My most memorable forum moments .... it will take me forever to list them!

Just being part of the forum is for me the most memorable part of every day! And to be able to serve as a Forum Assistant is so satisfying! I enjoy every minute of it! :dance: :dance:

Meets and Greets .... those that I have attended were indeed memorable forum moments - meeting all those "old" and new friends! Superb! :D

Meeting Yellow Ribbons in the Parks! Simply unforgettable! :D

"Chatting" to all my forum friends on a daily basis - I won't be able to live without it! 8)

And so I can go on and on .... completely hooked on SANParks Forums! :thumbs_up:

Happy B-Day Forum!!

Most memorable about the forum.... :wall: like most said to many to mention!

Began when I was sitting 9800km's away from the most special place on earth- KNP. So sitting in a small town in Spain, longing home became worse until the day I joined this "funny" place. Became friends with so many special people, to many to mention.

Then the RATpack came along and from spain I became part of a bunch of guys who set out to do some fundraising for the guys protecting and maintaining this park we all love. Little did we know what we were going to experience!! :shock: For those here who hasn't read about our mission go look up the topic!

And then my first Cricket@Skukuza happened! And boy was it fun! Next year will be my 6th time attending this special gathering of friends from all around the small ball we all live on! And the past year's Cricket@Kgalagadi were one of the best experiences of my forum career! Seeing the determination and joy when the ladies of KTP trashed :redface: :roll: :twisted: our forum ladies, and then we as the Musketeers had to take a bow to the guys from KTP! :redface:

So what does the future hold? :doh: Whats my birthday wish for this forum?

That this place may bring as special and memorable moments to all who have joined and will join in future than it has to me. That we as a forum will continue to grow and have the effect it currently has, in regard to making a change to so many lives out there. The Kids @ the Parks Project, the funds raised for much needed equipment for our rangers and winning more awards like we did this year! This has been a remarkable year yes, but with so many dedicated Mods and members, a glass( or 2 :lol: )can be raised to the next year!

Wow so difficult to decide what is the most memorable moment?!?!?!?!? :hmz:

What I do remember was how confused I was when I just joined by all the virtual rangers?? What was that all about?? Little did I know how I would also become one as I got my different horns over the next few years!!

Then what I will remember forever was the day I met my first YR mite in Kruger.......Salamanda!!!

Then all the amazing time I spend on The Forum Logo!! Boy did I learn a lot during all those different processes!!

Last year being on the FAC, what a great time that was.

Moments I'll remember forever is those small ones where you lend that helping hand on how to post photos and you share the success!! Teaching mites all those little forum secrets like members list searches!!! So much fun!!!

And this because some people had the foresight 9 years ago!! Thank you!!! :gflower: :gflower: :gflower:

I'll never forget the day I got my first Kudu horn, I didn't notice but then Hugh told me my horn looked good, I was very puzzled, until she explained to me all about the kudu horns, only then did I see it and was so surprised and very excited about getting it :D

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This was a hard decision to make as there were quite a few heart-warming posts. Thank you to all of you who shared most memorable experiences. :k

But there can be one winner only, and in this case I would say it is the post made by Heksie.

Congratulations, Heksie! :gflower:

There are so many I've had through out theses years on the forum.
But I will always cherish SANParks' 8th birthday celebration @ Satara when we were on the webcam with our birthday wishes and yellow suits and not to forget the amounts of Amarula we celebrated with @ the restaurant with wonderful mites :w:
