Sunday, June 26th

June Braai
The Cosman's Garden
From: 4:00pm

It is time for us to get together for a casual event in the Cosman garden -- a great opportunity for us to meet and mingle with our members. We will be featuring a variety of wines from the wine cellar. You just never know ― your old favourite may be among them. A full bbq menu will accompany a range of tasty salads.

As you know food prices have escalated and now that Mario is not doing the Braai anymore we have had to rent BBQ equipment, which resulted in increased costs. Hence we have had to increase the price for the Braai event by a small amount. Payment by Interac is preferred. Cheque is acceptable. Credit is card no longer accepted.

Attendance is limited to 55 persons that are fully vaccinated (2X) and can provide proof. In the event that you feel unwell, you may cancel at any time with no penalty.

Fine wines, a great menu, great people. What’s not to like?


Lamb, chicken, boerewors, chebabs, biltong, salads and of course Melk tert for dessert!

*We will make every effort to accommodate your food allergies or special dietary needs if requested.
