Bloekompoort as our CaravanParks.com Winter Rally suites me to a “T”.  Should we get the ball rolling on this one?

Please put your names down and I will contact the owners, or should we let Hessie get the ball rolling?

Outvoted Hessie – let’s see how many Forums Members put their names down this week for starters, and then You, Hessie can contact Boekompoort on Monday to start the booking procedures. OK?

Hey Hessie.

So now you are passing the buck back to me?

No problem - I'll do youe work for you - cost you a lager.

(David, thats the drinkable type, not laager!)

Heksie - It's in Vereeniging - see you this time?

Willie and the rest. I am not part of camping group any longer, as we degraded to chalets and other types of overnights!!!!!, but as I know Willem is not directly involved here, and I was printing the Rally tokens for him, I want to suggest that whoever is going to be responsible for the rally, should contact me ASAP in connection with the tokens, as I am going to be absent for some time due to a "forced/unwilling" visit to the children in Swakopmund mid May to early June, and hence will have to produce the tokens in due time. Quantities not important right now, but the venue and the date for now, artwork to be completed, last date for posting it off would be by the 10th of May, so the numbers can be finalised not later than the 6th of May, unless you have sone other supplier in mind, then I retract this posting.

Regards.

Frans

Hi Christa,

Bloekompoort is 16km from Three Rivers on the Vereeniging Villiers road ... tarred all the way,barring entrance of about 150 metres .. see the photo "Beware caravans turning right" inserted on the other thread, marks the spot.

Willie, I would love to join and would like to add a day or two ... But would need more definite info here, behore taking leave.

I think members should react, firstly by finalising a date and secondly by advising intent. I am sure there will sufficient stands/ablutions/halls for us, even if other groups are also there. The park layout lends itself favourably to accomodate probably four groups.

We still need to determine viability .. Guys/gals please respond soon to assist Willie..

I don't suggest military style, but members should possibly also suggest activities to be considered.I would like to see a comunal braai on Saturday evening and the breakfast/brunch on Sunday. p

Hi Siegfried - dit is beslis fietsry vriendelik - dit is 'n grrot park en redelik gelyk.

Lang naweek sal pas - al moet die vrou die Saterdag werk - kan maar in ry vir die oggend.

Hi Rachel and Johnny,

What are the tarriffs like there? - not many have committed at Bloekompoort and I wonder if it will be worth it for Willie to come all this way for us (unless we get more commitment)

Hi all,
I would have loved to camp with U people at Bloekompoort, but, have already committed to go with family to Mabalingwe.
I have had a lot of changes taking place in my life over the past 3 years and another big one at the moment..... but hopefully will be able to meet up with you all somewhere along the line.
Camping with Willie and Dot goes back many many yrs and I have not seen them for so long either...but...I am working at sorting things out. Ya all go well...but I am still on the forum daily even though I dont say much.....

Willie what is the outcome of this Winter camp?

Dit is baie ver vir Willie en Dot om net te kom vir 5 karavane alhoewel dit sal lekker wees om hulle weer te sien. Het lekker gekuier saam met hulle op Atlanta.

Kan nie glo dat daar so min mense op hierdie forum wat wil gaan saam kamp nie.Dit is mos lekker om die ander forumiete te ontmoet en saam te kuier. Vra vir Nico en Hennie.

Indien die naweek nie deur Caravanparks meer gaan plaasvind nie gaan ek en Elize in elk geval die naweek kamp by Bloekompoort. Die wat dan nog wil saamgaan is welkom.

Yes GUYS/GALS,

Let's have your names - If this is not going to happen, some of us need to make other arrangements - that is a long week end, wife and I have both taken leave to attend. Must make alternative arrangements this week or we may miss out and would hate to sit at home, due to lack of interest.

It is just about impossibe to travel from Pretoria to the area on a Friday afternoon. The last time I tried that, we went to a saamtrek at Koppisol. We left Pretoria at 14:00 and arrived there only at 17:00. 3 hours to travel 100 km! Sorry, maybe next time.

Hey Adri - three hours is not a long way!

Can you guys help me here.

Do I justify towing 480km (this will take me about 7 hours) from Pietermaritzburg to Vereeniging for a weekend with four other campers?

I look forward to these CaravanParks.com Rallies, but unless we get a few more responses, I do not think I justify the distance for a weekend.

I'm placing a deadline of Friday 10th.

Lets have more members commitments.

Willie kom ons hoop dat daar nog 'n paar is wat wil saam gaan. Dit sal jammer wees as ons julle nie gaan sien nie want die vorige een op Atlanta saam was baie lekker.

Dr Drake dan moet ons maar kyk dat die wat hulle name op het nie maar wil gaan kamp by Bloekompoort nie. Die oord is netjies en elke staanplek het sy eie TV skottel al wat jy moet bring is jou eie TV en dekoreerder.

Adri jy moet vir Manie Coetzer vra hoe het hy altyd gery na Koppisol. Volgens hom was die pad nie te sleg nie.

Hessie, ek ken Bloekompoort - was al twee keer daar en kan beslis aanbeveel.

Adri, as Vrydag verkeer te erg is, kan ons dan nie net julle arms draai om Saterdag oggend deur te kom nie?

Dis darem lang naweek en dan spaar (al is dit min, in verhouding met ander plekke) julle een aand se staangeld.

Hi All

This sounds great, Dr Drake has asked me to have a look at this rally.

I am interested and will talk to my wife this evening. If it is a go then it will be 2 adults and my 8 year old son.

I have just received news that my caravan is ready so I will be collecting it tomorrow.

This rally will be perfect to christen the van.

Will let you know by Thursday 9 May the latest.

Go Well!
Michael

Hi All

Good news, we are in for the winter rally at Bloekompoort.

I have managed to rope my father in-law to come with us so there will be 3 adults and 1 child.

Please let me have more info regarding this weekend.

Hi Willie,

I think you should summarise - it seems we are six "groups".

Firstly, is it worth your while coming up?

Secondly, if so how many people can we expect? If this is worth it, I have no objection in contacting Hennie for proces and see what arrangements he is prepared to accomodate rgarding a breakfast.

Hi David.

Yes, Dot & I will be there.

It looks as if we have six groups to date. I would like to see more respond, but I am planning a bit of a road trip, so we will make it.

If you would like to do the honours, please contact the park to get confirmed prices, do the necessary bookings etc.

You guys who have your names down, please confirm your arrival and departure dates.

Monday 17th is a public holiday.

Dates as follows. Friday 14th - Monday 17th. That is 3 (three) nights.

Dot & I will arrive Thursday 13th and depart Tuesday 18th. Five nights.

I owe you a lager David!

Thanks Willie,

I tried to get hold of Hennie for more info and spoke to Vallerie who advised they have the CCSA South Rand region there the same week end. She said it should not be a problem - the park is really large (well grassed all over) and they should be able to cater for us. I don't think we shoulkd let this put us off in any way. The park layout is of such that various groups can be accomodated without infringing on others.

As far as the breakfast is concerned, she says if they are already catering, then we don't have to have a minimum nuber of people.

On her advice, I have dropped Hennie an e-mail and will keep you informed.

I enclose particulars received from Hennie over the week end.

The process now, as I have learned on the forum get togethers, is that:

1) each book his own site directly with the resort.

2) when booking notify them that you are from this forum, in order that they can group us together.

3) confirm your booking on this thread advising the number of stands and people.

4) then we go out and enjoy ourselves.

5) I think we should please add how many would like to have the breakfast.
