I will never forget the wonderful WONDERFUL event that was the "Cricket at Kgalagadi " ......

Image

and my favourite photo of the whole week ..... :twisted: :twisted:

Jannie, I truly am humbled by your guys dedication and your vision and passion for those less fortunate than we are and am in awe of the magnitude of what you guys achieved, not only for the Kgalagadi but most importantly for the local community and the people of Welkom - I know how much work went into this and the hours spent planning and building and organizing and all the extra overtime worked to the detriment of your families - you are all absolutely amazing and I hope you know how grateful and appreciative I am of you all ... Jannie, you promised us all a wonderful event that we would never forget, you promised us that KTP would do SANParks proud - and you were right !!

Thank you to all my precious friends and family at KTP for your love and friendship - thank you for allowing me to be a small part of this incredible adventure. I will treasure these memories for ever .....

You guys are all my heroes ...

Oh and in case anyone wants to know, here are the scores :

Day One
KTP Ladies – 16/6 vs Forum Ladies – 17/4
Forum Men – 150/6 vs Welkom Men – 121/10
KTP Men – 139/8 vs GGHNP – 44/10

Only a pleasure MM, it's been wonderful for me to re-live it all once again through some of my photos - and I couldn't agree with you more - well said :gflower: There was a feeling of something special and GOOD happening the whole weekend wasn't there ...

Russ commented to me at the Gala evening on Saturday about the wonderful atmosphere in the hangar too - how genuinely and spontaneously happy appreciative everyone was there - all the clapping and cheering for the other teams and the generosity of spirit - he was seriously impressed :thumbs_up:

It was one of those times that will be talked about for as long as we are around - it was Cricket @ Kgalagadi ..... IT WAS AWESOME :great: :great:

Hi Scouter, thank you so much for the report and photos. I am back at work at Pongola with very limited internet access. I cannot view the photos as our firewall at work blocks photobucket :( As soon as I have my home computer up and running I will revisit this report. It was such a pleasure to meet you and thank you so much for the photos you took at our wedding. It was truly a wonderful experience made possible by Jannie, Dupel, restaurant staff and so many others that I will thank personally. Thanks to Mgoddard for coordinating the wedding and click click for the photos. The cricket was an experience we will remember for the rest of our days with fond memories of old and new friends.
You are younger today than you ever will be again. Make use of it for the sake of tomorrow.
