Hi All,

I am a new Forumite and been looking forward to a meet where we could get to know other bush lovers in CT, but unfortunately my daughter and grandchildren arrive from JHB that day and just couldnt be so rude as to just up and leave them :(

I really hope that this comes up again when we may get to meet up with you all.

Have a wonderful time.

Wanderw, thank you for arranging such a lovely meet. We really enjoyed ourselves, the 'vibe' of the evening was really lovely. What an awesome group of mites, each so passionate about the SANParks (and REALLY passionate about KTP :lol: )

It was good to catch up with old buddies and make some new :dance:

Gatita and Andries - travel safely tomorrow, enjoy your last day in CT and have a wonderful time in KTP.

Hope to/will be bumping into some of the others in KNP soon :wink:
