Jerrys Old Engines in South Africa

Koos Kriel's Engine Day - 29th July 2006

The last weekend of July of every year is reserved for our annual trek over to Potchefstroom to attend Koos and Ria Kriel's Open Engine Day and attracts friends from as far afield as Kroonstad, Pretoria, the Vaal Triangle and Johannesburg.

Once again this year we were not disappointed. The weather was beautiful, the company tremendous and the sounds and smells of many small engines running in his garden made the day a pleasant success.

It is a "Bring & Braai" affair and side dishes of salads and the like are prepared by Ria and friends. As usual Hendrik Massyn welcomed everyone with his usual hip flask and a shot of "Buchu Brandy" just to get things off to a good start.

Here are some pictures
