A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.

STEFANUS MALAN MAAK
ADELAIDE TROTS
Stefanus Malan
ADELAIDE
Mnr Stefanus Malan is op 23 Oktober 2013 herkies vir ‘n tweede termyn van 3 jaar as president van die Suid – Afrikaanse Boerboekvereniging. Die kongres het in Bloemfontein plaasgevind. Met die unieke prestasie volg hy in die voetspore van sy pa, wyle Oom Boetie Malan wat president was van die Suid – Afrikaanse Boerboekvereniging van 1986 tot 2001. Adelaide is baie trots op die groot geeste in die landbou wat uit ons midde kom. Adelaide maak op vele terreine ‘n diep merk in die Suid – Afrikaanse landboukonteks. Mag Malan in die volgende termyn, vele hoogtepunte beleef vir die noodsaaklike werk wat die vereniging lewer aan die boerdery gemeenskap.

EP Offroad Triathlon
Champs in
Somerset East
The EP Offroad Triathlon Champs takes place at The Boschberg Hub, Somerset East on 16 November.
It’s a great opportunity for triathletes as well as swimmers, mountain bikers and trail runners, who want to enter a team, to compete in a brand new event on the offroad triathlon calendar. With the Boschberg Mountain providing a stunning backdrop, athletes will be treated to some of the best terrain in the swim, cycle and run stages.
Racing kicks off with the LITE distance (650m swim, 13km MTB & 4km run) at 10AM. The FULL distance (1,3km swim, 25km MTB & 8km run) starts at 2PM.
Registration for both races takes place on the day, allowing out-of-town participants ample time to get to the event and collect their goody bags.
Event sponsors Merrell and Liberty, as well as nutrition & hydration sponsor, USN and the Somerset East Cycling Club will ensure that competitors are well looked after. Great goody bags and fantastic prizes are up for grabs, including a very unique and funky Merrell bicycle valued at R8000 for one lucky participant.
The routes which have been set out by Stephen van Niekerk from the Somerset East Cycling Club traverse some of the best and most scenic terrain in the Eastern Cape.
Prize-giving takes place at the Boschberg Hub immediately after each race.
We encourage all athletes to stay on into the evening and enjoy a steak braai put on by the Somerset East community.
Camping sites are available at the venue and Somerset East offers a great selection of Guesthouses for those who want to make a weekend of it.
