4x4 Flower Power Challenge

4x4 Flower Power Challenge

Funky Fynbos Festival

In 2012 we recognised the need for financial support amongst Gansbaai residents. We started Flower Power; a team of 4x4 enthusiasts that wanted to raise funds for our local charities, Flower Valley Eco School was the first charity that benefited from our efforts.

I registered this as a Police project, as that is part of my SAPS portfolio. Over the first 3 years our event grew from 37 to 75 participating vehicles. We have since also raised funds for Uilkraal Neighbourhood Watch.

This year our appreciation and thanks goes to Overberg Medical Response. They fulfil a very necessary, but thankless need by supporting SAPS and the community. All funds raised will be donated to them.

Our aim is to provide value for money, fun and entertainment, whilst boosting some well-deserved charity financially.

We will provide 4x4 routes and obstacle courses on the day; perlemoen potjie and light meals will be available to keep everyone fuelled for fun. There will be a lot of kids’ entertainment which include train rides, jumping castle & a slide; and don’t miss out on the lucky draw.

This year we are focussing on the obstacle course at Strandskloof Caravan Park. In the past we catered more for the sightseeing off roader by providing them with a choice of 4 routes; but this year they will only be able to do that on Panorama. The petrol heads can come and play at Strandskloof instead. There will also be tickets available for a spit braai and socializing with the crew afterwards. We can’t wait to have a lekka Flower Power 4 x 4 jol with you!

Thank you for taking the time to consider our invitation. We hope to see you there. Last year we managed to get 75 nature and off road lovers with their vehicles, can we beat that this year? Please help us try!
