Unfortunately due to the lack of numbers at the Nelson’s Creek event this year the BMW Club was not in a position to make a donation to the Nelson’s Creek Children’s Fund. We donated money in 2007 and 2008 which went towards winter clothing for 16 children living on the farm. This year one of the children drowned in the farm dam further adding to the hardship of families. With winter fast approaching we would like to raise a small amount of money from the BMW Club for these children. Please help, any amount will be appreciated. Pay the money directly into the BMW Club account. Bank: First National Bank

By removing the backup vehicle and trailer, we are able to reduce the trip cost per person by R200. This means the cost for the trip is now '''R300 per person''' There are still 5 places available - so book soon.

(Price Reduced): Overnight Off Road ride to Sutherland 23rd - 24th May (Not the annual Tour)

By eliminating the backup vehicle and trailer we have reduced the price to R300! On my recent trip to Douglas in my 4x4 I rode a really nice track that does not appear on Mapsource of T4A on my GPS. I found it when I came upon a locked gate and needed to find a road to Sutherland as it was almost dark. What a great road it turned out to be. Bring your partners to join in the fun with us. The plan is therefore as follows : Meet at the Engen one stop on the N1 Joostenburg Vlaktas at 0730 on Saturday 23rd May and depart at 0800 for the Wimpy in Ceres for breakfast and a refuel. After breakfast we depart for Sutherland following some old and new tracks.
