The pristine Modderfontein Nature Reserve played host to the first ever Epicor 4x4x2 family day held on Saturday 15 August. Over 200 customers and partners enjoyed the action packed day out with family and friends. With temperatures in the late twenties, it could not have been a better Johannesburg winter’s day. Guests spent the day enjoying exclusive use of secure trails designed for running, walking, cycling or simply taking in the open space and fresh air.
Since the day was all about showing that Epicor is not just business inspired, it’s also lifestyle inspired, guests were encouraged to sample the newest cycling and off-road gear. The Complete Cyclist team was on hand to give professional advice to avid cyclists interested in testing new bikes. While the Land Rover Experience team had their vehicles ready for those wanting to put them through their paces on the Terapod.
The day’s events were coordinated under the watchful eye of the ever energetic master of ceremonies , Warrior Rick known for his motivating inserts at the Warrior Races. The crowd was entertained by the musical genius of Jacques Lagesse while they enjoyed a cold beer along with some delicious food as the afternoon sunk away. And for those who needed it, there was a professional physiotherapist on hand to help mend any aches and pains.
The concept of hosting the 4x4x2 lifestyle day came from a similar event held by cycling group, Complete Cyclist. As the popularity of cycling grows, it is fast replacing golf because of its family appeal. Rather than hosting a golf day, this family orientated event supported the move towards having a true work life balance, made possible by tools like Epicor ERP that helps people to work smarter rather than harder.
Located off Aberdeen Rd in Modderfontein, the Modderfontein Nature Reserve not only protects indigenous fauna and flora , it offers unspoilt open space within the urban fabric where visitors can come and enjoy its natural beauty without travelling too far from home.
The 275-hectare private park is the second-largest private park in Gauteng and includes portions of the Modderfontein Spruit, a number of dams, grassland and hills.
The Reserve is operated by the Endangered Wildlife Trust on behalf of Heartland Properties. The Modderfontein Conservation Society have had input into the area for many years now and are assisting with the establishment of the reserve.
