Thanks for having the Brakpan gang for breakfast yesterday!
We arrived with:
Alouette II
Robinson R66
Cessna 182
Piper PA-235 Cherokee Pathfinder

That "Potbrood" is to die for. I would have had only that with butter and coffee as breakfast if the pap and mince was not so nice!

Note: Please put some signs up from the landing strip to the breakfast area. Just a nitpick.
