Past 2015 Events:
New year eve: 2015:
Similar as in London, the Voelkop fire works were spectacular - see video below - and the crowd of about 350 went mega to celebrate the new year.
2015 Oscar memories:
Besides the fore works, the annual Oscar events were awarded to these who managed to either contribute to the farm in terms of something substantial, of who managed to make some boo-boo during the year.

Christmas Lunch 2015:
Santa (photo left) arrived early on the 25th Christmas day on the farm. Tables were already set for lunch at 2PM.
Gave to me 12 days of Voelkop (as per Tom):
1) A gay boy stuck in a thorn tree.
2) Two moffies bitching.
3) Three cocks on twitching.
4) Four steam pots witching.
5) Five leather slings.
6) Six shooters shooting.
7) Seven barmen looting.
8) Eight dogs barking.
9) Nine oupa's farting.
10) Ten braais braaing.
11) Eleven drunkards crying.
12) Eighty friends eating Christmas dinner.
Unfortunately, it seems that on 20 December 2015 the pleasant festivities were disturbed by a member of the Ku Klux Klan, or was as it a ghost of a spurned lover and now taking revenge of anyone being unfaithful on the farm? Or could it be an ancestor being restless ?

October 30- November 1 (Oktober Beer Fest !)
The first Oktoberfest took place in October 12, 1810 as part of the wedding celebrations of Crown Prince Ludwig, who later became King Ludwig I of Germany (Saxen) and was celebrated in Bavaria (Münich).
The citizens of Münich were invited to join the festivities and typical as part of the German tradition, beer was consumed in huge quantities and ever since, this traditional event takes place every October and gefeiert (celebrated and enjoyed) by 16 million people in Münich alone – and the tradition was carried abroad to every country in the world, also to Voëlkop where for many years this is celebrated in form of one big party.
