The weekend heralded the end of Winter and the start of Spring. Pity someone forgot to tell the weather to play ball. PE got smashed by some hectic winds, peaking at 87km/h. Obviously not much in the way of surf in the bay, but if you ventured west you coulda had some fun.
The CYOH crew held the CYOH Surf Off #3 on Sunday in some pretty wild conditions. Rumour had it they had to half bury the groms in the sand so the lighties didn't get blown away. Some amazing prizes won by the guys n gals who braved the gale force winds.
Some equally crazy peeps took part in the first Colour Run in PE, held at the NMMU campus. Entailed a 5k run whilst other peeps sprayed paint on you. Gotto beat a normal boring 5k run any day. Plenty ou's ended up with purple teeth, pink hair and green faces. Kiff. And if you missed the Colour Run, there's a Glow Run coming up on 16 Nov. More <here>
Spring Day back in 1968 saw massive floods in PE. Still today known as THE flood. Water a metre deep in Cape Rd, and turned the Baakens into a raging torrent. It also turned the Sark River (at Humewood) into a mini-Niagara Falls, with water pouring straight over the bridge. Musta made some interesting sandbanks at Humewood for a while....that's if you could brave the sketchy water.
And in other news......Liverpool kicked Man U's butt. Yes please!! Anyone missing Fergie yet??
