2'nd GP Meet: May 2010

Unread postby Switchback » Mon Mar 08, 2010 12:11 pm

Hi all,

Ok, I think I've found a nice venue for our second meet where we could make almost a day out of it with picnic and everything: Tree Haven It's about 45 minutes from Sandton, hope the distance is no too far for most?

I've got two possible dates: 15 or 22 May 2010. Let's vote and fix a day later this week so that we all can schedule for the day.

It is far away... :cry: , but I have a few 4x4 events, hiking and of course my Kgalagadi trip :dance: happening in the next couple of weekends, so I won't be able to make it before then.

So, fixed for the 29'th then?

It's a little far away to know exactly which day I could come. However, about a month before I should know.

Are you all still ready for the 29'th?? :dance:

There is a coffee shop and for photographers, it's R50 for half a day and R100 for a full day. I guess it will not be possible to be there very early to get the best light for our photos, but there's something else i want to discuss and touch on... :hmz:

So, who's comming?

I think R22 for adults at WSBG, Switchback.

Oh, so if you pay R50 per head (I suppose children are cheaper?) you can stay half a day, while R100 per head gets you a full day?
