Laager 9 Gommittee

Scribe Ocean view resort

Braaimasters-The Nell's

The laager weekend started off early on Thursday evening for luclcy
Nell's who spent a beautiful evening alone alongside a flaming hot
fire and some pretty bright 'STARS'.

Friday came and the rest of the laager family gathered around the
fire for Dop & chop. Little did we know that we had a fire
Marshall(Charl) amongst us who later that eve extinguished our
kuier vuurtjie. DJ Kevin arrived with some music and the evening
became festive with singing and lots of red red wine.

Saturday morning was such a treat with an awesome breakfast
prepared by some of the members who had commemoratives,
thanks to all was great. The rest of the day was filled with, kids
swimming, some cycling and some of us just chilling. We gathered
around the fire for a wet braai that evening, standing strong in the
rain the true campers we are, determined to get our meat cooked.

Sunday came as usual Shanana and then lunch braai for some.

A small outing but a great one.

See you all soon.

Club | News
Chapman's Peak Caravan Park 28th May 2021 (AGM)Friday was a pleasant day although rain had been predicted, I was pleased to find Dawn andBrian were set up on the right hand side, as Rhia had warned me at reception, that a crowd wasexpected on the Left. Poor Leslie and Marieta had set up without chatting to Rhia and they wereon the left and had to move. Not that easy once everything is unpacked and settled.

Friday dawned with the threat of rain, but once again we were blessed with wonderful weather for our AGM weekend. During the course of the day the families trickled in and by Friday evening the campfires were lit, and everyone gathered around and chatted into the early hours. On Saturday morning, some members opted for breakfast in the town, while Gen and her merry band of helpers started to prep for the evening meal.

L15 - Inaugural Newsletter May 2021

Club | News
After much preparation and deliberation, the Inaugural outspan of Laager 15 finally made it to the realization of many outspans that will be held in the future. As mentioned previously, this was a vision come true and well supported by all who attended. Our very first outspan was notably held at De Hollandsche Molen, one of our most favorite parks in the Western Cape and highly recommended.

L21 - KAMBATI CAMP 19th – 21st Mar 2021

Club | News
Some of the Laager members decided to have an extra long weekend and arrived at Kambati on Thursday. Friday morning saw the rest of the members arriving and by the evening everyone had arrived to enjoy a lekka gesels around the fire with much laughter. Saturday morning found everyone trying to guess the mystery activity we had planned. At 2pm everyone gathered and was told they would be making a kite. Everyone became excited, like kids again, as no one had built a kite since childhood. Everybody had lots of fun making the kites and especially trying to fly them. Poor Lesley was made to run up and down by Leighton to try and get the kite to fly. Unfortunately, as per the Premier Log, John’s Liverpool kite did not feature at all and Robbie’s Manchester United kite took flight and stayed ahead. Sunday evening being an extra night, we had snacks which everyone enjoyed and a wonderful time around the fire again

It has been almost eight months since our last outspan at Bergriver, the pandemic has resulted in unprecedented times in the world and it is still not over. It has been a tough time for all of us with a few families actually contracting the virus but we are blessed that they all recovered. So with this new normal, 9 families braved the weather and the virus, and decided to camp this weekend, whilst observing the health protocols as best they can.
