We could organise a get together in CT anyway Timbits, if you like.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

YES!!! I like very much :thumbs_up:

We'll be arriving from Upington early afternoon of September 16. We haven't booked our accommodation yet, but are thinking about the Holiday Inn on DeWaal Drive. We'll need to do laundry as soon as we arrive. We'll have the rest of the day and then 2 full days so we can get together during the day or evening, whatever works best for you.

I'm looking forward to this. :D

Morning everyone, thanks for you responce. I am not sure when this evening will take place as I would also like to arrange it so KG can attend and give us a talk on KTP as well. This will depend when he comes to CT again.

Responce has been very slow; was hoping for more interest.

Hi Shane...no I don't really know of a venue..but normally Scout halls can be rented for a nominal fee.
As regards the photographic outing..well it is just that ..a photographic outing. We meet at a chosen venue....maybe a place like Kirstenbosch....lends itself to birds/macro/landscapes. We walk around..photograph , chat , help..picnic..etc.
I think the only way to do something like this ..be it an outing or a talk is to set the date and then advertise it...and then people will respond...:)

BTW Shane are you Canon or Nikon man...:)

An outing sounds great .. if its Kirstenbosch for those that dont go out to work a Tuesday is the best ( pensioners are free!!!!)
Can I tag along ......I dont have a camera
Those meets also sound good .. just keep us informed
