November Weekend or one day : Friday evening 24th  to Sunday midday 26th  at Lakeview Holiday Resort at  Klipdrif Dam.  It is J-U-S-T still in Gauteng Province.  Come for the weekend or just for the day.  It is about an hour and a half from Johannesburg on the N12 National Road. Directions: from Johannesburg: take the N12 towards Potchefstroom and about 40 kms past the Fochville turnoff  turn left at the sign for Klipdrif Dam.  The resort telephone number is 072 954-1088.   Please contact Joanie Beytell ** on cell 082 490 2832 or e-mail joaniebeytell@gmail.com to find out more about the venue.  We have booked a self-catering chalet (with electricity) which can accommodate 7 people at the Lakeview Holiday Resort in the reserve. Payment to be made to the Reserve on arrival at R200 pppn, or if you prefer to camp it is R60p/stand without electricity, R120p/stand with electricity. R30 p/person day visitor or R60 p/person overnight.  This looks like an absolutely wonderful and arachnologically unexplored area with wide open grassland, clumps of trees and of course the dam.  So come along. Join us for a great weekend away or just come for the day. Whichever you decide remember this is a self-catering weekend.

**If you were following The Spider Club Facebook page last year you will remember that Joanie is the lady who revived Angel the baboon spider that had been stung by a wasp.  Joanie has invited us to visit all 18 baboon spider burrows at their house!
