In this week's news we cover the story of the Avro Shackleton that crashed near the Stettynskloof Dam - a mystery unsolved. We also head off into the kalahari to drive the oddly named Charles' Pass. If you plan on riding it, beware the sand monster lurks there.

It was a great pleasure addressing members last week as the guest speaker. Thank you for the invite!
