Looking forward to see you all there for an exciting forum get-together! :gflower:

I was just wondering .. what the "theme " of this cricket at skuks will be . I do hope something will be done to include the local non Sanparks communities like they did in KTP . It makes the local folk feel that they are not excluded from these sort of activities I am sure the "Welkom" village will remember the cricket for years to come

Great idea Hugh! :dance: :dance:

So sad that we are going to miss this cricket event as well! We'll keep February and April 2015 open, so that we can definitely attend the 2015 cricket event in March 2015! :thumbs_up:

Already booked Kruger for 2014
Aimed for the following weekend
And because of someone turning 60 in the weekend of the 8th( and coming to Kruger) its impossible to undo :wall:
So i will check out the braai area and kneel on the sacred cricket ground

Sorry you can't make it guys :/ No matter where it is the cricket is always special and it really gets better and better every year.

Every year you think that it cannot get better than this but every year you are surprised again and again.
Judging by the number of people who have booked already we are heading for a HUGE party this year :)

All I can say is try to come. Even last year I thought we wouldn't make it but we made a plan and went and we were not disappointed. Somehow with the cricket one never is.

It is by far the most fun thing I do every year ;) Ask anyone who has ever been and I am sure they will say the same thing :)

Bert - now who is supposed to drink beer with me? Just not the same without the Hollander there... I don't even drink beer but when you come I change my evil ways ;) - I will just have to meet up with you when you are down South in the Kruger :)
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!!!"
