    Hey Capetonians :yeahdude:

    I will be visiting Cape Town from Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon. Although I will be totally busy with work during the day, I hope to have some time in the evenings to perhaps visit one or two fellow reefers, if there is any interest :whistling:

    Our offices are in the northern "suburbs" between Bellville and Durbanville (I know, not really part of Cape Town...) and I will be staying in the (City) Lodge Bellville. Although I will have a hire car, I would prefer not to drive too far (being from the platteland I'm not used to heavy traffic :razz:), so anyone in the Bellville, Durbanville area who would like to meet please give me a shout :wave2: (PM).

    Thanks,
    Hennie

    WOW! Cool Hennie! Would be AWESOME to meet you..... Hhhmmmm - I am in Table View/Parklands area. Henk too.

    Kanga (not sure if he will be in Cape Town at that time - he might be at his 2nd home - some airplane or another ;-) lives in Melkbosstrand....

    All +-30 minutes drive (maximum) from where you will be....

    There are some reefers out in the Durbanville area..... ie. Brent Normington.... hhhmmmm and some others - but I cannot remember them immediately....

    I'll PM you my cell no - if you want to meet up.

    Cheers.
    Jacques

    Hey, that sounds GREAT :thumbup: Just remember, I'm from the Free State, so no "braaibroodjies", I demand MIELIEPAP with my meat. :biggrin:

    Alternatively, we could perhaps meet at a restaurant somewhere close, if it's inconvenient for Kanga to host a braai...

    Anyway, I will phone Jacques to confirm details - really looking forward to meet you guys.

    It really is an honour to meet Hennie. I had him at IMACSA 2007 over at my place, what a humble gentleman :)
