AWARDS PRESENTATION – 17 July 2016

VENUE: LIDO HOTEL EIKENHOF on R82 next to Shell Garage.

TIME: You should aim to be there before midday 12h00.

Attendance could be combined with your Sunday morning bike ride. There is circular route from the Lido along the R550, up the Steppes, along Kliprivier Drive, down Swartkoppies and back to the Lido of ± 40 kms which would serve as an appetiser for lunch which is available either as a buffet or there is an a là carte menu/bar lunch.  Ample safe parking and a kiddies play facility is available.

You could also make use of the swimming pool but do remember to bring your wet suit!

The awards will be presented about 13h00 and comprise presentation stands to hold six or more medals for those who completed six or more Aurasan events in 2015.

Super Randonneur medals to those who completed the required events and a ‘Randonneur of the Year’ Trophy for the deserving recipient, as selected by the board of Aurasan and supported by nominations from some of the membership.

This year for the first time there will be recipients of awards from the Western Cape  who have had a very full 2015 Randonneuring year! Any Randonneur from the W.C. who is able to attend will of course be welcomed. Otherwise the Awards will be sent south for presentation at you own event.

PLEASE ADVISE ME (on tet@telkomsa.net) OF YOUR INTENTION TO ATTEND SO THE LIDO  ARE PREPARED FOR THE EXTRA NUMBERS.
