Thank you to our....
Sponsors, Exhibitors, Competitors and Spectators!
who attended our 15th Annual Summerhill 4x4 Family & Fun Day and Expo 2014!
The extremely popular event is the highlight of the local 4x4 community and is not to be missed by anyone interested in this fast growing action sport. Of all the 4x4 events in the area, this one is surely the king of entertainment, and attracted more than 2500 people last year - greater numbers are expected this year after last year’s highly successful and attractive event.
For those who have not been involved in the past, here is a brief background of the event hosted by Summerhill Preparatory School: Our school is a self-funded, multi racial, pre-primary and preparatory independent school situated just outside Hazyview on the Sabie road in Mpumalanga. The school operates as a community provider to the farming community, residential townships and surrounding rural area. The school was founded in 1998 by a group of concerned parents who realised that if they were to prepare and equip their children with the skills necessary to succeed in the new South Africa, they would have to create a facility which would enable these goals to be achieved. A property was donated and the school buildings erected by the parents. A spectacular sports field and tennis court has been built from previous fundraisers, however the school is growing and we are planning future developments! An IT centre and new classrooms form part of the proposed upgrades of the school’s facilities.
This annual event has inspired the ongoing success and development of this independent school. This well-known fun day and Expo attracts contestants, spectators, sponsors and exhibitors from all over Mpumalanga, especially Nelspruit, White River, Sabie, Lydenburg and even as far afield as Gauteng.
To make an event like this possible we have to rely on sponsors, and by the nature of the event, each sponsor is offered an excellent, far reaching marketing platform to expose their brand as well as their products to a wide spectrum of the community interested in motoring, agriculture and outdoor activities. Exhibition space is allocated according to sponsor’s requirements.
The main attraction to competitors and spectators is the custom built 4x4 obstacle course, which consists of eight competitive obstacles and a mud bath showstopper. The course is designed to accommodate six different classes to be tested in a fun and safe environment (Short Wheel Base, Long Wheel Base, Modified Short Wheel Base, Modified Long Wheel Base, Special Vehicles and Fun Bugs). Fantastic Prizes can be won by the winners of these classes, as well as for other classes like Best Co-driver, Ladies Driver and Best Exhibitor. A host of other attractions promises to entertain the whole family for the day and include a diverse range of outdoor exhibits, beer tent, food stalls, market stalls and a variety of safe activities for children of all ages. The day rounds off with prize giving, dinner and musical entertainment for the survivors.
