    Default Gauteng West XIII - April/May 2012 Trip - Eastern Cape Invasion

    What: Gauteng West will be heading down to PE from around 27 April to about 5 May 2012.

    Where: Oyster beach, mainly.

    Why: Well;
    • Why not?
    • To return the compliment paid by Juan, Zantus & Dirk who attended Gauteng West's functions.
    • So Gautengers can meet the PE chapter.
    • Cos, there's no thirst like Bathurst...
    • Celebrate Tinkerbell's birthday.
    • So Shakex & Fanfan can visit the homeland.
    • But mainly, for an excuse to get out of Gauteng for a few days!
    Other details: The PE region will arrange some activities & will obviously hold what they call a 'GTG' to co-incide.
    Hopefully Dirk will make attendance by the PE members compulsory.
    Juan 'Bos Toe' will do a potjie (that alone is worth the trip).
    Obviously more info & ideas will unfold as the time draws closer & the fuel price rises.

    Who:

    So far...
    1. Mad Manny (Manny)
    2. RynoB (Ryno)
    3. Fanatic & Tinkerbell (Regardt & Elzette)
    4. Flagster & Wends (Franz & Wendy)
    5. Swambo Love & Broomdriver (Pieter & Adrie)
    6. Shakex2 & Swambo (Thabang & Trish)
    7. 4x4 Fan x far (Fanfan)
    8. Wessie69 & Swambo (Steven & Jo-Dene)
    9. .
    Anyone else who wants to join in...

    Gauteng West XI & Gauteng West XII: These will be held in February & March (respectively) next year.
    This post has 'jumped the proverial gun' as there's a lot of interest & as this is a longer trip, a longer planning period is required.

    Franz, I dunno, does Juan have 8 different Potjie recepies?


    Let's check;
    1. Oxtail
    2. Chicken
    3. Lamb
    4. Game
    5. Curried Pork
    6. Beef
    Nah, only six...



    Eurard, no hassels, I'm sure others will come & go at different times.
    As long as everyone is there on the 27th, cos that's when PE must hold there 'GTG'...
    (A 'GTG' is a lot like a Gauteng West function, just smaller & less organised)...

    Bet you Fanatic posts next!

    I like what I see!

    Within 15km's of Oysterbay, there are two sand trails, the legendary Brakkeduine and the currently infamous Kershoutlaagte. Dirk and I will hopefully be doing our bit soon to help spruce up Kershoutlaagte and make it more user friendly.

    About 100km's from Oysterbay is the Patensie/Baviaans area and we will have to take you to one of the trails in that area....we'll decide closer to the time, which one.
