5 NOVEMBER 2011
In 2010 het Krugersdorpers en omliggende gemeenskappe die geboorte van die La’t Wiel Fees gesien. Die fees was die droom van ‘n paar mense, wat ‘n geleentheid wou skep om geld in te samel vir Laerskool Ebenhaeser. Die fondse is aangewend vir die beveiliging van die skool, asook ander projekte wat die skool het, onder andere die voedselskema. Terselfdertyd wou hul ook ‘n geleentheid skep vir die gemeenskap om te sosialiseer en om ‘n bietjie pret te hê. Daarom hoop ons as feeskomitee om die La’t Wiel Fees ‘n jaarlikse instelling te maak, om dit van krag tot krag te laat groei. Die 2010 La’t Wiel Fees was ‘n groot sukses, maar die 2011 fees belowe om nog groter te wees. Hierdie jaar se fees sluit die volgende in:
· Verskeie kunstenaars
· Mini mallemeule
· Mini vlooimark
· Eg Afrikaanse disse
· Pretdraf 4km & 6 km
· Motor en motorfietsskou
Moenie die 2011 La’t Wiel Fees op 5 November misloop nie – dit beloof om ‘n onvergeetlike gebeurtenis te wees!
CENTENARY GOODWILL RUN
Since last year I played with the idea to start an event where old car enthusiasts can be involved in giving something back to the community.
At the beginning of this year my wife Bollie Pienaar and myself discussed it with our Chairman Mr Evert Louw. This thought became a reality after meeting with the management of the President Hyper in Krugersdorp and it was decided that the Centenary Car Club hold an event called the “Goodwill Run” at their premises, where anyone and everyone could offer blankets and/or unspoiled food items, and in turn we would donate this to a worthy cause. We decided that this run would also include a motor show so that everybody in the community would get an opportunity to view some classic vehicles, some dating back to 1928.
The “Centenary Goodwill Run” was born on the 10th of July 2011. For a first time ever event like this, the club had an excellent turnout and we believe it will be a huge success every year. Everyone enjoyed the day tremendously, and everybody spoke well about the success of the event. Although we had anticipated a turnout of 100 old cars, we were amazed that the actual number was 203.
We believe that everyone who attended the “Centenary Goodwill Run” on Sunday will definitely join us again next year and we look forward to adding to the number of old cars at next year’s event.

The Centenary Car Club recently donated a trailer-full of blankets and non-perishable foods to the West Rand Association for Persons with Disabilities (WRAPD).
The collection was gathered at an event held at President Square, entitled the Centenary Goodwill Run. After meeting with the management of the President Hyper in Krugersdorp, the club decided that it would hold the event at their premises, so that anyone and everyone could offer blankets and/ or unspoiled food items that would then be donated to a worthy cause.
“We decided that this run would also include a motor show, so that everybody in the community would get an opportunity to view some classic vehicles, some dating back to 1928,” says committee member Herman Pienaar.
Janette Scheepers from the WRAPD thanked the organisation for the generous donation. “Thanks, thanks, thanks! We were just adding blankets to our wish list, and now we have received some. We are very grateful,” says Scheepers.
The WRAPD is in need of clothing and bedding, and any donations of these would be appreciated.

2011 KZN MEANDER
Friday the 13th was the start of the annual KZN Meander rally for a few motor vehicle enthusiasts, previously known as the “Durban Dash”. Luckily this day had no other significant meaning to us, like being superstitious and not attending.
The day started very early and drivers met at the Total Petroport, just outside Heidelberg Gauteng. All the participants were in good spirits and everyone admired the vehicles.
After a quick breakfast the journey started in all seriousness with Jakes Jacobs (Vice Chairman) setting the participants off with a 2 minute interval. Every driver’s assistant was given a list of instructions together with a questionnaire to be completed to make the trip a bit more interesting for the long planned route to Cars in the Park, Pietermaritzburg.
The first stop was Bethlehem where the cars were refuelled, and some leg stretching was much appreciated. From there the route to Clarens and the Golden Gate was undertaken to arrive in Clarens in time for lunch.
Everyone had the opportunity to book into the Protea hotel in Clarens where we would spend the night. The afternoon was to the leisure of each individual and/or groups.
Saturday morning was another early rise and shine with temperatures dropping very low. We knew that winter was here to stay. After breakfast we went for a tour around the town square, to show off our magnificent vehicles to the inhabitants and visitors of Clarens.
At around 09h30 the road to Midlands, via the Golden Gate, was tackled and numerous stops were made to admire the beauty of the countryside and take some pictures. With spirits still high and everyone enjoying the trip, the rally made a “pit stop” at the Green Lantern, just in time for some welcomed refreshments. Up to this point nobody experienced any problems with their vehicles.
A prize was awarded to Magda van Rensburg who correctly completed the questionnaire that was handed out at the beginning of the rally.
Magda van Rensburg – Questionnaire winner
Dick Kotze – 1st Prize winner 1971 Ford Mustang
Schalk Burger – 2nd Prize winner Mini Cooper S
Hélène de Villiers – 3rd Prize winner 1961 Vauxhall Velox
