Ride Together for Alexander Nel

We have planned a Ride - Fly- Drive Together for Alexander for Sunday 3rd December 2017 to celebrate his Life.
Meeting at KTM Paarden Eiland 10:00 to depart 11:00 - Ashley has offered to open shop for coffee for those who comes early.

Vehicles and road bikes will Drive down R27 to Melkbos and back down the N7 past the Morning star airfield and end at Mountain View Farm, The Barrel Pub.

Bikes  (those who want to) will Ride down R27 and John Lanham will take you on a small offroad detour behind Tableview ending up at Mountain View Farm, The Barrel Pub.

From Morning star Airfield some Gyro-copters will join us at 11:00 at KTM and  Fly in formation above following a route they have planned out for us to see. This is weather permitting.

Please if anyone wants to add something chat to me so we can include.

I want to get this all documented so we can put something together for his Legacy.

Any photographers, reporters that can write something or someone want to contribute to this idea please contact me.

Thanks!!

Sean Kriel

Thanks to everyone for including me in all the whatsapp groups.
Unfortunately I too will not be able to attend as I will be away, although I would have very much liked to be there.

Alexanders birthday today. Came up on Skype, felt like he was around and it was time to give him a ring and see how he is doing.

We are thinking of you Alex.

I heard from a colleague of mine that his dad recently passed away from cancer. They lived in the same complex.
