Hi all,

Further to the announcement, for the forumites that will not be able to attend for what ever reason, we will be setting up the webcam for the event.

At this point I am not sure what will be "broadcast" when, but while the cam is up - users will be able to access this from the normal webcam page.

Thanks

Apart from Scipio in a grass skirt, the rest of us need to be aware of dress code for the weekend :wink:

Friday night - very casual, we are in KNP after all :dance:

Saturday - if cricket shirts are handed out on Friday at the braai, please wear yours on Saturday.

Saturday evening - Kruger smart casual. No slops/t-shirts. We smarten up a bit, but keep in mind we are still in the bush. So golf shirts/open neck shirts/smartish shorts (not board shorts) or jeans/chinos type of thing for the guys; and for the ladies ... you will know what to wear :D :wink: Please PM me if I can help with further details.

If in doubt, rather dress a bit up, than down.
