FROM Argentina, to Mexico, from Indian to traditional South African fare, there was certainly no shortage of a variety of
flavours represented at the 2017 annual potjiekos competition, hosted by the Hermannsburg Congregation at The Beehive last Saturday.
Once again, contestants did not disappoint. Not only did they produce an amazing array of pots, but the originality and
creativity of ideas in both their table display and team outfits was outstanding.
Fifteen pots were prepared, providing more than enough food for all with Hermannsburg’s Oompah Band adding to the German flavour by entertaining contestants and visitors in the afternoon.

Top honours for this year’s winning pot go to Jilly & the Jacks (Dieter Meyer and Greg and Jilly Hull), with Argentina (Pastor René Risch) coming second, and last year’s defending champs, Casa da Plenty (Liesel Minnaar and Tish van Rooyen) taking third place. The best stall award went to The Antiques, best spirit to Gourmet Queens and the best dressed went to the Rusty Riders, hotly contested by the Madams & Eves.

The organisers are grateful to The Beehive for providing the venue, as well as to prize donors - BA McKenzie Transport, Sun Sand Transport, Pidelta, Rhino Charcoal, Mascor John Deere, Country Nursery and family Rommelspacher, and to all contestants for making the day so amazing.
