Again it was an absolute pleasure hosting another meet....always such fun. These meets seem to get more and more raucous. Thanks to all for the wonderful contributions for the table...I never quite know where to start with all the yummy salads....and then yummy puddings on top of that.
Great to see the regulars again and so pleased to meet you
Rookie.:)
We are to West coast tomorrow...having another mini meet there :) :) :)

Hi everyone :thumbs_up:

As most of you know, Anna (Moose) is going to be in Cape Town for a little while as of next week - and I know she wants to meet up with everyone again so, in the abscence of our esteemed leader Caracal ( who is off to the unmentionable place for 3 weeks :mrgreen: ) I would like to propose a mini (or maxi) meet here at my place in Hout Bay on Friday night next week, the 22nd of April......

Please let me know if you can make it - I know Moose REALLY wants to see you guys again....

Shall we say the normal rules apply - bring stuff to braai and stuff to drink and something for the table to share ?? I will do the pudding as I promised Moose a Pavlova :tongue: and about 7pm ??

Hoping LOTS of you can make it ....

Will PM you guys the directions once you let me know who's coming :wink:

Good morning Cape Town 'mites - looks like the nice weather is eventually here - I am holding thumbs it LASTS as I have some very special people coming to visit and I'm praying for good weather for a while :pray:

The next Very Special Cape Town Meet to meet some very special vistors will be here in Hout Bay on Sunday 18th September - around 12.30 for 1ish - and in the normal CT 'mites style :

Braai (in the forest) - bring your chop(s) en dop and something for the communal table if you wouldn't mind :D

I could tell you who its for but it will be an awesome surprise - if you REALLY have to know before you commit yourself, send me a PM and I will let you in on the secret ( unless someone guesses already :tongue: ) If anyone needs directions to my place, give me a shout as well and I will PM you all the details and phone no's :thumbs_up:

Thank you sooo much Scouter :gflower: and SO :hands: for a tremendous Sunday braai... :clap: :clap: :clap:

Right from the introductions to so many Mites and SO's that I can't remember half of them :doh: , through the reminiscing with old acquaintances under the umbrellas in the rain while the fires were burning :D , listening to all the KTP tales while the meat was braaiing :big_eyes: , getting nibbles of information while eating meat, salads, mealie bread, strawberries and ice cream and amazing puddings :cam: , and finally ending in the usual communal gathering and discussing personal experiences while travelling in KTP :redface: :mrgreen: , was great fun :dance: :dance:

And it was great to meet the legendary Kgalagadi Guru and family.

Looking forward to the next one.

CT mites, don't forget I am heading up to KTP on the 29th of this month, so if there is anything for the Clothing Drive or Vanessa's School Project, send me a PM and I will get back to you.

Thanks to all from myself and Mari-AnneB

A BIG THANK YOU :clap:

Firstly I would like to thank Scouter for the invite to the CT Mites meet, it was so great to have met all of you. Scouter for hosting us for a week it was absolutely GREAT thanks so much, now your household can get back to normal :wink:
Vanessa, Stefan and I have been spoiled so much in and around CT it was indeed an experience.
The meet went very well and the 'second 'friends' meet' as well.

There is a forumite who doesnt want to be mentioned in Somerset West where we stayed over for our last night whom I also would like to thank for the hospitality.

I must say you CT mites know how to have a meet, to have at least 30 people who loves nature and KTP in one spot is just out of this world.

So from me and the family THANKS SO MUCH :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
