A million people show up for Wet Nose Day 2011

OK, so Saturday rolled around and I was off to Bronkhorstspruit to go help the guys from Wetnose Animal Recue Centre braai at one of the stalls. I was expecting to braai a couple of boerie rolls, take the dogs for a stroll and then drink a couple of beers… boy, was I in for a surprise. Wet Nose Day 2011 was a HUGE Success!

We had like a million people rock up for the event and they all came hungry. OK, I think the organisers said it was closer to 1, 000… but it was still a shitload. I started braaing at 09h00 or so and didn’t stop until just before 16h00. I think we braaied each and every piece of wors and all the patties available in all of Bronkies’ butcheries… which is all good news for the animals, since all the proceeds from the day went to Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre who sorely need it as they don’t receive any government funding.

Wet Nose Day Braai

Thank you VERY much to everyone that popped in to say hello.

There was also lots to entertainment throughout the day, including a dog show and even a beauty pageant… so all in all the day proved to be lots and fun, and I’m very much looking forward to next year – and I hope to see even more of you there. You’re also more than welcoem to give them a shout any other time fo the year…http://www.wetnose.org.za/ – The WetNose Animal Rescue Centre is always looking for volunteers and a helping hand.

I’d love to hear your comments below, or you can always give me a shout on twitter or facebook… otherwise I’ll catch around the braai!


Works Hard, Plays Harder... always Braaing!
