And then there were the injuries:

Vlakvarksegat ... he took a might fall on the field, broke his ribs he says :| But I think he is going to live to tell the tale, we were in the unit next to him and his beautiful SO, and she did pamper him to the point he seemed to be recovering very well :dance:

And then Gabby and Lesego did it again this year ... sorry only pics of Gabby's injury for you guys :wink:

The last of the pics I have:

The Gala evening was stunning. To arrive at the hangar in a game viewing truck, enjoy the setting sun sipping a sherry outside and then be treated to a Nama dance by a gorgeous group of school children = priceless.

The food was delish, the music great, the speeches inspiring ... and to see the appreciation and excitement of the winners of the medals and trophies, made it all such a memorable evening.

Those setting were very good, and each guest received a mug with the Sanparks Logo and Kglalgadi 2013 written on it . I was not sure which knife to use when and with three glasses they expected you to drink lots ,, The waitresses who were all from the community did a sterling job and looked really smart .thanks Ladies

Wow, thanks for posting all those pics DB, I almost felt as though I were there and out on the red sand in the heat and the wonderful atmosphere (wish i could have been). The gal dinner looked superb and I love the table decorations and the way such creative use was made of what was available. Glad everyone is safely back and all had such a wonderful time.
