Hi all,

Aftr the issues we had towards the end of last year with the venue in Pomona we started looking for a new venue and held the year end GTG at Safari Centre Boksburg.

The reception & support we received their was great and most people I spoke to were keen to go back there so we had the first GTG there last night, again, great support from Piet & his team.

After discussing it with the memebrs who arrived, it was decided that Safari centre Boksburg would be the permanent home of the 4x4Community Gauteng East monthly GTG .

The GTG's are held on the first Thursday of the month so the next few are scheduled for :

4th March
1st April
6th May


Please diarise.

It was also decided to have a speaker where possible who will chat to us in an informal manner about a topic of interest. it could be a product, a trip report, a conservation issue etc, not more than 10min and very informal.

The venue is nice in that there is space for us inside if the weather plays up, it is relatively central to the East Rand and the vibe is friendly. Typically the east GTG's have been family orientated with mostly couples coming through and bringing the kids with, we like this and wish to encourage it.

Normally, the fires, plates etc, pap, sous & slaai is supplied, bring your chairs & drinks, there are cooldrinks available for purchase. Typically, braai paks are R50 per person. Fires are normally ready by 7pm.
