Here's a link to some photos I took this weekend at Al Thandiwe Shooting Club. Enjoy.

The Saturday scores were abysmal, save for a couple respectable scores. The wind was very gusty. I shot poorly, but had a good time anyway.

Ed, it is a South African dish called "poikie." A lot like a stew, cooked in a cast iron covered pot, sitting on hot coals. I'm no cook, but I'm told there is a timing to when you put in the onions, other vegetables, and the meat. Really good stuff. Chicken or beef, or just about any meat can be made into poikie.

Looks like a great shoot, my only question is, what's that cooking in the pot?

Might have been the shooter with the lowest score, kinda like DEAD last and finished.

LOL hotwater.

Actually, that whole thing is a myth.

But whatever direction they were spinning this weekend, I was having a heck of a time hitting them.

Hey Tim, lets do an experiment, fill up a wash basin and pull the plug. Please report back if the swirl is clockwise or counter clockwise.

Always great to see your pictures from all over Africa--- Tim. Better Luck on the next one. That cast iron pot dish looks a lot like our pot roast type dinners. First the meat and water, then the other items at different times so they are all fully cooked at the same time. Dang, now I'm hungry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Break em all.

Jason,

I have plenty of sinks in my house. Some spin one way. Some spin the other way. Trust me, I've checked, LOL.

The old wives' tale is a myth.

Tim,

Thanks for the response. I really thought that it was a fact due to the rotation of the earth, the swirl would be counter clockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern.

Looks like I may need to pay closer attention. It is interesting that you have seen the water spin both ways.
