Ok, a very successful and happy meet was held last night at Penny's home.

Always so nice to meet new "Forum friends" and be able to put faces to names.

The Prings had a long drive up from EL and must have been very tired but were the epitome of friendliness and chatted on to all of us.

Some pics.

The delicious spread of food which was preceded by steaming bowls of Bobby's very tasty Thai Chick Soup.

Back row: Klystron, Wingman, Charming1, Scotty, David Pring, Charming1's SO, then Bob,
Middle Row: Lorraine Pring, Angus and his Mom Nurse Bev, Martial
Front Row: Brooke, Wingman's SO Sue, Penny, Elsa, Katie and Cameron.

and instead of Klystron it is now Tawny.
and the reason for the party!

Thanks so much to all those who attended, especially Nurse Bev who had quite a long drive.
and to all for the generous and tasty food so willingly supplied. :clap:

Thank you to Penny & Bob for hosting all of us last night. It was a very enjoyable evening, and it was great to meet the Guests of Honor and all the other forumites that were new to me. Thank you to Elsa for all the organisation - very much appreciated. Looking forward to the next one.

What a Great Evening - food, friends and fun...! What more could one ask for?
Penny and Bobby - thank you for your hospitality and generousity
Brenda and Dave, Steven, Andrew and Bev - thank you for all the co-ordination and preparation. The photo memento is superb!
Nurse Bev, Angus and Tyne - thank you for the great company and for travelling such a distance
The Amazing Prings - It was truly special to meet you and have such a warm, friendly evening. I hope you have a well deserved rest and wish you incredibly special sightings in the days to come!

(Last night my SO was not feeling well :( , hence his quietness, and this afternoon was put on a drip as he has encephailitis. He says he may have been quiet but he still had a really great time :D )

Look forward to future Dbn meets!

I had the privilege to meet the Prings this morning :dance: It was great spending time with them :D All too soon it was time for them to leave ... it is a 5 hours drive from RBay via Swaziland to Malelane gate. Thanks Prings Family, wishing you a wonderful time in Kruger!
