BEGUN!

One of the best festivals in the Karoo the Castle Lager East Cape Biltong Festival 2014.

The Castle Lager East Cape Biltong Festival 2014 promises to be a star studded affair. With a variety of award winning artists such as Oskido, Theuns Jordaan, Dozi, Heavy- K keeping the cold at bay with their performances on the Castle Lager gig rig stage this winter.

They will be joined by Henk Grimsell, Nicholis Louw, Arno Jordaan, Wicus Van der Merwe, among others, great artists who are no strangers to the festival stage. Also included on this year’s programme are Eastern Cape based artists such as Point 5, jazz outfit Take Note, Chapter Three as well as DJ Pastor, who is also one of the BEE team which is the leading breakfast show in the country at the moment. There is truly something for everyone at this year’s festival.

Fun filled activities such as the Idols competition and the local talent programme, which has become a popular activity at the festival, are also something to look forward to at this year. These additions to the event programme are to encourage local performers; it gives them a platform to exhibit their talents. Be sure to support these local stars on both the Friday and Saturday of the Festival. These acts include traditional songs and dance, youth groups, hip hop and gumboot dancers and many more.

Remember to bring plenty of warm clothes for the chilly Karoo weather, a chair for those who do not want to sit on the grass as well as blankets for the icy evenings. We look forward to having lots of winter fun with everyone so come ‘hang’ with us at the Somerset East Showgrounds in Somerset East the weekend of the 18th and 19th of July.

Cradock Skou –

150 jaar

Vanjaar bied Cradock Skou amptelik die 150ste skou aan. Selfs gedu-rende beide Wêreldoorloë is daar geskou – nogal ‘n pluimpie vir Cradock. Slegs tydens die vloed van 1974 het die skou vir drie jaar nie plaasgevind nie, aangesien die skougronde herbou moes word. Die 150ste skou vind plaas vanaf 30 Oktober tot 1 November en die Skoukomitee beplan om vorige jare te oortref.

In die kleinvee-afdeling sal daar met die Merino, Angora, Suid-Afrikaanse Vleismerino, Slaglam, Boerbok asook Persies geskou word. Die Suid-Afrikaanse Persiekam-pioenskappe sal Sater-dag, 1 November, by die Cradock Skou aangebied word.

Nog ‘n vooruitsig is die Karoo Food Festival wat in ‘n kleiner formaat by die skou aangebied sal word. Dit is ‘n nuwe en opwindende toevoeging tot die skou.

As deel van die 150-feesvieringe sal daar hierdie jaar ‘n uitgebreide program wees. Dinsdag, 28 Oktober, sal daar ‘n “Boererally” aangebied word. Die betrokke organiseerders is: Albert Nortjé, Phillie Schoombee, Abel Jordaan en Charles Garth. ‘n Beroep word op boere gedoen om hulle kennis te laat blyk. Boere moenie huiwer om deel te neem nie – daar is immer geen dom boer in die Cradock Distrik nie.

Woensdag, 29 Oktober, sal daar ‘n groot optog deur die dorp plaasvind waarin die trekker-agentskappe in Cradock sal deelneem.

Die skoudans Vrydag ,31 Oktober, beloof om verwagtinge te oortref aangesien die uit-stekende en gewilde kunstenaar, Andries Vermeulen, sal optree. Daar word gepoog om 300 mense te akkom-modeer vir die dans.

Daar sal op ‘n latere stadium weer oor die skou berig word. Namens die Skoukomitee word daar dank uitgespreek vir al die skou-onder-steuners.
