Men’s Retreat: 28 Feb to 01 March

pan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>MULUNGUSHI  MENS  CHRISTIAN  RETREAT – 2014
 
This event is an opportunity for any man to come to Mulungushi Dam, near Kabwe, for a “Boys Toys” weekend. The toys there will be the ones we bring ourselves, so if you have fishing boats, ski boats, jetboats, offroad bikes, quadbikes, a parasail, BRING THEM!! The more toys we have, the more action-packed fun we can create.
 
Expect a weekend with a difference. Expect the chance to do something you may never have done before, like learn to water ski, slalom ski, cliff jumping, or even barefoot skiing. If you know how to do something cool or crazy, come along and show the others. There are also some wily fish around that can test your fishing skills, with due reward in time.
 
High  up one of the cliffs at the dam face, I have installed a safe platform in order to provide guys with the “Man or Mouse Challenge” – Who has the guts to jump to the water, 13.5m below, without getting hurt? This challenge is a great opportunity to do as fathers and sons together.
 
I have permission from the local senior headman for the quad bikers and off-road bikers to cut a trail into the bush provided they don`t destroy the villagers` crops etc.
 
Our guest speaker for the weekend is Kieran McClean and he will be sharing important stuff with us – like how to be better dads, husbands, friends….and plenty more – from a Christian perspective. These sessions will take a very small part of the day and will leave heaps for time for adventure, action, and eating.

Muna Singh – Zambia`s Rally Driving Champion – will be coming as well to share his story

Accommodation: There are a few chalets for hire at the dam. Please contact Fred on 0979685349 to book, but there are limited numbers, so I would imagine that most guys will be camping. Camping space is readily available. There are ablutions with hot water. There is also a swimming pool.
 
Food: You take care of yourself. Bring you own cooking utensils, gas braai, food and drinks etc – but you`re also welcome to support the bar at the club. Some braais and charcoal will be provided free of charge. There will be no official eating time so you`re welcome to eat 24/7. Generally there`s lots of meat and biltong and no vegetables.
 
Date: weekend officially begins on Friday morning 28th February . For those who can, please arrive on Thursday 27th Feb 2014 to set up camp.  Sunday morning (2nd March, 2014) is packdown time, ready to leave in the afternoon. It will be fine for guys to arrive on the Friday as well, but don’t expect us to wait.
 
Costs: Your biggest cost is to get to Mulungushi Dam. Once there, the daily gate fee is only KR 20 per person and the nightly tent fee also KR 20….even if you`re sharing a tent. Food is what you have brought, and fuel for the boats..

This weekend is also a great opportunity for guys to network and make business contacts – so bring your business cards please and advertise your business. Develop a network of friends and contacts. This weekend date was selected in consultation with farmers so as not to interfere with harvesting or planting times….so no excuses guys. Dads please bring your sons and have some fun together. Guys please bring cameras and video cameras – especially for those who will be jumping off the platform.
 
Please contact me on 0977573626 or on email: kbergfamily@gmail.com for any questions, suggestions and or directions to Mulungushi from Kabwe.  Remember: the more toys that you bring, the more fun we will have.
 
Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you at Mulungushi Dam.
 
Regards.
