Ok, so it IS time to get serious and Make A Difference!!!!

Unread postby Inyati » Thu Feb 11, 2010 7:10 pm

Hiya All...

In light of getting sucked into some threads and voicing opinions etc etc etc, I have decided that all finger pointing and critisism can be used positively. :whistle:
And let's be honest, we have all been on the "wrong" side of Sanparks or the Mods etc at some point while being on the forum.... :tongue:
IT IS TRUE BECAUSE WE ARE ALL SO PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR PARKS!!!! :huh:

So what I propose is this: (and I am sure it has been suggested before)

Let's make calanders and sell them in the Sanparks Shops, so Sanparks can create awareness of some of the "problems" they are facing?

So for instance, we can put together a "Calander of Shame", sell it and use the profits for creating more awareness of the rules? (A what not to do calander)?

We can compose a Birding Calander- Sell it to promote Birding in the parks.
A big five calander?
A "best camps/ cottage etc" calander.

All the entries I have seen in photographic compotitions are magnificent, and will easily make the "cut" for a truely brilliant calander....

All proceeds can be used to upgrade roads if needed, some signage, more "rules and regulations" material. All this type of material costs money, so why NOT?

What about anti-poaching training etc? What about diaries? Or postcards?
Surely someone on the forum has "connections" in the printing industry, where we can get a good deal?

Come on Forumites, let's get away from our "Virtual" offices and opinions and make a difference here? :thumbs_up:

I saw the link, but it is not talking about calenders :wink: But it would be a splendid idea! Somebody told me that we now have a team of real professionals called Virtual Honorary Rangers, it might be a job for them. We don't want them to sit around being bored, do we :wink:

Splendid suggestion :thumbs_up:
We are discussing your idea at the moment
But can not make any promises
We asked SANparks to make a calender from the winning entries from last year and
for various reasons it did not make it to the printers.

But its a new year, VHRs are installed , so we will give it another 100% :thumbs_up:

5 horns.. respek, my friend respek :naughty:

I realise, without having been a part of your Pond watch, that it was important to many folks.

I did not get my horns through being respektful, but by being honest, enthusiastic and sometimes difficult.

I will say, with utter respek, that I do not know what is going on.. I have just learnt that sometimes I need to stand back.. and sometimes I need to speak out.
