A Gauteng Winter Meet?

Unread postby leervis » Thu Jun 04, 2015 5:37 am

As the Spring / Autumn meet was so successful, is anyone up for a winter meet? maybe with poitjies and soup? If not it might be time to plan the next Spring meet as we are only 3 months away from September.

Sounds great leervis! Then all the 'mites can practice for the Potjiekos Competition to be held on 3 October 2015! :dance: :dance:

Do you have a date and venue in mind? :D

Rietvlei was great so if everyone is comfortable with this venue lets do it. I know that the holiday season is approaching so maybe an early August date would work? I am open to suggestions on dates and venues so all chip in please.

Always game for a meet, some peeps suggested a change of venue eg Walter Sisulu (would need to be picnic though cannot braai there) but whatever you decide we are in if the date works for us.

I might be entering for the Skukuza marathon on the first August, so that weekend will be out for me. Isn't there a public holiday sometime in early August?

Sunday, the 9th of August is Women's day, which makes Monday, 10 August a public holiday. Apart from 22 to 30 August, we will be able to attend any other day in August. :thumbs_up:

Since it will be a potjie/soup menu, Walter Sisulu will not be a good choice, neither will the Botanical Gardens be. As Mellory has said, no fires allowed. I have no problem with Rietvlei, but if anyone knows about another venue, no problem at all. :D

We'll go with what you decide leervis! This is your meet! :dance: :dance:

That Monday the 10th. sounds like a good idea, but we may have a lot of mites away for the long weekend? We are ok up to the 25th and I think that Rietvlei might be good as fires are very important at this time of the year. Do like the idea of poitjies and soup!
