2011 EC Wild Dog Bash - the Report Back
« on: May 15, 2011, 04:18:52 pm »
Ok. just made it back from one of the best bashes ever!  Will give more shortly ... but I am sure someone else can get things started.

We were 65 dawgs in total (or at least that was the number of names entered in to the price giving draw) at the 2011 EC Bash.  A special word of thanks to all those persons and businesses that donated the prices,  Much appreciated!
Would have been a few more, but last minute business commitments prevented a dog or two from exercising his right to pure adventure.  

Then there was also the misfortune of Big Dom that en-route came off very hard - a mere 19 km from the bash site, breaking his right wrist badly and ending up in a PE hospital later that night. I also learned that if a hospital advertise that it has a 24 hour casualty emergency section, do not take it for granted.  We had to transport poor Big Dom with all his troubles 1st from the Kareedouw Hospital to a new suggested one in Humansdorp - why? - sorry the x-rays do not work after hours.  Same story in Humansdorp - doctor available, but no x-ray facilities at that time.  Got Bog Dom eventually sorted out and examined properly in Jeffreys Bay.  He was subsequently transferred from here to the St Georges Hospital in PE for surgery.  Truly trust the healing process is quick and without any problems.

Veilig op Oudtshoorn. Thx Watty, Uncle Al en al die organiseerders vir 'n moerse lekker 2011 EC Bash. Dit was lekker om weer die bekendes te sien  en nuwe dawgs te ontmoet. Thx TR, HorsePower, McSpanner, Dirtcopper en Malan vir die saamry. Het die company geniet. Glad some of the long distance travellerrs already safely home and those still on the road tomorrow, ride safe.
