10 September 2006

This outing was planned some months ago, and is aimed at introducing participants to atlasing on a finer scale than was the case for SABAP 1 We will be focusing on PENTADS, and there will be a charge of R20-00 per person to cover the cost of maps handed out.

Directions for the Meeting Point:

Route: Take the N1 north to Pretoria and then the N4 towards Witbank. Pass through the toll-gate and continue towards Bronkhorstspruit. Just before Bronkhorstspruit, take the off-ramp onto the R513/R568, turning left and towards the north. Cross over the 4-way stop and continue northwards towards Ekandustria/Ekangala. At the first T-junction, go right and continue northwards towards Rust de Winter. You pass Ekandustria and then Ekangala. After about 8-9km from the Cullinan turn-off you will have passed a township close to the road on the right, and big pan on the left. Look for a sign which says Ndebele Mining on the right. Just after this sign there is a turn off (right) onto a road which runs north-east. We will meet about 7km down this road, on the left.

Please be there by 7:30 sharp (1 hour from N4/N1 intersection).
