Braai wood/fires will be provided as will salads.

For those not familiar with Waterkant - it is near the Selati. There is a lovely lawn area in the front of the house that runs next to the fence along the river.

Please note that the venue for the Saturday night function is indeed going to be the Golf Club - with thanks to a special angel in Skukuza! :clap:

I would also like to urge everyone to make an effort to get to the Skukuza Cricket Club as early as they can on the Friday to join in the fun there :dance:

Please note the following :

The following projects which are raising funds for anti poaching, the theme for the weekend.

- Silent Auction - bring some cookies (baked ones, not those on your pc :wink: ) and other smaller items as nothing is too small, and every cent counts!

- And then we need to make sure this happens :twisted: (or not!!) The Mankini Effect!

There is also going to be a fun match ... the forum team for this will be captained by Cat Woman .... and players will be selected in a unique manner. Watch the forums for when this process begins :twisted:

To those who are playing, or which to play in the 'serious' matches - please respond to the topics by the captains, such as this one - Tip and Confirmation

Just a reminder, and for those who will be attending the event for the first time:

Dress code for the Saturday evening is Kruger Smart Casual - so no slops, t/shirts, shorts - open neck shirts and smartish slacks/jeans for men; ladies - you always know what to wear :D

Basically not over the top, like ball gowns, but smarter than one normally wears around the braai fire in the park.

Please note that there will be a selection of Stiffnecks stuff (caps, beanies, scarves, badges & bumper stickers) available for sale at the cricket. The usual 25% goes to VHR projects like anti rhino poaching.

Please contact Bush Baptist for any further info.

Dear Colleagues

Just to inform you that we have spoken with Frikkie and he updated us that they have tried to cover the cricket field so that it is not flooded.

However, last night the rain was heavy and therefore the lawn is wet, but they will continue to try to cover it with some kind of wooden flooring. According to the weather report the rain will clear on Saturday.

@Dalene if you could please update the forum members.


Kind Regards

Dear all

We can arrange and organize a lot of things, but not the weather.

Currently the cricket outfield and pitch is soaked although we had the pitch covered since Monday, last night’s storm actually caused the damage and water streamed in under the pitch covers. We will not be able to dry it out before Friday as it is still raining on and off and the forecast is rain until Saturday.

As a last resort we will try and obtain a cricket carpet pitch and try and lay it out next to the pitch. So all is not lost we should be able to get in some play (weather permitting) although it will not be on the normal pitch.

I will keep you posted.


Regards

Good morning everybody

Just a bit off follow up news on the weather situation in Skukuza.

We had serious rain last night. All the rivers around Skukuza are in flood. Concerning the cricket field, it is currently a swamp. If weather continues to be like this, cricket will not be possible. Let’s hope it subsides a bit today in order for the grounds man to make something of it. We had the pitch covered again last night and the best part of yesterday, but the hard rain again found it’s way in underneath the covers.

Regards
