On Saturday the 2nd of September we hosted our annual NUC Spring Braai, the weather was perfect and a good turn out meant we had an absolute blast of day. The snoek braai, prepared by Marcel and Spy went down a treat, so did all the ice cold beer!
We also hosted our very first NUC beer pong competition, which provided much entertainment all round and set the tone for the rest of the afternoon. Well done to Tom and ‘The Dragon’ for winning the beer pong competition and the floating trophy in a hotly contested final which went down to sudden death with Daleen and Mark, we hope you will be back next year to defend your title.
The typical booze cruise that followed on Bert’s Tub was short but hilarious and enjoyed by all aboard, for me this is always a highlight of any NUC function on the dam!.
Well done to Vince, Tom and Marcel for cleaning up the awesome spread in the raffle, from dive trips, model cars, dive and spearo knives and Jeep gear. A big thank you also to everyone who bought tickets for supporting the club and to the sponsors of the prizes (African Dive Adventures, ORCA and Arnold Chatz Cars).
These social events are not only what makes our club unique but also are also an important part of our fundraising to be able to keep the oldest dive club in Joburg alive. Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed the day with us.
In case you missed out; don’t dispair! The NUC committee are already hard at work preparing for our next event, the annual Beerfest on the 28th of October – as per usual, everyone is welcome and all are encouraged to bring a guest or two.
We also have a trip planned to Ponto at the end of September, if you are keen you can find details about this trip below, on our website and Facebook page. If you have any questions please feel free to give us a shout.
Again a huge thank you to all who helped organise and who attended for making the day a success – here’s to many more.
