Bush Baptist will be in Pretoria on Thursday, 27 and Friday, 28 November 2014, before he returns to Cape Town early on Saturday morning. Since there are quite a few ‘mites living in Pretoria and vicinity, how about meeting him at the Blue Crane Restaurant for dinner on Friday, 28 November 2014 at 18:30 for 19:00 at the Lower Deck?

Since I am from the “old school”, I like to arrange things long before the time to ensure that everybody has enough time to decide without already having other appointments. The Blue Crane is located on the waterfront of one of the lakes of the beautiful Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary, is not too pricy and their food is good. I will post directions closer to the time.

I need to know more or less how many people will attend before I make a booking.

All expenses will be for your own accounts.

Everybody in Gauteng (and anywhere else) is welcome! Please add your names, and let's make Bush Baptist's Gauteng experience a joyful one, filled with Gauteng hospitality! We in Gauteng are due for a Meet anyway!

I'm pretty sure you can put myself and Jax down as attending, hilda. Barring any unforeseen business trips, that is.

Looking forward to finally meeting BB :)

Hi Hilda,
I will speak to Mads, but you can put down our names. I am fairly sure that we will attend.

Love
Rina

Looking forward to meeting you very much BB!! :dance: :dance:

We have made a tentative booking today, since it is during the time for Christmas parties, and we were concerned that the restaurant would be fully booked if we wait too long! That is done and we can just confirm the amount of guests 10 days before the time! :thumbs_up:
