Without the input of all those great forumites the mods would have had
a easy ride.
Luckily we have some work to attend to :thumbs_up:

I'm not starting a new topic for it since what I have to say fits here. I was very unsure about the cricket weekend. I know what groups of people are like. There are always group politics with this one not speaking to that one and making it hard for an outsider to fit in anywhere. So I went into the weekend with reservations. When we left on Monday I left with peace and a sense of Wow, what a weekend in my heart. There were no group politics, no silences as you approached a group, everybody spoke to everybody. The atmosphere was one of a huge group of friends getting together to have fun. I want to thank my fellow mites and mods and Sanparks staff for that. You made it the most enjoyable meet I've ever attended. 8)

GP - very true and good points you have made. Others have also commented and noticed that the cricket weekend was just one huge happy family. A testimony to how special our forum members are :clap: :clap:

I would like to add to that.

The cricket weekend was in many ways "a coming of age". I hesitated almost until the last few weeks before paying my dues and commiting myself to coming. It was not a good time to take "time off" work.. but I decided to take the plunge.

After a very happy weekend, I feel relaxed and content with my decision. I have made new friends and renewed old aquantances. It seems that each year, the organisors learn how to improve and allow for a smoother, more enjoyable experience.

I find that one of the more difficult things in life is dealing with disappointed expectations. We often build up images of how perfect things will be, then the human element brings us back down to earth.

This time, my expectations were exceeded. The warmth and laughter stayed with me long after I had wiped off the last of the Kruger soil.

Will I be back again?

Yes, yes, and yes again.
