Good Morning everyone

The Weekend is here :dance: :dance: :dance: , aint that awesome news since it is 11 sleeps till Spargs is in Kruger and 12 till I am there.

I just realised that Cheetah's name is not on the list yet for some reason I thought he was coming. :redface: :wall:

Anyway simply cant wait.

Did everyone see The Proteas Bowl last night. It was simply amazing seeing them so pumped up, only if we held onto the catches, this game would be something else. Lets hope Steyn can come to the Party and we carry on the intensity.

Hi guys,

Just dropping by to say hi.

I've got two Kruger trips booked for the next two months.

I'm hopefully gonna be in Kruger on 21st and 22nd March and from the 26th April to the 7th May

Will anyone else be there during those times ?

Hope everyone is well.

Hi Everyone :hello:

Hope everyone is well and awesome. :) :D

Thans WAC. Will share all the pics after the cricket.

Hi Mohsin, that is awesome news, What camps will you be staying at as I am in Kruger more often than not but only between Punda and Shing can I be sighted, and I am a more common sighting in these areas than some of the other mammals.

Spargs it really was an awesome sporting weekend, awesome win by the Proteas.

For some reason I feel like Cheetah is using a disguise name on the List, just wonder if my feeling is right. It might just help him keep a low profile due to the Mankini Affect. :twisted: :whistle: :whistle: :mrgreen: :whistle:

Hi Guys

It was a great Cricket Week end :clap: :clap: :clap: Not even the rain could put a damper on it :mrgreen:

I understand why you couldn't make it this year Cheetah, how was RAMFest?

Sorry Kallis it was a pity, so many things to do and see in so little time :cry: I did watch you on the Cricket field though :clap: :clap: I kept missing you and Heksie :redface:

Kalis I believe you were one of the Lucky ones who got to see the Leopard and Wild Dogs on Saturday morning?

Dont worry Spargs, there is always next time.

Glad to hear the cricket was such a success :D

Spargs part of the reason I couldn't go was because I couldn't get off work at all on the Friday!
RAMfest was epic!!! In the mud mosh pits 8) I could go on for ages, but Killswitch Engage blew my mind! I rocked my face off and my back and neck were not OK the next day :lol:

Kallis well done on your wild dogs :clap: :clap: Will check out your TR! :D
