Outing - 24 September 2015 - Fondly known as the "Chicken Run" Outing

In the month of September, Heritage Day, the Chicken Run outing was hosted by Kowie and Carol at the Farm Valley View.

 This outing has become very popular and was well supported with no less than 17 members and their partners.

Members met at the clubhouse on a beautiful sunny day and departed at 11h00 in convoy with Classic and Vintage cars.   Shortly out of  town we were stopped at a SA Police roadblock.   Great interest was expressed around the cars and drivers licenses were asked for.   

After a short delay the group proceeded to the farm Valley View.   There we were met by our hosts Kowie and Carol where after snacks and refreshments were made available.

Later during the day we all visited Kowie's workshop to see his latest restoration, a 1947 Jaguar, which I believe is a great restoration project and a great asset to Kowie's Classic and Vintage car collection.

The chicken braai was started and once again Kowie and Carol did us proud with an open home, a most enjoyable braai, salads and of course desert.   What a wonderful day, good weather and great cameraderie.   I believe it was another well shared day and successfull "Chicken Run"   Our thanks to Colin for taking the photos and to Trevor and his Braai team.   Well done, Kowie and Carol!
