Definition of a Bring and Braai

Afterwards there will be a bring and braai- could some of the hashers also bring a braai as there is only one. For those not initiated in the local languages: Braai: (noun):  a ritual of cremating meat on a fire, seen as a social custom or rite of passage in southern african tribes (verb): to cremate meat on a fire with the intention of eating it; to socialise in a charcoal smoke environment. (like a barbeque, but with real meat or chicken, not a burger patty)

Run 1469: Sunday 22nd @ 10.00: Plot 20810, Block 3

Yes Grand Mattress Brad – note that it is Run 1469


Destination is Plot 20810, Block 3. Makoba rd x Kolokome but carefull as these two streets have two intersections!!!. the good one has a "leopard tree".


(1) Coming from the main mall, take Seboni road towards the BTV circle. Once you reach the circle, take the fourth exit as if you're going back towards the new SADC building/main mall. After +/- 700m, take the first road on your left (Belabele). Then, take the first street on your left (Makoba). If you're not lost then you should have on your right hand side Hillcrest international school. Drive, walk or cycle on Makoba street for another 700m and you'll be there. House in the corner of makoba and kolokome streets behind a leopard tree.


(2) Coming from the barclays circle-western bypass (and moving towards the BTV circle), just take the first on your left and turn right on Makoba. Go straight for 100 m and you'll see the leopard tree


I guess this would help. There will be hash signs...

Run 1467: Sunday 8th August @ 10am

Sunday's run will start from Plot 4746 near State House at 10.00 am.
It will be followed by a bring and braai - bring food as well as eating utensils.

Coming from Nelson Mandela, turn into Khama Crescent. Pass President's Drive, then the road to State House and then take the next left into Makgadikgadi.  Enter the circle and take the first turn left and then about 100m on turn right. The house is the first gate on your right.

Early birds can park inside the compund but there is no parking allowed in the street outside so latecomers can park in Mookla - the second exit from  the traffic cicle.  The hare says - do not allow the guard at the gate to turn you away if there is space inside - apparently, about 10-15 vehicles can park inside).

See the map below from Google  - which thinks we drive on the right in Botswana, so don't go the wrong way round the traffic circle!This is also an old map as North Ring road does not go through to Khama (but it at least gives you an idea where the start is)
