Letter from Tammy Hancock (Clarens Tourism Forum)

Hello Folks

The time has come for the next Combined Clarens Community Braai Challenge.

Following on the success of the inaugural braai challenge at the end of

September 2013, it was decided to host these ‘events’ bi-annually and the

time is here!!!

DATE:  9 MARCH 2014

TIME:  14h00 – 18h00


To refresh your memories, here’s how the 1st one was launched:

Hi Everyone!

I am assisting the various Clarens forums in arranging a community braai-off

and would appreciate a moment of your time to read what it’s about in the

hope that you can participate!

Our village is fortunate that it is inhabited by peoples of all walks of

life, black and white, young and old, rich and poor.  To celebrate our

diverse cultural heritage, the Clarens Tourism Forum (CTF), the Clarens

Conservancy  together with the Clarens Fire Association (CFA) and the

Clarens Rate Payers Association (RPA) would like to host a Community

Braai-Off in order to further build our community and to benefit the

charities that are so dependent on funding.

The idea is that the various communities from all over Clarens gets a braai

team together; therefore we will see a team from e.g. CTF, Zama-Zama Tavern,

Protea Hotel, Artist Café, the residents of Swart Street, the school, set up

a braai area on a cordoned-off area of the village Square for that team and

braai chops with pap-en-sous with a side dish for 10 people.   It should

cost each team less than R500. The best overall team, best chop,

pap-ens-sous and side dish of the day will be judged by surprise

celebrities. Plates of food will be sold to local residents and visitors for

at least R30 per plate with the proceeds being donated to charities.  The

entrance fee of R100 per team will be donated by the winning team to a

Clarens charity of their choice.  The proceeds from the sale of the plates

will be divided into three and the winners of the other categories will

donate that to their charities.

You could even enter a complex (e.g. the Rosemary centre) or a street!

Business could also challenge each other!

We hope to get lots of fun prizes from business and these will be given to

various categories, e.g. best dressed team, team with the most spirit, first

team to serve, etc.

The braai-off is scheduled to commence at 14h00 and be completed by 18h00.

However, I hope that I have given you sufficient information and would

really appreciate it if you could let me know ASAP whether you can enter a

team and join a fun event in aid of charity and community. Even if you can’t

– please let me know so that I know where we stand.





SO, the same format, rules, etc., only this one’s theme is ‘SUMMER SIZZLER’

interpret that as you like – dress-up, make-up and cook-up. There’ll be

judges, prizes, auctions and plenty of fun fun fun!! Enter your teams and

don’t forget to challenge your ‘rivals’!

Entry forms at Clarens Brewery, Old Stone Bottle Store, Clarens Xtreme or

contact Natalie 0829014700 or Tammy 0828249365.
