« on: January 18, 2018, 03:43:45 pm »
THE NATIONAL LADA NIVA GATHERING SOUTH AFRICA 2018 GARIEPDAM SPECIAL
 
What:
For the Second time,  we are organising the national gathering for Lada Niva Owners in South Africa.

Why:
To get all the Lada Niva owners together. It will be a weekend filled with off-roading, making friends, meeting up with old acquaintances, learning from each other, and just generally admiring each other’s Niva’s.

Where:
The venue will be at Siloam Village Eastern cape. We have chosen this location, because it is central most central in south africa and is affordable unfortunately we could not find anything in gariep town. this will provide the best opportunity for people from all over South Africa to attend.


When:
21 – 24 September 2017. We have chosen National Braai day weekend, as the Monday is a public holiday. This means that most people will only need to take one days leave to attend. If people can’t take leave that Friday you are more than welcome to join us from Saturday. The intention is to make it as easy as possible for all people to attend.

Attendees:
LADA NIVA Owners. The more people who attend the better. Preference will be given to Lada Niva owners, but if you have any friends or family that would like to attend with other brands of 4x4, they are welcome provided we have the space.

Trail:
Sunday, we will be driving the Donkerpoort 4x4. This 20km long off-road route is located donkerpoort in the Free State. the trail has LVL 1 to 5 obstacles with the option to bypass the obstacle. Trail cost 150 rand a vehicle for the ones that dont have 4x4 ladas or don't like to do 4x4 will have other great activities. from nature reserve drive to boat trip on the dam.


Costs:
There will be 3 components to the costs. One will be the cost of the accommodation (and is covered in more detail below), the others will be the entry fee for the event, and the fee for the trail.
The entry fee is R150 per person, with children under 16 free. This fee will cover the cost of a goody bag, Lada get together t-shirt, lunch on Saturday and Sunday while on the trail, various prizes and a guide for the trail.


Accommodation has been specially organised together with Siloam village. special club rates have been provided for us.
they can also provide catering if you prefer.

Prizes:
Prizes will be awarded for:
•   Best preforming Niva (only nivas)
•   Best performing Driver (open)
•   Best looking Niva (only nivas)
•   Sportsmanship (open)

Recovery Gear:
In the interests of safety, it is highly recommended that everyone come prepared with their recovery kit. We do not want a situation where someone is stuck on the mountain, and we have to try and recover them using an old frayed ski-rope.

Accommodation:
We will be staying at the Siloam village. This venue has been chosen as we receiving a special club rate, has good facilities and offers something for everybody depending on your needs and budget. It is family friendly with playgrounds for the kids, with a large central entertainment area and kitchen and multiple pools and bars.

•   Saturday and Sunday dinner
•   Saturday and Monday breakfast

As this is a popular long weekend, the Siloam village will be in demand, so we suggest that you book early to ensure that there is space for you.

This is a partially catered weekend, so there are a few meals that you will need to supply yourself.
saturday and monday breakfast organised by Siloam village
Saturday and sunday Diner organised by Siloam village
Saturday and sunday lunch organised by the club.
the rest is self.

Aside from the tea and coffee provided, you will need to supply your own drinks. There is a bar at the siloam village, as well as fridges which you may use to store your drinks in.

Sneak Peak of the 4x4 route, Grades 3-5 with safe bypasses for less experienced drivers / less competitive Lada Niva's / People who need to drive far to get back home. Lots of activities are planned for the event.

If you want to know whether coming is a good idea, speak to some one who attended Clarens 2017...........
