Mountain Breeze Resort 6 th – 8 th November 2020

It has been almost eight months since our last outspan at Bergriver, the pandemic has resulted in
unprecedented times in the world and it is still not over. It has been a tough time for all of us with a few
families actually contracting the virus but we are blessed that they all recovered. So with this new normal, 9
families braved the weather and the virus, and decided to camp this weekend, whilst observing the health
protocols as best they can.

The weather gods were not on our side, and the families that arrived early on Friday caught the brunt of the
rain and some were soaked by the time they had set up. As the day progressed the weather cleared up and
by Friday evening everyone had set up, fires were lit and the evening was spent at the braai and catching
up.

On Saturday morning, some ventured away from camp for breakfast whilst most of the families remained
and enjoyed breakfast at camp. The rest of the day was spent relaxing and checking the clouds for rain.
Mercifully, the rain held off, the geselsvuur was lit and the evening was spent braaing and chatting around
the communal fire.

The weather continued to influence the weekend and on Sunday morning, we awoke to the sound of the rain
and at Indaba time, it continued to rain but as always we managed to improvise and we all gathered in the
laundry room for the Indaba. Later some members aiming to get the most of the weekend braaied for
Sunday lunch whilst others packed up under clear skies and headed for home.

Thanks to everyone for a lovely weekend and please stay safe….

L21 - KAMBATI CAMP 19th – 21st Mar 2021

Club | News
Some of the Laager members decided to have an extra long weekend and arrived at Kambati on Thursday. Friday morning saw the rest of the members arriving and by the evening everyone had arrived to enjoy a lekka gesels around the fire with much laughter. Saturday morning found everyone trying to guess the mystery activity we had planned. At 2pm everyone gathered and was told they would be making a kite. Everyone became excited, like kids again, as no one had built a kite since childhood. Everybody had lots of fun making the kites and especially trying to fly them. Poor Lesley was made to run up and down by Leighton to try and get the kite to fly. Unfortunately, as per the Premier Log, John’s Liverpool kite did not feature at all and Robbie’s Manchester United kite took flight and stayed ahead. Sunday evening being an extra night, we had snacks which everyone enjoyed and a wonderful time around the fire again

Honey Badger Tong

Product | TheQuarterMaster
R521.93 Honey Badger Tong (various colours and sizes) The Tong blade is a modified version of a traditional South African biltong knife and a warncliff/sheeps foot blade. The straight edge finds the balance between a clip point and a forward sweeping blade making it useful in everyday utility and a defensive tool. The fully straight cutting edge makes it the easiest blade shape to resharpen and maintain well for everyday use. As with all Honey Badger knives, they are designed to be tough, hard-wearing and reliable while remaining practical & comfortable for Every Day Carry. The blade is a full flat grind with a razor sharp micro bevel out of box. The full flat grind both saves weight and adds to the Honey Badgers slicing ability. Ball bearings in the pivots give the knives a smooth, almost friction-less surface. Made of 8CR13MOV stainless steel which is easily sharpened and holds an edge.
