MONTHLY AND ANNUAL EVENTS

* March - Wartrail Tri-Challenge. Initiated in 2000 and based on the Primal Action Sky run, the Wartrail Tri-Challenge is a hybrid eco-triathlon - iron man type extension, with an adventure race attitude. Held over the March 21 Human Rights long weekend, (traditional rain season) with an ultra event each day.

* Easter - Lady Grey Easter Passion Play – Named as the “Oberammergau” of SA this Passion Play is gaining popularity year after year. Be sure not to miss out this year!

*June – Royal MacNab Hunting Challenge - In the late 1990’s border farmers from Lady Grey experienced an increase in stock theft. This was of great concern and they decided to employ a guard to patrol the farms on foot. The idea of the Lady Grey Royal MacNab was born with the purpose of funding the employment of the guard. The Royal MacNab has grown into a fun filled three day event which usually takes place during a weekend in June. It on the Friday when the participants meet each other and are given the opportunity to adjust their rifles and shoot guinea fowl. The Hunt takes place on the Saturday. To complete the MacNab, the participant has to shoot a Mountain Reedbuck and Greywing Francolin and catch a Trout (in any order) within 12 hours. A highlight of the event is the prize giving and Scottish Evening that takes place on the Saturday evening. The MacNab ends on the Sunday morning with a special Church service and the East London Caledonian Pipers providing the music. Contact: Caspie Vorster Cell: +27 (082) 494- 3570
