Cheetah,
Those of us who wants to start early can have a breakfast at the coffee shop (where the "green" braai took place)

then late brunch at the Maraisdam picnic area

and a evening braai at Tshukudu

:D
