    Atlanta Braai in May

    It seems now we will need some indication of who will attend, I have started to receive calls from TN and SC. We are only allowed 500 max in the park for the day. I will obviously be a first come basis, but maybe I need to also have tickets? The sale of items on the day will be limited, but none the less, we will be selling boerewors, biltong and a few other treats. We have also added a rain date of 15th May

    Atlanta Braai in May

    We thought about the Sunday/Saturday thing and it seems that too many people work Saturday or have to do things. It does not bother me either day as this is ok with me. So people will not show on Saturday because of the sabbath and some wont show on Sunday for the same reason. I dont know what the answer is, but if you want another braai on a saturday in June, nou praat jy my taal! I will be quite happy to arrange another braai for a Saturday so folks can travel from out of town. Clifford

    I have answered this question so many times before both in the store and my website, I have been giving out a name of a retired Judge who has helped a number to SA's in Atlanta after the last Immigration fiasco, other can tell you about that. Start with an e-mail to Judge Bill Riley at: lofters[at]bellsouth.net He offers a fixed rate immigration program that seems to work and will not take you to the cleaners. He has his name and reputation to protect, so he will not play games with you. Unless you can do things his way, dont waste your time or money. Tell him Clifford gave you his name.

    Atlanta is the same as any other city, it is changing fast. The new growth is moving back into the city. Its called regentrification. Maybe you need to decide how much you want to spend on a house. Most SA's live in the nothern part of ATL. I live in the hood, why because I buy house cheap and rent them to whites who move back into the city. A good way to start is with a real estate agent on line in the ATL area. They can always give you a good idea of where to buy.

    Immigrating with Pets

    The easiest part of moving to the US is your pet, an open door policy on animals. I have two Boerboels in Atlanta. Both from Cape Town

    Atlanta Braai in May

    Hey!!! Hold on tight because here come the costs from Dekalb Co. Parks and Recreation Dept.\ If we have 133 cars (3 persons per car) at $10 per car minus 5 who will throw their toys out of the pram because they have to pay....jy weet wie! MAY 8th is confirmed..........will also pay for a rain day.... Estimated crowd +/- 400 4 x Porta Poties $80.00 each 1 x dumpster $100.00 1 x Park rental $120 1 x vendor permit $50 1 x cop $35 per hour Maybe we wont need a cop as julle nie mekaar moer nie.... Liabiltiy insurance waiver and Indemification (try say that after a few drinks) $ Dont know yet...... So it looks like me might just make it or maybe have to go to $12 per car. We can then use the same park in September again if this works out. Now its time for you to indicate who will like to show up and who wants to help. Ek gaan nie betaal en al die werk doen nie...being from Cape Town, ek is te slim vir dai :censored:

    Atlanta Braai in May

    :ilikeit: Dekalb County has offered Brook Run park in Dunwoody for the braai. I am looking at May 1st or May 8th. Any suggestions on the date? The costs associated with this event are starting to mount, what is your opinion of paying $10 per car or $5.00 per head to attend. Or soemthing like this. The main issue is the $1 mill insurance rider needed by Dekalb Co. Also, who is interested in helping with the marketing? I have enough employees who will work the event, so it's just the front end where we need help. send me an e-mail at mambo7[at]gmail.com Clifford

    Tri-Nations Day in Atlanta

    Wooohooo! I just spoke to Dekalb County about Brook Run Park for the braai. They will have the supervisor review our application for braaing and drinking. If approved we could a day permit for open containers in the park as well as free standing bbq grills. This park if off I-285 in Dunwoody. We will be able to accomodate 500 persons and therefore will need to start a name list for attendance. The area is nice and private and it seems that there is plenty of parking. 4770 North Peachtree Rd, Dunwoody....remember, we are still waiting on final word. Cazz, please call me at work....770 395-1255
