About us

Published on 22 November 2014

Die Vaaldriehoektak bedien hoofsaaklik ‘n streek wat Henley-on-Klip, Meyerton, Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark, Sasolburg en Parys, met hul omliggende gebiede, insluit maar verwelkom ook lede van ander takke en nie-lede by ons aktiwiteite.

Sedert takstigting op 25 Oktober 1994 toe 53 lede aangesluit het, het die tak hom beywer vir diens aan sy lede met die gevolg dat daar vandag meer as 1 500 lede op ons ledelys verskyn. Die tak glo dat etiese jag opleiding en volgehoue skietoefening vereis en tans bied die tak sowat twintig skietdae per jaar aan, versprei tussen twee skietbane om die lede geriefliker te akkomodeer, verskeie opleidingskursusse wat insluit senior en junior jagskole vir toegewyde jagter en bekwame jagter status, toegewyde sportskiet status, baanbeampte status, herlaai van ammunissie en ander jagverwante kursusse. Vir die lede wat in haelgeweerskiet belangstel het ons toegang tot een van die beste haelgeweerbane in die land waar ons maandelikse haelgeweer skietdae plaasvind en waar daar van tyd tot tyd ook klinieke in haelgeweerskiet aangebied word.

On the social side, monthly members meetings where speakers are invited to address the members on various hunting related subjects are held together with an annual prize giving function which normally takes the form of a dinner/dance. An annual Rock Pigeon shoot during March each year is one of the highlights of the social and shooting calendar attracting some 100 guns from our area and the surrounding areas.

Since inception, the Vaal Triangle Branch has encouraged its members to bring in their trophies for recording and the annual trophy registration during September provides members with the opportunity to have their hunting trophies measured. Qualifying trophies are recorded in both the register of the Association and our local register which currently carries some 300 entries spread over some 30 species.

These activities are organised by a dedicated branch committee which, over the years, has grown from eight to twelve members, most of whom have served the Branch loyally for two or more terms of office.
