2016 Wrap-Up

Dear Fellow Bushcrafters,

Firstly, we would like to congratulate Jacques Gerber for winning our knife competition!  We are hoping to have another one next year as well.

We are aware of the fact that this time of the year always creates a lot of stress and pressure for everyone and, have decided that we will not do anymore workshops in 2016.

Our aim is to start 2017 afresh with an Introductory Workshop toward the end of January and will let you know dates a little closer to the time.  We have a basic “curriculum” of sorts, derived from the questionnaires that were filled in at our very first Workshop and we will be presenting it to participants in January as a basic outline of what to expect in the coming year.

We are going camping from 19 – 29 December for a good dose of bushcraft and all that is wholesome and good in the outdoors.  We hope that you are also planning something similar and getting your feet dirty at least for a little while during the festive season!  We wish all our readers and participants a blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

Capricorn Park Open Fishing Day

We participated in the Capricorn Business Park Fishing Open Day on Saturday 28 November 2015.

The drive behind this was to try to eradicate the alien species in the natural wetlands, and to record and release any indigenous species that were caught.

It was a fantastic day of fishing, and the only fish to be caught were the invasive carp species that have had a population explosion.

We are hoping this might prompt them to organize more of these events through the year!
