Hi Guys.

I have been watching the string on the KZN Rally in February 2013 to see what KZN response is & from other provinces as well.

I propose the first weekend of Feb: Friday 1st & Sat 2nd.

I propose Drakensville as it is a very nice venue.

Please get your names onto this list ASAP so that I can phone Drakensville & book accordingly.

We will be missing this one as we will be at Hartenbos but in spirit we will be there, hope we and Clive & Joyce can have our own braai in memory.

Just a note I found on their web.

http://www.drakensville.co.za/?page_id=52

Neem asseblief kennis dat die R74 gesluit is by die Sterkfonteindam

Wow Willem thats one long detour for the guys comming from Gauteng 

Normal route 57Km from Harrismith 

Detour route 131Km     Surprised

 

Hopefully by then the route has been repaired. Last time I used it down to Dbn due to an accident just outside Harrismith the R74 was in dreadfull condition

Willie/Willem

 

The road is open at own risk. The stop/go's are unmanned & the road is very narrow at places. Large parts are potholed gravel strips. I agree with the detour as I would not drive there with a car & no-go for a caravan. I will attach a photo soon.

 

Regards

 

Pieter

Sit ook ons name op en soos Obie se ons sal kyk om 'n week langer te bly.Dit is nou Jan en Hester Kruis.

Obie dalk het hulle weer so 'n "Midweek special" aan daardie tyd.

Lekker dag

This is a tricky one. We are booked at Scottburgh from 12 Jan. to 8 Febr., but will not be able to take so many days leave. Which means that we wil either have to leave Scottburgh earlier or go there later. If we leave earlier, we might just be able to attend this rally on our way back. Give us a few days to work this one out and I will post the result! In the mean time: hold thumbs with me!

Willem (Wilsur) - I know you might not be able to join us - off to Hartenbos - but you WILL still be involved. I present you with the honour of setting up the list as always, as well as the Rally Disks! You are such a good organiser of lists and disks, we cannot let you off the hook here!

Hi, We will try our best to attend but will have to let you know at later stage. It depends on Neill's health. He has just had an ECG and a whole lot of tests done yesterday. Next month he is going to have EEG. A couple of years ago, he had a heart attack and then had to have a triple by pass, Now for some reason out of the blue he has had two bad seizures. I am a bit worried to travel to far if his health is not alright, but If all goes well and his health is good and Marshall is fine we are going to try to make this rally (outspan).

Thanks everyone for your kind words and prayers. Neill's last set of blood tests are back to normal. Now he has to go for the EEG next month to see if they can find a reason for the seizure's. He appears to back to normal. All I pray is that he does not have another seizure especially while driving. He is an auto electrician and his job requires him to be on the road.

Hi all,

This one interferes with my cricket season. My wife was retrenched last month but to an extent fortunately is now employed at the same place, but different employer and leave could be a problem. It is a long way for me, so we will have to take leave to make it worthwile.

However, I am watching this thread closely. If I see enough names I have not met yet, I will also make an extra special effort to attend. I also don't want to miss 3 rallies in a row! So, COME ON KZN!

Regards,

DR DRAKE GP that's not a Doctor nor a GP.

Hi There

What is happening with this Rally.  Ek kan julle nie verstaan nie hoekom wil julle nie saam kamp nie ?

Ek sê weer ons is baie jammer want Februarie is ons by Hartenbos en daarom kan ons dit nie maak nie, maar dit gee julle nie 'n verskoning om nie saam te kamp nie.

Hope to see the list growing in Jan. 2013

If there are none from KZN, should we not look somewhere else and attract more?

Three vans! Colin - Jhb. Leon - Pretoria and myself - KZN.

Have you guys already booked? If not, it is not worth a rally for three families, two from Gauteng.

NOT ONE KWAZULU-NATAL!!!! This rally was intended that KZN forums members were to meet Gauteng (Transvaal) Forums Members!

Very disappointing! I need clarity before this week is out please.
