Over the weekend of 23 to 25 October 2015 we had our 34th National Saamtrek in Gariep at the Gariep Dam. 52 members attended the National Saamtrek and 46 attended the 2015 AGM. We had 40 plus Volvo’s on show of which 22 entered for the judging! Another very successful event, excellently organised with no hitches. Such a pity that the weekend went by so quickly!
After Friday registration we met up at the lapa and had a lekker bring and braai and met up with old friends and made a few new ones. Saturday the photo shoot went off without a hitch with the Gariep Dam and yachts in the background, we did the AGM and then the display and judging. Prize giving dinner great company, great company and great company….and great food. Sunday we had the winner and 2nd place photo shoot.
Thanks again to all the sponsors and contributors – please see our Support page under the sponsors tabs.
