Notes From The Editor – Water Crisis talks tonight, fat FOSTER Jol on Saturday, and Sunday Roast at The Brewery. It’s all happening.

Water Crisis Talks Tonight

We have some fun times in our town, but the theme tonight at the Bowling Club is serious. Join Tsitsi-Kouga Constituency Leader Retief Odendaal and DA Cllr Lorraine Maree to talk about St Francis Bay’s water crisis. It’s at the St Francis Bay Bowling Club, a 17:30 for 18:00 start. All COVID-19 health and safety protocols will be observed. 

Day Zero is looming. It’s not going away. We might have pushed it out by a few days, but there is no significant rain on the short and long-term forecasts, so it will happen. 

What is going to happen when the taps run dry? If you have questions, head to the Bowling Club tonight. 

 

FOSTER Jol Saturday Night

The annual FOSTER Jol is always a big celebration, and this year will be no different. With three bands lined up to perform, School Of Rock, Lions Gate and West Wind Station, the jol will be at Joe Fish at the Cape St Francis Resort from 18:00 till late. 

The entry is R200 per adult and includes a potjiekos chow, and the kids are R100, and they get a burger and chips. The theme is Retro Party, and there will be a prize for the best dressed. 

Tickets are available on Quicket right here.

This format provides these groms with an insight into a life of competitive surfing and gives them the invaluable experience of surfing and competing in different waves around the country.

It has been a while since a Surfing South Africa event has been run at Seal Point. The event organisers have contacted the Seal Point Board Riders Club for the necessary permissions. They gave the go-ahead to run this event.

There are several highly skilled and competitive surfers in St Francis Bay. This event allows them to showcase their skills at their home break in front of the judges. It also gives them the chance to show the locals how well they stack up against the visiting surfers. Surfers like the Dace brothers Rory and Joel will be determined to claim a title, with Rory winning the U14 division of the first GromSearch earlier this year at Victoria Bay.
