Wynberg Festival 2018 – cancelled due to drought

Sad news is that the ongoing drought and desperate water shortage situation in Cape Town has resulted in Wynberg calling off their annual school rugby festival set for 28-30 April 2018. Bellville, Bishops, DF Malan, Durbanville, Fish Hoek, Garsfontein, Hugenote, KES, Milnerton, Parel Vallei, Rondebosch, SACS, Somerset College, St Benedict’s, Tygerberg, Upington, Windhoek High and Wynberg were booked to take part.

  2. I am happy to report that we will be going to the Grey PE festival… Looking forward to it! Some tough competition there in the form of grey PE, Selborne, Jeppe etc.

  3. @Hooit: Sadly , there is no way that the Paarl Boishaai 150 celebration , scheduled for 3-7 April , can happen , as 12 April has been predicted as day zero for Cape Town…

  4. @BoishaaiPa: Yes we are all praying for you guys to get rain… I read yesterday that if day zero comes, capetown will be the first major city in modern history to run out of water – a scary thought!

    I only heard the rumour that saru is considering the move…

  5. @BoishaaiPa: We ALL pray for that one. Rain will come.
    Then I have organized some accommodation for the BIG Paarl Inter. Will be a first for me. Looking forward to a luscious green Cape by then.

  6. @Rugbyman: If we don’t get good rains by Easter Weekend I agree that the CW must be moved to somewhere that can accommodate the tournament without putting strain on the water resources. I am however very positive that we will get some good rains to alleviate the situation somewhat by Easter….I live in hope!

  7. @Rugbyman: At least we all understand their situation and pray for rain. Cravenweek in Pretoria will allow me to watch.

  9. The next question should be ‘Is there enough water for Paarl to host the 150 years celebration and Cravenweek?

  10. How about Garsies inviting Westville and/or two off the above schools to come and play at Berepark?

    Perhaps Tygerberg and bring Dok F along. KES can work, not far to travel, won’t pouch the souties.
