Great suggestion
And if KTP is still to far from the Cape why not use a SANparks closer by with facilities

As we have already booked accommodation in Phala beg Nov- beg March, a trip to KTP after that would not be an option.............it would have fitted in very well for us to continue to have the cricket in Kruger. :cry:

Oh well we will just have to wait until it comes back!! :whistle:

Val, remember, this has not been decided yet, so cast your vote and we can work from there. There is always a plan to be made if you really want to go. :thumbs_up:

Cricket in Skuks is not an event any more, it is a tradition. It has grown from a wild idea to the huge sucess of the last event. Rugby in redsands sounds good as long as it is later in the year.

I will help either way but KTP in marc, I can not attend.

Being a teacher and only allowed taking leave in school holidays I already have to stand on my knees and beg for one extra day. If the cricket is in KTP I would have to take at least 4 (preferably a few more to actually get to see the park) which would be impossible for this time of year...
If it is decided to have it there I will just have to be patient and wait for it to return to Skukuza...

Will keep our fingers crossed then!!! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

It isn't that we don't understand that people living nearer to KTP would prefer that as a venue, but on a personal level it would not suit us. :dance: :dance:
