Location : 9nm South of Rustenburg Northwest Province. 25°45'46.9"S, 27°19'19.7"E
Airspan Runway length, 890m 03/21 gravel.

We will be posting all the finer details and program within the next 36hrs, since it was decided very recently by enthusiastic Jabinaunts to hold a Jaunt this year. Airspan has taken up this responsibility to organise this event this year 2016 to give Sias and Henk a well deserved break.

Due to popular demand :oops: me and Keith had a chat today and in conclusion to use this years gathering at Airspan as a trial or prelim for the 2017 Jabiru Jaunt at Airspan :idea:
I reckon that Carnarvon was the best spot thus far and all credit to Rob and his team =D> =D> =D>
As promised, we all would like to see the country whilst playing, so to change the venue would not be a bad idea....i suppose.
Since the Jaunt takes a lot of energy to stage i felt that a break in 2016 would do everybody good AND with possible changes to the program (not drastically) :D will do no harm either.
I have learned from the past that you "do not krap where it doesn't jeuk.........hmmm?" BUT do not just "neuk voort"....also....
Oom Ses stepped to the fore with his recent fly away and supposedly gave some guys a well deserved Jabiru Gathering =D>
Thank you Oom SES =D> =D> =D>
Me and Fernando already spoke (earlier this year) about the general guidelines for 2017 but i need at least another 2-3 pair of hands to assist.
Henk, Oom Ses, Francois, Chris, Ben, Wynand, Marietha, Jan Coetzee, Len, Les and so many other made a huge contrition in the past and thank you so much =D> =D> =D>
but i need people on a more close and permanent basis to assist.
Please PM me if you would like to help me with staging the 2017 Jaunt.
If time allows i will like to attend the Airspan event.
Thank you Airspan Team for the "interim" =D> =D> =D>
Cant wait for details :D

OK boys and girls, time to get organized and planned for this.

We made it close to Gunteng for a reason, as many complained that they could not find the time to go to the far Jaunts.

You can fly in on the Saterday morning early and out again in the afternoon is you absolutely have to.

But do yourself a massive favour and stay at least the Saterday night, if not Friday and Saterday! 8)

Flew in Saterday and spend the night there with Keith and Hettie planning and discussing.

Going to be GREAT!

Come on, get organized!!
