    Will this be a event that will be repeated in the future? During the winter months?

    I don't see why not; but possibly a different route. Sunday is my first event as planner, so let's see how it goes. If all goes well (obviously I will learn a few lessons), and there's interest I would be more than happy to organize another one. And will be happy to entertain suggestions for both routes and lunch venues. Even picnic spots with large braai areas might be preferable.

    Sorry, all, I was a bit slack over the weekend - I will get on to an updated map ASAP. I see the one on post #15 does NOT show the intended route properly; I must have copied the URL at a wrong point while I was still in the planning stage!

    Hopefully by tomorrow morning!

    For those who like to play with coordinates, please see above. I haven't plotted the actual route through Parys, and be aware that I may choose to go through the "suburbs" as opposed to the main (busy) route through town. So please make sure you have the final coordinates of De Vette Mossel plotted in your SatNav, Garmin or whatever.

    Please also check post #1 for your details, and make sure I have them correct as to numbers of people? De Vette Mossel has "hinted" at full payment upfront, but I'm going to try and negotiate a deposit rather; either way I'd like a fairly accurate idea of numbers. To be honest, I can't blame them as we're a big group and I'm sure they've turned away people to accommodate us. So if a significant number of people do not turn up, that's business they could have had. Please let me know ASAP!

    When you arrive, please let them know you're part of the 4x4 community forum group using either Ama-newbie or Rob as your reference. I will ask them to tick off your names on arrival.

    Time : 10:00 sharp, until about 16:00

    Where : De Vette Mossel, Parys

    Why : To have more of a "meet and greet" and have a chance to chat and get to know each other better.

    Who : You and your family (if you're on speaking terms)

    What : Softroaders, mediumroaders and hardroaders (are those words??)

    How : Get to Parys using as little tar as we can


    Preliminary plan (to be updated after a recce)

    Meet at Baragwanath Airfield, leaving at 10:00 sharp. Drive to De Vette Mossel in Parys on gravel as much as possible. Gravel travel should be about 2 hours, including a few small detours to make the scenery a bit more interesting and avoid tar. More about the route next week after a recce. We need to be seated and settled by 13:00 latest. We should finish eating by about 15:00, afterwards make your way home at leisure.

    De Vette Mossel more info : https://parys.devettemossel.co.za/

    The venue is on a smallholding, and is under an afdak, so it's open to the air (desirable in these times). The food is brought out as a series of courses, in buffet style. The theme is to bring a coastal beachfront restaurant inland, so barefoot is recommended. There is a small splash pool for the kids. Do NOT expect crystal glasses and bone china; you're meant to be on a beach!

    There is a small bar (alcohol ban permitting!) with fairly limited stock, but you are totally permitted (in fact encouraged) to bring your own cooler box. Please drink responsibly; it's likely that most of us will have a long drive home.

    Please advise when responding on this thread on how many pensioners (I assume that means over-60), how many adults, high school, primary school and pre-school kids. Also advise if you plan to drive in the convoy, or meet us there...

    Sorry about the guys dropping out - but understood. Maybe some new people would like to take their place?

    Just a few notes, as the day approaches :

    The dirt road journey should take between 2 and 2,5 hours. There are no places to stop for the ladies to take a bathroom break, so please factor that in when you leave home!

    It looks like there has been a fair amount of rain in the area. While that will help to keep the dust down, it IS mostly dirt road so be careful if it is slippery. There is a short section of about 200m that had been churned up before I did my recce; this section might be tricky if it has been raining hard, but I don't believe it will be impassable. It IS a public road. But as an extra precaution will those that have please bring tow straps.

    I managed to get my radio working, and will be using ORRA channel 3 for the trip. Please take note of my cellphone number in the image in post #67 in case you don't have a radio.

    I have been informed that the venue is pet friendly, so if you have a small pooch you may bring him/her along with pleasure. But please let's not turn this into an animal show-and-tell.

    Since the road may be damp, in the interests of safety I would like the convoy to leave promptly at 10:00, from Baragwanath Aerodrome, so please get there in good time. If you are late, then please meet us at the venue, driving safely of course. The serving starts at 13:00.

    Please pay individually when you get there, letting Karin know that you're part of Rob or Ama-newbie's group. Karin will tick your names off a list as you do. Prices are on their website, as per post #1.

    There is no corkage fee, so feel free to bring a cooler box with your favourite beverages. As mentioned before on the thread, we have a long drive home so please drink responsibly! We are also representing the forum, so please also take that into account.

    De Vette Mossel tries to create a beach atmosphere, so shorts, T-shirts and slops or barefoot are the order of the day. There is a small splash pool for the kids to cool off in - weather permitting.

    Please check your number of attendees in post #1, and let me know ASAP if I have them wrong. I plan to send the final numbers for catering purposes to Karin tomorrow by lunch-time.

    Most important of all, let's have fun and enjoy the kuier!
