Dear Forumites,

I am 2 days early - but I am just getting organised for the Cricket@Skukuza on Saturday, 12 March.

We will be blogging the matches here...so keep it locked on this topic!!!

Whoo hoo! Cricket@Skukuza 2011 is HERE!!! Thanks for starting this topic Mel - see you tomorrow!

Hi all from Skukuza, where at the moment one can only hear the sounds of the frogs in the pond and a lonely hyena calling in the distance.

Forum members have started arriving in the park, and some in the camp itself. Joekin is here at Olifants, so are Gerharddb and Pardus1028 who are at LS. Tshukudu and family are here, and I believe Michel and Lowveldboy are in the camping area. Jo and Barbs are also in the park.

Please keep a close watch on this topic for up to the minute report backs to you all; and will the mods please start a seperate topic where the webcam pics can be posted? This makes it much easier for the bloggers to post on this topic.

Due to the slow connection here in the park we ask that members do not send PMs to the bloggers on Saturday - they might just not be able to get round to answering them!

Please join us from wherever in the world you are and share in the fun of the 5th Cricket@Skukuza!
