The “Sandy Bay-Rocket Road” mountain bike trail, in Hout Bay, is broken!

The “Sandy Bay-Rocket Road” mountain bike trail, in Hout Bay, is broken!

After the torrential rain over the weekend, the Sandy Bay-Rocket Road mountain bike trail has been severely eroded. There is a huge mudslide on the Rocket Road section, will the path down to Sandy Bay has got dongas six feet deep. The path to the Llandudno is also severely water logged.

I think it will need mother nature’s South Easter to smooth and dry everything out.

Hey Hout Bay, this is “MAFRIKA’S VISION OF HOPE AND LOVE AT FAMFEST”

Hey Hout Bay, this is “MAFRIKA’S VISION OF HOPE AND LOVE AT FAMFEST”

MAfrika will entertain and inspire children with her vision of a world of hope, love and awesome possibility, when she makes her debut appearance at FamFest at the Constantia Sports Complex on Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December.

Multi-talented actress Nicola Jackman originally created MAfrika as a “Care Clown” when visiting hospitals. But the 6-year-old “emerald green” character has developed a life of her own and now stars in a highly interactive 50 minute edu-tainment show, which teaches children how to release fear, laugh loads and learn that love is the most powerful choice.

Jackman, who was named 2013 Glamour Magazine Women of the Year and describes herself as a “fear fighter” and “joy activist”, says MAfrika was created to grow love, joy and unity in the world.

Presented by Jackman’s The UPliftment Program, which works with Care Clowns (who will also be at FamFest), the show encourages children to choose love through games, laughter-filled moments and heart-to-heart joy and healing.

Aimed at children aged 4 to 12 the show follows MAfrika’s journey from the fantastical land of MinXa to find the WOWders and save her land from the Numshaq. It has toured South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe, delighting over 6 500 children and adults. Visit www.mafrika2012.com and www.theup.org.za for more information.

The jam-packed summertime line-up for FamFest, a 100% family-friendly outdoor festival, also includes Sporting Chance, Jellybean Events, DRUMKiDZ, The Rockerfellas, roaming magicians and nutritionist Hannah Kaye who will deliver a talk.

There are some people in Hangberg, Hout Bay who really love their dogs….

There are some people in Hangberg, Hout Bay who really love their dogs….

Recent footage has emerged of dog-fights happening in Hangberg, Hout Bay. Click here to view the video.

Dog fighting is a type of blood sport, generally defined as pitting two game dogs against one another in a ring or a pit for the entertainment of the spectators or the gratification of the dogfighters, who are sometimes referred to as dogmen.[1] In rural areas, dog fights are often staged in barns or outdoor pits; in urban areas, fights may occur in garages, basements, warehouses, abandoned buildings, back alleys, neighborhood playgrounds, or in the streets.[2][3] Dog fights usually last until one dog is declared a winner, which occurs when one dog fails to scratch, one dog dies, or one dog jumps out of the pit.[4] The loser, if not killed in the fight, is typically killed by the owner through a gun, beatings, or torture.[1] However, sometimes dog fights end without declaring a winner. For instance, the dog’s owner may call the fight.[4] Dog fighting generates revenue from stud fees, admission fees and gambling. It is also a felony in all 50 U.S. states including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.[2] In addition to being a felony in all 50 U.S. states, the federal U.S. Animal Welfare Act makes it unlawful for any person to knowingly sell, buy, possess, train, transport, deliver, or receive any dog for purposes of having the dog participate in an animal fighting venture. The act also makes it unlawful for any person to knowingly use the mail service of the United States Postal Service or any instrumentality of interstate commerce for commercial speech for purposes of advertising a dog for use in an animal fighting venture, promoting or in any other manner furthering an animal fighting venture except as performed outside the limits of the States of the United States.[5] Worldwide, several countries have banned dog fighting, but it is still legal in some countries like Japan, Honduras, and parts of Russia

All Hout Bay roads lead to FAMFEST!

All Hout Bay roads lead to FAMFEST!

Following its successful launch in Autumn this year, FamFest South Africa is back for Summer with a two-day festival of family-friendly fun. The event which celebrates the joy of childhood, takes place at the Constantia Sports Complex on Saturday November 30 and Sunday December 1.

Born from a desire to create family amusement that’s safe, FamFest was imagined by 4Leaf Agency’s Frankie Hannigan. A father of three young boys, Frankie concocted the event with his business partner, Rob Lee, with children at the forefront of their planning.

Set on beautiful lawns with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and neighbouring suburbs, FamFest is staffed by child minders and offers an abundance of activities and entertainment for both young and old.

Health, Safety and Security are paramount and every child is given a wristband on entry, with parents/guardians asked to write their telephone numbers on the wristbands. There is a clearly visible meeting point, with announcements made throughout the event to ensure smooth operations. There is also an on-site medic, an ATM machine and card machine facilities.

We look forward to working with you on the day.

Here is their website www.famfest.co.za or on Facebook
