Hi Guys & Girls

Me and Catmatix is back from Kruger so we would like to attend too. But we're bankrupt so the night drive will have to take a backseat. (Will have to blame SO and the shops in Kruger for that… :shock: :wink: ) Would love to see al you guys there again!

I am going to have to give my apologies :(

My daughter is having to leave for Rhodes earlier than expected. Saturday is going to be a day of shopping and "goodbyes". She is leaving at the crack of dawn on Sunday.

I am really very sorry not to be there. :(

I wish you all a truly stunning day. I have such fond memries of our last Rietvlei meet and I hope this one will be every bit as enjoyable. :thumbs_up: Just to jog the memory, we saw Serval, Cheetah, Porcupine, owls, night heron.. and... and.. and .. on our night drive.

Had a lovely lunch at the meet at Reitvleis...it was wonderful to see the Prings again and to catch up with old friends and meet lots of new ones.

Thanks to Mads for organising the Lapa and the wood fire was really great....I think thanks are due to the 'Friends of Reitvleis' for that!

Sorry we couldn't stay longer but the sport was calling my SO...( Tour de France, Cricket etc etc and he had missed the Rugby :whistle: )

The turnout was fantastic and I could have chatted all day!!

Many photos were taken, we had a huge bonfire, super braai, lots of chats and laughter, a magnificent drive with Mads, seeing cheetah, bush pigs, otters and other animals! :clap: :clap:

Theuns, a special thank you to you and Elzet for initiating this meet. It was super-great making so many new friends. :clap: :clap: Thank you for posting some pics. :cam: :dance:

What a priviledge to meet the Prings - enjoy the remainder of your stay and looking forward to visiting again next year. :D

The question of what encouraged Dolf to pitch has been solved after having us on for weeks :doh:

Although this is my first "big" meet, it certainly won't be the last! :D

Thank you Mads for organizing the venue & drives. Then also thanks to all the peeps that arrived, a good meet is impossible without good people and this meet was good.

David next meet is hopefully after the world cup so we can get our own back, and show you what the Webb Ellis trophy looks like when it is won for the 3rd time by a country. :tongue: :lol: :lol: was great meeting you guys again and this time getting to spend more than a fleeting chat. :thumbs_up:
