    Great day out! Managed to randomly hook up with various members of the group through the day. Great idea, would never have known about it if not for you my learned associates :)

    It is great to see you enjoyed the festival! Good to let your hair down sometimes, right?

    My sister really enjoyed meeting you all - she is so impressed with the diversity of people we have as members.

    I uploaded some photos, but hope you can add to that to try and get most people on at least one photo. So please do not be shy and add to the album.

    There is one person that I can not identify so if you are that guy who took my number in the street, then please give a shout out here to be added to the attended list. Just tell us where you found me!

    Was great to meet older members who joined us for an outing again, too. Thank you to all who came and added their flare to the afternoon!

    Thanks for organizing the meetup, it was good fun. Didn't get to say hi but I did get to see you through the restaurant window, lol! By the time we got to Café de la crème they had closed and locked the doors, what a pity because I was hungry, so went and got some tasty cat from the local Chinese restaurant, ha!ha!

      Sayed was also in the same situation - looking at me through the window. Not going to tell you my sandwich did not have cat on it, though. You might put salt in my coffee next time.

      You joke, an ex-girlfriend used to put salt in her coffee. I think her whole family used to do same, so I naturally thought all Afrikaners were that way inclined. LOL!!!

    Awesome festival!! Thank you Elain, for organising and connecting us all, even though losing one another is (apparently) inevitable ;-)

      It usually happens with these big crowds, but as long as we start out together we can regroup back here on this page afterwards!

    Nice to see you Elain, even though we only connected a whole lot later. Good beer, pizza and great company - looking forward to the next Fête/Mardis Gras.

    Great turnout! How does a Whatsapp group sound to keep everyone together should anyone get lost? Please send me your phone number by clicking on my profile next to this message if you want to be part of that Saturday.

    If you do not have Whatsapp you can simply text me to find out where the group is if you get lost on that day.

    I will also post on this wall on Saturday afternoon, so you can check in here too.

    Further details to be sent to your inboxes later this week.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
