The time for our annual Opskop has arrived!
Dop & Tjop
The first of our annual South African’s Camping weekend get together has a name… “OPSKOP!”
“Fellow South Africans, families and friends, en almal wat saak maak: Die tyd is hier. Die Suid-Afrikaanse partytjie vir die Britse Saffas. Ons weet ons het geen waarborg op die weer nie, maar ons het definitief tyd om te bring en braai en tuis te voel. Hierdie Naweek is vir julle, die Suid Afrikaaners van naby en verre! A weekend to remember where we can have a braai, play some music and let the children run wild! If you want to meet others like you that took the plunge and settled in the UK and wanna meet, with the heart of a lion and the blood of rainbow child, then this one is for you. The location is sought after and popular to the locals and those that know, and the logistics are being planned, so to make it work we need you to come! I’m thinking boats, watersports, tents food and klipdrift, and why not some Castle biere too. Bietjie music wat wir almal se smaak cater. Oh and biltong and boerewors with a few eggs in the morning and some mieliepap! SO mense, bring julle gesinne en kinders daar is baie om the doen and laat ons feesfier – you’ll need campstuff, headlights, and traintickets, as this event is in the planning we will keep you updated with the details and info on everything nearby – we are working on all sorts of options to accomodate and transport – we look forward to seeing you there! ”

The Official Tshirt
Opskop, directly translates into English as “Kick up” or “Knees up” but indirectly many South Africans will relate it to a “Big Party” which as you know, comes as part and parcel with getting together for a braai!
The organizers of this year’s “Opskop” have collaborated with Abracadabra Clothing to come up with an official unique keepsake Tshirt to commemorate the first annual event of South Africans getting together for a weekend camping Opskop. The theme of the 2016 get together is “Dop & Tjop” which translates to “Drink & Chop” which is what the camping weekend is all about, getting together, braaing some “Tjops”, having some “Dop’s,” enjoying some live entertainment, checking out the stalls of South African goods, and meeting new people, old, young, families, couples and singles!
So are they imported or what?
Abracadabra Clothing, based in London, is owned by a South African who will be onsite at the camping weekend selling an exciting range of South African themed Tshirts. Abracadabra Clothing aims to keep traditions and history alive by reproducing rare prints and designs on tshirts as collectables, or memorable keepsakes. Everything is designed and printed in London. #SupportLocalBusiness
Ok, so what is it?
This years Opskop keepsakes will be printed on round neck white 100% ultra cotton Tshirts, with a small version of the logo over the heart on the front, and a full size version on the back. Sizing on the day will be Small to XXL and numbers will be limited, so please register your interest early, so that extra can be printed and to avoid missing out! (please note that 3XL-5XL will be printed on a preorder only)
How much did you say?
On the Opskop 2016 weekend all Tshirts will be sold for £15 each
This year’s hash tag will be
