Kirstenbosch
  • FRA and BCRA support Kirstenbosch activities
  • Cliff Richard concert was a problem this year - ending late with high sound volumes
  • K does not want to exceed 2 International events per year
  • The number of nights for each (1 to 3) depends on bookings
  • Will try to start concerts at nightfall and end by 10pm
  • Sunday concerts irreducibly involve the following:
    • setting up begins after 10.30 on a Sunday
    • sound checks in the stage area between 12.20 and 2pm
    • Front of the house (full speaker) sound testing from 2pm to 3pm
    • Audience admitted at 3pm, concert from 5.30 to 6.30
    • Managers to ensure that concerts end on time

Cell Phone Coverage
  • Cell phone reception is still poor.
  • Permissions from the various authorities to approve a Vodacom cell phone mast on top of the Kirstenbosch research building is bogged down in bureaucracy and there has been little progress since last year despite this being raised again recently with Kirstenbosch management
  • MTN mast construction on private Bishops Court property similarly bogged down
