SATURDAY 30 NOVEMBER 2013
- acsis VOB Longer Faster Group Run – Cecilia Forest car park / Contour Path / Dark Gorge (or Newlands Ravine) / Saddle / Middle Contour to Mowbray Ridge / King’s Blockhouse / back to Cecilia via Contour Path or Lower Tracks. For full details see Monday email or http://vobtrail.blogspot.com.
Proviso: Although the run is on, we may need to compromise in some way. I am struggling with a calf injury and there isn’t another leader available. Hopefully, with the assistance of my little green and red friends, I will make it through the run BUT I may need to turn back at some stage (based on last night’s running experience). If that is the case then I will ensure that a suitable, safe compromise is reached. Sorry about that.
- Table Mountain Trailers (Acsis VOB’s Medium Distance Slower Group)
The run is ON, led by Geoff Nell. Peter Rogers is also leading a Recovery Group and Fay Linder will be walking too. Get there early because there is a VWS charity fund-raising event happening there on Saturday morning. But at least you can stay and enjoy it after the run. Starting at 06:30 at the Newlands Fire Station (where the helicopters are), we go up up up to the Blockhouse, then turn right and run as far away and as fast as possible from Mowbray Ridge (for Lorraine), then up up up to the saddle and down Newlands Ravine and back to the cars
This should take about 2 and a half hours to do the 10km
The other groups have a fantastic opportunity to pop in at either Kirstenbosch or Rhodes memorial for tea and scones on the route
Bring a few bucks for the car guard.
Contact Geoff Nell on firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

YEAR END TRAIL BRAAI – SATURDAY 14 DECEMBER 2013
For the past few years a group of us has got together to have a braai over the December long-weekend around the Day of Reconciliation (16th) to celebrate the close of another year of fantastic trail running together. It was never intended to be exclusive but inevitably it looked like it was and noses got out of joint which is the last thing we wanted. So this year we are putting the invitation out to anyone who wants to come along and join us. It is not a braai for acsis VOB members only. We would love to have not only the regulars who have participated in our runs over the year but also anyone who has ever wondered what the group is about and what we are like. All we ask is that you RSVP by 11 December so that we know how much salad etc to provide.
Date: Saturday 14 December 2013 (not Sunday as originally discussed – if you arrive on Sunday I’ll turn the hose on you)
Place: 41 St Joan’s Road, Timour Hall, Plumstead.
Directions: From Constantia Village, take Doordrift Road in the direction of Gabriel Road, Plumstead. Take the first road right after passing Stodels Nursery. This is St Joan’s Road. Cross over one stop street and look out for number 41 on the left about 5 or so house after the stop street. If you are coming from anywhere else, email us for directions.
Bring: You will need to bring your own booze and meat. Bring cozzies and towels – i.e. there is a pool and the Diep River flows through one corner of the property – take your pick. Partners welcome. Children? Tough one because a “strong language” advisory must be issued. In principle, no problem as long as you are aware of what they may hear. J Look, Sandra and the CEO will probably be there and that means swearing – and not just words like “flip” and “darn”. I will do my best to keep the bottles of tequila and grappa away from Flippie because that only exacerbates the problem. We will have the police on standby too.
Don’t Bring: We will provide the fires and salads (I will chat to a few people re bringing a salad), rolls, ice etc.
Format: Totally relaxed and casual. Braai and eat when you want or even just pop in for a drink at any stage. MATES runners: Mike says you must bring your MATES shirts. We can then soak them in a bucket of Protect and we’ll see if we can get the smell out of them. If not, we will have the K-WAY VOB 2014 application forms available and you can get a nice new, attractive design, fresh smelling VOB top.
RSVP: To Tim Bellairs on email@example.com / 0823210299 preferably before 11 December 2013.
Specific instructions which one would normally not deem necessary: David B (Nicky he is your responsibility for the afternoon / evening), Mike O, Douglas, Flippie, Stephen O’G, Rebecca, Sue B and other similar skollies, if Brigette catches you urinating anywhere other than in a designated toilet you are dead. For clarity: the garden beds, pool and river are not toilets. Sandra, do not park across the neighbours’ driveways. They are normally nice, reasonably tolerant people but ……………. J
And finally: There will still be an Acsis VOB Trail Run on the morning of 14 December before the braai.
The MATES CEO’s Annual (Agatha’s Gully) Run will take place the following morning (Sunday 15 December) from Constantia Nek .
Whatever you’re up to, have a great weekend Everyone.
