I want to nominate the following people for kudu's and I want to do it in a different way this time as the normal procedure and give them compliments at the same time. I also want them to know that I have voted for them as I feel that it is important that they see what positive influence they have on this forum.

I am sure I will miss out on someone, so please forgive me. But I have to make special mention on a few forumites I feel deserve some praise and compliments.

Candy's Style: You really have come of age with your birding and photography and I am very proud of you. Keep it going!

Batmad: Your enthusiasm and eagerness to learn is awesome. And what you bring to the table with regards to the Bat world is excellent. Can you please start some course in the bat topic to teach us more?

Johann: You really take awesome bird pictures. Keep 'em coming. How about some tips on bird photography?

Laine: You have a hidden photography gift. Please post more of your pictures and participate more in the birding section and in Kruger in general, please.

Pjw: You really contribute a great deal to this forum in various ways. Thanks for that.

The to Jenb, dotdan, Wild@Heart, Gamespotter, CuriousCanadian, Scipio, Richprins, Bennievis and others participating in light hearted banter and contributing to the fun side of this forum. You I salute!

Eish, Wtm...... :redface:
I would like to pay a complement right back at ya, Oom. Some days the forum just sits around, vegetating, than you show up. Thank you for all the threads you start, serious or nonsense, we all love them!
W@H.... where on earth have you been hiding?

May I please add: To ALL the Trip Report writers.
I never realized what enormous effort goes into writing a TR until I tried my hand at writing my own little one. Thanx for all the time and dedication that goes into sharing your experiences with us. Since reading the TR section, I've developed a real "lus" to get to all the other SANParks. I'm currently suffering from what I call "MN fever", it should actually be "Michele Nel, Arks, Dreamer, Wanderw, Liritma, Salva, AFRICAT, ingrid60, and, and..........fever" because just reading your TRs gave me a huge "lus" for KTP. I'm dreaming about the darn place, for goodness sakes! Thanx ya all! Because of you, I will be right at home on my first trip.

If you under 25, 'Oupa' would be better manners to call him :twisted:

You can call him Oom .. Thou, that might be a compliment to him .. I think he has long ago passed his "Oom" expiry date ...

I think it might be better to call him "Oudstes" :twisted:
