Registration starts from 10 o’clock, Friday. Hunters book in, meet new friends and enjoy lunch (own expense). Shooting in of rifles is arranged before and after lunch and will take place on Soon Cloete’s farm.
The weekend starts with a guinea fowl shoot on Friday afternoon. Hunters and guides depart at 14:00. Hunters will be allocated to farms.
Omdat baie van die jagters reeds Donderdag arriveer, het ons besluit om ‘n braai te hou Donderdagaand – dit blyk nogal gewild te wees en ons beplan om dit weer volgende jaar te hou. So, vir al die vroegkommers – Donderdagaand kuier ons lekker saam! Alle vrouens, kinders, familie en vriende van jagters is welkom (ete en toegang is gratis). Kontantkroeg beskikbaar.
On Friday night a steak evening will be held at the Lady Grey Country Club. The families of the hunters are welcome to attend (at their own expense). Hunters and guides will be formally introduced to each other and have the chance to make arrangements for the next mornings hunt. Jagters sal met hierdie geleentheid dan ook die name van hul gidse trek. Hier kry jagters kans om hul strategie met gidse te bespreek en vrae te stel.
The hunt begins on Saturday morning at 06:00. Your guide will accompany you. The hunter must shoot a mountain reedbuck ram (rooiribbokram), greywing (francolin), as well as catch a trout in a river (in any order), all within 12 hours. The hunter will decide in what order he will do his MacNab. Hunters must report promptly at 18:00 at the Lady Grey Country Club (see rules below).
The horns of the buck will be measured and the fish weighed on your return to the Country Club. All participants who compete in the MacNab must report to the Country Club with their quary – MacNab or not.
A Scottish evening, including dinner and dance, will be held on Saturday evening. The hunter and his family are invited to join the local community at this function. The Bloemfontein Scottish Band will be present and everyone wear Scottish dress!
On Sunday morning hunters enjoy breakfast. Hunters are welcome to attend the Church Service held at the Dutch Reformed Church (the Bloemfontein Scottish Band will perform here as well). You are welcome to stay longer and enjoy the beautiful Lady Grey scenery or fish, but remember to arrange with the local farmers.
Saterdagoggend bied ons weer ‘n MacLady aan vir die vroue. Inskrywingsgelde vir die MacLady beloop R250 – middagete ingesluit. Bespreek asseblief vooraf by Tersia.
