Chantal en Louwrens Geldenhuys kort na hul huwelikseremonie.

’n Jong bruid word volgende week uit dieselfde kerk begrawe as waar sy die afgelope naweek met die liefde van haar lewe getroud is. Dieselfde dominee wat die 26-jarige Chantal (nÊe Beetge) en Louwrens (Boeta) Geldenhuys (31) in die huwelik bevestig het, sal ook haar begrafnisdiens lei. Die bruidspaar se lang-beplande sprokieslewe saam is Saterdagnag, ’n paar uur na hul huwelikseremonie, skielik beÍindig na ’n gru-ongeluk op die hoek van Sefako Makgathoweg en Dr Van der Merwerylaan toe die bestuurder van ’n Hilux-bakkie na bewering ’n rooi verkeerslig verontagsaam het. Chantal is op die toneel dood. Boeta was teen druktyd steeds in ’n kritieke toestand in die intensiewesorgeenheid van ’n Montana hospitaal. Hy het onder meer inwendige beserings en ’n gebreekte bekken opgedoen en is steeds aan ’n ventilator gekoppel. Teen druktyd was hy nog onbewus dat hy voortaan ’n enkelouer vir hul 5-jarige seun, Louwrens (jnr), sal moet wees. Louwrens (jnr) word tans deur sy ouma versorg. Die bestuurder van die Hilux, Abram Mphenga Themba (40) van Kwamahlanga, het Maandag op klagtes van dronkbestuur en strafbare manslag in die Pretoria-Noord landdroshof verskyn. Themba, ’n weermag stafsersant, is nie gevra om te pleit nie en is op R2 000 borg vrygelaat. Hy verskyn weer in die hof op 7 Februarie. Die gru-ongeluk het omstreeks 01:00 plaasgevind terwyl die pasgetoudes, na afloop van die onthaal,

oppad was na ’n nabygeleĂŤ gastehuis vir hul huweliksnag. Volgens ’n ooggetuie, Magda Hayes, het die egpaar pas by ’n groen verkeerslig weggetrek toe die Hilux, wat glo teen ’n geweldige spoed gery het, hul blou Golf aan die passasierskant getref het. “Dit het gelyk asof die motor ontplof en die glas het soos konfetti oor die teerpad gestrooi,â€? het sy aan Rekord gesĂŞ. Die Golf het omgerol en teen ’n verkeersligpaal tot stilstand gekom. “In geen stadium het die bestuurder probeer rem of spoed verminder nie - daar was nie eers ’n enkele remmerk van sy motor op die pad nie.â€? Hayes en haar man het hulle na die toneel gehaas. Chantal het nog enkele minute gelewe. Paramedici was binne minute op die toneel maar het Chantal dood verklaar. Volgens Hayes het Themba sterk na drank geruik toe hy uit sy motor gehaal is. “Daar was ook ’n oop blik Castle bier in sy voertuig wat oor sy skoene uitgeloop het.â€? Polisie het kort na die ongeluk ’n bloedmonster by Themba geneem. ’n Emosionele Louwrens Geldenhuys (snr) het Dinsdag gesĂŞ almal was verheug oor die troue. “Ons verdriet is nou net so grensloos as wat ons vreugde was.â€? Ds. Wynand Malan van die NG Kerk Florauna het gister gesĂŞ hy was erg geskok toe hy verlede Sondag, kort voor die erediens, van die ongeluk verneem het. “Dit is byna onwerklik om binne ’n week nadat ek ’n paartjie getrou het een van hulle te moet begrawe.â€? Chantal se begrafnisdiens word Maandag om 13:00 gehou.

RBT plans for North Stephané Bothma The north of Pretoria and the Moot area could soon have a brand new multimillion rand rapid bus transit (RBT) system - running from the south of Paul Kruger Street, through Capital Park, Eloffsdal, Wonderboom South to Wonderboom station and back. The Tshwane metro also plans to erect seven bus rapid transit stations on the median island between Pretoria CBD and Wonderboom station. Particulars of the proposed route, plans and reports are available for inspection and residents have the opportunity to lodge objections or make representations until 14 December. Should no objections be received, the metro plans to proceed with the implementation of the proposed route and construction of the proposed stations on 15 December. The seven stations would be erected on Paul Kruger Street between Francis Baard and Pretorius streets, between Struben and

Johannes Ramokhoase streets, immediately north of Boom Street, between Flowers and Van Heerden street in Capital Park, on Mansfield Road between Booysens and Eloff streets in Eloffsdal, on Mansfield Road between Van Rensburg and Green streets in Wonderboom South and a terminal at the Wonderboom station. The RBT system to the north was planned as the final trunk route to be known as Line 1A that would link the CBD with the Rainbow Junction in the north. “Tshwane Rapid Transit passengers can expect reduced travel times between home, work, retail and social destinations with improvements in traffic congestion and road safety. “The number of traffic accidents is likely to reduce and those that do occur will have less of an impact on traffic flow,” Tshwane communications manager, Nomasonto Ndlovu, told Rekord. “Some 154 buses would be procured for the system, which would feature dedicated bus lanes along trunk routes, stations at regular intervals and terminals at major transport interchanges,” Ndlovu added. Should the metro embark on the project, the construction of the first of three trunk routes would start on 15 December. It will join the CBD with Hatfield. The second route would lead to Atterbury Road while the final route will link the north.

Rioolprobleem teister inwoners vir ses jaar Ryno Ellis Dit het wel ses jaar geneem, maar die Tshwane-metro het uiteindelik ’n huishouding in Pretoria-Noord se probleem opgelos. Rou riool het telkens wanneer dit reën in hul agterplaas uitgestroom. Die Oppermans hoef nie meer paniekbevange te raak as hul sien dat die reënwolke opsteek nie en is baie verlig dat die metro die ergernis uiteindelik opgelos het wat die gesin se gesondheid erg in gevaar gestel het. Vir ses jaar het Marietjie Opperman se tuiste in Wolmer onder rioolwater beland na hewige reënbuie die riool by

’n drein langs Opperman se agterdeur laat uitborrel het. “Met swaar reën het riool, kondome, onderklere en babadoeke by ons agterdeur se drein uitgespoel,” vertel Opperman, wat na ses jaar al raadop was. Die gesin moes gereeld hul agterplaas skoonmaak van al die gemors wat uitgespoel het. Die riool was ook ’n gesondheidsgevaar en het die Opperman-gesin dikwels siek gemaak. “My man het infeksie in sy oog opgedoen en die hele familie het velsiektes gekry as gevolg van die riool.” Die reuk van die riool wat uitgespoel het, was uiteraard ondraaglik. Marnette Sutherland, wyksraadslid, het Opperman gehelp om die probleem op te los. Die metro het twee rioolpype tussen Opperman se huis en die veld aan die ooste van die erf geïnstalleer om te dien as noodoorloop indien die munisipale rioolnetwerk oorloop ten tye van swaar reën. Opperman sê nou dat die pype geïnstalleer is en die wolke pak saam, hoef hulle nie meer te bekommer oor riool wat hul huis gaan oorstroom nie. “As die drein nou oorloop, dan gaan dit reguit by die rioolpyp in en word dan na die veld langsaan weggelei. Dit is wonderlik om nou by jou agterdeur uit te kom en nie ander se gemors hoef skoon te maak nie,” vertel ’n verligte Opperman.

AfriForum plaas plaasmoorde in die kollig Natashia Slabbert Plaasmoorde raak álmal. So meen besorgde Afrikaners wat Saterdag in die Pretoriase middestad teen plaasmoorde protesteer het.

Naasbestaandes van vermoorde boere en bekendes, insluitend Steve Hofmeyr, Adam Tas en Chris Chameleon, het Saterdag saam met AfriForum standpunt teen dié brutale moorde ingeneem. AfriForum het die protesoptog gereël, waartydens ’n memorandum aan die Minister van Polisie, Nathi Mathetwa, oorhandig is as deel van die Solidariteit-beweging se omvattende veldtog teen plaasmoorde. By die minister van polisie se kantoor is die memorandum oor ’n luidspreker voorgelees. Onder andere word geëis dat die regering plaasmoorde prioritiseer en spesialiseenhede skep om die moorde te voorkom en te beveg. ’n Emosionele Susan Nortjé, wie se suster Wilna, swaer Attie en driejarige dogtertjie, Willemien Potgieter, op hul Vrystaatse plaas op 1 Desember 2010 brutaal vermoor is, het die optog en Wikus van Rensburg, Gina Gouws en Riëtte Kok voel genoeg is genoeg nadat twee boere Vrydagoggend by hul plaas in Brits doodgeskiet is.

oorhandiging bygewoon. Volgens Ernst Roets, adjunkuitvoerende hoof van AfriForum, was die doel van die optog om bewusmaking te skep, ondersteuning aan die familie van slagoffers van plaasmoorde soos die Potgieters te betuig en sekere eise aan die regering deur middel van die memorandum te stel. “Ons wil ook hê dat die probleem met die statistieke aangespreek moet word. Die polisie weier om amptelike statistieke oor plaasmoorde bekend te maak.” Volgens Roets dui AfriForum se navorsing dat drie keer soveel plaasmoorde as gewone moorde in Suid-Afrika plaasvind en dat twee keer soveel boere as polisiemanne jaarliks vermoor word. “Boere word in groot getalle vermoor en selfs gemartel. Ten spyte hiervan weier die regering om te erken dat daar ’n krisis is, of om ’n gefokusde teenstrategie uit te werk. Daarom moet ons passiwiteit onder Suid-Afrikaners hokslaan. Hierdie getalle is verskriklik erg maar dit is veel erger om in die lig daarvan stil te bly en niks daaraan te doen nie.”

Onbekende man se liggaam nog nie uitgeken Ryno Ellis Die liggaam van ’n man tussen die ouderdom van 35 en 40 wat onlangs in ’n dam by die Wonderboom-lughawe gevind is, is steeds nie uitgeken nie. Nog geen nuwe inligting het na vore gekom om lig te werp op

die saak nie en die polisie doen ’n beroep op enigeen met inligting om hulle te kontak. Volgens Mirna von Benecke, woordvoerder van die Sinovillepolisie, is die liggaam omstreeks 22:00 op 20 November in ’n spruitjie naby die lughawe deur ’n verbyganger gevind en

aangemeld. “’n Verbyganger het ’n slegte reuk geruik en ondersoek gaan instel, waarop hy op die liggaam afgekom het. Dit wil voorkom of dit al vir drie tot vier dae in die spruit gelê het voor dit gevind is.” Die oorledene het geen identifikasie aan hom gehad nie.

Von Benecke het bevestig dat die liggaam bewyse van geweld toon, maar dat sy nie kan bevestig dit tot die man se dood bygedra het nie. “Alhoewel daar merke aan sy lyf sigbaar is, kan ons nie bevestig of dit die oorsaak van sy dood was nie.”

Sy sê verdere inligting, soos die identifikasie van die persoon en die oorsaak van sy dood, sal eers bevestig word sodra die nadoodse ondersoek afgehandel is. Von Benecke doen ’n beroep op enigeen wat enige inligting het om die Sinoville-polisiestasie by 012-543-8800 te bel.

Beertjie-projek kom tot suksesvolle einde Natalie Grobler Die Hanco’s TeddyCare-projek het na sowat drie maande tot ’n suksesvolle einde gekom. Na intensiewe veldtogte deur CrisisOnCall, Lifemed, Best Care-ambulansdienste en Radio Rippel het hulle sowat 8 540 teddiebere vir die projek ingesamel. Alhoewel hulle nie die 10 000 mylpaal behaal het nie, glo al die rolspelers dat die sowat 8 000 teddiebere ’n verskil in kinders se lewens sal maak. Dié vier organisasies het verlede Saterdag by die Kolonnade Retailpark die derduisende teddiebere aan Choc Childhood Cancer Foundation oorhandig. Hulle sal dit dan verder aan hul verskeie takke uitdeel. Frikkie Gous, woordvoerder van Lifemed het gesê dat hy dankbaar teenoor al die mense is wat gehelp het om die projek ’n sukses te maak. “Ons gaan die projek weer volgende jaar aanpak en ons gaan baie groot gaan.

ingesamel het. Dit was Hanco se droom om vir elke minderbevoorregte kind ’n beertjie te skenk en dus het dié vier organisasies besluit om Hanco se droom te laat voortleef.

Spesiale Kersparty vir kinders Ryno Ellis Die skep van goeie Kersfees-herinneringe was die hoofdoel van ’n middag van Kersvieringe saam met kinders van ’n informele nedersetting in Kameeldrift.

Beskuldigde dood tydens moordsaak Natashia Slabbert Die beskuldigde in ’n gesinsmoordtragedie wat groot opslae in die koerante gemaak het, is onlangs dood. Louis Venter, wat van moord aangekla is na hy vroeër vanjaar sy vrou en seun na bewering doodgeskiet het, is onlangs in die Kalafong-hospitaal dood. Dit volg na Venter sowat ’n maand gelede ’n erge beroerte gehad het waarna hy gedurende die daaropvolgende paar weke in en uit die hospitaal en gevangenis was. Venter het na bewering sy vrou, Meisie Venter en seun Innes, in Maart vanjaar by die gesin se huis in Dorandia doodgeskiet na ’n rusie glo laat die Sondagaand uitgebreek het. Volgens Pretoria-Noord-polisie se woordvoerder, konstabel Maanda Singo, het die tragedie plaasgevind nadat konflik aangaande die seun vermoedelik tussen die egpaar uitgebreek het. “Die polisie is ontbied na inwoners geweerskote gehoor het en met die polisie se aankoms by die toneel is die vuurwapen steeds in sy (Venter) se hande aangetref.” Die oorledene sou weer 23 November op twee aanklagtes van moord voor die hof moes verskyn. Die Pretoria-Noord-polisie se ondersoekspan het bevestig dat die saak voorgekom het en weer uitgestel is. “Omdat die beskuldigde dood is, moet die doodsertifikaat nou aan die hof voorgelê word. Die direkteur van openbare vervolging moet ook ingelig word waarna die saak as afgehandel beskou sal word.”

Opdraande pad lê vir kankerlyer en familie voor na verlamming Jongman wag op ingevoerde ventilator sodat sy grootouers hom kan huis toe neem Natashia Slabbert ’n Jongman wat ’n dapper stryd voer na ’n kankergewas hom verlam het, hoop om binnekort uit die hospitaal ontslaan te word. Dawie van Rooyen (23) van The Orchards is verlede jaar, enkele dae voor Kersfees, in die hospitaal opgeneem nadat hy onverwags inmekaar gesak het. Na ’n kankergewas uit sy nek verwyder is, was die oudleerling aan Hoërskool Overkruin ’n kwadrupleeg en het hy die

afgelope 12 maande in die waakeenheid van die Steve Biko Akademiese-hospitaal aangesterk. Volgens Van Rooyen se familie is daar egter niks meer wat dokters vir hom kan doen nie. “Ons is aangeraai om hom tuis te versorg waar hy in sy eie omgewing kan aansterk,” het Salome de Villiers, Van Rooyen se tante, aan Rekord vertel. ’n Opdraande pad lê egter vir Van Rooyen se grootouers voor wat onder-

neem het om hul kleinkind verder te versorg. Dié pensioenarisse gaan klippe kou om 24 uur hoë sorg in die vorm van twee verpleegsters asook die maandelikse huur van ’n ventilator te bekostig. Van Rooyen, wat volgens medici ’n lewensverwagting van slegs ’n paar jaar het, kan nie self asemhaal nie en mag dus nie ontslaan word voor hy nie sy eie longmasjien het nie. “Na soveel terugslae hou ons tans duim vas vir ’n ingevoerde ventilator wat ons dan maandeliks moet afbetaal, na ons by geen ander plek kon regkom nie. As alles goed verloop kan Dawie hierdie week huis toe kom,” het ’n emosionele De Villiers gesê. Ten spyte van die uitdagings en die bekommernis oor hoe sy grootouers en tante by die geldelike verpligtinge gaan uitkom, baklei Van Rooyen om positief te bly en hoop hy op ’n wonderwerk. “Hy werk nog deur die skok. Hy was ’n blakende gesonde jongman wat pas sy diploma ’n paar weke vantevore voltooi het voor hy uit die bloute inmekaargesak het. Ons kan nog nie die sin daarin sien nie, maar, nou ja, dit is nie ons wil nie. Dawie glo dat hy gesond gaan word en weer gaan loop en ons glo saam hom.” Van links is Hester van Rooyen, Dawie van Rooyen en Dawie se vriendin Mikhyla Gropp. Van Rooyen het by sy ouma Hester en oupa Jan grootgeword na sy pa sewe jaar gelede dood is.

Musicians perform for charity Ron Sibiya About 30 musicians from various parts of the country performed in one of the major free music festivals to raise money to assist disadvantaged people. The festival was held at Laerskool Saamspan in Mountain View on Saturday. In attendance was also American country music artist,

Greg Rau. The money raised during the day was handed over to Uncle Ben’s Den charity organisation. The events organiser, Sharon van Zyl, who is also one of the musicians, said she was deeply touched by the hard work Uncle Ben’s Den did for less privileged residents. “The charity organisation gives food to homeless people and this show would ensure that Uncle

Ben’s Den had enough money to celebrate Christmas this year.” Uncle Ben’s Den is situated in Hermanstad. It is also the home of elderly people and it looks after mentally and physically disabled individuals. It provides rehabilitation programmes for people who are addicted to drugs. Some of the money was given to Laerskool Saamspan to pay for its electricity.

OPINIE

our achievements and our failures in dealing with its continuing devastating impact. Over the past quarter of a century more than 25 million people have died as a result of HIV/Aids and today 40 million people live with HIV. One of the greatest challenges we face is the Aids related stigma and discrimination, which forms a real barrier to stop the expansion of this disease. The reality of Aids to South Africans was brought to light recently by a report on the projected shortage of teachers over the next five years in South Africa. According to the report, South Africa faces a shortage of up to 94 000 teachers by 2015. Among the many reasons for this projected shortage is the effects of Aids-related illnesses. The report released by the Education, Training and Development Practices, Seta, warns that HIV/Aids is already taking its toll on teacher numbers. Two hundred out of 500 SA National Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) members who volunteered for Aids tests between October 2007 and September 2008 tested HIV-positive. According to the report most of the 250 Sadtu members who died in Gauteng in 2007 died of Aids-related illnesses. The report also warns that we are entering a critical period where those who had been infected were now dying. Education is of paramount importance in the battle against HIV/Aids.

Eiendomsmark word al meer geteiken Me. Weber van Pretoria-Noord skryf: Daar is deesdae ’n nuwe tendens weens swak verkope in die eiendomsmark en banke wat toenemend strenger maatreëls met keuring van leningaansoekers ingestel het. Sogenaamde voornemende kopers doen hulleself as potensiële kopers met ’n goeie kredietrekord voor. Besit van eiendom word geneem en ’n koopkontrak onderhewig aan standaard voorwaardes, onder andere betaling van huur, lening en lewering van waarborge, word gesluit. Allerhande beloftes word gemaak oor betaling van huur tot dit by die daad kom. Dan word verskonings aangevoer dat die koopkontrak gebrekkig is en dat verkopers nie die kopers van dienste voorsien

nie. Die kopers verbreek dan eensydig bepalings van die koopkontrak en weier om te betaal. Hulle beroep hulle dan op die behuisingswet van 1988 en verklaar hulleself eenvoudig as plakkers. Intussen strek die vindingrykheid van sogenaamde kopers (plakkers) veel verder as net om gratis verblyf te bekom. Gratis krag en water is ook op die spyskaart. Hekke word deur die moderne plakkers met slotte gesluit sodat die regmatige eienaar geen toegang tot sy eiendom het nie. Intussen is my hande afgekap en bevind ek my in ’n doodloopstraat aangesien die Tshwane-metro nie antwoorde op my vrae kan verskaf nie. Brief verkort – Redaksie.

Gee pluimpie aan Telkom Mev. Mouton skryf: ’n Rukkie gelede het ons Telkom-landlyn skielik ophou werk. Ons het dit by Telkom Direct by Kolonnade Retail Park gaan rapporteer waar die personeel ons besonder goed behandel en ondersteun het. En kan u glo, later skakel Telkom ons en

vra of hulle ons kan kom besoek. ’n Halfuur later was die amptenaar by ons huis en binne tien minute is die probleem opgelos. Baie dankie Telkom vir uitstaande diens en vir ’n uitstaande amptenaar. Clarens, baie dankie, jy was puik. Mense wil altyd kla, in hierdie geval is dit lekker om ’n pluimpie te gee.

OPINION

Mense help nog ander Verligte moeder skryf: Ek en my dogter het onlangs by Ala Turka-restaurant in Irene Village vir haar 21e verjaardag, net ma en dogter, gaan uiteet. Die aand was ongelooflik spesiaal en toe ons ry het ons geen benul gehad op watter noot die aand sou eindig nie. Ongelukkig maak moeder die oordeelsfout en ry die Rietvleidampad, dit is mos korter en daar is een groot storm. My ou Polo van 14 jaar het my nog nooit in die steek gelaat langs die pad nie, maar ja, dit is toe mos net met hierdie reën en water, dat my kar besluit om tot die dood te hik en snik, op die hoek van Rietvleidamstraat en Delmasweg - nie ’n plek vir twee vroue om ongeveer 22:15 te gaan staan nie. Ek het probeer die motor uit die pad

stoot, stilletos, stywe rokkie en al. Toe ek weer sien, staan ’n onbekende man langs die motor, beduie allerhande dinge en ek weet nie waar hy vandaan gekom het. Gelukkig skrik hy vir my dreigement dat ek gaan skiet as hy nader kom. Nie twee sekondes daarna nie verdwyn hy in die lang grasse en daar stop my redding. ’n Man en vrou help my die motor uit die pad stoot en toe hulle hoor ek wag vir my versekering se nooddienste, besluit hul om saam te wag. Ek kan nie genoeg dankie sê vir hul noodbystand nie. Hulle het aanhoudend gebel en my op hoogte gehou en seker gemaak ek is veilig. My barmharmtige Samaritane het my motor aan die gang gekry en beloof om my te volg tot ek veilig by die huis is.

Confess your sins James 5:16 (AMP): Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offences, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed… Offences can be the cause of certain illnesses according to this scripture. Do you know anyone who wears an offence like a badge of honour? Could that person be you? Your offended heart can distract you from the true destiny of God’s call and plan for your life. Offended people seem to trust nobody except themselves and unknowingly they are offending God, because their fear of man causes them to distrust God. Isaiah 8:13 (AMP): The Lord of hosts—regard Him as holy and honour His holy name [by regarding Him as your only hope of safety], and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread [lest you offend Him by your fear of man and distrust of Him]. In society there is a saying, If it is to be, it is up to me. Actually you’re saying, I’ve got to be in control all the time and because you cannot put your trust in God, He cannot

Faith Nevil Norden

heal your offended heart or keep you from stumbling on your way to your destiny. An offence is like an old broken down fence that needs mending. The longer the fence lies on the ground untended, the more it deteriorates and grants access to undesirables. The same is true of an offence, which causes division between individuals. The longer an offence is allowed to linger and fester, the more the relationship deteriorates. One dangerous characteristic of an offence is that it is like a virus; it can spread to others and multiply in magnitude. I challenge you to deal with any offence you might have.

Gift suggestions for the festive season It is not always easy to choose the perfect gift for Christmas and for some people it might even be a nerve-wracking experience. That is why Rekord shopped till we dropped to ensure that none of our readers need to enter the festive season unprepared. Not only will readers find a variety of gift ideas that would soothe the gift seeking blues. Here are some gift-wrapping tips. Coloured tissue paper - tissue can make any gift seem more festive. Collect several colours to use when lining gift boxes, to cushion delicate

items, inside cello bags, or even to use as gift paper. Avoid buying a few sheets at a time, as these are particularly expensive. Order in bulk or browse paper warehouses. Making gift tags - craft and stationery stores have blank tags in a variety of shapes. You can also make your own tags in any size or shape using coloured paper or cardstock. Scalloped edge scissors will also help create pretty looking tags. Recycled greeting cards - cut off the fronts of beautiful holiday cards

and attach them to your gift using double-faced tape. The picture on the card will dress up your gift and add a bit of colour and style. Use a simple cording as ribbon. Wired ribbon - wired ribbons are widely available. Most offer beautiful colours of sheers with the convenience of wired edges. Making a package look gorgeous is a snap with wired ribbon. Trim the ends of the wired ribbon on a slant or in a V-shaped swallowtail cut. Gift bags - plain, coloured, with or without handles are terrific for

giving items that do not have a box or for gifts that include multiple items. Alternative gift papers - many people like the look of using home made wrapping paper. This can be done in brown craft paper, using comics as wrapping paper, origami papers for small gifts, wallpaper scraps, old scarves or even pieces of fabric. Curling ribbon - this inexpensive narrow ribbon can be curled with the blade of a knife or scissors. It can be somewhat of a fuss to use, but is colourful and fun for children’s gifts.

Dié robotikaklub beïndruk Die Robotikaklub, Techno-Kidz van Laerskool Stephanus Roos, neem elke jaar aan die First Lego League-kompetisie (FLL) deel. Laerskool Stephanus Roos se twee spanne, Men in Colour en Crazy Solutions, het weer vanjaar die beoordelaars met hul innoverende idees by dié kompetisie beïndruk. Die FLL is ’n internasionale robotika-spankompetisie vir kinders tussen die ouderdomme

van 9 en 14 jaar. Meer as 200 000 kinders uit 60 lande het vanjaar vir hierdie vooraanstaande kompetisie ingeskryf. Die FLL se 2012-tema was Senior Solutions en elke span moes die onderwerp van oudword ondersoek, bepaal hoe dit jou vermoë om jou leefstyl volhoubaar te hou, beïnvloed en ’n voorstel maak hoe om ’n bejaarde persoon se lewensgehalte te verbeter.

Die Men in Colour-span is voor van links Bertus Veldman, Marco Botha, agter is Chané van Zyl (afrigter), Justin Evans, Wehan Wolfaardt, Marchant Fourieen en André Badenhorst. (Links) Die Crazy Solutions-span is voor van links Lee Kunneke, Duncan Esterhuizen (middel) Nicky du Plessis (afrigter), Calvin Roos, Marianne van der Berg, Shelby Kriek, Anthony Marshall, Henco Coetzee, (agter) Rikus Pretorius.

Renate Myburg is onlangs gekies om aan ’n internasionale talentkompetisie in Amerika deel te neem. Dié graad 10-leerling aan Hoërskool Overkruin blink uit in sang, dans, drama en modelwerk. Sy het vroeër vanjaar aan die Dance Masters of South Africa se provinsiale danskompetisie deelgeneem waar sy drie goue medaljes gewen het en SuidAfrikaanse kleure verwerf het. Sy het later aan ’n nasionale talentkompetisie deelgeneem waar sy goue medaljes vir ballet en kontemporêre items gewen het. Sy is ook aangewys as een van die top tien dansers van die kompetisie waarna sy gekies is om aan die internasionale talentkompetisie in Orlando, Florida, van 1 tot 6 Januarie 2013 deel te neem.

Tristan Janse van Rensburg is onlangs tot die o.11 Northerns-krieketspan verkies. Die spanne neem van 1 tot 6 Desember aan die nasionale krieketweek in Secunda deel. Janse van Rensburg, ’n graad 5-leerling aan Laerskool Wonderboom, is dol oor krieket en het al as vyfjarige klubkrieket by Sinoville Krieketklub begin speel. Sy krieketheld is AB de Villiers en sy grootste droom is om eendag vir die Proteas te speel.

Help children stay safe during school holidays The school holidays have arrived and compared to the winter break, it is much easier to keep the children entertained. For parents who are unable to take time off from work or leave their children in the care of someone they trust, any school holiday brings with it the added stress of constantly wondering if your child is safe. Clive Humphrey, managing director of ADT Northern Region, has some general tips that parents can pass on to their children. He said it is important that parents make sure youngsters are aware that they need to keep all entry and exit doors locked and that no one is to enter the home without their permission.

“If parents have a home security system installed they should teach their children how to activate and de-activate it and how and when to use other security devices like panic buttons. I urge parents to make a list of important telephone numbers of their local emergency services and to keep it stored in an accessible area.” Humphrey said there are basic rules that parents could use to teach their children to follow if they are leaving home to walk to a friend’s house for a visit. “If parents usually drive their children to a friend who lives in the same neighbourhood, rather walk the route with them before they have to do it on their own.

Explain that it is better to walk a slightly longer route down familiar streets, where there is more activity, than taking shortcuts across fields or deserted areas.” He said parents should advise their children that if they do happen to find themselves in an unfamiliar street, they should look out for a police or security officer to help them and to never accept advice or a ride from a stranger. With shopping malls also far busier than usual during holidays, Humphrey said the risk of a child wandering away from their parents and becoming lost in the hustle and bustle is higher. In a bid to keep them safe he advised

that, as a general safety precaution, parents should help their children to memorise their name, surname, home address and a contact number for at least one parent. “Teach them that if they become separated from you they should immediately look for mall security and give them that information. If your child is readily able to give them these details, the time taken to track down a parent can be reduced dramatically.” Humphreys added that educating a child about personal safety is very important, especially when the possibility exists that their parents may not be able to be with them all the time.

New SUV offers sleek and elegant design The introduction of the Infiniti EX into the South African market offers a blend of sporty SUV design, luxurious appointment and powerful engines to provide an elegant and stylish offering in the compact SUV segment. With its crossover design style, which mixes the stance and poise of a compact SUV with coupe-like styling and proportions, the Infiniti EX has reinvented the way compact SUV’s look. With an advanced chassis, it also reinvigorates how they drive and with extensive standard specification the Infiniti EX proves to be a formidable competitor. Traditional 4x4 boxiness has been completely disregarded in the Infiniti EX’s design, where a sleek and elegant coupe has provided inspiration for the design. The EX’s driving character - refined athleticism - is accurately reflected by the long bonnet and sharply tapering roofline. The signature Infiniti double-arch grille has been blended seamlessly with the flowing contours and soft edges of the body,

and the complexly shaped xenon headlights are also an Infiniti signature. Chrome trim edging around the glasshouse reinforces the coupe look and provides a strong character line at the rear where the window kicks up to form a triangular C-pillar. Rear privacy glass and elegant 18-inch alloy wheels add to the sophistication, while LED taillights and an integrated spoiler distinguish the rear. Efficient aerodynamics have been achieved with the low roofline (the Infiniti EX has a drag coefficient of 0.33), which also aids in lowering the centre of gravity and boosts visual dynamism. A luxurious interior with fine quality and fittings brings with it a strong element of practicality as well, making the Infiniti EX a great all-rounder. Focus on the driver has been achieved thanks to a sculpted-out cockpit, and all Infiniti EX passengers enjoy sumptuous comfort with leather upholstery all-round (standard on GT and GT Premium models). Careful attention has been paid to ergo-

nomics too, allowing for relaxed and comfortable driving. Even with a full complement of passengers on board, the EX offers practical boot space, enhanced by a 45l under-floor storage compartment (on diesel

models). When it comes to carrying larger loads, the EX has a user-friendly trick up its sleeve: each portion of the split-folding rear seats can be remotely lowered or raised simply by pressing a button.

Employee rewarded Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA) human resources employee Liza Wilmot has won a prestigious accolade at the 56th gala convention of the HR industry’s professional body, the Institute for People Management (IPM). Wilmot, Volkswagen’s Production Academy manager, received the coveted Human Resources Business Partner of the Year award. With just four awards presented, including CEO of the year, HR director of the year and branch of the year, Wilmot beat other nominees from around the country who were interviewed by a panel of judges which included academics, HR gurus and politicians. Wilmot said although she was surprised to have made it all the way after being nominated by a colleague, the award was a reflection on her 23-strong team which focuses on training and growing employees on the company’s production plant in Uitenhage. The Production Academy falls under Volkswagen’s Learning Academy, which also covers the areas of leadership, technical, commercial and national sales. Since the inception of the Learning Academy in 2008, Wilmot’s team has helped Volkswagen to vastly improve its overall production positioning within the group globally. “We needed to take our training and

development to a new level,” said Wilmot. “To impact positively on the business, a new approach and learning solution was required to develop the right skills, competencies and behaviours.”

Countryman driving force behind brand

The all-new Ford Kuga will be available in South Africa early in the new year.

Ford Kuga confirmed for SA introduction Ford South Africa has confirmed that the all-new Ford Kuga will be available with a 1.6l EcoBoost petrol engine with six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and a 2.0l TDCi turbo diesel engine with PowerShift automatic transmission. Apart from fuel-efficient engines, the newest compact SUV to join the Ford family will combine striking design and functionality with a rewarding driving experience. Smart technologies like Ford’s voice activated in-car SYNC connectivity system will be available as standard, while features such as Active Park Assist will be available as options on certain models. Using the latest powertrain technologies such as EcoBoost and twin independent camshaft variable timing (Ti-VCT), Ford has given its newest SUV a range of engines that are capable of high power and high torque while consuming less fuel. The global EcoBoost technology also features turbocharging and directs injection so that the EcoBoost engines can rival the power and performance of a larger engine but at a fraction of the fuel consumption. Further aiding fuel efficiency is the Kuga’s sleeker design. The new model is almost 10% more aerodynamic than the outgoing model, while the Kuga’s Active Grille Shutter system further enhances fuel economy by reducing wind resistance. Kuga will also introduce a ‘smart’ AWD system that pre-emptively reassesses road conditions 20 times faster than it takes to blink an eye, readjusting the AWD power split to give the driver the best blend of handling and traction. A number of advanced safety technologies will also be available as options. Adaptive Cruise Control senses when traffic is slowing, and regulates the vehicle’s speed accordingly. When the traffic clears, it goes back to the vehicle’s pre-set speed. Among the customer-focused features being shown for the first time in South Africa on a Ford product is ‘open sesame’

- a hands-free automatic tailgate, allowing customers to open or close the rear tailgate by simply sweeping a foot under the rear bumper. Full details of the line-up, specifications and features will be released closer to the vehicle’s launch in 2013.

In the two years since its launch onto the world’s car markets, the Mini Countryman has developed into a driving force behind the continuing growth of the brand. The transfer of hallmark Mini qualities and values into a new vehicle segment has won over new target groups worldwide to the brand’s unmistakable style. Summer 2012 will see the British carmaker’s first model to offer all-wheel drive benefiting from an extensive round of modifications. Detailed refinements to the car’s design and the selection of materials available for the interior shine the spotlight even more brightly on a premium character none of the Mini Countryman’s rivals can match. The modifications designed for the Mini Countryman will be rolled out across all model variants from November 2012. The newly designed rings encircling the Centre Speedo and four air vents immediately stand out. They will now be presented across the board in the colour shade Carbon Black and also have an inner ring in highgloss black or – as part of the Chrome Line Interior option – in chrome. Both in standard trim and with options specified, the fresh appeal of the colours and materials adds further lustre to the high-quality character of the Mini Countryman interior. Newly designed door inserts also help

to enhance the car’s premium ambience, comfort and practicality. Remodelled door armrests provide even more comfortable support for the arms, and the controls for the electric windows are now also positioned in the door trim. A full control panel is integrated into the door armrest on the driver’s side. As well as changes to the range of interior colours, interior trim elements and Colour Lines, the selection of exterior paint finishes will also be given a refresh in summer 2012. Customers can choose from three petrol engine variants in South Africa for the Mini Countryman. All models can be ordered with a six-speed automatic gearbox as an alternative to the standard six-speed manual.

The most luxurious Chrysler flagship ever The all-new Chrysler 300C Luxury Series 3.0l V6 5spd is designed to be big on efficiency, refinement and power, made its South African debut in the new Jeep Grand Cherokee earlier this year. Built by VM Motori and developed by Fiat Powertrain, this engine is a new design employing Fiat’s latest MultiJet 2 technology to help reduce fuel consumption, emissions and noise while yielding world class pulling power. The 176kW unit produces a healthy 550Nm of torque, peaking between 1 600 and 2 800rpm for effortless progress. A single variable geometry Garrett VGT 2056 turbocharger with inter-cooler ensures the engine is smooth and responsive at all speeds and yields a 0-100km/h time of 7,4sec and a top speed of 230km/h. The efficient engine can return 7,2l/ 100km on the Combined Cycle and emits 191g/km of CO2. With a capacity of 2 987cc, the engine has a 60-degree V angle giving compact dimensions of just 695mm long, 729mm wide and 698mm high.

A graphite cast iron block with aluminium cylinder heads and a structural aluminium oil sump in two elements help contribute to a total engine weight of 230kg. The sump has been designed like this to increase the rigidity of the engine for improved quietness. Noise is reduced further thanks to a new crankcase that gives the forged steel crankshaft rigid support to help limit vibrations. Matched to the diesel engine is a five-speed automatic transmission. The tried and tested W5A580 has both full automatic and semiautomatic functions. As with a traditional automatic, once ‘drive’ has been selected the gearbox can be left to do its own thing. For drivers who want more involvement, the steering wheel mounted paddles are standard. A transmission controller is calibrated to prevent the engine over-revving while an adaptive electronic control increases engine responsiveness. The all-new Chrysler 300C Luxury Series is the most highly appointed sedan the brand has ever offered. Exclusive inte-

rior features found on the Chrysler 300C Luxury Series sedan includes either Black or Mochachino Poltrona Frau® ‘Foligno’ leather-wrapped instrument panel, cluster brow, centre console side panels and upper front and rear door panels. Premium Nappa leather covers the door armrest, bolster and centre console armrest. Completing the interior environment is specially selected natural pore mocha wood trim featuring a matte finish to enhance the beauty of the real wood. The new 2012 Chrysler 300C’s Uconnect Touch system has been upgraded for 2012, adding hands free texting, voice commands for Garmin navigation and more iPod® control features to expand on the system’s world-class infotainment, connectivity and convenience technologies. With the segment’s largest touchscreen display (8.4-inch), the easy to use Uconnect Touch 8.4N with integrated Garmin® navigation is even better with the addition of voice recognition. The Uconnect Touch 8.4N enables

Chrysler 300C passengers to input street addresses and navigate to points of interest. The new Chrysler 300C is one of the safest cars on the road, with a host of standard equipment that ensures driver and passengers travel in maximum security. To guarantee this, the 300C were tested in a variety of accidents including front and side impacts, roll over, pile up and fire. Different impact speeds, different types of obstacle and the different physical characteristics of passengers were also taken into account. The result is a car that combines the latest in active and passive safety devices with one of the safest structures on the road. Standard equipment includes a powerful braking system allied to some of the most sophisticated electronic driver aids available today. High performance brake pads have been designed to give regular, fade-free performance. Vibration dampening springs make the callipers more efficient and there’s a hydraulic pressure compensation system that intervenes by activating the ABS pump to the maximum if it detects a fault in the brake servo. Ready Alert Braking can predict if the driver is starting emergency braking and uses the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) pump to move the brake pads closer to the rotors and reduce the time for the brakes to be applied. The new Chrysler 300C was named Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), achieving their highest rating. IIHS recognises vehicles with outstanding crashworthiness in front, side, rollover and rear crashes. The new Chrysler flagship received ‘good’ ratings, in all four categories. The retail prices are as follows: - Chrysler 300C Luxury Series 3.0l V6 8spd: R479 990. - Chrysler 300C Luxury Series 3.0l V6 5spd: R539 990.

 Still no real recovery It has been five tough years for the property market and there is still no real recovery on the horizon for 2013. This was the recent opinion of Seeff chairman, Samuel Seeff. He said the property industry had hoped they would start seeing a return to more normalised, traditional conditions this year, but it seems they will have to wait a bit longer before they break out in the property party cheer. On the up side though, there have been some encouraging signs and a little more energy in the market this year, but Seeff said that continued uncertainty, low economic and job growth, high household debt levels and constrained mortgage granting are just simply weighing too heavily on the market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have seen some excellent growth this year with our turnover up by close to 20%, predominantly in the primary residential sector, but the increased demand in the market has, on the whole, not really translated into any noteworthy increase in transaction volumes and prices,â&#x20AC;? said Seeff. Sluggish economic fundamentals combined with low levels of mortgage credit granting are dampening movement in the market, he said. If we look at latest data for example, we still see a first decline rate of about half of all bond applications. What the increased demand is however doing, is helping to clear some of the oversupply of stock out of the market, an essential activity to pave the way for new stock to come onto the market. On the whole though, Seeff predicts a flat market with only sideways movement for 2013.

It remains business as usual in the affordable housing sector below R1,5-million with more robust buyers encouraged largely by the low interest rate which is expected to continue next year. The affordable housing sector is likely to see the bulk of demand and movement, much the same as this year, however, buyers can expect the tight mortgage lending criteria and deposit requirements to persist. There is likely to be little real movement in the volume of mortgage loans granted next year. Given the constrained economic conditions, the trend towards downscaling and off-loading secondary properties, especially in the coastal markets and in luxury golf and coastal estates is likely to continue. It is also anticipated that demand for rental properties will persist, but there is unlikely to be any significant up-tick in rental yields. Prices will remain flat with only marginal growth in the lower and middle-income sectors of the market where demand is most robust. Given that no significant progress has been made to clear the distressed stock out of the market, this will continue to impede normal demand and supply and trading conditions. It is imperative that some progress is made on these in the early part of next year. On the whole, provided that the economy remains stable, we are unlikely to see any significant movement in interest rates and market conditions will remain heavily weighted in favour of buyers.

Impeccable townhouse with low maintenance This impeccable townhouse in Highveld is low maintenance and situated in an upper class complex with excellent security, close to the N1, N14 freeways and Centurion CBD and it is for sale for R1 280 000.

Urgent last call for tax-free transfers The tax-free transfer created by Sars only applies until 30 December 2012 Property owners now only have less than one month left to set in motion the tax-free transfer of any residential properties they currently hold in legal entities such as companies, close corporations and trusts into their own names. Berry Everitt, MD of the Chas Everitt International property group recently warned owners that after 31 December 2012, they will be liable for the usual transfer duty and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on any such transfer. The current tax-free window, created by the SA Revenue Service (Sars) in 2010, applies to all residential properties that have been mainly used for residential purposes since February 2009. It thus includes holiday homes and homes owned by foreigners, who only live in SA part of the time but not, for example, residential properties that have been converted to office use. The legislation enabling the tax-free transfers also provides that the individual to whom the property will be transferred must already be ‘connected’ to it in some way. In other words, they must be a member of the close corporation that owns the property, a shareholder of the company that owns it, a beneficiary of the trust that holds it, or an immediate relative of any of these people. “In by far the majority of cases,

it will really benefit those individuals financially to take advantage of this tax-free concession period,” Everitt said. Since December 2002, he explains, Sars has held that the sale of a legal entity which owns immovable property is actually deemed to be the sale of that immovable property, and that the purchaser has to pay transfer duty. So there is now no advantage at all for a buyer in acquiring a legal entity instead of buying the property directly. As far as the property seller is concerned, it should be noted that a company, close corporation or trust does not have the advantage that an individual has of being exempted from paying Capital Gains Tax on the first R2-million worth of capital gains on a primary residence. What is more, companies and close corporations pay Capital Gains Tax at a higher rate than individuals and have to pay Dividend Tax at 15% when monies are distributed to shareholders or members. In short, Sars has provided a golden opportunity for many taxpayers to restructure their affairs and reduce their tax liability as it relates to the ownership of property and they should be sure to seek professional advice as soon as possible and put the necessary transfers in motion before the end of December.

Pretoria se oopwater swemkampioen, Tyron Venter, in aksie. (Regs) Venter is â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n man wat hou van uitdagings. Hoe moeiliker, hoe lekkerder.

Swemkampioen verbeter rekords Koos Venter Toeriste wat al die roete tussen die Kaapse hawe en Robbeneiland aangepak het wĂŠĂŠt dat die see in daardie gebied nie net rof kan raak nie, maar ook ysig koud is. Dit is ook bekend dat heelwat swemmers al die sowat 8km tussen die eiland en Bloubergstrand aangepak het en dat net die dapperstes diĂŠ roete met hul eerste probeerslag kon voltooi. Vir die 26-jarige Tyron Venter, oopwaterswemkampioen van Pretoria, is die roete tussen Robbeneiland en die vasteland egter nie meer â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n uitdaging nie. Hy doen dit sommer twee, of selfs drie keer heen en weer. Trouens, Venter het enkele maande gelede beide die rekords vir die dubbel (twee keer tussen die eiland en die vasteland) en die driedubbel (drie keer die roete) verbeter. Dit is egter nie waar dit stop nie. In September vanjaar het hy ook die eerste persoon geword wat dit kon regkry om twee keer rondom Robbeneiland te swem in een poging. Eers het hy diĂŠ sowat 12km in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n tyd van 02:37 afgelĂŞ, net om voort te gaan vir â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n tweede rondte. Hy het die twee rondtes saam in 06:27 geswem. Vir die oningeligte persoon mag hierdie prestasies dalk nie klink na iets besonders nie. Dit moet egter ook genoem word dat Venter die rekordpogings telkens aangepak het in slegs sy swembroek, sonder die beskerming van â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n spesiale swempak. Hy word wel bygestaan deur â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n span in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n boot, maar al wat hulle vir hom mag doen is om eet- en drinkgoed aan te gee en sy tyd dop te hou. Venter vertel dat hy vir energie spesiale drankies drink of fyngemaalde piesangs eet. Dit doen hy deur vir â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n paar minute tydens die swempoging op sy rug te dryf, terwyl hy die nodige versterkings inneem. Dit bly egter â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n gevaarlike sport en volgens Venter moet die deelnemer psigologies selfs sterker en fikser wees as wat die geval met sy fisieke toestand is. Dit is nie elke Jan Rap en sy

maat wat byna sewe ure sal kan oorleef in water kouer as 15°C, terwyl jy jou liggaam tot die uiterste dryf nie. Dan is daar nog die gevare, veral in die see, van rotse, golwe, jellievisse, robbe en wat nog alles. Maar vir diĂŠ swemafrigter en verteenwoordiger van â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n groot swemdragvervaardiger, wat deesdae in Fairy Glen in Pretoria woon, was â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n uitdaging nog altyd onweerstaanbaar. Hoe moeiliker, hoe lekkerder. Waar het dit alles begin? Venter vertel dat hy nog altyd â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n avontuurlstige mens met â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n passie vir sport was. Gholf en binnenshuise krieket is sy ander gunstelinge, maar dit was in swem waarin hy van jongs af uitgeblink het sedert hy as 10-jarige ernstig aan diĂŠ sport begin deelneem het. Hy het herhaaldelik Proteakleure as swemmer, beide in die swembad en as oopwaterswemmer verwerf. Dit is egter as oopwaterswemmer waarin hy die grootste sukses behaal het en hy is reeds tien jaar lank al die Suid-Afrikaanse kampioen en ook nasionale rekordhouer in die 25km-item. Hy het verskeie titels in diĂŠ sport op sy kerfstok en word oral erken as SuidAfrika se beste oopwaterswemmer. Hoewel hy dit geniet om in kanale en damme te swem, bly die see vir hom die beste uitdaging. Hy het die jaarlikse kompetisie tussen Robbeneiland en Bloubergstrand al vyf keer gewen. Noudat hy die Robbeneiland-roete duidelik getem het, wat is volgende? Venter het aan Rekord gesĂŞ dat hy volgende jaar wil probeer om die 35km tussen Simonstad en Rooiels ook in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n rekordtyd te swem. Dan wag daar die groot uitdaging - die 100km rondom die Kaapse skiereiland. Hy wil diĂŠ roete van die Waterfront in Kaapstad tot by Valsbaai ook volgende jaar aandurf. As hy dĂĄĂĄr klaar is, wag die res van die wĂŞreld en Venter lek reeds sy lippe af vir die roete om Rottnest-eiland in AustraliĂŤ en natuurlik ook Manhattaneiland in New York.

Plaaslike speler wen tennis ope Koos Venter

Tucker Vorster van Pretoria in aksie in die onlangse nasionale Suid-Afrikaanse Ope toernooi by die Groenkloof-tenniskompleks. Foto: GB Jordaan

Tucker Vorster van Pretoria het verlede week die nasionale Suid-Afrikaanse Ope tennistoernooi in Groenkloof gewen. Hy het Brendan Zackay in die eindstryd met 6-1, 6-1 verslaan. In die proses het hy ’n sogenaamde wild card vir volgende jaar se Soweto Ope losgeslaan. Vorster het reeds in sy dae as junior speler opgang gemaak toe hy deur die bekende Gerrie Dippenaar van Pretoria afgerig is. Dippenaar was ook die afrigter van ander bekende spelers soos Rick de Voest, Izak van der Merwe, Jeff Coetzee, Louis Vosloo (afrigter van Kevin Anderson) en Wesley Whitehouse (voormalige junior Wimbledon kampioen) asook Surina de Beer (voormalige junior wêreld nommer een). Nadat Vorster in 2006 Suid-

Afrika se top junior was toe hy die Suid-Afrikaanse junior kampioenskap gewen het, is hy Amerika toe, waar hy met ’n tennisbeurs aan die Ole University in Missisippi gestudeer het. Hy het vanjaar sy graad in sportsielkunde aan dié universiteit verwerf. Hy speel tans in ’n ITF-toernooi in Zimbabwe, waarna twee ITF-toernooie sal volg in Potchefstroom waar hy wêreldranglyspunte (ATP) kan verdien. Volgens Dippenaar lê daar ’n blink toekoms voor vir die 24jarige Vorster. Dippenaar sê sy spel het min swakplekke, maar hy is veral sterk as sogenaamde ‘dien en vlughou’-speler, wat ’n mens sterk herinner aan die bekende Pat Rafter van Australië. Dippenaar het aan Rekord gesê Vorster se sterkpunt is tans sy sielkundige taaiheid en sy honger vir sukses in die tenniswêreld.

Klub hou funksie vir slotte Koos Venter Die Blou Bulle is vir dekades lank al bekend as die slotfabriek van Suid-Afrika. Sewe van die tien Springbokke wat die meeste toetse in die slotposisie vir Suid-Afrika gesak het, was Blou Bulle, terwyl ’n volle 27 (meer as ’n derde) uit die 80 slotte wat oor die afgelope eeu in ’n Springboktrui gespeel het, op een of ander stadium in hul loopbaan ook vir die Bulle gespeel het. Die Pretoria Polisie-rugbyklub het oor die jare weer ’n horde slotte, waarvan ’n hele paar Springbokke geword het, vir die Blou Bulle opgelewer. Dink maar aan harde manne soos Adri Geldenhuys en Johan Ackerman. Om hierdie rede het die oudBloubul agtsteman en veteraan administrateur van die Pretoria Polisie, Katmuis Conradie, besluit om dié klub se jaarlikse rugbyfunksie ‘die dag van die slotte’ te noem. Geldenhuys was juis een van

’n Paar legendes van die Polisie-rugbyklub was teenwoordig by die onlangse funksie. Voor sit kol. Katmuis Conradie en generaals Mike Geldenhuys en Ben Alberts. In die middelry is Willie Kahts, Schibel O’Reilly, Jack Conradie, Piet Steyn, Dave Pretorius, Kobus Muller en Chris Oosthuizen. Agter is Adri Geldenhuys, Chris Oosthuizen, André Skinner en Toy Dannhauser.

die gaste by die funksie. Ander bekende oudprovinsiale slotte was André Skinner en Toy Dannhauser. Verskeie oudspelers van die Polisie-rugbyklub, wat heelwat slotte inge-sluit het, was teenwoordig by dié funksie wat by die Bosveld Lapa, oud-Bloubul Willie Kahts se kuierplek langs Hoërskool Langen-

hoven, aangebied is. Daar is heerlik gekuier en stories oor die goeie ou rugbydae is weer opgediep. Dit was duidelik dat die meeste slotte, soos vandag nog, deur die jare altyd maar moeilike manne was wat nie op die rugbyveld verkeerd opgevryf moes word nie.

Mixed team crowned champs Spirits were high at Oak Valley (Elgin) recently where an impressive field of mountain bikers gathered for the third and final stage of the 2012 Contego Wines2Whales MTB Race powered by Maserati. Team USN Inov-8’s Carla van Huyssteen and Philip Buys from Pretoria claimed their second stage win for the weekend and the title of 2012 champions in the mixed team category with a combined finishing time of 10:24:39. According to Van Huyssteen stage three was tough, but fun. “For most of the day Philip Carla van Huyssteen and Philip Buys claimed the title of 2012 champions in the mixed team category in the 2012 Contego Wines2Whales MTB Race. Here Buys is giving Van Huyssteen a helping hand on the day. Photo: Cherie Vale

and I would make up time on the single track, only to be caught by Yolande de Villiers and Johan Labuschagne on the open flat sections. “They are really strong on the road. That’s the one section where Philip really had to help me on. “We managed to pull away at approximately the 55km mark and then maintained our lead. The Wines2Whales was a lot of fun. It was great seeing the intense battle between the women’s teams and the competition was really strong. This was my first three-day MTB race and it was awesome, from the organisation to the routes. You can see that much effort went into staging this race,” said Van Huyssteen. Team J&Y were placed second after three days of racing, with Team Gogo and Gramps claiming the final spot on the podium.

Titans moet nóú wen Koos Venter Met al die spanne in die Momentum-eendagreeks wat slegs een wedstryd oor het om te speel, is dit net die Warriors van die Oos-Kaap wat glad nie meer die halfeindrondte kan haal nie. Dit beteken natuurlik ook dat die Nashua Titans hul laaste ligawedstryd teen die Cape Cobras, wat in die Paarl gespeel sal word, móét wen as hulle nog vir ’n tuis

halfeindrondte wil kwalifiseer. Hulle sal inderwaarheid die wedstryd ook moet wen om te verseker dat hulle enigsins nog ’n sê in die reeks kan hê, aangesien die Dolphins en die Knights in hul nekke blaas op soek na ’n plek in die halfeindrondte. Die Titans het sake vir hulself moeilik gemaak toe hulle Vrydagaand in ’n spannende wedstryd teen die Dolphins in Centurion met twee lopies verloor het. Dié wedstryd het dramaties geëindig toe die Titans net-net nie daarin kon slaag om sewe lopies in die laaste boulbeurt te kry nie, terwyl hulle net een paaltjie staande gehad het. Die Dolphins het 264 lopies in hul toegelate 50 boulbeurte aangeteken en hulle is goed in toom gehou, veral

deur puik boulwerk van Albie Morkel, wat uiteindelik drie paaltjies ingeoes het. Aanvanklik het dit gelyk of die Titans hierdie teiken op ’n drafstap gaan verbysteek, maar ongelukkig het die res van die top kolwers gesukkel om ordentlike vennootskappe met Henry Davids te behaal. Davids het sy paaltjie eers ná ’n persoonlike bydrae van 76 met 179 lopies op die telbord verloor. Eers toe David Wiese en Eden Links die agtste paaltjie verdedig het, was daar weer ’n ordentlike vennootskap wat die Titans se beurt op die wenpad kon kry. Ongelukkig het Wiese sy paaltjie net te vroeg verloor om wéér ’n wedstryd vir sy span te wen en Links kon die wa nie saam met Rowan

Richards om die tiende paaltjie deur die drif kry nie. Die Titans het egter een laaste kans gekry om nog tweede in die ligafase te eindig toe die wedstryd tussen die Knights en die Cape Cobras die naweek uitgereën het. Hulle sal egter Woensdag, wanneer al die spanne in hul laaste rondte wedstryde speel, die Cobras in die Kaap moet klop om ’n tuis halfeindrondte te verseker. Die Knights, wat teen die Highveld Lions in Kimberley speel en die Dolphins, wat die Warriors in Oos-Londen pak, blaas egter albei in die Titans se nekke en enigeen van dié twee kan die manne van Centurion nog verbysteek as hulle teen die Cobras verloor.

Die Titans se opkomende veelsydige ster, David Wiese, het weer sy puik vorm gewys toe hy Vrydagaand teen die Dolphins op nommer sewe gaan kolf het en 71 lopies van net 49 balle gemoker het.

Albie Morkel se puik boulwerk teen die Dolphins verlede Vrydagaand was ’n doring in die vlees van die Natallers. Dit het ook weer gewys waarom die bestuur by die Titans Morkel as een van hul waardevolste spelers beskou en hom nie wil toelaat om in Januarie in die Big Bash-toernooi in Australië te gaan speel nie.
