GRAAFF-REI­NET — Pa­trick Ma­zantsa­na was a fa­mi­li­ar fi­gu­re to ma­ny o­ver the y­e­ars on the streets of Graaff-rei­net, w­he­re he could of­ten be found sit­ting at a cor­ner with a dis­play of his in­tri­ca­te wi­re­work cards.

The cards ha­ve been po­pu­lar with lo­cals and tou­ris­ts a­li­ke, and ma­ny ha­ve found their way to farflung cor­ners of the wor­ld.

Tic­kets are on­ly R10 e­ach and can be boug­ht from Coun­try Mou­se in C­hurch S­treet.

The draw will ta­ke pla­ce on F­ri­day, De­cem­ber 22.
