          17    Wednesday   (PLEASE NOTE 3rd WEDNESDAY—GENERAL MEETING


         25     Thursday    Veterans—Bring and Braai—it is customary to start the year off with a Bring and Braai
                            preferably in the garden of a member’s home. A second option, but less popular, is to
                            gather at the clubhouse. All we need from a volunteer is the venue. This always turns out
                            to be a very happy occasion as everybody tries to come up to date with the latest after the
                            “long time no see”. I hope somebody will come forward to help us. Please bring to this
                            meeting new ideas for outings for 2007. Contact person Jo Hitchcok 021 939 3803 or

you two!!
TRIBUTE TO Theo Shepstone (Kwazulu Natal Member) passed away on the 12 june. His pride and joy
was a 1951 black MG TD which he bought in the early 70s. This TD is still in immaculate condition today
and is probably the best in SA and arguably in the world (see for Sale ad on page 11) Our thoughts go out
to Norma and family.

                          LAKE BRENTON “LAST FLING” 5TH TO 8TH OCTOBER

                                                                                                    By Robin Rich

This year we had an out of phase Cape Centres gathering. This was done to afford us the chance to enjoy
 Lake Brenton Holiday Resort before the developers take over. We have had numerous Cape Centre’s at
Lake Brenton, 1987 being the first one. The last one 19 years later was exceptionally enjoyable. This was
probably because fewer numbers were conducive to socialising and of course the very relaxed programme.
  To illustrate this, Saturday lunch time saw the ten Oever’s, Reck’s Champion’s, Greeenwood’s and the
   Rich’s having their lunch outside around a communal table. The memories were given free reign and
          amongst others Stan Purcocks was remembered with “Cheers, Stan, wherever you are”.
Getting to Lake Brenton was by one’s own arrangement. Some left Cape Town Wednesday morning to
sleep over at Calitzdorp. Ourselves, Philip and Jo Hitchcock and Tony and Liz Greenwood were to meet
at the N1 Winelands One Stop at 9:30. We were on our way when Jo phoned and told us their
“catastrophic” story. Their cat had some infection and had to be taken to the vet. This left us and Tony /
Liz to proceed. This we did at a leisurely pace. At Ashton we stopped for some refreshment and to allow
Philip and Jo to catch up. Lunch was at Barrydale at the Country Pumpkin. The rest of the Calitzdorp con-
tingent awaited us i.e. the ten Oever’s, Lock’s and later the Lewis’s.
About half way between Barrydale and Ladismith Chris Champion’s black Twin Cam appeared in my rear
view mirror. We were promptly (± 130 kmp) overtaken as was the rest of the convoy. The Wednesday
evening we all dined at Die Dorpshuis and enjoyed the lamb shank washed down by whatever wine was
bought locally.
Thursday morning we had an early breakfast and were on the road by 07:30. The reason for this was to
rather leisurely waste 2/3 hours in Knysna than waiting at Kaaimans Pass. In retrospect this was a good
decision. We were very lucky and apart from slower traffic drove through without having to wait.
George Davey was not so lucky. He and Margie had to wait 3 hours. At least he could clean and virtually
service the A while waiting. As usual members from Johannesburg, Norman and Pat Ewing, Alan Uzzell
and Denise Harvey could not miss the “Last Fling”. Thursday evening was an informal braai with ample
time to make new friends or acquaint old ones.
Friday morning was free with the down hill race only starting at 12:00. This was suppose to happen at the
tennis courts but was actually held in the Recreational Hall. Some believed it was held in the hall because
of the shade and comfort of the hall but let me put another angle to that.
Let me introduce you to another excellent idea Ross Lawson had. Since Thursday evening there were two
kegs of Michell's Draught (Bitter and Original) operated by “The Honest Barman”. This meant you helped
yourself and put the money in the jar provided. Worked very well!
The Downhill Race was won by Bill ten Oever with Derek Graham 2nd. Terry Estment won 1st prize for the
most authentic model with Derek Graham 2nd.
Friday evening saw us on the Paddle Steamer cruise for sundowners and supper. What a lovely experi-
ence. The supper can only be described as a 5-star buffet.
Saturday we had plenty of free time to do whatever we fancied. A lot of the members went to Sedgefield to
attend their Saturday morning market. Most enjoyable!
Saturday evening was prize giving and dance with the theme “Something spotted”. Dieter Reck was sport-
ing some conspicuous swastikas, Tony and Liz were in spotted T-Shirts hand crafted by Tony but had no
chance when George and Margie walked in. It was a concluded fact that they had to win. The end result
was George and Margie 1st prize and Tony and Liz 2nd prize in their matching spotted T-shirts.. Those who
remember Fred van der Linde and how he stole the show every year, remarked that he was giving the oth-
ers a chance.
Sunday morning saw some members hitting the road at sparrow’s fart.
Thank you again to Ross and Antoinette Lawson and their team for a MaGic event.


A young couple left the church and arrived at the hotel where they where spending the first night of their honeymoon.
They opened that champagne and began undressing
When the bridegroom removed his socks, his new wife asked, “What’s wrong with your feet? Your toes look all
mangled and wird. “I had tolio as a child,” he answered. “You mean polio?” she asked. “No, tolio. The disease only
affected my toes.”
When the groom took off his pants, his bride once again “What’s wrong with your knees? They’re all lumpy and de-
formed”. “As a child, I also had kneasles. “You mean measles?” She asked. “No Kneasles. It was a strange illness
that only affected my knees.”
The new bride had to be satisfied with this answer. As the undressing continued, her husband at last romed his under-
wear. “Don’t tell me,” she said. “let me guess….Smallcox.”
                                                                                                               Page 7

                ROARING FORTIES
                By Douline Markus

It was a perfect sunny day when about 16 MGs as-
sembled at Sunrise Beach, Muizenberg on Thursday
28th September.
It was well attended and all enjoyed tea and biscuits
and the interesting chats, before departing an hour
later for Simons town through Fish Hoek and Glen
Cairne.
We were pleasantly surprised by the décor at the
Cable Restorer from where we could see South Af-
rica’s Navy New Frigates and submarines moored
nearby—an excellent lunch was served just being a
choice of fish or chicken.
A pleasant day and well organized by John Lock
