    Happy New Year everyone!!!

    Thought we could start the year off with a proper Social event.
    All the up-country holiday makers should be heading home, the weather is perfect, so why not have a family outing to Hermanus? The shark research facility (the little one in the old harbour) has indicated that they would open specially for MASA. I think i may know of a good place for us to have lunch as well.
    Any thoughts?

    @FransSny , @Charl_Stanhope - anything else we can do while we there?

    Farm tour would be excellent. I know the one abalone farm used to have tours, not sure if they do it anymore.

    Not sure of dates, prob mid Feb. Depends on who and how many are keen.

    That would be great. The kob are alot more interesting to see than abalone.

    It's not that cold, this time of the year wet suits are a bummer.

    Hi David,

    This sound like a very cool plan. I'll certainly be there and probably bring a plus 1 with. We can also talk about transport as we don't all have to drive there in seperate vehicles.
