Wow, that is indeed very very good news to see. :dance:
Well done to all who helped raise this money. :thumbs_up:
Of course the big question is, when can we expect the cam to be installed, sorry if I sound impatient. :redface: :roll:

May I just take this opportunity to thank each and everyone for their donation towards the cam. You guys and girls have really come together on this and it really is an honour to be part of the forum when I see how much we can all achieve here.

I've heard that the location and logistics has already been sorted .. so it's a matter of getting the cam and installing it. Provided nothing else happens .. "(hey, this camera location is in the African wilderness after all)," :lol:

And a few prayers that there is enough bandwidth for the cam...

Thank you to Wild@Heart for the all hard work he has done keeping tabs on the donations from the forum side as well as promoting the fund raising venture.

Thank you too to Santa for the work put in collecting the donations etc on SAN Park's side.

To all those who so generously donated the funds - you are the best!! Thank you so much. May you all get much enjoyment from the new cam.

To all those who were instrumental in making the cricket weekend happen and all those who put in so much effort to make it such a success - and this is everyone who attended and participated on line, a great big thank you too!!

This forum rocks :dance:

All involved in the new cam did a hell of a job.

I think there are more donations on it´s way at the moment, this will either mean a better camera or housing, new lines, or maybe even diverting it to another project.

We´ll find out....

Ok just to let you know... 42 Technology says as long as their contribution does not line someones pocket it can go to any project... Cam / cybertracker / otherworthy cause - It is all a pleasure for them :D So if needs be we can shift the 4000 around as is seen fit by those in charge...
