This is my beeeeg thank you

What a lovely day :D but without the goodwill of everyone and the help of some very able and special people, it would not have gone off as well as it did.

My first thank you is to some one who was not even there.
Muhammed donated a very generous collection of gifts for a lucky draw. He did suggest that Batmad be given something, as he has been such asset to the forum.
It was decided between a group of busy little :angel: :angel: :angel: that Batmad should receive a quality Leatherman. Enjoy it, Batmad, you deserve it.
It was also decided that the lovely pair of binoculars be donated to the rangers, as they had sent out an SOS about their critical shortage.
That left a lovely tool set, one even MM would have :dance: :dance: for and 2 quality camping mugs for our draw on the day.
DB and Zaks did explain the sitation about the binos and everyone seemed very happy with the idea.

A beeeg thank you to Sharifa and SO another Muhommed. I would never have managed without you. Not only that, you went way beyond the requirements asked.
Your Briyani was to die for, the chocolate pudding goes beyond words. Most of all though, you both just ably and willingly set about making this a success.
You might not have noticed, but at some point, my son appeared like a shadow, took one look at the pudding, dived in and disappeared like a shadow.
He was still sitting with a big smile his face hours later.

Cherries
you came in and transformed the place from an empty room to a happy setting. You also brought such a cheerful attitude, that the room just lit up.

Ndloti
for your prearranging of furniture and helping with the braai. I certainly know that had you not been there, I would have been eating some very spicy cinders.

Zaks, DB and Hawk it was very special to have you around bringing your unique brand of hospitality. Zaks, now you have really entered the heart of the Gauties home.

To the Ratpack for their life and enthusiasm. Great to see you guys there. Now I am really looking forward to the forumdales :wink:

To everyone for their goodwill and friendliness. The oldies took in the newbies and by hometime, it was smiles all around.

Lets give ourselves a round of applause.

Great meet, thanks to MM for hosting, it was an ideal venue.

Good to meet so many new faces and to catch up with familiar ones.
The next 24 days to the cricket will drag, but can't wait.

Sound like you all had a good time. I'm only sorry I had to drop out at the last minute- work went crazy last week and we had to play "catch up " all weekend :(
