Chairman's Rally Report


Van Zyl's Rus 15 & 16 October 2005 National Rally

From the Chair:

This rally was most enjoyable with 4 visitors attending.  Just a pity the Disa members did not join our kuier vuurtjies (they don't know what they missing).  Saturday evening was a bit quiet because of a wedding at the lapa.  They made enough noise for everyone.

I must apologize for last months award insert, it should have read 25 nationals not 50 for Hardie & Johanna.

We have rounded the fees for Olive farm to make it easier for the marshals.  This will be compensated for.  Be at the bek-rek to find out.

As you would have noticed we had a first rallier.  Ron & Betty Smith who were duly fined because they took so long to attend their first rally.  A very big welcome to you both and we hope to see much more of you in the future.

A big thank you to all that gave donations, not forgetting our marshals for all their hard work and giving freely of "lekker koek ens."   Baie dankie Bokkie & Sylvia.

Kind Regards

Charles Staats

Next Rally:      05th & 06th November 2005 (National Rally)

Venue:             Eild Olive Farm

Rate:                R60.00 per person per night (Special Price)


Van Zyl's Rus 17 & 18 September 2005 National Rally

From the Chair:

This rally was well attended by members that did not want to go to Snoektown at Bergriver.

We celebrated with Hardie & Johanna on their 50th National rally. This was achieved without missing a single rally.  Congratulations!  Soon it will be your regional awards and we can look forward to some more lekker goed.

It appears that we have to fit the reflector tape to our vans. The tape can be bought from Kassie Karsten at R25.00 per meter.  This is a bargain as most other places charge R30.00 to R60.00 per meter.  The tape must be fitted a minimum of 80% of the length of the van.  Minimum height is 250mm from the road.  The maximum is 1.5 meters above the road.  Width of tape must be 50mm (SABS specification 3M C, E1 104 R 00821).  Kassie also can get you a galvanized strip for the rear of your van.  If you want to order let him know how many meters you require.  Remember January 2006 is the deadline.

Hope to see as many members as possible at the next rally.  Please keep well.

Kind Regards

Charles Staats

Ou Skip 13 & 14 Augustus 2005 Regional Rally

From the Chair:

AGM has passed and your Committee remains the same.  I would like to thank all those that helped in keeping the region going.  It has not been too easy to keep up with all the costs etc. incurred during this year.  We have unfortunately lost 5 of our members.  Some due to the fact that the cost of fuel has now become prohibitive for towing.  Looks like this trend is going to continue.

I am looking forward to rallying this year.  Please support our next rally at Van Zyl's Rus.  This is Hardie & Johanna's 25 National.  They have not missed a single rally since joining.  Also please remember to notify us of any celebration or milestone achieved. The onus is on you. I do keep a record of those that attend rallies.  Dirk & Ettie have just had their 50th Regional without them knowing it.  Come to the next rally for your 50th disc.  Our traffic department says that we do not need the yellow tape on our caravans? I will still need to see the legislation myself before committing to decorating our vans.

Kind Regards

Charles Staats

Next Rally:      17th & 18th September 2005

Venue:             Van Zyl's Rus

Rate:                R60.00 per night


Yzerfontein 23 & 24 July 2005 Regional Rally

From the Chair:

Well there is only a few weeks to AGM. and we have received no nominations.  As you are aware the Chairman has to stand down after a year. I am doing so, but at the request of the Committee and some of the members I will stand again if there is no nomination from the floor. This will be my 10th  year on the Committee and I believe that someone else should give something back to the club.

This past rally at Yzerfontein was a most enjoyable one with only 5 vans attending and Joyce who came around to enjoy our company for the weekend. A big thank you to the Marshals Willie & Cecile for all their hard work and donations. It is always appreciated. The Charity contribution for 2004/5 is R1537.00 This is very good considering that we have had approx. 30% attendance at rallies.

I am considering changing our Regional dates to cut costs of traveling to rallies as we all know that the price of fuel has started to bite into our members funds.  We are mostly pensioners and live very far apart with long traveling distances to attend rallies. A change has to come about.  I do hope that all those that aren't too well will get better soon.

Please try and attend your AGM which will be held in the small hall at Ou Skip on Saturday 13th August 2005 at 1100 a.m.

Kind Regards

Charles Staats
