    Default Forum GTG 2021

    Hi everybody, due to personal reasons I have been out of the picture for a while and I hope that we can get the forum GTG up and running again. I would like to propose a weekend GTG to remember one of our great members and that has done a lot for all of us to get to know each other and that is a memorial weekend drive for Riaan van Wyk. I am sure there are many people that would like t take part in such an event. I would actually like to propose that we meet at the last spot where most people saw him the last time on an outing and that is to go to the oNgoye forest. I think the weekend of the 3rd to the 5th of July as a possible date for this. Lets discuss this so we can start with preparations for this event.

    This is a very good idea Heinz. Everyone who attended the previous gtg enjoyed the weekend, and the Ongoye trip will be great.

    This sounds great, have spoken to Marais and ST, (Sean) and they are both keen as well, I have given it long enough time for most people to get everything organized for that weekend, talk to your friends and also try to get Riaan's family involved. Lets make it a good one.

    YES, very interested - but at the same time very dependent on SWABO's current situation at that time.

    Difficult to make binding medium term bookings or commitment due to this.

    As the last time we saw Riaan at that very event, we would VERY MUCH like to attend and would again stay at a self catering venue which he actually put us into contact with at that time.
    It is abo
    XsaXa c park - or something like that.
    Aboutut 3 Km from the campsite in Mtunzini and we would again attend as day visitors.
    Riaan arranged last time for us to have a special dispensation to leave the campsite and park long after the normal closing hours while still paying the day visitor rate.
    Maybe this would be possible again.

    Unfortunately we cannot camp any longer due to SWAMBO's complications (Health and mobility issues).

    We so much miss all our 4x4 friends and acquaintances and would like to meet up with you all again.
    We would also be "BOK" for moderate 4x4 trails in our own vehicle or more challenging ones as passengers (Again depending on Erica's condition at that time).

    This lock down has been hard on us all and it would be so very good to socialize again albeit in a different and Covid responsible way.

    Yes, as far as possible - count us in - so keep us updated on this please.

    As long as it is not just before or just after a month end then we are not particular about dates or days / weekend / whatever - very flexible.

    If any help is needed to arrange - shout.

    As far as I am aware I think either SA Jeep (Marais) or Markus has the forum banner at this time.
    Thank you for this initiative - MUCH appreciated.

    Peter, the banner is not with me or Markus, perhaps Gavin (Ad Rem) has it.

    Eeisch. Only 2 weeks after we get back from 23 days away in Bots. Going to be a bit of a sell on the home front. Dates noted, will advise as we go.

    OK folk.
    Please assist in solving the riddle.
    Who has the banner and related items (Poles, ropes, pegs) ?

    It was last used at the KZN mini GTG at Mtunzini just before we lost our main man.
    I normally look after and maintain the banner at my home in Pinetown, however since we were staying at a self catering unit in Mtunzini we were not present at the time it was taken down after the event.
    The arrangement was that it would find its way back to me for safekeeping sometime in the following weeks.

    Please assist.

    You can put me and my family down as tentative, will only be able to confirm closer to the date.

    As for the banner, I can't even remember seeing it at the last GTG!

    Hi there everyone, it seems we have temporarily misplaced the banner, if someone has it please notify us asap. I would like to ask anybody that has info regarding the camp sites, contact details etc. so we can start to organize this outing and for everybody to know where and when t book for. I am sure we are going to have a great outing.
    Any ideas on what to do and where to go will be appreciated.
    Lets make it happen.

    Maybe it is at Riaan's place?

    No, Hester says she does not have it.
    Just in case there is any confusion it is the one in the picture.

    Heinz, Riaan organised almost all those contacts etc.
    However Leeubok (Rickert) has some contacts there I think.
    Also SA Jeep (Marais) was involved as was Gavin (Not Ad-Rem - Other Gavin.)

    It is the SANPB Camp in Mtunzini.
    Contact details as per last thread for that event.

    I will look it up and add below.
