How many mites have you met in person?

Unread postby bert » Mon Nov 21, 2005 8:30 pm

Now that the website is out of nannyhood it seems fitting to ask how many forumites have actually met each other in person

I have had the good fortune to meet a few dutchies and Cerinte from Belgium
Oumie in satara in 2005
In dec Simonb6 and some dutchies again.

We (Gwen & SO) have met forum members on different occasions the past year and all meets were a terrific succes.
The first meet was in Menlyn Park (July 05) where we met admin & SO, WTM & WTV & WTD and Jacov & Reinette & little ones. We met Jacov & Reinette & kids later in Kruger and had a lovely braai.
The second meet was in East London, where we met DinkyBird & Hawk. One day was much too short, so we'll have to come back :-D
The third meet was in Dordrecht, NL (September) where we met Bert & SO, DuQues, José, Cerinthe & friend, Madach & SO, Tamara & SO and where I met a bottle of whiskey too many.
I look forward to the next Dutch Meet in December and everyone we can meet in KNP in August 2006. :dance:

I have only met Wildtuinman in person but it seems that it did not make much of an impression on him as I'm not to be found in his list :redface:

Haven't met that many yet. Was a huge honour to meet Jose though. Meeting Madach and SO before their return to NL, and of course looking forward to meeting Meg and Arks if all goes well. 8)

Not sure but meeting Herman and family for a NY's Eve party at Shingwedzi (2004) may have been the first SANPforum meet? I think Yellow Ribbons had not been invented yet?

Apart from list above there are some others who have registered but never posted in the Forums.

Hey Bert,
What about the time we met in the park in June, our first YR. meeting.

Unfortunately we couldn't "portrude" so were not able to exchange hugs, but we did chat briefly while blocking the road!! :lol:
