JULY 2023 RALLY: An Adventurous Caravan Club Get-Together at Ou Skip, Melkbosstrand


Ever wondered wat it would be like to belong to a Caravan Club? This is what it is all about!

The much-anticipated July 2023 Rally and Annual General Meeting at Ou Skip in Melkbosstrand arrived with a severe weather warning! This did not deter the seasoned winter campers who set off, some arriving on Thursday while the balance followed and parked their caravans on Friday. 12 caravans in total including Danie and Malinda with their new “home away from home”

The planned Build a Burger for dinner on Friday night saw Hamburger Patties being air and pan fried after the heavens opened at 17h00 and rain came down unabated all night which meant that no fires could be lit.

A well-attended Annual General Meeting with members who did not camp for the weekend attending the meeting with their “High Tea” Lunch refreshments in hand.

The Committee awarded Natalie Winterbach-Pridgeon, CCSA Boland Region Camper of the Year Award with Sue Townsend, the Runner Up and thanked them for their hard work and dedication over the past year. The Dick Soine – the Grape Vine (The Hammer of the Year) was awarded to Gavin Pridgeon for his antics at rallies.

A special thanks went to Sue Townsend for her contribution to the Region as Secretary, a position which she was stepping down from after many years.

The CCSA Boland Regions new Committee and Assistants were announced as follows:-
Chairman – Andrew Potgieter
Vice Chairman and Smous – Gavin Pridgeon
Rally Convener – Natalie Winterbach-Pridgeon
Secretary – Enid Swart
Assistants – Danie Theron & Antoinette Slater

Saturday afternoon was at leisure with fully tummies from the lovely eats that were supplied by the members and then everyone was ready for action. The Springboks didn’t disappoint while everyone donned their warm jackets and beanies to show their support for the Boks. Fires were lit and food was once again enjoyed by all.
CCSA Boland Region are off on another tour in August 2023 up the West Coast to view the flowers which, after all the rain that has fallen, promises to be a showy affair!
Watch the space and travel along with us for 10 days up the West Coast of Cape Town, it promises to be fun!
