Wild Dog North bash - 21/22/23 Oct 2016 - NEWLY UPDATED
« on: August 23, 2016, 04:50:01 pm »
We had a proposed venue in mind in Thabazimbi which would have provided good access to the Waterberg routes.
How-ever - It is very dry there and the Lodge wanted us to book out the entire venue.
It would have worked out too expensive and we abandoned the idea.

After serious deliberation we decided to rather investigate Ruby River Resort at Loskopdam in Limpopo.
It is 50 kilometres from Middelburg in Mpumalanga and within 200 k's or so from either Jhb or Pretoria and a proper halfway brunch stop for us when we ride to Loskopdam and surrounds. Good striking distance for most so that you don't need to take leave for the Friday.
As a matter of fact if you leave work after 4 you can still reach the venue before 6.
It is easily accessible for Gautengers, Limpopians and Mpumalangans :thumleft: :biggrin:

The resort is accessible by tar via the N4 Middelburg or via well maintained dirt routes through Bronkhortspruit and the Wilge river which are pillion friendly and have been tested extensively on previous trips. Note that the N11 between Middelburg and Groblersdal before the dam is currently under construction and there are various stop and go's which may be a pain in the ass.
The resort is situated on the Olifantsriver flowing from the Loskopdam. It is green and scenic.
The resort has plenty of accommodation of various grades and also offers a well maintained campsite with clean ablutions.
Hondsekierie and myself went through to arrange with management.

The weekend of 21/22/23 October has been reserved for the very first Wilddog North Bash at Ruby River Resort Loskopdam. :3some:

FOOD AND DRINKS ARRANGEMENT
We have secured the Lapa and pool at the campsite for exclusive use by the Wilddogs and there will be a barman and cashbar available. You may of course bring your own to drink as well but we feel it only fair to support the Resort bar which will be available the Friday and Saturday evenings at the Lapa arranged specially for us

The resort has a full barmenu available on the deck at the bar and you can have breakfast there as well.

BRAAIPACKS: Decent Chicken (R65) and meat (R80) braaipacks will be available on order only
You have to indicate your option(s) here and pay cash at the venue.

We will have a bonfire at the Lapa/Pool on Friday and Saturday nights

OUTRIDES:
There are plenty of options for outrides to go and investigate the surrounds.
Dulstroom is only a 100k's or so away and accessible via dirt or tar.
 Maps and routes are posted on Page 7 Reply #136


Come and join us for a WILDDOG 2016 year-end send off to be remembered :thumleft:

Good idea Swifty. Since the last NW bash in Groot Marico and the FS bash in Fouriesberg, a good 2 years (or more) ago, there's been a bit of a drought of bashes in the Gauteng and surround areas.

I would definitely support a bash in the bushveld area around the Waterberg.

Question - why wait for 2017? There's the national bash in Sept but after that not much happening this end of the woods

Yes! Sign me up. I've wanted to attend a bash for years but, as you say, 1000km each way and taking a Friday AND Monday off work was all just too much.

Soos gesę,die bashes sal mekaar waarskynlik nie beinvloed nie oor die afstande, maar hou in gedagte the WC bash is in Maart en die EC bash in Mei.
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !

The problem with owning a Syncro is that, when you get to a place where you get stuck, no-one else can get there to pull you out.
