To Nedret - always the one to thank everyone, we must thank you too for ALL you do and did, to make this event a success. :gflower: :gflower:

I do not think there is a single forum member or person who attended the event who has not come away loving Nedret.

I concur with those sentiments. This was a function with heart. It is difficult to explain what it meant. Maybe just because it was not just about ourselves. It was a celebration of community.

It certainly was. We were all 'one' at this event. One with SANParks, one with the forum members, one with the community. The spirit over all three days was amazing. I believe this past event has changed the face of Cricket events for the future.

It was a fantastic weekend and a real pleasure to meet so many lovely 'mites.
:congrats: to all who helped organise the event.
For us, the best part was watching the children and local people enjoying themselves with such enthusiasm. Not a stiff upper lip in sight! :wink:
Wonderful! :clap: :clap: :clap:
