Just got back to the tent after a lovely braai. So nice to see such a lot of YEAR outside! The lady next to us came up to me and asked who were all the people with these yellow ribbons on their cars.
Lovely to catch up with the old mites and meet some new ones.
Elzet we were warned before hand that they had just treated the pool so if you swim it is at your own risk. May just have been a deterrent to scare those prospective skinny dippers away! :tongue:

Bosbaba, a tent??!! Say what??!! In this heat??!! :shock: :big_eyes: :shock: :tongue:

YEAR? Am I missing something. There is a lot of YEAR outside? So when is there a lot of MONTHS, WEEKS, DAYS, HOURS, MINUTES, SECONDS outside? :hmz: :whistle: :lol: :lol: :tongue:

Bosbaba, treatment as in two crocs or one? :lol: :lol: :tongue: :tongue: Don't blame them though, probably was very afraid of a repeat of last year. :lol: :lol: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

YR... €*&# predictive text and auto correct! All sorted now. Years, months and days are back where they belong... On the calender for the auction! :lol:
Tent as in safari tent... Already up and waiting for you when you arrive. No sweat and as a bonus it comes with a real bed. :tongue:
I think it was two crocodiles one named chlorine and the other they weren't quite sure so they settled on chemicals... :hmz:

Had to leave on Friday but all being well will be there next year. Nice meeting you Lowveld Boy (3 times) lookes like he was following us around, you too Dinky Bird at lake panic (love to have had a good debate - we might have started on different pages but would have ended singing from the same hymn sheet) and Gunner on our way out. Hope a good time is had by all

Morning everyone *straight face*

Left the park now,and on our way back to the concrete jungle. But not driving as it is VERY difficult to even move my feel due to the stiff factor! Dammit I'm struggling to walk, move my arm or do anything regarding moving of body parts! It will be easier to count the places where it doesn't hurt! Eish!

Cricket@Skukuza 2011 were a big success as it could have been expected to be! There were some knocks and small things or 2 but still it was great! The games was great, the mingle and catching up with old friends awesome. The function of last night was interesting.

Thank you to all the people who made Cricket@skukuza another great one! All the planning departments and people working their asses off!

The guys of the teams- thank you, it was nice and great playing with you all again! Charl(fishbowl) congrats on the prizes! Well deserved man of the match!

Ok now to try and get out of the car for a breakfast........going to take a few minutes to get there though!

At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"
