That we attended the Checkers Cheese Festival before your own….
That we had to make comparisons between the two – we tried hard not to
That we walked in with Great Expectations and paid a stupendous amount to fulfill said expectations
That we had to traipse through a damp marquee in search of some food and wine only to find everything on offer very hard to come by That we gave up with each attempt
That we eventually left the marquee hoping to find other forms of sustenance and entertainment on your Cricket Oval, and found nothing much.
For two free wine glasses that sadly went unused
For a free issue of an outdated Pick n Pay magazine
For a lovely walk through the vineyards, if one ignores the dust stirred up by 4x4s giving the less adventurous of spirit rides to the Cricket Oval
Checkers and everyone else involved with the excellent planning of your most generous, big-hearted Cheese Festival….Take a Bow.
Constantia – at some point, you will have to realize that sometimes it isn’t always only about location……….
