Check that mountain out bru

As we announced earlier this week we’re all going to head over to Hogshead at Rock Cottage on Saturday the 5th of October at 4pm to have a community meet up after a long day at rAge and you are all obviously invited.

Well our wheat grass, mountain loving, hipster friends in Cape Town are feeling a bit left out and are asking why we don’t love them as much as we love our JHB community. Well it’s because you drink wheat grass and think Helen Zille is the Queen. That and the fact that we, and rAge, are Joburg based.

But a few people have mentioned in the comments and on twitter that you’d be interested in having a Cape Town rAge meet up on the same day as well. So before we go out to find a venue and an organiser it was suggested that I ask you guys and girls if you’d be interested in having a meet up to put faces to names and beer to mouths?

Let us know in the comments what you think and where would be the ideal place to get together and then we can see what can be done.

[Update] Apparently Darryn thought this article was vague. If you are in JHB but are originally from Cape Town you can come to our event.. if you are in Cape Town and originally from no one cares.. you can go to the Cape Town event.

I don’t think it’s vague I think he’s stupid… but hey maybe you were stupid as well and now you know

          If you did it on e-filing and said “submitted by other means” then it’s not submitted. Other means is when you do it through the post or at SARS offices. And then refunds take long because that’s the penalty for not e-filling. E-filling refunds and mostly 48hrs.
