June 2016 Newsletter

Previous Run: Niel Beer se Run. 15 May 2016.

Trying to predict the weather during the Merry month of May is almost impossible – especially if it is in the latter half of the month - the weekend after Mother’s Day.  Because we are still in the El Niño and not the La Niña weather cycle, I decided to take the chance and organize an outdoor run.

The arrangement was to meet at the Engin Winelands One Stop on the N1, at 10h00.
When I got there at 10h00, I was blown away to see no less than nine beach buggies, all lined up in the parking area!   (It was wonderful to see Dugald amongst the crowd!)  Soon two more bugs arrived and by 10h30, 12 bugs and 2 cars, hit the road towards Paarl
2016juneThe convoy drove through Simondium, Pniel and Helshoogte pass,into Stellenbosch.
We then took a slow drive through the “dorp” to show off the buggies. Victoria, Van Ryneveld, Plein, Church and finally Dorp Street.  I don’t think Stellenbosch has ever seen 12 buggies in convoy – not on a Sunday!
From Stellenbosch we drove out to Audacia market on the R44.

At the market, folks very much did their own thing (explored, ate, drank, talked etc.)
At 15h00 we all congregated at the buggies and held the traditional raffle, after which all went their way.
Thanks to all that helped to make it an enjoyable outing!
