Dear Member, (this is a resend of yesterday's newsletter, with dates corrected: voting for the new committee opens on 31st March, not 31 April) What a weekend…..it was very enjoyable seeing so many new and old faces together, to those of you that missed Nelsons Creek I am sure I can say that you missed a heck of a weekend! The planning for next year’s event is already starting, so you can look forward to even more next year…..a lot of thoughts and positive suggestions are being received for next year, even talks about making it over 3 days, at another venue, a different date, more outrides etc. the list goes on and on….

NC Detour

The Wellington N1 off-ramp (R44 Klapmuts/Wellington) is closed due to the ‘re-laying’ of the tar. Should you be coming down the N1 from Cape Town your best bet would be to take the R304 Klipheuwel off-ramp (Tygerberg Zoo), turn towards Stellenbosch (right) and then turn down the Old Paarl Road (first road on your left) this will take you to the Klapmuts 4-way stop, where you will turn left and you then go under the N1 and you are on your way to NC. If you want some dirt, turn left at the Klipheuwel turn-off as per the map below. Suggested DetoursSuggested Detours

Shirts

Shirts available at NC09 for R150 per shirt. There is limited stock, once sold out we will take orders for shirts which will be ready within 1 month from NC09. No shirts will be "put on hold". It is 1st paid, 1st served. Only cash payments will be accepted. The shirts are the dark navy ones in the picture. Nelson's Creek Committee: In our Nelson's Creek 2009 shirtsNelson's Creek Committee: In our Nelson's Creek 2009 shirts I can report that they are very comfortable for riding in - the fabric is vented and wicks, without making you feel hot the way last year's shirts did. They are also quite smart.

GS Trip: Cederberg 3-5 April

Greetings all, I have had many requests in the past to arrange a Club Off Road trip to a destination that the wife's/girlfriends/partners that do not enjoy pillioning can come along with by car/4x4/etc. Now this is not necessarily an easy task. However I think that I have found the compromise plan and it is as follows. The rustic Cederberg Oasis offers visitors the chance to stay in varying types of accommodation as well as the opportunity to camp. See : http://www.cederbergoasis.co.za I have provisionally booked the entire Oasis over the weekend 3rd to 5th April. The idea is to leave Cape Town at 15h00 on Friday afternoon 3rd April arriving at the Oasis around 19h00. The "partners" would follow us up by car/bakkie etc.
