      Tokoloshe in the Bathroom !
      HeeHoo and I felt an irresistible urge to visit Hwange Game Reserve this weekend. It is something that happens every winter when the sun is toasty, the grass is high and golden, and the call of Africa stirs beckoningly in one's blood.
      Accompanied by two erstwhile game "spotters" we sallied forth to our very favourite place - Hwange Safari Lodge.
      The drive there from Bulawayo took a little over two hours and we arrived just in time for high tea overlooking the legendary Saflodge waterhole.
      There were impala, elephant, giraffe, baboons, guinea fowl and a Rowland Ward Kudu male with his harem.
      It was beguiling, there is nothing quite like a winter's afternoon overlooking an Hwange Pan.
      Every animal foray to a waterhole is a tiny exquisite cameo, and with binoculars and cameras, we could share in the joy known only to the genuine bush lover.
      The bird life was fascinating too, amongst which there were Buffalo Weavers building giant triple storied nests of vicious thorns (right over the hotel pool much to the chagrin of the gardener). And as the night fell there was the giant Eagle Owl doing his customary bedtime snack circuit under the floodlights overlooking the pan.
      SafLodge is a hundred bedroomed hotel right on the edge of Hwange Game Park, and sadly only ten of us sat down to dine that night. The staff were fabulous, smiling, welcoming, nothing was too much for them. The food was plain but certainly delicious and although the drinks were pricey, the tariff per person per night bed and breakfast is just $55.00 !!
      As far as we were concerned at that price the hotel should have been jam packed although we would love to keep it as our own secret little gem on the edge of one of the most fabulous game parks in the world.
      On our drive to the Nyamandhlovu Viewing platform, we noted that we were one of three cars in the park, such a tragedy when there is so much to see in such stunningly special surroundings.
      Within a few kilometers we had seen elephant, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, steenbok, warthog, zebra, wildebeest, jackal, loads more impala and kudu and surprisingly what looked like a vulture feeding on a dead Kori Bustard. The roads are not good further into the park, but apart from cats we saw all we needed to see from several pans very close to the lodge.
      Winter nights in Hwange are extremely cold, but a giant fire burnt in a pit on the lawn every night, and as the baboons ambled off to find a safe tree for the night, and the hapless guinea fowl streaked across the vlei for their last drink before roosting, the impala pronked happily in the dying rays of the sun, not knowing who would be safe from the night's predators.
      It was time to wrestle with the Tokoloshe in the bathroom (Zimbabwe plumbing is notoriously haphazard) and then we would return to our very favourite spot for sundowners and a delicious dinner. After dinner, no discos and movies, instead we would all listen contentedly to the night sounds.
      The sounds of the lion, the painted dogs, the bat-eared fox and the enchanting elephant rumbles, as they all settled down for an amazing night in the incredible Dete Vlei.

      FABULOUS BOOST FOR BULAWAYO AND ZIMBABWE HOCKEY !!
      The Khumalo Hockey Stadium was built in 1994 to host the Africa Games in 1995. That event was an outstanding success, due in no part to the excellent facilities. The stadium, at its prime, ranked amongst the best such facilities globally, and the President of the International Hockey Federation, during a visit to mark the centenary of hockey in Zimbabwe in 2000, noted that Bulawayo was an ideal venue for hosting international tournaments. During this period, the facility was attracting more international sportsmen and women, of all ages, than any other sporting facility in Bulawayo. Far from being a white elephant, as many had predicted, it was a facility that was put to good use by both adults and school children. Sadly after 2003 the stadium fell into disuse as the artificial carpet approached the end of its useful life, and no hockey was played there after 2005.
      We are pleased to advise you that on 31 May 2011 a contract was signed in Harare for the replacement of the artificial turf. The chosen supplier is Edelgrass based in The Netherlands; Edelgrass provided the original turf in 1994, but new technology has allowed them to supply an enhanced product for the Khumalo Hockey Stadium - returning it to one of the top hockey facilities globally. Taking into account the City's water concerns, the new "B" field will require no water to play on, whilst the new "A" field will require about 50% less than that previously used. In this way the KHS has reduced water consumption to 25% of the previous amounts - a considerable boost to the environment and the City. The new turf left the manufacturer on 9th June and is due in Bulawayo on the 16th July, with completion two weeks later.
      Part of the motivation for the repair of the stadium was the hosting by the Hockey Association of Zimbabwe of a major International Hockey Tournament, and the Africa Hockey Federation awarded Zimbabwe the right to host the Africa Olympic Qualifier in September 2011. The last major event hosted at the Khumalo Hockey Stadium was the Africa Cup of Nations in 2000. The hosting of this Olympic Qualifier is a major boost to not only Bulawayo, but to Zimbabwe as a whole.
      In addition to this event Zimbabwe will host the Southern African Three Nations Tournament in late August. This annual event brings together teams from U/14, U/16, U/18 and open from Namibia and Botswana.
      At the same time the Congress of the African Hockey Federation will be held in Bulawayo. These three events will bring much needed activity to our city hotels and boost the image of the City. Teams and delegates will arrive at the new JM Nkomo airport and play at a newly revamped stadium.
      The repair to the field irrigation system, the roof and other parts of the stadium are now moving forward. However, since that date, we already have a team of volunteers at the stadium clearing and cleaning, and have enjoyed resounding support from the City of Bulawayo.
      In regards to these tournaments, the Hockey Association is seeking significant sponsorship. Should you be able to sponsor please contact either the Matabeleland Hockey Board (President, Mr R Kendall-Ball 263 772 126 755 ) or the Hockey Association of Zimbabwe (President Mr K Kanyangara 263 773 430 470).
      Or e mail Gavin Stephens Gavin.Stephens@...
      Special sponsorship packages are available. Unfortunately we were unable to start promotion of these events until Government had signed the contract for the new artificial pitch.
      The Official Host of the Tournament is the Hockey Association of Zimbabwe, but the Matabeleland Hockey Board, as the local host, is embarking on various efforts to make this a success and showpiece for Bulawayo and Zimbabwe.

      2) NOTICES AND EVENTS

      THE EMBASSY OF SPAIN
      has the pleasure of delighting the audience with a concert by the classic duo, violinist Oleguer Beltr n Pallar s and violist Behrang Rassekhi. Both were members of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra and it was the framework within which Behrang Rassekhi and Oleguer Beltr n Pallar s first performed together on stage. They formed a close friendship and from that moment on they were artistically involved in parallel professional directions, exploring chamber music with an intensity and commitment that they were privileged to learn with the GM Youth Orchestra. They will play music by Martinu, Mozart, Michael Haydn and Handel-Halvorsen.

But there is a painful price to be paid for his quest for self-expression... "Grand, lucid and absorbing" [The Australian].
      Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]
      SPUD
      Thursday 23 June in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.30 p.m.
      "It's South Africa 1990. Two major events are about to happen. The release of Nelson Mandela and, more importantly, it's Spud Milton's first year at an lite boys' boarding school. Surrounded by boys with nicknames like Gecko, Rambo, Rain Man and Mad Dog, Spud has his hands full trying to adapt to his new home. Along the way, he takes his first tentative steps to manhood, armed with only his wits and his diary. He takes us from illegal night swimming to the red-hot furnace of the cricket pitch and also invites us into the mind of a boy struggling to come to terms with a strange new world, a boy whose eyes are being opened to love, friendship and complete insanity."
      Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

This spectacular production from the San Francisco Opera in 1988 stars Placido Domingo who celebrated his 70th birthday earlier this year and Shirley Verrett who died in November last year shortly before her 80th birthday.
      Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]
      THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL

Maltin's Movie Guide comments that "this absorbing historical drama is extremely well acted", and a further recommendation is that the script is by Peter Morgan who was also responsible for The Queen. It will be followed on 14 and 21 July by two films on Elizabeth I starring Cate Blanchett.

      3) ROSES AND RASPBERRIES
      Individual roses to the members of the Bulawayo Fire Brigade team who were out and about in the Riverside area on Tuesday 7 June 2011 .
      An official explained their objective :
      to identify land at risk from bush fires , and to carry out controlled burning where necessary .
      Twelve Firemen arrived on Thursday morning to do just that ,
      on a vulnerable property which is close to several thatched structures .
      This type of FORWARD PLANNING is very commendable .

      More roses to the City Of Bulawayo Department responsible for the clearing of Burns Avenue verges - a mammoth task !

      Roses
      What a week it has been for residents of Bulawayo. We have just experienced a week of virtually no power cuts! One or two outages occurred but these have been very brief. And it seems that there was no visiting dignitary, or Trade Fair which normally see us on full power for the period. Life has almost been normal again, and I am more than happy to transfer my my regular $40 a week spent on petrol for the generator to Z.E.S.A for their power provided. Regular power supplies would certainly be of great benefit to their income and give them much needed revenue. Keep it up Z.E.S.A - if you can do it for a week, why not more regularly?
      It is also worth mentioning the clean up of the cities arterial roads and verges, and increased momentum in patching potholes etc - this has not gone unnoticed. The much improved efforts of the council services goes a long way to restoring normality and the standards to which we were once accustomed, and life becomes more livable and more tolerable in our great city.
      The Bulawayo city council has always been superior to all other councils in Zimbabwe - lets keep it that way.

      MICHAEL NAICKER SHOW SUMMARY
      April 29th saw the final stop on the 'Fighting Back for Sean' Fundraising trio of events. The Michael Naicker show was a huge success - but not without its hiccups.
      Kevin Perkins (Michael Naicker to you and me) - kept things interesting by inadvertently missing his flight! With our hearts racing and with visions of mildly miffed Bulawayans finding this news most "un-funny" - we were extremely gratified to discover the Air Zimbabwe was in skies once again and could safely and timeously deliver our funny man to us.
      We have come to the realisation that fundraising for Sean Labuscagne is great for Bulawayo's water table!!J . As with the night golf event, the heavens opened just minutes after the gates did - but luckily it was just everyone's clothes that were dampened and not their spirits. We counted approximately 1200 people through the gates which was a fantastic turnout - if not a slightly soggy one!
      Local comedians, Clive and Nthando, lead us off with a little taste of some home-grown humour. They were closely followed by the star of the night - Kevin Perkins aka Michael Naicker. His unique style of comedy had the place in hysterics and so we took advantage of everyone's good spirits by auctioning a few paintings during the interval. It seems that our timing was impeccable as everyone's merry mood was directly reflected in their extremely generous bidding. Thank you to all the artists who donated their work and all the art lovers who bought them.
      Once all the jokes were finished, Frank Reynolds turned the music up and the laughter was replaced with dancing. The festivities continued deep into the night and stretched through into the early hours of the morning.
      The night was, once again, an overwhelming success and we would like to thank and acknowledge the following people and companies:

      BULAWAYO PUBLICITY ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER
      We have had remarks to the effect that the Association's offices should be spruced up as they were looking somewhat shabby. To this effect, Baobab Industries very kindly donated a teak table and three chairs for the reception area and C C Sales, TN Bank and Casmyn Mining donated the money to buy the paint for the walls. The offices are rented from the City Council, so their painters are doing most of the painting, particularly as the rains had damaged ceilings and some walls.
      A reminder that the Association now has its own Website which contains information on tourist outlets and accommodation in Bulawayo, some information and pictures on Zimbabwe tourist resorts as well as a Business Directory. We are sure you will find it most beneficial to be included in this Directory. Enquiries should be made to Mpi Ndebele at KRZMA World, email mpi@... and phone 077 5 547 271

      We would like to emphasize again that the Association's main purpose is to publicize and market Bulawayo as an important business and tourist destination, but it also must be pointed out that it is the work of the individual companies to market themselves as well and to support the Association, so that the region can be promoted as a whole for the benefit of all who live and work in it. It is vital that the Association remains operational as a focal point for visitors, both tourists and business people, as source of general information. Many members have very graciously donated cash and kind over and above their subscriptions for which the Association is extremely grateful. However, we value the contributions of all our members and thank you sincerely.
