Wildekrans wine claims Terroir Award Those of Wildekrans wine estate near Bot River have reason to raise their wine glasses and celebrate, after Wildekrans won a Terroir Award last week. Terroir has been the buzzword among wine lovers for several years now. The basic concept is to discover wines that best reflect the terroir in which they are produced. Wildekrans won the Novare Trophy for SA Terroir Top Wine Estate. The Wildekrans Chenin Blanc barrel selection 2010 was among the five top-scoring wines of all the wines entered in the competition, as well as winner in the Walker Bay district, while another Wildekrans wine received an above-average rating. Seen here (from left) are William Wilkinson (winemaker), Amanda Harlow (owner) and Braam Gericke (viticulturist and farm manager) with their awards.

Diere­eienaars gaan opdok JANINE VAN DER RIET Verskerpte optrede kan verwag word teen honde-eienaars wat nie hul diere onder beheer het wanneer hul op openbare terrein beweeg nie. Die Overstrand Munisipaliteit se Verordening rakende die aanhou van honde en katte het in 2008 in werking getree en plaas die onus op die eienaars van dié diere om toe te sien dat hulle te alle tye onder beheer is. Munisipale wetstoepassers gaan van 1 Augustus streng optree teen honde-eienaars wat nie hul samewerking wil gee nie. Artikel 6(2) van die verordening bepaal dat

A VIEW TO DIE FOR !! A MUST TO SEE

niemand sy of haar hond in ’n openbare gebied mag toelaat sonder dat die dier op ’n leiband en onder die beheer van ’n persoon is nie. Dus, as jy nie die wet gehoorsaam nie, wag groot boetes op jou. Die eerste boete is R500, die tweede boete is R1 000 en as jy ’n derde keer oortree, moet jy in die hof verskyn en jou hond word afgeneem. Om ’n vroulike hond aan te hou, wat ouer is as ses maande en nie gesteriliseer is nie, gaan jou R500 uit die sak jaag. Diere-eienaars wat hou daarvan om hul honde na restaurante te neem, moet ook weer besin. ’n Boete van R300 word gehef indien jy jou hond na ’n plek neem wat kos voorberei

LOTS OF SPACE FOR EVERYBODY!!

en of verkoop. ’n Openbare gebied is volgens die verordening enige strand, pad, straat, deurgang, brug, oorbrug, deurpad, voetpad, sypaadjie, laan, vierkant, oop spasie, tuin, park, paadjie, bus- of taxistaanplek of enige ander gebied wat onder beheer van die munisipaliteit is en waartoe die publiek toegang het. Die Kleinmond Dierebeskermingsvereniging (KAWS) is nie bewus daarvan dat die boetes hoër en die strawwe strenger is nie. Volgens KAWS het die Overstrand-munisipaliteit nie genoeg fasiliteite om diere wat afgeneem word, te huisves nie tensy die munisipaliteit saam met die verskillende dierebeskermingsverenigings werk.

Peter and Merrilee Berrisford are preparing to leave for Oxford tomorrow (Wednesday), where the 73-year-old Peter will compete in the Grand Masters Hockey World Cup. The Berrisfords have been living in Betty’s Bay for the last eight years, in what used to be the family holiday home. Peter, who qualified as a chemical engineer and has been involved in various manufacturing businesses over the years, has been a keen hockey player since his student days. “I used to play rugby,” he says, “but with my slight build I was physically hammered. I decide to switch to hockey, which is not such a harsh sport, and continued to play for more than 50 years.” Peter played club hockey throughout his career, which took him as far a field as Sasolburg, Los Angeles and Cape Town. “I was the oldest player in the Masters’ League in Cape Town, and we hardly ever lost a game,” he says.

Entertaining jamming The Spontaneous Combustion Blues Band concept of “plugged-in” jamming delighted a lively audience of blues fans in the intimate armchair setting of the PeriScope Theatre in Pringle Bay on Saturday night. As with traditional New Orleans street-corner jams, attendees were treated in close quarters to exuberant improvisation knitted into a number of classics by some very accomplished, funloving local bluesmen. The band members do not rehearse ahead of shows – all members have careers in other groups, keeping them occupied – and go on stage with three front men nominating songs to be played, briefly explaining what they have in mind. Getting enough approving nods (not necessarily from all band members), they take off. On Saturday night these exchanges often included short demo riffs of chord progressions that, together with the verbal exchanges, contributed to the entertainment of both blues novices and authorities present.

Spontaneous Combustion in action. Driving proceedings on a crystal-clear, professionally configured rig were bassand rhythm-men Schalk “Thunder Merwe” (Bed on Bricks) and Pieter Heyns (Mercury Blues Sessions), with front men Jurg Human (Die Boer Theatre), Sven Blumer (CCR Tribute Band) and Simon Orange (Blues Broers) calling the shots. Several sub-genres, ranging from urban to country, acoustic to electric and swinging to jazzy, were covered with aplomb, with the Latino-influenced “Texican” Señorita (Los Lonely Boys) getting the crowd off their seats and dancing. Blues–rock was not neglected, and Hendrix’s Little Wing flew listeners off

through the purple haze of the electric ’60s. Material by Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Willie Dixon, Jeff Healy and Big Bill Broonzy was all treated masterfully with the unique quality that comes naturally with “jamming”. Local songs did not take a back seat either, as proven by the atmospheric Mr Fingers by Simon Orange himself. He also nominated the pounding Electric Train by the Blues Broers, infamously inspired by the Cape Town station sign for the Stellenbosch line – “to Bellville and beyond”. The organisers urge everybody to join the next Spontaneous Combustion session for a night of explosive blues jamming.

67 MINUTES OF TLC: The home-based carers of Hawston Health & Welfare decided to celebrate Mandela Day by pampering the teachers of Sonstraaltjies, Busy Bees, Blommeland and Feetjieland crèches. This gave the hard-working teachers the opportunity to put their feet up for 67 minutes and be spoilt with massages, manicures and pedicures.

While the teachers were being pampered, one of the carers, Nazier Sadan, had his hands full in keeping the children occupied.

FISHERHAVEN CLEANUP: Denise Sampson of Fisherhaven rounded up 18 residents, armed with plastic bags (which were donated by Tuffy Brands), to collect 18 bags of rubbish on 18 July. “We came together as a community to honour Nelson Mandela by giving 67 minutes of our time to community service,” said Sampson. They also pulled out alien vegetation and marked a hiking trail with donated poles. “We are proud of our village, and we all had a wonderful time,” Sampson said.

Baboons a complex topic PIA NÄNNY When it comes to baboons, the Overstrand area gives rise to so many scenarios that one could formulate a dissertation question around every corner. This is what two anthropology students from the University of Texas in San Antonio found after they had spent two months in the Overstrand area, trying to decide on which baboon research projects they should embark upon. Nick and Amanda Elwanger were hosted by Whale Coast Conservation (WCC) and spent many days in the field watching the baboons and working out the projects that would most likely get funding. Nick says the local ecosystem is unique, and his aim was to find a group feeding mainly on fynbos. He believes he found such a group at Salmonsdam near Stanford, but it was very difficult to get close to them. Amanda wants to look at the possibility of baboons living and flourishing in proximity to humans; her research is centred in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Both of them must first return to Texas to complete their studies and get funding, and it is unlikely that they will be back before early 2014.

However, at an open meeting at WCC’s office on Thursday, they gave some interesting insights into what they had observed during their two-month stint. They spoke about the number of young ones in a troop and how they often create the impression of a population explosion. However, infant mortality is apparently very high. They also mentioned the clear lack of leadership in the Voëlklip troop. “There is no male to lead, and the group isn’t cohesive at all. The females are very spread out, and this makes it hard for the monitors to be successful,” they said. “Be kind to the adult males. As obnoxious as they might be, they serve an important role.” Amanda also spoke about the way baboons manage to manipulate baboon-proof bins. She told the audience that baboons don’t work together. “You need to design a bin that one human can open, but which would need two baboons to do so.” Nick and Amanda leave on Friday, but they hope to be back eventually. “We can’t cover the whole Overstrand and all the issues – we need to focus. But hopefully our presence places new focus on baboons in the area, and will encourage other people to come and continue their studies here.”

It’s time for tourism to step up in the Overstrand

No leash? Pay up To leash, or not to leash. With the amended bylaws, pet owners will have to think twice about adopting more fourlegged friends in future. Your dog must be registered and spayed, and you are forced to remove their faeces, or else pay R200 for the first offence, and R400 for the second offence. If you let your dogs run wild, your dogs can be impounded. Is this harsh? Or should pet owners be more considerate towards our fellow neighbours? Noise pollution is also a big problem. If your dog barks for hours at a time, you might also be in trouble. Take care of your pets, love them, and stick to the rules so that everyone can live in harmony.

A few years ago I visited Riversdale as part of a press junket. Riversdale had been named as one of the finalists in the Town of the Year competition. It did not win the award, but the significance of the nomination not only enhanced the profile of the town but also instilled a sense of pride in its townspeople. The press through its reportage further elevated the status of the town. The invited press was hosted by the town, with the municipality, tourism sector and private enterprise playing prominent roles. It is time that our tourism bureau instituted a similar initiative. Invite the press, accommodate them at suitable venues, feed them at participating restaurants and take them on a sightseeing tour. We have the penguin colony, Kogelberg hiking trail, Hermanus cliffs, Kleinmond harbour complex, our majestic dunes and the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, to name a few. It would locate us as a must-visit region and put us on the map as a tourist attraction. The big cities have all the music festivals, the theatres, exhibitions and conferences. Bringing events of such magnitude also carries related benefits, such as muchneeded employment and, more importantly, the exposure of locals to an aesthetic appreciation of the arts. We have shown that we are capable of handling huge happenings, such as the annual Big Blues Fes-

tival, Whale Festival and road races. Many artists and musicians I have spoken to have expressed an interest in performing or exhibiting in the Overstrand. A tourism bureau should not only be an information centre or a facility that works on projects irregularly; it should initiate events on a routine basis. Enlarge the tourism arm of the region and source outside talent and business. The community becomes aware of what is out there and does not need to feel so isolated. A downside to the blues festival was that many of the audiences over the two days were of a paler hue. We need to be inclusive by possibly giving out complimentary tickets to the less privileged who show an interest in music, such as at schools, community projects and homes for senior citizens. The broader community needs to be reflected in the events as audience or participants. We in the Overstrand need to show that we are marching in step with the rest of the country, and that our social gatherings are indicative of the demographics of the region. A reader commented that maybe we should adopt a project once every few months. Most non-governmental organisations struggle to sustain themselves with little or no support, and exist entirely on public donations or by volunteerism. It is a laudable idea, and obviously a distinct way forward. Let the relevant organi-

sation drive the initiative with the support of local business, schools and churches, and with free advertising. The revenue garnered should be sufficient to keep an organisation afloat, especially if the whole community were to get involved. Each region could link it up with a major event, with a percentage of the proceeds going to the affected organisation. The tourism bureau could also be a participant in the process. Tourism departments in other parts of the country and the world take a proactive role in the social and economic development of those specific regions. We sell the region by connecting the people of the area with the rest of the world through marketing our assets – our natural resources and ourselves.

Noise control – enough is enough Is the trophy ours? Lately we often read about dogs and their behaviour that should and must be kept under control. One aspect that is hardly mentioned is the way the Overstrand Municipality goes about controlling the abnormal, irritating noise of animals. At a social meeting not so long ago, this topic caused much unruly emotion. I realised there are too many credible frustrated people to let it just go by. By law, noise nuisance is described as any sound that disturbs or impairs or may disturb or impair the convenience or peace of any person. “Animal” includes dogs, cats, birds and poultry (Environment Conservation Act, noise control regulations). No person may keep a dog that causes an unreasonable disturbance to inhabitants of the neighourhood (Overstrand Municipality bylaw). Why is it that law enforcers can give a traffic offender a fine on the spot (and a very steep fine it is) but cannot address the unacceptable noise of animals with the same intensity? Why is it that a request to solve the problem of noisy animals is so difficult? I believe some cases drag on for as long as a year to be solved

in the court. Why? How do other municipalities go about this noisy problem? And internationally? Surely something must be done to solve these problems significantly and satisfactorily when and as they are reported – not a year later when annoyance with those involved runs out of control to the extent that it gets “ugly”. If the cases are addressed with satisfaction, within the law, the law enforcers can quickly move on to other cases. Not only will this way of dealing with a noise nuisance give them more job satisfaction, but the community will be pleased and at ease with a job done well according to the law. The law and order will rule! To help everyone who has suffered in the past, who is having a problem at present, and who will suffer in the future, please write about your experience of the handling of noise controlproblemstonoisenuisance@yahoo.com, or to the paper if you wish. If you cannot email, please drop your letter off or post it to Noise Control, Poste Restante, Kleinmond. Your response is necessary to enhance our case. Thank you.

With the Stormers and Sharks ending up in the same Super Rugby semifinal, South Africa was guaranteed a spot in the final. The Stormers are not bringing a trophy home, but the Sharkies could make us proud yet. Do Gazette readers think the trophy will come to South Africa?Absolutely!

The trials and tribulations of a trigger­happy troop Crimes involving firearms are blessedly rare in our corner of the universe, which is not to say guns aren’t used here – rather that their main deployment is recreational (sadly often in shooting our close cousins, the local baboons). I write this as our transatlantic friends are cursed by their umpteenth public shooting. The surprising thing to me is that it surprises them over and over again. There are such obvious causative factors, which many of them admittedly recognise but seem unable to control: ) there are far more guns than people in the US; ) the biggest industry in the US (along with drugs) is armaments; ) you can buy assault rifles with 30 rounds of armour-piercing bullets over the counter, et cetera. Add to this toxic mess the effect of fighting senseless wars against fanatic infidels

on naïve, vulnerable young minds and the constant stream of TV and films in which arguments are repeatedly settled in favour of the better gun, and you’ve gone a long way to explaining the above. And they also spend trillions of dollars a year on their “defence force”, which never seems to defend, but always to be attacking some oil-rich foreign country. Sensible folk know that those who bear firearms are a thousand times more likely to be shot themselves than those who don’t, and that domestic firearms kill infinitely more family members than intruders. A former neighbour of mine is a recreational shot. One Sunday he and a relative were sitting on their stoep, the best part of a kilometre from me, and, fuelled with the wine of the land (brandy and cola), he fired a shot through my 2 500-litre water tank. The damage was minor, and after a cautionary wait I fixed it with epoxy.

Some months later the tank needed cleaning, and in a moment of folly I let myself down through the small manhole on top, armed only with broom and hose. After the job was done, I suddenly discovered that it was impossible to hoist myself up again through the manhole. As I tried, my elbows spread automatically, leaving me stuck. After several repeats, I sat down for a hard think. I was alone, out of earshot and un-cellphoneable. I am not alarmist by nature, but I suddenly found myself calculating the odds of my neighbour repeating his former target-shooting feat. “Fish in a barrel,” I thought grimly. Spurred on by the resulting adrenaline rush, I squatted directly under the manhole, arms straight up, and jumped madly. I just managed to clear the edge, sticking out my arms as I did (taking off large areas of skin), and hung there before getting up

and dropping off on the outside, saved to be here today to tell you about it. Talking of stats: every time I see a police car or ambulance howling down the road I am reminded that every life saved by getting there a minute earlier is at the expense of some hundred dead drivers and pedestrians. Peace! 2 fouriejh@mweb.co.za

Letter

PBC has its say on the baboons The Pringle Bay Conservancy and Baboon Action Group has completed its baboon protocol document, and has also started introducing several of the important and urgent matters arising from this document. Here follows a short report on these issues. 1. Refuse removal: on request of the Pringle Bay Conservancy (PBC), the Overstrand Municipality (OM) has deployed a municipal employee for seven days a week at the transfer refuse station at the entrance of Pringle. We have also requested that this station be closed with wire mesh as well as a self-closing gate. We are currently awaiting a response from the OM. All non baboon–proof municipal refuse drums in the CBD will be adapted as a matter of urgency. This also includes the non baboon–proof bins at the beach parking areas. The blue swivel drums at the beach and point parking areas will be removed completely and replaced with signage indicating the proper refuse removal procedures. We have instructed the OM to make these changes within 30 days. Failure to complete all above-mentioned work will leave the PBC no option but to report the OM to CapeNature regarding “the feeding of a wild animal”. Regarding the non baboon–proof bins supplied by the OM, and regarding Monday refuse removal: we have addressed several issues regarding this with both the OM and residents. You are instructed to adhere to the relevant laws and bylaws. Any resident not complying will be reported and fined. 2. Feeding of baboons: we have been informed of several Pringle Bay households deliberately feeding baboons either inside or outside their homes. Unfortunately the names or plot numbers of these individuals are not included with the information. You are requested to inform us immediately should you be aware of such actions. Please post your information to the Pringle Bay Conservancy, PO Box 341, Pringle Bay. We do not require your name! 3. PBC Baboon Monitor Project: this very

important project kicked off on 24 July. The monitors include 28 local volunteers and 4 Working for the Coast employees. The first day provided a lot of important information regarding the dynamics of the troop, especially their movements and their response to the yellow bibs and paintball guns. At this initial stage of the project the PBC will be using the paintball guns (supplied by the OM) without the paintballs. The initial response by the baboons has been very interesting. Our adjusted mandate is as follows: deploy monitors in Clarence drive and keep the baboons above this perimeter line. Should this fail, follow the troop through the residential area, allowing the troop to forage. The paintball guns are only to be used should the troop or individual animals approach homes. This is called adaptive baboon training and will hopefully, with other projects to be introduced, help to minimise the conflict. Urgent request: the PBC only has enough funds to sustain this project for six weeks. We also need three two-way radios, and ideally need a sponsored bakkie with canopy. This project is extremely important since the second mandate of it is to collect very important data regarding the dynamics of the troop. This information will allow the PBC to make the correct decisions regarding actions to follow. 4. Awareness campaign: this is probably the single most difficult task on our long list. Let me remind you again that this is not a baboon problem but a baboon problem caused by the actions of humans. I can simply not go into all the detail, but actions include: relevant information to be distributed to all Pringle Bay home owners and visitors; five large CapeNature signs on baboons, as well as human actions, to be erected in Pringle Bay (sponsored by CapeNature and to be erected within the next three weeks); additional human–baboon conflict posters and pamphlets to be supplied to all Pringle Bay

Die Hermanus Times Kalfiefees vind plaas van 8–12 Augustus. Programme is beskikbaar by die Hermanus Times se kantoor, die Kalfiefeeskantoor by die De Wetsaal in Onrus (in ’n mandjie by die veiligheidshek van die kantoor), en by die Money Market-toonbank binnein Checkers. Besprekings kan slegs deur Computicket gedoen word. Bel 0861 915 8000 of gaan na www.computicket.com.

businesses and the public on busy holiday weekends; all the relevant information to be supplied to all companies in the “holiday home rental industry”, as well as the information supplied to all weekend visitors (in rental homes); the distribution of a resident and visitor guide informing individuals on their responsibilities as caretakers of a biosphere reserve and conservancy village. 5. National Geographic Big Baboon House: the PBC and several other conservation-minded organisations have helped to expose the shameful activities of National Geographic, NatGeo Wild and Aquavision. Our actions, including the printed media, radio and television, have helped to keep the pressure on the responsible individuals, organisations and businesses. Our call to you regarding the human–baboon conflict in Pringle Bay (to provide letters to us and the OM) has instigated the projects currently introduced by the PBC. Therefore, please kindly provide the PBC with letters to be forwarded to National Geographic, NatGeo Wild and Aquavision regarding the actions of the responsible parties. 6. Negative comments on Pringle Bay in the printed media (especially local), condemnation of the PBC and myself: the PBC has tried to manage the publicity regarding this issue in a positive manner. However, uninformed individuals in other communities (and one individual in Pringle Bay) have used this opportunity to try and discredit Pringle Bay, our organisation and myself. The Pringle Bay Conservancy is “Proudly Pringle Bay” and will not “not act” should any publicity from uninformed individuals be published or addressed. Several articles in recent weeks in both the Overstrand Herald and Kleinmond Gazette have angered Pringle residents and must be addressed. We kindly request that you support the work and actions of the Pringle Bay Conservancy and join as a member. Funds raised through this membership drive will be used to address the human–baboon conflict in our town. Please be advised that the PBC does not form part of the Pringle Bay Ratepayers’ Association, and therefore requires its own

funds in order for this community organisation to fulfil its duties to the environment and its members. As the only conservation-minded community organisation on the ward committee for Ward 10, we are in the privileged position to be able to address conservation issues in our area at this level. As mentioned, we require three two-way radios and a sponsored bakkie with canopy for our monitor project. We also require a huge amount of printing (baboon awareness material) to be done – please contact us should you have printing contacts. The Pringle Bay Conservancy must thank the Pringle Bay Ratepayers’ Association, its executive committee and especially its chair, Mr Graham Utton, for providing its full support regarding this issue. We must also credit Ward 10 Councillor Mrs Lisel Krige for her contributions, as well as Overstrand Municipality employees Mr Leon Steyn, Mr Fanie Krige, Mrs Cecile Jonkheid and Mrs Liezl Bezuidenhout. Credit should also be given to the deputy mayor of our municipality, Ald Pieter Scholtz, for the best possible act of municipal service delivery rarely received – a quick municipal response. I sincerely hope that we will be able, with our next correspondence, to credit more individuals from the Overstrand Municipality.

FIREWORKS Jan Braai

FEES VAN DIE ONGENOOIDES – PG du Plessis Helgaard Steyn-prys vir letterkunde – die

grootste prys in die land ter waarde van R450 000. Dit word toegeken aan die skrywer van ’n werk uit enige genre in Afrikaans die afgelope vier jaar. Die beoordelaars bestempel die roman as “geen tipiese verhaal oor die Anglo-Boereoorlog nie, omdat die aandag juis gevestig word op ongewone en onbekende fasette van die oorloggeskiedenis”. Die roman handel oor drie generasies van die Van Wyk-familie op hul Vrystaatse plaas, en die bywonergesin, die Minters. Daar is ook ’n Engelse offisier, en ’n Engelse fotograaf. Hoewel my trane vlak sit as ek net dink aan hierdie onmenslike gebeure en droewe geskiedenis, gaan ek ’n kopie opspoor om hierdie, soos almal sê: ongelooflik goeie, boeiende storie te lees, geskryf deur ’n bobaas storieverteller.

“I like T-bone steaks, because they are in the shape of Africa.” –Desmond Tutu, Patron of National Braai Day. National Braai Day (also known as Heritage Day) is celebrated on 24 September every year. Jan Braai, real name Jan Scannell, started this whole thing off five years ago, and has since braaied with thousands of South Africans. So he knows his sparerib from his rib-eye. For a lot of men a book with braai recipes would be like having to ask for directions – but for those of you who haven’t yet mastered the techniques of a perfect braai, or want to pick up a tip or two, this book starts off with the know-how to braai a perfect steak and then moves on to lamb chops, curried sosaties, the most decadent chicken burgers, pork ribs, potjies, rack of lamb, braai staples like braaibroodjies, and even a couple of desserts. Here are a few of Jan’s braai tips. . . Gas is Afrikaans for a guest at your braai, not something you braai with. Nothing beats a real wood fire. Try never to braai with indigenous wood – alien vegetation like rooikrantz and blackwattle drink lots of ground water, and besides, it feels good burning Australian rubbish. Smoke flies to pretty people, so send them to the kitchen to make salad. A cow must only be killed once; do not braai your steak until the flavour is dead. ) Die boek is ook in Afrikaans beskikbaar: Vuurwerke.

SKOENLAPPER – Irma Venter DIE SKRYWER – Esta Steyn

In haar resensie beskryf Amanda de Lange van Beeld hierdie boek as naïef en briljant, en dis raakgevat. Benewens teks/karakter-jakkalsies hier en daar was dit tog ’n lekkerlees-roman. Joernalis Anabella Maria Bennett het as 16-jarige sendelingdogter dolverlief geraak op ’n Amerikaanse draaiboekskrywer wat deel was van ’n span wat in “donker Afrika” ’n rolprent kom skiet het. Elf jaar later, op soek na ’n storie oor hom, word Ana (oftewel Ben/Bennett soos in die boek, maar ek gaan by Ana hou) per toeval aangestel as sy huishoudster, en sy besef sy is nog steeds verlief op die man. In plaas van ’n paparazzistorie doen oor hom, pen Ana die storie van haar Out of Africa-wedervaringe as sendelingdogter, haar grootmaakleeu Paka, en stiefma dr. Catherine. Dis presies die verhaal wat Arthur, as draaiboekskrywer, nodig het om hom uit sy depressie te lig. Maar kry Ana verlossing?

Die skrywer is ’n joernalis met onder meer drie Picatoekennings agter haar naam. Op die agterblad van die boek vertel Venter ook dat reis haar passie is. En sy hou van lughawens, woestyne, Labradors, mense wat nog die moeite doen om kos te maak, Suid-Afrikaanse produkte, goeie whiskey, koffie en sjokolade. Dit alles was vir my tekens dat ek die boek behoort te geniet, en boonop is die hoofkarakters nuuskorrespondente in die buiteland. Die storie handel oor Alex (joernalis) en Ranna (vryskutfotograaf) wat by ’n troue op ’n plekkie tussen Arusha en Dar es Salaam ontmoet. Kort voor lank besef Alex Ranna het ’n verlede wat besig is om haar in te haal en hy moet besluit of hy lief genoeg is vir haar om deel te word van haar chaos wat lyf begin kry die dag toe ’n Amerikaanse IT-biljoenêr op ’n strand uitspoel. Skoenlapper is Venter se debuut spanningsroman, en sy mág maar skryf.

White steenbras take a bite ALTHOUGH the weather wasn’t playing ball recently, a number of hardy anglers have reported landing white steenbras between four and six kilos from a number of popular local venues. On Macassar beach, Attie Stander of the Strand was fishing near the Eerste River mouth with four of the local Macassar “manne” using bloodworm as bait when he and another angler had strikes simultaneously. He landed a five-kilo white steenbras, and the other a four-kilo stenbras. That evening two small kob and a number of dassie were caught in Melk Bay. The kob were undersize and returned to the water. Willie Byleveldt, who regularly fishes the Betty’s Bay area, reported that there were two nice-size white steenbras landed at Aasbankies at the weekend before last. He added that local angler Jan Jesperson,who was fishing with wonderworm, also caught a galjoen and a 4,5 kg steenbras from “Die Been”. The very low tide last Monday morning was ideal for scratching around for wonderworm in Betty’s Bay and Hangklip. Anglers who fish with wonderworm salt half the wonderworm they collect to use at a later stage, and use the rest at high tide. Wonderworm is an excellent bait for galjoen, white steenbras and musselcracker.

:Attie Stander of Strand with a fine white steenbras caught at the Eerste River mouth on Macassar beach using bloodworm as bait. During the weekend before last, the break in the weather allowed boats that launched at Smitswinkel Bay to fish at Cape Point. Most boats reported good catches of snoek, and one of the skippers reported that although the water was clear there were plenty of baitfish to keep the snoek around for long periods. The Gordon’s Bay Boat Angling Club’s unders and overs fishing competition was won by the under-50 teams for the first time since the competition’s inception. The SA National Inshore Boating Competition, which commenced in Kleinbaai on Wednesday, finished on Saturday. Western Province was represented by two teams at the competition – a blue team

and a red team. The blue team comprised Daniel Hughes (captain), Louis Bekker and Peter Delano. The red team consisted of Mike Pululla (captain), Mark Truter and Gus Rautermann. With the present weather pattern there should be good snoek fishing from the “ou snoek gronde”. This snoek fishing venue is reached by steering straight out of Gordon’s Bay harbour, running parallel with the mountain. There is usually bird life in the area, and the snoek shoals can be easily located on the echo sounder. There are also usually a number of boats present that know the exact location. I was sad to hear about the death of Paul

(Whitey) Fouche, a well-known local businessman and a friend who for several years was the owner of the very successful wholesale fish factory in the Strand. Besides being a top fishmonger, he was possibly the best boat skipper the Strand has ever known. Whitey’s knowledge of local, Namibian and international long-lining and trolling was legendary. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him, and I hope his family will keep up the good work. ) For all your reel repairs and services contact Art on 021 854 3831.

Hawston Sekondêr Kleinmond se segetog voort se toer na Kiwi­land Hawston Sekondêr het ’n mylpaal bereik deurdat daar vir die eerste keer in die 18 jaar van die skool se bestaan ’n groep onderwysers en leerlinge onder die skool se vaandel vroeër vandeesmaand op ’n studietoer na die buiteland vertrek het. Die o.19 A rugbyafrigter Anton Esau, vertel in sy eie woorde van hul wonderlike toer, ’n belewenis wat hulle nie sommer sal vergeet nie: Ongelooflik, onbeskryflik! Dit is hoe ek ons 10 dae in Nieu-Zeeland kan beskryf. Na ’n 34 uur en 25 000 km later met Emirates via Dubai, was alles die moeite werd. Aetearoua, wat beteken “Land with the long white cloud” het die Maori’s Nieu-Zeeland genoem toe hulle hierdie twee weggesteekte eilande ontdek het. Ons het in Auckland geland om 13:00 die middag. Die Kiwi’s se vriendelikheid op die lughawe was om oorweldigend en ons het dadelik tuisgevoel. Dieselfde aand het ons Eden Park besoek, waar die magtige All Blacks die wêreldbeker twee keer gewen het. Die wedstryd tussen die Auckland Blues en Western Force was fantasties. Anders as die SA-spanne, was hierdie manne meer as gretig om ons te kom groet. Ons het toe Rotorua, Taupo, Wellington en Hamilton besoek. Die Mitai Maori Show in Rotorua was onvergeetlik. Ons het groot respek vir die Maorikultuur ontwikkel. In Rotorua het ons ook hul “geysers””en “mudbaths” besoek. Dit is letterlik stoom wat uit die aarde kom en modder en water verhit. In die hoofstad, Wellington het ons die wedstryd tussen die Chiefs en Hurricanes bygewoon. Die middag het ons alreeds baie van die spelers in die plaaslike McDonalds ontmoet. Alle supermarkte maak midder-

WENDY TAWSE Keinmond se rugbyspanne het tuis teen Young Hamiltons (Worcester) gespeel en het al drie wedstryde gewen. Die A-span het in ’n nael bytwedstryd geseëvier met 15–13. Altwee spanne het vir opwindende rugby gesorg en in die tweede helfte het Kleinmond-ondersteuners naels

gekou van senuwees, maar hulle span het uiteindelik die knoop deurgehak. Menolan Plaaitjies en Travis Malgas en het elk ’n drie gedruk en Creswil October het een drie verdoel. Denzil Arendse het ook met ’n strafskop geslaag. Die B-span het die beste wedstryd van die dag gespeel en het met 33–13 gewen. Emile Swarts,

Barrian Barry (3) en Ethan May het vir die drieë gesorg en Barry het twee drieë verdoel, terwyl Elvino Hopley en Dustin Stewart elk ’n drie verdoel het. Die C-span het 14–5 gewen. Ethan May het twee drieë gedruk en Dustin Stewart het altwee verdoel. Dit was ’n suksesvolle naweek vir Kleinmond-rugbyklub.

Anton Esau nag toe en 06:00 soggens oop. Ons het ook in Wellington die Te Papamuseum besoek. Ons het ontdek die vinnigste motorfiets is in in dié land ontwerp en gebou! Dit deur ’n man wat nie kon vorder op skool nie. ’n Paar dinge wat anders is as hier: - Alle mense is gelyk. Hulle koppel hoë waarde aan om nuwe mense te ontmoet. - Daar is nie uiters ryk en uiters arm mense nie. - Almal het ’n goeie huis - Niemand jaag in hul paaie nie. Die spoedlimiet is 100 km/h op hoofpaaie. - Niemand stap wanneer ’n robot rooi is nie, al is daar geen motor in sig nie. - Hulle het groot respek vir die Springbokke, maar aanbid die All Blacks! - Daar is geen slange in Nieu-Seeland nie!

WAAR’S DIE BAL?

Dis ’n stryd om balbesit

Die manne spook.

Classic Clashes Dit is amper tyd vir die jaarlikse FNB Classic Clash-stryd tussen Hawston Sekondêr en Hoërskool Hermanus. Hawston het in 2010 met 25–21 koning gekraai, terwyl Hermanus in 2011 met 10–5 die wenners was, dus het dié stryd al die elemente van ’n spannende finaal. Hawston Sekondêr is die gasheerskool en die rugby- en netbalwedstryde sal by die Hawston-sportgronde plaasvind. Leerlinge met skoolklere sal gratis toegang kry, terwyl volwassenes R15 sal betaal. Geen drank sal

op die perseel toegelaat word nie. “Ons skool is in die wolke, aangesien ons die clash vanjaar in ons plaaslike gemeenskap aanbied. Dankie vir Hoërskool Hermanus se onbaatsugtigheid die afgelope twee jaar om dit op hul sportgronde aan te bied. “Hierdie jaar het ons gemeenskap egter die voorreg om te ervaar hoe ons skool die clash op eie bodem aan hulle kan voorhou,” het Idy Adams, Hawston Sekondêr se skoolhoof, gesê. Die stryd vind op 4 Augustus plaas en verrigtinge begin om 08:15.

SPOG MET NUWE VERE: Die Rietpoel Rugbyklub net buite Caledon het drie weke gelede T-hempies van Ben Louis Fourie (inlas) van Kleinmond Skrynwerke ontvang. Volgens hul afrigter, André McKenzie, is hulle baie dankbaar vir die skenking en sien hulle uit na talle oorwinnings dié komende seisoen. FOTO: DANTJIE PAPIER
