    Default Silicon Smelters and Round Table 4x4 Charity event

    Silicon Smelters and the Polokwane Round Table is hosting a 4x4 Charity event/Safari on Saturday 24 October. Being a charity event it is not cheap to enter and only 36 vehicles can enter.

    The vehicles will start from Silicon Smelters' property from where they will travel to the Wolkberg area where Silicon has some farms.
    It will not be a very technical route but rather a 4x4 fun day with 10 points where the vehicles will have to stop and the participants have to complete some type of challenge.

    The finish will be at Silicon Smelters again and there will be a prize giving function and dinner for sponsors and participants the evening.

    As soon as I have more details I will post it here. If anybody is interested they can pm me and I will also contact them with more detail.

    Henris praat jy van "VAN" Silicon se computer tech. Indien wel ken ek hom ook al omtrent 15jr.

    Hoekom is julle nie die naweek by die Olifants nie? Het net gou P'burg toe gekom vir n paar goedjies maar is weer oppad. Het gisteraand lekker reen daar gehad (Deur-nag) en daar is nou heelwat water in die rivier.
    Sal pics Sondag opsit. Cheers

    Dis jammer. Ek sou graag van die local ouens in persoon wou ontmoet. Het nog nie eintlik iemand in die 4x4 community hier ontmoet vandat ek hier is nie (Julie maand)

    I'll be seeing you there on the 24th.

    Has the course at least got some challenging obstacles?

    I honestly don't know yet. I will be driving the route with the route organizers before the time, so I will let you know.

    Yes, the one and the same.

    What teams are they talking about? Is 1 team, 1 vehicle?

    We just got back from Mana Pools so the Olifants trip was to close.

    I am thinking about this one. Probably get my son to co-drive. (Note, co-drive. Not drive)

    Default Fun Day

    The Round Table guys are known for their good organising skills so I believe this will be another great event. There will definitely be a few surprises as well.

    Kom nou, ondersteun die manne en kom ry saam. Dit gaan n great dag wees.

    HenriS die spanne kan tot uit 4 persone bestaan. Die detail is in een van my vorige post waar ek die aansoek vorm aangesit het.
    Dit gaan nogal 'n lang dag wees met die eerste voertuie wat omtrent half ses vanaf Silicon Smelters sal weg trek. Dit eindig weer by Silicon.
    Die inskrywings gelde sluit in ontbyt die oggend voor die wegspring, verversings langs die pad en 'n spitbraai die aand by die prys uitdeling.
    Indien iemand meer inligting benodig kan hulle my pm dan gee ek my nommer sodat ek die inligting kan oorgee.
    Ek gaan een van die punte beman (Kyk vir die ou rooi Ford F250) en sal dus nie self ry nie.

    To everybody who participated a heartfelt thank you. Everybody who I spoke to afterwards indicated that they enjoyed it very much. We collected over R100,00.00 which will be distributed to charity. Thank you again and hope to see you there again next year.
