Can we please have some suggestions on when and especialy the area where members would like to have their next rally?

In this case, I am keen to hear especially from those who are NOT attending the Bloekompoort (near Vereeniging) rally in June 2014 - your suggestions can be discussed at Bloekompoort. (Further, if you have NO intention of attending, please also refrain from answering, afterall there is no purpose in suggesting something in which you have no interest and can sway a decision towards a dissappointing turn up for others).

The reason I ask, is that I have seen a ceratin amount of resistance to winter camping, especially in colder areas.

By looking at a different area and season, we may be able to attract more members. This can also be considered in "addition" to an annual Bloekompoort rally, which has also been suggested!

Please note that I am in no way dissappointed in last year's turn up (being a first for me) and am very satisfied with this year's interest, which is already more than double last year's  attendance and also exceeds a number of other smaller succesful rallies I have attended.

This is about the members and would be great if we could get even more there!

Hi DR Drake Gp
Can you give me exact date for rally please. I know you did invite me but I can not remember where it was posted.
I am a shift worker with only one weekend every 6 weeks of and want to look if I might be lucky this time. I am of the weekend of the 20st June

Hi Frans - 13 to 16 June 2014.

Please do a search under tiltle on the left just below the registration area - Bloekompoort is sufficient to bring up other threads where you can get more information on the rally as well as some photo's of last year's.

If you are unsure, it is not necessary to commit NOW! Even Hennie, the owner, does not bother with bookings due to more than 200 sites. If things only fall into place at the last minute, you are welcome to join us there.

The only negative is that we may not have a disk or handouts, if applicable. At present, we are looking at 30 disks with 22 confirmed and we should have enough (To be honest, I hope not - would like more than 30 to arrive). If we don't have enough, we will still see what we can do to rectify.

Sorry - I actually forgot - you will also find the thread under "Cool Topics" directly above this thread.

I can't believe this - NO SUGGESTIONS?

Most of us do camp - so why not try to meet other forum members while we are doing just that??????? 

This topic will most probably come up at Bloekompoort - I think we need to see how we can get more people at our get togethers!

I have heard of members not wanting to camp in winter and south of Johannesburg.

Come on ..... this is an opportunity to make yourself heard - give us some suggestions and we may be able to camp where YOU LIKE it!!!!!!!!

Jy sê dan SpeknekWink, maar dalk nie wat jy wou sê nie.

Miskien moet die wat by Bpoort ook maar hier "bek rek" - die idee is dat ons as 'n groep daar kan ooreenkom en die wat nie daar is nie se voorstelle in gedagte neem om meer mense by die rally te kry. As julle na die lys kyk, sal julle sien byvoorbeeld daar is beslis 'n klomp lede van Bloubul land af wat nie kom nie - hoekom dan nie iets oorweeg wat nader is aan hulle, wat ook vir ons sou aanvaarbaar wees. Al hou ek nie van 'n Bloubul nieFoot in mouth, kan ek nog met hulle ondersteuners kamp Cry  

Aan die anderkant, help dit nie ons probeer akkomodeer waar die voorsteller nie eers belangstel om by te woon nie, dan kom nog minder.

Hi David

How about Magalies Sleepy River.

Stopped there on Tuesday this week and it looks great. Did not check the ablutions though. Next time I go to Rustenburg I will stop and check it out properly.

Pieta, anders moet die manne  "hier bo"maar bietjie "verder" kyk, en afwaarts Gariepdam toe beplan, darem so halfpad tussen Noord en Suid, maar dalk eerder op langtermyn, vir 2015, om almal behoorlike tyd te gee vir beplanning!!!!

David you have a good idea here, about an additional camp to the Bpoort one Janet and I dont belong to any Caravan club, so we dont go out much as it not always lekker on your own. I suggest we have one formal meeting there so we can look at a map and look to see which parks are whithin a radius comfortable for most and start making arrangements.

That is the idea Fred - that is why I have excluded those attending Bpoort - they can raise their voices there - What I am keen  to know is how we can get others to join - eg I have heard complaints from those from "Blue Bull" country that south of LION country (how's that for stirring) is too cold in winter and they are scared Surprised of the traffic on a Friday afternoon. (I think they are actually scared of the LIONS, Cheetahs and maybe a Shark or Stormer they may cross paths with) Undecided

Pieta, julle kan mos ook een reel. Ek het juis Saterdag met Gonnie gepraat en gesê ek will 'n draad begin oor hoe om 'n rally te reel (uit my ondervinding) - dit kan help, al is dit net iets om mee te begin - elke ou het natuurlik sy eie idees.

Good idea about the "how to arrange a rally".

Once we have a venue, we need to get a person closest that venue to run with the arrangements, as you are now doing for Bpoort.

Or we can get one of the amalofers or as they like to be called "full timers" to help with the arrangementsLaughing

Die groot ding is om nie teveel verandwoodelikheid op een persoon te plaas om als te doen nie.

Kry die plek en datum, dan is dit vir elke ou om sy eie bespreeking en reelings te doen en die een persoon hou dan net 'n lys van die name en dalk die staanplek nommers.

Enige een wat ander aktiwiteite wil reel is baie welkom om dit te doen.

Sonder reelings is die norm om een aand saam te braai vir die wat wil.

Ens.

Oppad na die volgende kamp.

I was at Lovers Rock on Saturday and the improvements are fabulous. I spoke to Gonnie at the show and I have loads of pic to show but battling to download them from my phone.

I think we need to support Lovers Rock.

Sorry Christo - ek het nie jou versoek hier gesien nie.

Ek kan net sê daar was menings geuiter op Bloekompoort en ons wag hier op Willie (Boring camper) om te sien waar die volgende rally sal wees - ek wil nie die wind uit sy seile neem nie.

Like to put MALONJENIE forward. Plenty for the money munchers to do, small buck roam freely in the camp, game drives, a huge resort, facilities on par with B/kompoort, and even a off-road track, may even be able to get some 4x4 guys to show how exciting it is do do an obsticle or three

 

Just a thought...

Slightly quicker downhill....
These days a teeny-tiny bit more slightly quicker....

Pieter. Kan jy asb meer inligting gee oor Soinsbergh. Ek wil graag 'n draai daar gaan maak. Kan jy ook asb. sê watter staan plekke is idiaal vir vis vang.

Ek kyk of ek gelukkig gaan wees om Desember daar te gaan kamp en of daar nog plek beskikbaar is

Jou terugvoering sal opreg waardeer word.

Hello Pieter. Ek het gister oggend Santa by Sionsbergh gekontak, want ek het die kontak besonderhede op die web gekry, sederdien het ek nog geen terugvoering van haar af gekry nie. Sodoende sal ek hou by my huidige bespreking by 'n ander oord.

Volgens Pieter hulle wat gaan kyk het na Sionsberg is dit 'n nice oord maar die eienaar soek nie enkel kampers nie. Hy wil net groepe toe laat. Miskien sal hy agter kom daar is ook ander kampers wat wil kamp.

Hi,Brian

According to their gallery on the web, it seems to be a very nice place, but unfortunately it seems to be a bit un-organised when you want to make a reservation, especially when a person ''HM & HA'' when you start asking questions.

I know, we going there occasionally. We were there 2 years ago over the festive season, but unfortunately the entertainment person never arrange something for the kids at that stage, he was just looking into his bottle 24/7.

Another thing of Malonyeni is, that the camping area is quite open and due to that, you always sit with the wind problem, even the trees are standing with bent BACKSLaughing
