We planned to be there around 12h00, but it seems like a good idea Heksie to be early and watch some birdies..

Hi every body,

it is less than 24 hours before our meet. Crested Val is on her way! Please indicate as Super Mongoose and Heksie have done, when you will be on Rietvlei tomorrow!!

My cell no is: 082 322 5639 is you have any questions or problems.

Remember the braai tomorrow afternoon is at the Tshukudu Lapa. It is next to the office at the main entrance (NOT the Angling area!)

For those on the night drive remember LOTS of warm clothes even if you think it is a very hot day!!!

I am SOOOOO looking forward to see you all!!! :dance: :dance: :hands:

Have fun, all, and think of poor old Pap melting in Dar Es Salaam. Heks, take kiekies for me, LOTS!! And give Tannie Val and Dungy a hug from the Paps.
