On the 26th of October 2019, Woodlands School held its annual Golf Day and Oktoberfest, hosted by Sabie Country Club. The golf day entry fee included a goodie bag and lunch. The 18 hole golf competition had a shotgun start and the prize-giving commenced at 6 pm.
The event was very well attended and enjoyed by all who came. There were many food and activity stalls, as well as an art exhibition, which kept the people entertained and well-fed well into the night. Pellet shooting and hitting the bull’s-eye won you your name thrown into a mouth-watering chocolate hamper raffle – which was well sought after by the children as well as the adults – the winner ended up being ex-military who could hit the target with his eyes closed – but all had fun!
The photo booth received quite a lot of attention, and the raffle tickets for the Braai Barrow was available at the Tombola table, Boerie stall, Nerf Gun stall and in the Club Bar. Sabie Brewing Company also present at the Oktoberfest with their beer. The sign proclaiming “Today’s good mood is sponsored by beer,” was an apt description of the day.
“There is still one raffle prize to be won, a ‘Braai Barrow’ that is currently displayed at Sabie County. This raffle includes the barrow itself, along with everything you need to have an over the top braai – the cost of this barrow is estimated at over R2000,” Ronna Vermaak, Woodland’s principal said. Anne-Marie and her band were the entertainment for the evening.
“Though not many local business owners could attend, they truly supported this event by donating generous prizes to be won by our golfers. Thanks again to everyone who helped make this event spectacular. We hope to see you again next year.” Ronna said.
