GAMTOOS MOUTH RESORT HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER 27
A MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS WAS HELD ON TUESDAY

19 FEBRUARY 2008

If you have any news, swops etc please contact René (Rienie) on 083 320 2371.

Haal diep asem. Dit kalmeer die gemoed. Nou dat jy kalm is, geniet saam met ons die inhoud van dié nuusbrief! Without really looking out for it, autumn has started to become part of our lives again. One notices it when you wake up in the morning and one has to switch on lights. With the electricity problems we experience so often it might be a good idea to get up later and use sunlight instead of ‘bulblight!!!!


FEEDBACK FROM THE MEETING
TELEPHONE, INTERNET & E-MAIL CONNECTIVITY

Marius Rautenbach is still working on it and will give more feedback in due course.


STORM WATER/ FLOODING PHASE 1

The tenders for the resolution of this problem were received but unfortunately it was much more than the original estimate of the Engineers, in fact R108 000-00 or 43% more. We are looking for and researching less expensive options. Watch this space!!


ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED GATES

The system is in operation. The cell phone system is working very well and should you want to participate, please contact Bruce Rabinson on 083 377 4110 or fax 042 293 4270.


BEACH CLEANING

The beach cleaning exercise was held on 22 February 2008. For the first time we were 19 people and it really made it a much lighter task. Afterwards we enjoyed an egg burger, coffee and gingerbeer. Thank you to Pieter and Salomé for their contributions. Pieter De Beer appeals to Phase 1 residents to please get involved. Only 1 of the 19 participants was from Phase 1.


TEAM GREEN (input by Graeme Goodwin)

The Environmental committee was appointed by you, the Homeowners. The time for responsible citizen participation in protecting the environment is upon us, and every effort needs to be made to care for our threatened species and ecosystems.

We Humans love to take but are reluctant to give or put back. All estuaries including our own are under serious threat. Some Homeowners are still indiscreet about cutting down trees and removing our natural vegetation. Some Homeowners have even carpeted their gardens. Each Erf comes with a garden, be thankful for that!

As a committee we will be working on signage to improve awareness. An indigenous nursery will be established and all trails will be upgraded.

Benches will be placed at different intervals on the trails. You can help by donating a bench; these will be recycled plastic, (maintenance free) each with a plaque giving your family name and year.

To donate a Bench – contact Gayle Goodwin @ 078 339 1998.

Take care, be positive, give back, and keep it green and clean.

Best regards

Graeme
CONSTRUCTION OF CAUSE WAY

Manie Venter's quote for the road to the slipway was accepted by the Board and he is expected to start shortly

.

TENTED CAMP FACILITY



Cannot get hold of Mr. Struwig of the Department (D.E.A.E.T). Nevertheless the Board has instructed that the final working drawings must be prepared and submitted to the Archcom and Kouga Municipality as soon as possible. Maybe Mr. Struwig will then realise that we are serious about the mentioned matter.

KOUGA VALUATIONS

In the case of receiving a valuation for your property from Kouga Municipality you, as homeowner, has to accept or reject it yourself. If you reject the figure then you MUST submit your own objection timeously.

PLEASE remember to notify the Association Administration immediately when you receive a rates account as the Kouga Municipality have, to date, not given us a hearing.


NEWSLETTER

The NEWSLETTER is now available on website: www.gamtooshomeowners.co.za If you make use of the website please inform us as we will then cease sending you a hard copy.


LOAD SHEDDING TIMETABLES

A weekly schedule will be placed on the notice boards every Friday. Gamtoos falls into the Group 2 category. These times are applicable if load shedding should take place. For more information concerning this matter you can visit the following website: www.nelsonmandelabay.gov.za

We experienced a blackout (not Escom related) during December 2007. This was caused by dampness and rodent problems. The electricians worked on the high voltage circuit breakers and the follow up maintenance work should be completed within the next ± 3 weeks.
NEW YEAR'S EVE GRUNTER'S GREEN BONFIRE

Messrs Pennichini and Evans have complained and want the Bonfire to be stopped. How do YOU feel about it? Contact the Office or René to view your opinion in writing. The majority vote should prevail.


HONDE/DOGS

A, dit bly maar die ou -ou storie - ons doen maar weereens 'n beroep op u om toe te sien dat u honde in u erf bly en as u met hulle gaan stap dat hulle aan 'n leitou is. As iemand 'n probleem met 'n ander persoon se hond ervaar, probeer asseblief om dit met die eienaar uit te klaar.

The resort does not have a dog catcher and we do not want one. The SPCA's telephone number at Humansdorp is 042 295 2814 and they are prepared to take in stray animals.
REPAIRS TO PUBLIC ROADS

This is the responsibility of the Public Works Department and the Board has suggested that the Homeowners Association should report the state of the roads to the Department and not get involved as such.


GENERAL
DIRECTORS AND CO -OPTED MEMBERS

* GF Rushmere replaces CB Rushmere.

* D Lee who was co -opted Archcom and Environment Committee member has resigned. The Board would like to convey their appreciation for his commitment and hard work. Nobody has replaced him yet.

PIETER DE BEER'S THOUGHTS ON LITTERING WITHIN THE RESORT

GAMTOOS HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION

Many of the residents who are currently living in Gamtoos, made a choice to retire here and many residents came here to make this place their permanent residence, although not retired yet. Some are fortunate enough to invest in Gamtoos as a holiday resort. However, each individual made the decision as a direct result of the beauty, peace and calm of this beautiful place. Such beauty is difficult to find elsewhere in our country. It is for this reason that we as proud homeowners are so protective of our peaceful and beautiful place, or should I rather say, “we were under the impression” that it was a peaceful and beautiful place. One should only look around us to experience the outrageous wastage of the following:

Sweet wrappers, soft drink cans and bottles, empty two litre cold drink bottles, etc. etc. etc. These unsightly and useless items are strewn all over the roads; onto our neighbour’s erven and where-ever it is comfortable for one to dispose of it. An innocent fishing exhibition to the river becomes a disaster. Once at the prime spot, and hoping to be out of sight, the anglers turn into monsters. All the rubble I mentioned earlier is left all over the terrain but the dirt drums, which are placed there, are found empty. Culprits seem to enjoy breaking their empty bottles thus leaving very dangerous broken glass pieces to unexpected visitors to the area. This is a serious matter because once injured by such a broken bottle, a person has to travel a long way for assistance. What about the children? People tend to ignore the fact that this is a nature reserve and that whoever has the privilege to enter it, must be responsible in order to remain welcome in the reserve. Once you entered the Gamtoos area, which reminded us of paradise in the past, one is greeted with rubble. Don’t you dare take a visitor on a tour to our beautiful beach! One feels ashamed to see all the rubble and you are left apologizing for the mess created by careless people. One should not risk taking off ones shoes while strolling on the beach. The place is booby-trapped and you will definitely be robbed of your precious blood. Did our beach become the new dumping site? One might ask.

It is interesting to note how many people are carrying heavy laden cooled boxes, which are filled to the brim with all sorts of lovely cold pleasures, which are intended for the day on the beach. Would you believe when I say that these empty pleasures become extra heavy after a day’s fun in the sun! All the empties are disposed of right there and then. All bottles must be broken of course otherwise the day was not a success. My pleasure has now become your nightmare.

Bravo to those brave souls who think our beaches are for their pleasure alone, while endangering others in their four track vehicles and Quadra cycles. You are forbidden to do so gentlemen. What happened to the pride and responsibility of the South African, I might ask? What about the bird life and all the creatures that live on the beaches? One day it will all be gone and who will we blame?

Lets us wake up and be responsible before it is too late.

It is our duty as homeowners to assist wherever we can to ensure that Gamtoos returns to its former glory.

I beg you to be part of this action against those who litter our beautiful Gamtoosriviermond.
GAMTOOS HUISEIENAARS VERENIGING

Ons almal wat hier kom aftree het, het hierheen gekom omdat hierdie seersekerlik een van die mooiste natuur omgewings in die land is, of sal ek se “was”.

Kom ons kyk om ons rond hier waar ons woon. Lekkergoed papiere, koeldrank blikkies, sigaret stompies en leë pakkies, bierblikkies en bottels en twee liter koledrank bottels lê oral gestrooi. Dit lê in die strate en in die buurman se erf.

Wanneer ons by die rivier gaan hengel, dan word ons sleg. Langs hierdie natuurbewarings reservaat lê al die rommel waarvan ek melding gemaak het. Wanneer ‘n mens by die afrit na ons eens op ‘n tyd “paradys” kom, word jy met rommel gegroet. Ons kry skaam om aan buitestanders ons pragtige strand te gaan wys. Hier moet jy nie waag om kaalvoet te probeer stap nie, anders word jy vinnig van jou kosbare bloed ontneem. Die strand het blykbaar in ‘n stortings terrein ontaard, deur mense wat nie ‘n duit omgee vir ander se welstand nie. Vol bottels wyn en bier word met moeite na die strand gedra maar wanneer dit leeg is word die nuttelose bottels blaakbaar te swaar om terug te dra. Gerieflikheidshalwe word hierdie nuttelose kruike daar en dan gebreek sodat ons ons voete stukkend moet sny. Wat her geword van die eerlike wetsgehoorsame Afrikaner wat so trots op ons erfenis was?

Hulle jaag met hul vier trek voertuie onwettig op die strande rond sonder om die onskuldige persone se lewens in ag te neem. Ons voël lewe en vis word goedmoeds uitgeroei en dan wil ons weet wie se skuld dit is.

Kom ons skrik wakker en keer voor dit te laat is. Dit is elke eienaar se plig om ons te help om ons pragtige Gamtoosriviermond weer tot sy oorspronklike glorie terug te bring en hom weer ons trots te maak.

GROOT ASSEBLIEF.

P. De Beer.

THE TREE'S PRAYER.
You who would pass by and raise your hand against me,

take care, lest you harm me.

I am the heat of your fire on the cold winter's night,

the friendly shade screening you from the summer sun,

and fruits are refreshing, quenching your thirst as you journey on.

I am the beam that holds your house, the board of your table,

the bed on which you lie and the timber that builds your boat.

I am the timber of your hoe, the door of your homestead,

the wood of your cradle and the shell of your coffin.

I am the gift of God and the friend of man,

you who pass by, listen to my prayer.

HARM ME NOT!

(Translated from an engraving in the garden of MARIMURTA SPAIN).

SPECIAL THANKS

To all the Folk of Gamtoos .

As most of you know we experienced a fire in our home in the late afternoon of January 23rd. By the time I managed to get back to the house from the main gate, some builders teams and various other people were getting the fire under control. If it were not for them we would definitely not have had a house left standing.

To you all we Thank You from the bottom of our hearts, for all your magnificent help.

But it doesn’t stop there because subsequently all of you in Gamtoos have shown your great concern and have opened you hearts and been so supportive to us, which has helped so greatly through this difficult and emotional time. For this we don’t know how to say thank you enough, but would humbly like to say Thank You and God Bless you all.

Best Wishes

The Todd’s.

A MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS WAS HELD ON THURSDAY

29 MAY 2008

If you have any news, swops etc please contact René (Rienie) on 083 320 2371.

We start this letter with wintry greetings - one can for sure now feel and see that we are in the cold season of the year! Despite the nippy weather we are fortunate to be at the seaside where one does not have the same cold weather conditions as in the inland!

We are fortunate to have Angela Stockly as a resident. She is currently working on a brochure in which she is going to try to get the residents and visitors acqainted with the beauty and history of our resort and surrounds. She is planning to submit the brochure quarterly and it will also appear on the website.
FEEDBACK FROM THE MEETING TELEPHONE, INTERNET & E-MAIL CONNECTIVITY

Marius Rautenbach is still working on it and will give more feedback in due course.


STORM WATER/ FLOODING PHASE 1

We are still trying to buy back erf 183 to create a settling pond (landscaped and fenced) with a pump so that excess water can be pumped out, when the need rises. The present owners are unwuilling to sell. We are continuing to try to persuade them to sell or to swop. We will keep you updated.

REMOTE CONTROL REPAIRS

The Homeowners Association has nothing to do with repairs or a service exchange systems. The following rules apply:

(1) The warranty period - guarantee is four (4) weeks max. If a remote is brought back within four (4) weeks, Jenny Todd or Pieter de beer can exchange them ang get them fixed at the Homeowners expense. (Obviously only if they don't look as if they have been abused, etc. etc. etc.).

(2) After four (4) weeks Homeowners must buy another unit.

Broken units can be left with Jenny Todd or Pieter de Beer or taken directly to Ross Bowman at Security Technology Worx for repairs. We will attempt to get these broken units fixed. If successful we will return them to the owners and charge them for the repairs.
COMPLETION OF CAUSEWAY

Cause way has been completed. They are busy with the maintenance of the slipway road from the cause way to the slipway.

WATER COST COMPARISON

Gamtoos Mouth Resort residents are paying R5.50 per kilolitre. Jeffrey's Bay residents are paying R6.00 per kilolitre - this when an availability charge of R46.70 and a consumption of 25 kilolitres are taken into reckoning.


DISTRICT ROAD 434

This road has now been repaired with the assistance of Marius Keyser and Chris Strauss of the Department of Roads. We extend a word of appreciation for these most needed repairs. To drive along a road without potholes is a real pleasure.


SUBSTATION

The work on the substation is completed. This was started after the arching which caused a blow out in the substation. An extractor fan with a timer had been installed for ventilation. The walls had been waterproofed and rat traps were set to stop rodents from entering the system and bird proofing was also done.

HUNTER'S GREEN BONFIRE REFERENDUM

A petition, which clearly indicated that the majority of the residents were against the mentioned bonfire, was signed by most of the permanent residents and handed to the Board. Afterwards Zane Hayes also submitted a list of petitioners FOR the bonfire. At the Board meeting it had been agreed that a referendum should be held with the next NEWSLETTER. Homeowners can bring out their vote on this matter at issue on the ballot paper which will be included in the NEWSLETTER. The outcome will be final!!


GENERAL

GAMTOOS MOUTH RESORT HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER 29
A MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS WAS HELD ON THURSDAY 4 SEPTEMBER 2008.

If you have any news, swops etc please contact René (Rienie ) on 083 320 2371.

Die aanbreek van die lente is darem maar ‘n wonderlike tyd van die jaar , dit is ‘n tyd vir feesviering , die begin van ‘n splinternuwe jaar deur Moeder Natuur. Saam met die lekker lentemaande kom daar natuurlik allerhande tuintake wat aangepak moet word. Trek vandag nog die tuinhandskoene aan en raak sommer lekker vuil.

Ek het vanoggend vroeg opgestaan en toe ek deur die venster kyk, sien ek ‘n Bosbokooi wat heerlik aan my Gezanias vreet en later het sy ook aan die doringboom se punte gevreet. Is ons nie bevoorreg om in so ‘n rustige plek te woon nie , om die wildediere en die ongerepte natuur so te geniet nie. Wat egter baie ontstellend is , is dat mense die bokke met klippe gooi – groot asseblief indien U dit sien rapporteer dit asseblief aan Pieter de Beer , hy sal definitief die nodige aandag aan dit gee.


FEEDBACK FROM THE MEETING
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETINGThe AGM will take place at 14h00 on Saturday the 1st of November 2008 at the home of Julian and Vanessa Kasperski.
STORM WATER/ FLOODING PHASE 1- PONDING OF ERF 183

Negotiations with the owner in progress. A précis of events as well as details of his neighbors has been sent to Mr Holmes as requested. The intention is to acquire the plot from him and to create a pond there. We will keep you updated.


REMOTE CONTROL SALES

Vanessa Kasperski is taking over the task of selling remotes. Please contact her on 082 297 0170.

KOUGA CAMPING GROUND

Angela Stockley has obtained the documents the Board needs to study before we meet with Kouga Municipality. (Management Plan and the PPP) Angela will arrange for a meeting in October.


REPAIR OF THE SLIPWAY

A tender for the slipway has been approved and work will start in due course. The estimated date of completion is 30-11-08. The slipway will be closed during the construction.

KOUGA RATES

At a meeting with Kouga Municipality the following information was obtained: Kouga still have to revalue at market value next year, as Port Elizabeth has done this year. Only 29 homeowners currently appear on the valuation roll. The rebates on the old valuations are acceptable, but may not be acceptable on the new market related valuations next year. We will at that stage, see what rebates they offer and object if necessary. Homeowners will have to put in their own objections if they are not happy with the new market related values next year. At present they are in the phasing in stage. In a nutshell the following points are relevant: 1. We have the valuation roll and can give homeowners their valuations.2. The current tariff is 1.462c in the rand. 3. There is a phasing in discount over 3 years. I.e. 75% in year 1. 50% in year 2. And 25% in year 3. 4. We have presently been given a 30% rebate for services not offered. 5. We have advised homeowners to pay under protest, and to reserve the right to challenge and renegotiate the 30% rebate in the future. 6. Implementation of rates by Kouga is seen by them as being a tax, with no impact upon levies. If you have received a rates account you should pay it. Write Kouga a covering letter to inform them that you are paying under protest and that you reserve the right to challenge the 30% rebate given for services not offered. This in the future. This negotiation to take place under the auspices of the Homeowners Association’s Board representing all 449 Homeowners. If you have not taken transfer of your property from Gamtoos Mouth Investments and they receive your rates account, they will pay it and debit your loan account to recover the expenses paid on your behalf.

BEACH CLEAN-UP

Thirteen people attended the Beach Clean-up operation. An owner from Holland, Mr Van Roeden, and Mark and Melissa Willemse from phase 1 joined us. Remember all homeowners are welcome. We always need more hands. Afterwards we enjoyed bacon and egg burgers, coffee, tea and toast. Thanks to Pieter De Beer. Also thank you to Salome for her marmalade.


ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE

Mark Willemse is the new chairman and he is very enthusiastic. Please support him. Remember that the Nursery is in full swing.

GRUNTER'S GREEN BONFIRE REFERENDUM

Results of the Bonfire referendum. The Pro Bonfire homeowners in favor won. Those in favor - 28 votes. Those against - 13 votes. The New Year’s Eve Bonfire will be allowed to continue under the strict supervision of Zane Hayes (Director) and some Firefighting team members. The people holding the Bonfire must clean up the remains the following day.


LEVY ACCOUNTS

Statements are only rendered after each water reading, which is done every three months. Monthly accounts are not sent out, with the aim of keeping the levy down, as postage and administrative costs are expensive when running a Development as large as Gamtoos Mouth Resort. By keeping the costs down over the past years we have been able to keep levy increases down to a minimum. Levies are now R100 per month. Levies are due on the 1st of each month, in advance, and unless these monies are forthcoming on a regular monthly basis, it becomes extremely difficult to conduct the affairs of the Homeowners Association. There are amounts to be paid each month whether or not the owners are paying their levy accounts. It is also extremely unfair to place the burden of meeting such costs, on those homeowners who pay their levies regularly. Non-payment results in the funds of the Homeowners Account being depleted. Please settle this account immediately and continue to pay regularly.

Consider using the debit order facility. You will not have to incur any cost, and your account will not fall in arrears.

ALGEMEEN


Baie dankie aan Manie Venter vir die sirene wat hy geskenk het. U sal nou dadelik hoor as daar ‘n brand is. Sarel Gerber het sy dank uitgespreek teenoor Stephaans vir die opgradering van die pad na die skeepshelling.

INTERESTING INFORMATION

Dirk and Liz Coetzee rescued a seagull. Walking the dogs along the beach and towards the river mouth our boxer dog came across a seagull struggling on the ground. We went to investigate and found that the seagull was entangled in fisherman’s gut and steel tracing wire. It also had a large hook through its beak and there was a red float attached to the line. Through all its struggling the steel trace and gut wrapped around its feet eventually pulling its beak with the hook approximately 4cm from its feet. Clearly it had very little chance of surviving. Painstakingly we removed the hook from its beak and untangled its feet from the steel trace and gut. This done the seagull took a few minutes to compose itself before flying off towards the river. One week later we came across another seagull also with a float and hook through its beak, but before we could get close enough to help it , it flew away.

We appeal to the fishermen to be very careful with their hooks and gut. People walking on the beach please pick up the hooks and gut lying around – it can save a seagull from a horrible death.
TEN SLOTTE DIE BOODSKAP VAN DIE HORLOSIE.

( vervolg ) 5 uur dui op die vyf vingers aan my hand, waarmee ek moet werk om eerlik my brood te verdien en vir die Here diensbaar te wees.6 uur sê vir my ek moet ses dae van die week werk en my pligte getrou na kom.7 uur sê vir my dat ek op die sewende dag moet rus en kerk toe gaan om vir die Here dankie te sê vir al Sy genade wat ek onverdiend ontvang, en om te luister na Sy boodskap.8 uur laat my dink aan die agt siele in Noag se ark wat in die sondvloed behoue gebly het : en net so sal ek behoue bly as ek in die Ark ( Jesus ) skuiling soek.

Renè Ons innige meegevoel aan Renè en haar familie met die dood van haar broer. Julle is in ons almal se gebede.
