RESIDENTS near the end of the Sterkspruit plot road just before the train line are at the end of their patience with the illegal dumping of dead animals on this section of the road. The picture featured here was taken on Monday morning by the Highlands Panorama News after a phone call from one of the residents. Apparently this practice has been going on for years, not only of dead animals, but also live, unwanted puppies and other fully grown dogs. Not only is the smell unbearable for people living in the area, but the carcasses pose a significant health risk as the animal decomposes. The puppies and larger dogs that are dumped alive follow the road after they are dumped and land up on plots along this road. There is no way to tell if these animals are vaccinated against Rabies or are carrying diseases like Parvo etc and as such pose a health and safety risk to residents. Some of the larger dogs are also starting to bother cattle in the area and farmers are concerned that calves may be attacked and killed as these dogs are hungry. It is illegal to dump a dead pet on the side of the road or in an open area. The correct procedure is people must take a deceased pet to the Municipal landfill site, state at the gate that they have an animal carcass for burial, they will be directed to where the diggers are working and a hole will be dug immediately and the animal buried for them. The Highlands Panorama News regularly receives complaints about dead pets being dumped in open areas. Another problem area seems to be near the river in Maasdorp Street. Illegal dumping is a punishable offence in terms of the bylaws that are implemented for this purpose. People caught dumping animals, dead or alive may face prosecution.

Samancor, Eastern Chrome Mines invest in skills upliftment S

amancor Eastern Chrome Mines Engineering Training Centre was officially opened by the General Manager Mr Emile Britz on 18 October 2012, by the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the occasion. The opening of the training centre has been necessitated by the accreditation requirements set by the Mining industries SETA, namely the Mine Qualifications Authority (MQA). Eastern Chrome Mines has achieved full accreditation status for engineering “On the Job” training phases on 12 November 2010, for engineering disciplines namely

Electrical, Boilermaking, Fitting and Diesel Mechanic. The training centre has been equipped with up to date and modern equipment to deal with the challenges of on the job training for Operatives and Learnerships. It will also be used to develop portable skills of mine employees. The facility has now embarked on training members of the community within the Samancor Socio Economic area on practical novice Engineering Skills and short courses, consisting of basic Electricity, Fitting and Boilermaking. These courses will assist to identify learners for future Learnerships and possible employm e n t w i t h Samancor.

Quick reponse, step in right Esmé se skilderye direction for Kellysville roer hartsnare

Esmé Naudé en haar man Frik. Michelle Boshoff

Tumbleweed Plant Nursery saw the letter on the front page of the Highlands Panorama News last week and immediately contacted the Office of the Thaba Chweu Mayor. They offered to donate trees to create an avenue of trees to Kellysville. The Mayor and his staff visited the nursery on Friday to collect the trees. It will be planted within the next two weeks. The Mayor said he knows that will not solve all the problems of Kellysville but he was glad that businesses are already involved and that the letter created such a quick response. ~ By Michelle Boshoff

CMR Lydenburg beroep hul op plaaslike boere CMR Lydenburg geleë in Burger str 15 is 'n onafhanklike welsynsorganisasie wat steun op skenkings en donasies. Huidiglik voorsien CMR Lydenburg kospakkies aan 35 gesinne op 'n weeklikse basis. Vars groente en vrugte is egter 'n lekkerny en 'n skaarste aangesien CMR nie skenkings van hierdie aard ontvang nie. CMR Lydenburg doen hiermee 'n beroep op die boere in en om ons plaaslike gemeenskap van Lydenburg om indien moontlik en sou hul oorskot hê aan enige vrugte en groente ons van hulp sal wees deur 'n skenking te maak ten opsigte hiervan vir ons weeklikse koskas. Indien enige van ons boere met oop harte ons wil help kan hul ons gerug tydens kantoorure skakel op 013 235 2407 of ons besoek in Burger str 15. CMR Lydenburg wil terselftertyd van die geleentheid gebruik maak om almal wat ons tot dusver deur die jaar ook op ander gebiede van hulp was van harte te bedank, sonder julle hulp sou ons taak veel moeiliker gewees het.

DIT is nou ongetwyfeld die sosiale geleentheid van die jaar. Esmé Naudé is ’n baie beskeie mens en dit is duidelik dat sy haar werk baie geniet. Dit spreek uit die pragtige kunswerke wat sy jaar-na-jaar oplewer en ten toon stel. Die rooi plakkertjies wat binne

minute op die skilderye vertoon, as verkoop, is ook bewys daarvan dat sy diep in die mense se harte gekruip het met haar kuns.

elkom op die Erger-as-kopaf-planeet. Jy smag na groener weivelde. Kontraste werk op jou brein. 'n Stabiele, perfekte wêreld kan tog nie só sleg wees nie. Geen moord, geen roof, geen verkragting, geen geldnagmerries en omstrede wapenstransaksies nie. Hier op Erger-as-kopaf misgis jy die soutpot met die suikerpot en die ontbytpap proe snaaks. 'n Flertsie kos sit nog aan jou gesig vas as jy met mense praat. Dis mos nou nie hoe jy by die huis is nie, dit gebeur net. Op Kopaf vergeet jy van die klein genadetjies. Jy kyk net vas teen jou eie oogklappe se swaar en moeilik. En om die cliché te gebruik, daar is soveel om oor dankbaar te wees. Miskien is dit 'n weerspreking. “Soveel tot dankbaarheid” is nie 'n cliché nie, dis 'n waarheid. Ek kla my hart uit by 'n petroljoggie. Moet sente aftel vir brandstof, want die prys is te hoog. En hy sê: “Jy het baie”. Dit ruk my. Ja, ek het baie. Dis net jammer mense, ek veral, besef dit nie. Daar staan in Belfast ’n ou vrou met 'n pienk windbreker en dik grys wolkouse. Sy soek 'n saamrygeleentheid. Daar het nog goed op haar wit kartonbord gestaan. Ek wou nie die bord lees nie. As mens belangstelling toon word jy dalk verplig om die res van die hand te gee. Duisende goed hardloop deur jou kop. Jou lewe speel baas oor jou gedagtes. Om 'n hand uit te reik en 'n ander se lot te versag is nie deel daarvan nie. Tot die dag dat rolle dalk omgeruil word. Die windbreker-vrou en jou dolle gejaag na wind is twee uiteenlopende pole. So is die lewe, so is die lot, kla te veel dan word jy vrot. Mense vra altyd “Hallo, hoe gaan dit?” en daar word geantwoord “goed en jy?” Dis al 'n standaard groetvorm. Behoede die dag as jy vir die vraag-steller oor die regte stand van sake inlig. Gou sal hy sy spyt afbyt. Almal ervaar dit. 'n Geroesmoes van emosies. Tussen jou eie kopkappe moet jy ander se gedagtes aanhoor en dalk nog 'n glimlag op jou gesig sit. Alles gaan deesdae om die eie-ek-waardigheid. Is die gebrek aan empatie 'n siekte van ons tyd? Ek glo vas dat die goeie fee met haar towerstaf oornag ons siek wêreld sal omtower in 'n reënboog en 'n pot vol goud. Daardie dag sal jy nie met jou kop in jou hande sit en jou deurmekaar brein druk en druk om sin te kry nie. Wat 'n vermaaklike skouspel van teenstrydighede.... die lewe.

Biker day of Remembrance for fallen ‘biker buddies’

Biking is our Thing, but Jesus is our KING...

Uit die Woord From the Word GENESIS 6:13 Toe sê God vir Noag: “Ek het besluit om 'n einde te maak aan alle mense, want deur hulle toedoen is die aarde vol geweld. Ek gaan hulle saam met die aarde verdelg. Here, help ons as mensdom om nie dieselfde pad te volg wat lei tot u woede nie - Amen.


Dooie honde SO, die vergiftiging van honde ten einde misdaad te bevorder, duur onverpoos voort. Die ganse dorp met al sy slim mense, die gifhandelaars, al die sekuriteitsfirmas en die polisiemag, kan skynbaar nie hierdie probleem hokslaan nie, ten spyte van enkelinge se pogings. Wat ’n patetiese spul is ons nie! Niemand wonder waarvoor slenter ’n man doelloos na donker in die strate rond nie (hy gooi dalk gif), of wat soek ’n motorfiets vieruur in die oggend

agterop ’n sleepwa of bakkie nie (dis waarskynlik gesteel). Daar word beweer dat hoe meer misdaad, hoe beter doen die sekerheidsfirmas en hoe beter is die kanse dat die polisie se hulpbronne verbeter kan word. Is dit onwaar? Daar baie wat met my praat wat sweer dat dit so is. Dit is soos die ou storie van sekere inslepers wat voorheen hier gewerk het, wat olie op straatkruisings uitgooi vir besigheid na die ongeluk wat sekerlik gaan gebeur. As iemand sterf - oeps - nie daaraan gedink nie, maar besigheid is besigheid! Wat se soort gemeenskap koester ons in ons midde? Sê ons maar net dat ons Christene is? Hoe leef ons met ons self saam? Of is ons geestelik so afgetakel en versteurd dat

Me. Heila Dreyer van Lydenburg skryf: Ek wil graag vir Sun Security sê baie dankie vir jul geduld en jul flink en vinnige optrede as daar fout is by ons. Ek waardeer julle en slaap nou rustig in die aand. Julle is altyd bereid om te help en besorg oor ons veiligheid.

ons geen gewete meer het nie? Moet wees, want nou laai mense selfs dooie honde en kan jy glo, lewendige klein hondjies in bokse langs die pad by die spoor anderkant die hospitaalplotte af! Op 50/50 sien ons hoe mense vir geld honde uitvoer om te veg. Wat ’n vieslike, korrupte, gedegenereerde spul! En dit is dieselfde mense wat heeldag vir jou vertel hoe vrot die regering is en hoe ons paaie lyk en dat die land uitmekaar val! En ons rassisme vier hoogty, veral na die derde dop. Wie sou kon glo dat blankes agter die motor- en motorfietsdiefstalle sit (en dus indirek agter die vergiftigings)? Ek het die bewyse op video. Weereens kyk ons na misdaad vanuit ’n rassistiese oogpunt. Ons is nie net Goddeloos nie, ons is God verlate. Dink aan die verskil en wonder dan hoekom. En dan reel ons biddae om die ou sakie gou weer reg te stel. Of so dink ons. Ons optrede (vir geld) is erger as die van ’n pak honger honde en dit stink erger as enige dooie hond. Sies man, watse soort mense is ons?

Art exhibition for Charity


Michelle Boshoff


pending the day in a splendid garden under the shade of trees could not be a more fitting day for the Garden Club. The day was hosted by Tumbleweed Nursery in Lydenburg. No expense or effort were spared to make this a ‘blooming’ success. Thank you to all the o rg a n i s e r s a n d e v e r y o n e w h o contributed to this day. The Garden Club has members from Lydenburg, Ohrigstad, Dullstroom and surrounding areas. The ladies all had hats on, befitting the occasion which gave the event a fun theme.

andra Gregory of African Art in Rensburg street is holding a charitable function for the p e n s i o n e r s o f Ly d e n b u r g , i n conjunction with the Dienssentrum. She is calling on all artists to exhibit their art and hopefully sell some of the art outside of the Dienssentrum on 2 and 3 November. The road will be closed from the Dienssentrum to Spar service entrance, making it a safe venue for people to support the event. 20% of the proceeds of the sales will go to the Dienssentrum. The Dienssentrum will also be providing refreshments to raise money as well. There is no entrance fee for the public, but the exhibitors will be paying a small fee to go towards the fundraising. All art entries for the exhibition must be brought to African

Art by Wednesday 31 October. If you have a late entry, please call Sandra on 071 539 1183 to arrange submission. There will also be a competition for Children at school level from 3 to 18 years of age. The theme is Save The Rhino and they must submit 2 pictures each: one pencil sketch and one painted rhino on an A4 page, any medium is acceptable. Name, age and school must be on the back of the submissions. Judging of the competition will be done by Lydenburg artists.

Otees, Lydenburg, had a Lion Safety Matches competition in store, where the lucky draw for this competition took place. The winner stood a chance of being the proud owner of a Blackberry 9300 cellphone.

D.I.Y. Lydenburg helps you save a lot! “I bought a geyser blanket at D.I.Y., Lydenburg and I can tell you I’m saving all the way on my electricity bill! Even if you only rent a house or flat, the geyser blanket still saves you and if you do move out of the rental, you take your geyser blanket with you.”- said a happy consumer. The Pioneer Geyser Blanket is a fast, simple, and effective method of saving up to 27% of your electricity bill in winter and summer. The Pioneer Geyser Blanket consists of an insulation material, assisted by an air gap and an outer reflective coating. The essence of fitting a geyser with the geyser blanket is to minimize the thermal energy (heat) loss, thereby saving energy. Eskom DSM has supported the installation of geyser blankets for the past few years. Theoretical calculations show that substantial savings can be achieved with the installation of geyser blankets. 125 000 Pioneer Geyser Blankets fitted for Eskom with a saving of 7,6 megawatt (27% Saving). It complies with all test requirements as per the CSIR Fire Tests, as well as the Moisture Absorption and Fungal Attack Tests conducted by the SABS. The Pioneer Frosty is recommended as an outside wrapping for geysers in the domestic

and industrial sector. D.I.Y, Lydenburg is currently running a special on this geyser blanket and they fit it for you too! Just remember that if you only rent your home to have a look how they install the geyser blanket so that you can remove and fit it next time on your own. This will be your own investment so contact them at 013 235 1956.

e. Lorraine Visser is g e h o o r g e s t re m d i n h a a r regteroor vanaf sewejarige ouderdom en het twintig persent gehoor in haar regteroor as gevolg van masels wat sy kleintyd opgedoen het. “Die persepsie by mense daar buite is dat gegestremde of gestremde mense niks kan doen nie behalwe in hul eie wêreld leef. Ek is een van baie wat gaan wys dat ek my bestuurderslisensie gaan kry, want die Vader het my oë vir my gegee. Ek oefen al lank en

hard by Hilda se bestuurskool (K53) en sy praat darem hard en ek lees haar lippe. Baie baie dankie vir die geduld Hilda en Lavonne vir jul ondersteuning en geduld.

Maropeng - 'n Setswana woord wat beteken om terug te keer na jou plek van herkoms. Op Woensdag 17 Oktober vertrek leerlinge van Laerskool Ohrigstad op 'n toer wat hulle miljoene jare terugneem op die spoor van Mev. Ples en Little Foot. Ons hou ons lyf wetenskaplike by SCI-ENZA (Tuks wetenskapsentum) en ry grootoog in die spoggerige Gautrain. Die argitektuur van die Voortrekkermonument slaan ons asems weg en by die Munt druk ons 'n munstuk met "Oom Paul"


wat reeds sedert 1891 munte druk. Bloukolle en kneusplekke vertel van ysskaats by die Kollonade, ons sit ons 3-D brille op vir 'n skreeusnaakse animasie fliek en die dapperes onder ons vryf 'n luislang by Harties se Slang- en Dierepark. By Gold Reef City word ons deur die "Anakonda" ingesluk en ry teen 'n duiselingwekkende spoed op die "Golden Loop.� Ons groet die stad maar bra onwillig, maar is opreg dankbaar teenoor elkeen wat die toer vir ons moontlik gemaak het.

Longtom Nissan Toy Run staan sterk LONGTOM NISSAN, Lydenburg, het hul NP200 bakkie ingespan en grafiese werk daarop laat doen sodat die publiek kan sien waar die bakkie en die Nissan-span oral besig is om hierdie jaar weer kinderharte te verbly! Hierdie Toy Run projek word elke jaar deur Mnr Fred Zeeman en sy span gedryf en hulle ry oral heen om speelgoed op te laai en na die handelaarskap te neem, waar hulle die speelgoed op eie onkoste skoonmaak of herstel en dan toedraai vir die minderbevoorregte kinders in ons dorp. Die publiek bring elke jaar ook self van die speelgoed wat net in die huis rondlê of wat in onbruik is na Longtom Nissan. Kom ons help hulle weer hierdie jaar om ’n glimlag op ’n kindergesiggie te sit. Onthou net dat die tyd tot Kersfees vinnig besig is om uit te loop, want daar is nog net agt weke oor en hule moet nog die geskenke toedraai! Komaan Lydenburg, kom ons help Longom Nissan!

New fashion icon at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa

THE trendy and hip centre of Melrose Arch was abuzz as a week of fashion got underway with the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa during the week of 24 October to 28 October 2012. Local and international designers, buyers and fashionistas converged at one of the most desirable addresses in the City of Gold – Johannesburg – for the long-awaited Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa. Following the tremendous success of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town, the week promised to entice with a line-up of over fifty designers showing “African Fashion at its best”! Household names such as Marianne Fassler, David Tlale, Gavin Rajah and Abigail Betz were amongst top African designers from exotic and exciting African countries including neighbours – Angola, the DRC and Mozambique, to Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana, Trinidad and Morocco. “Mercedes-Benz values its partnership with AFI (Africa Fashion International) as the opportunity to bring together designers from all over Africa. The accessories, fabrics and colour schemes chosen are items that detail many of the fashion looks on the cutting-edge of both street fashion and broader design themes playing out within the industry,” says Claudia Mende, Marketing Manager, Mercedes-Benz Cars. “The culmination of all these successful events was the awards ceremony on Sunday 28 October, with a number of awards being handed out to emerging designers and local and international designers,” adds Mende. Amongst these exciting African designers, Mercedes-Benz was highlighting a fashion icon of its own, the all-new 2012 G-Glass. Drawing patrons to the fashionably displayed G 63 AMG with its mighty V8 engine delivering 400 kW of power and 760 Nm of torque, this legendary iconic model remained the star attraction. Designed and developed over thirty-three years ago, the G-Class is one of the most highlyrecognizable luxury off-road vehicles with no real competitor. The G-Class has been voted offroader of the year countless times over the past years, including this latest edition. It is equally at home throughout the city streets and extremely athletic while seriously going offroad. Its sculpted, muscular body and hand crafted interior is fit for fashion and its design and capabilities shows-off well in any situation. “The fashion industry knows better than anyone the importance of looking great and fashionable in the season's hottest collections,” added Mende. “The new G-Class demonstrates how refined sportiness and the evolution of technology can be iconic, whilst at the same time fashionable and trendy,” concludes Mende. Over the years more and more G-Class models are seen on roads in a number of countries in Africa, as it is a product that has proven itself in unchartered territory. The eye-catching, heart-stopping G 63 AMG remained on parade at the event during the week prior to its official launch in mid-November. The full new range of G-Class models including the G 350 BlueTEC, the G 500 and the G 63 AMG will be available at all Mercedes-Benz passenger car dealerships thereafter. By email

GT-Academy - It’s not a game anymore WELCOME to the 21st century, where the virtual world seamlessly morphs into the real one. Or at least that's how it worked out for Lucas Ordoñez, who has gone from being a student with a Playstation and a healthy interest in racing games, to a works driver for Nissan, with a podium finish at Le Mans to his name. The 27-year-old Spaniard was the winner of the inaugural Nissan GT Academy in 2008, an innovative and action-packed competition based around Playstation's Gran Turismo racing game. Gran Turismo features 'virtual' versions of performance icons such as the Nissan GT-R and 370Z. It's incredible simulation has opened up a whole new world for a new generation of race drivers. There was certainly doubt that a gaming console could provide a stepping stone to international motorsport success, however Lucas' success has proved it possible. While he was an avid gamer with a passion for Gran Turismo, he never dreamed he'd become a 'real' race driver. So when he went from his lounge to an LMP2 drive at Le Mans - finishing on the podium at his first attempt last year - it was a dream come true. “Winning GT Academy has changed my life,” says Lucas, lean and athletic in the modern race driver mould. “It was by chance that I came across the competition in a motoring magazine and decided to give it a go. I wasn't a very serious gamer, but when I played my friends I usually won, so I had a bit of a feeling for it, I think.” On-line success meant he graduated to the Spanish finals, and as one of the top three in that round went through to a European final at Silverstone in the UK – a week of motorsport 'Boot Camp' which also paid attention to aspects such as fitness and media relations. This was also the first time in the process that competitors actually sat in a racing machine, as opposed to in front of a console, and kicked off with tuition and assessment in karts before graduating to the likes of the 370Z and GT-R. Little did he know that winning the final would result in him driving tracks like Nurburgring, his Madrid home track Jarama, and others in the real world. In 2009 and 2010 he learnt the ropes in the European GT4 championship at the wheel of

a 370Z, overcoming some initial antagonism from other drivers who felt he hadn't really earned the right to be there. He drove a GT-R Club Track Edition in the Nurburgring 24-hour in May, appropriately sharing the car with Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of the Gran Turismo genre. “The Nurburgring is something else. The car we drove was only slightly modified, but it coped brilliantly with 24-hours at the 'Ring. It was a really crazy race, very scary at times!” grins Lucas. “I did a lot of my preparation on Gran Turismo and when I got to the Nurburgring I knew exactly where I was on the course from the first lap, and I knew where to brake and what lines to take. Gran Turismo is much more than a game and guys who are quick on Gran Turismo were usually quick on the track. Sure, you can't feel the car in a real way but when driving with a good steering wheel and pedals set-up it is like being in a proper car: you have to brake correctly, use the right lines, and apply all those little skills you develop and use in a race car. It is great tool to learn.” Straight after his flying visit to South Africa to launch GT Academy locally, Lucas flew to Atlanta, where he will drive the revolutionary Nissan Delta Wing race car in the 10-hour Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, a round of the American Le Mans Series, on October 20. And by visiting You Tube and searching for Juke R, you can see Lucas in action at the wheel of a Nissan Juke R, dicing a Lamborghini and Ferrari around the streets of Dubai, leaving the supercars eating his that beats virtual reality hands down.

Two in a row for Team Ford Racing CHRIS Visser and Japie Badenhorst claimed Team Ford Racing's second successive victory in the penultimate round of the Absa Off Road championship. The result has kept the Ford crew's championship hopes alive with the title now to be decided at the final round of the season. Visser and Badenhorst demonstrated their competiveness early on in the weekend by taking the runner-up slot in Friday's prologue session – one second behind the leaders. They quickly made their way to the front as Visser drove a faultless race to secure victory in the Ford dealer-sponsored Human Auto 400. “We needed a win to keep our championship aspirations alive and that's just what we were able to do this weekend,” explains Visser. “The Ranger has been performing exceptionally well of late. This has allowed us to claw back some ground in the championship battle that will now be settled at the final round.”

Lance Woolridge and Ward Huxtable in the sister SP Ford Ranger ran a consistent race by taking seventh place after maintaining a solid pace through much of the event. A navigational error in Friday's prologue session meant they weren't able to compete at the front of the field but the pair used the event in order to gain further experience in what proved to be a fast-paced and rough event. This was a very tight race and the top finishing times were all incredibly close. “We made a navigational error in the prologue which meant we started in a position that was not necessarily indicative of our pace. It also left us to contest with substantial dust, one of the disadvantages of a late start,” explained Lance. Overall the team were pleased with the weekend's results with Team Manager Neil Woolridge singing the praises of his team: “Chris and Japie had a fantastic race, perhaps their best ever. They were under intense pressure throughout the race – at times sandwiched between their toughest competitors – but never lost their composure. I'd like to thank the team for their faultless preparation ahead of this event, both cars were trouble-free throughout the weekend and we were able to put on a fantastic performance for the Ford fans.” With one round remaining the team are now looking ahead to the next race and ensuring both Class SP Ford Rangers are once again thoroughly prepared and ready to battle for championship honours. Team Ford Racing's efforts would not be possible without the support of its dedicated sponsors BP, Castrol, Innovation Group, Motorvia, Sign S o l u t i o n s a n d Ti m e F r e i g h t . By email

Rooikatfees - wat ’n fees DIE pas afgelope Rooikatfees op die plaaslike rugbyveld het heelwat belangstelling uitgelok. Gaskunstenaars soos Lianie May, Snotkop, Armand Hofmeyr, Dawid Fourie en ander het opgetree. Die Curriebeker eindstryd is op ’n grootskerm TV uitgesaai. Die stalletjies wat daar was, veral die biertuin, is druk besoek. Die geleentheid was ongelukkig nie wyd in die plaaslike media adverteer nie, met hoofsaaklik plakkate wat in die dorp op was. Bywoning was derhalwe teleurstellend. Lydenburg is bekend daarvoor dat hy feeste slegs goed ondersteun as daar ’n baie groot verskeidenheid van items en besienswaardige dinge aangebied word en dit baie lank voor die tyd sterk gepromofeer word. Daar was bv. feitlik geen plaaslike besighede wat uitgestal het nie. Na ons mening was die toegangsfooi redelik, in ag genome die gaskunstenaars wat opgetree het. Van Lelievlei se inwoners het opgetree as motorwagte, die hekke beman en party het diens gedoen by van die stalletjies. In medewerking met Frik Rousseau
