Let me post a few before doing some real work (this is much better though)

Firstly the bets we did not make!

S100 BETS:

The following bets were not completed for one simple reason THERE IS NO LIFE ON THE S100

Yes there is some general wildlife (giraffe, zebra, impala, a few elephants and one rhino once. Even WTM Cardboard cut-outs have now been washed away! Other than that it is the most boring drive in the park and I hope that I don’t have to drive it again in a looooong time!

But I still ask that if we could not meet your bet please still consider making a donation! :pray:

leelee If any kitties are spotted
Joekin Caracal
Jakkalbessie LIT on the S100 (photo proof & GPS coordinates)
Bert Photo proof of Cheetah
P@M For every distinct Lion sighting per day
SaraF lion sighting
SaraF Cheetah sighting
SaraF leopard sighting
SaraF African wildcat sighting
SaraF serval sighting
Wild@heart Lion,Leopard,Cheetah with thumb in the photo
Wild@heart Serval, caracal with thumb in the photo
Hawk Spot any Cardboard cut-outs of WTM
Joekin Caracal
Nyala Any cat spotted
Gerharddb R50 Per Kudu sighting on S100 capped at R500
BillyF To spot a Steenbokkie on the S100

Animals sightings anywhere in the park
Xmantis Photo proof of Python - we got a Cobra though
Imberbe Photo of speculated Brown Hyena - Pure speculation
PJW photo in the gallery of shame showing a FIT breaking the rules at cat sighting - At all three our cat sightings people were very well behaved
Robyn Brown Sightings of any cats on the return drive on the H6 - Sadly none

Bets to be completed in the camp
Imax double Batmads bet if Zax joins Joe in the tree - We took pity on Zax, We could not let such a great Angel sit in fear in a tree (but i will still pay)
Moegaai Photo of tourist flashing us - Lots of talent, little action!

DB Photo of Rat Pack @ Zakiya's feet with rat outfit
Pwj R50 for pic of Rat Pack paying homage to Zax [kissing my spit n polish boots]
Zax R200 if you do the above satisfactorily first time round otherwise R10 fine to each of you for every Rat Pack member not doing it right
True musketeers and famous Rats bow to no one! But the rats will pay R100 each as forfeiture

Jakkalbessie If you see a rat during your trip (with proof off course) -Only rat we saw was Ratex our mascot
Jakkalbessie and another If 1 of you 'girls' dare to be in the photo with the rat -there is a photo of Ratex and Dotdan hiding in the car[/color]
Dotdan If any Duke Pack member joins the braai - Duke pack who?
Joekin Falling of chair - Well he fell of his bed, so he is off the hook, DD and i then need to pay up


Other Bets

Wacktazz For every traffic cop spotted and photo proof -We got the speed cameras but no cops! We did get some police men :hmz:

:shock: This has left me speechless!!!


Time to get serious here.
I am so proud of the Rat Pack; of their realising their dream from months ago ... to raise money for conservation and bring some fun to the forums.

Guys - what you have achieved is way past anyone's wildest dream. I salute you! And will honour my pledges regardless. You guys went to the Park at your own cost - let the rest of us now do our bit too!

I have a challenge to all those who pledged - support these guys, whether they managed to meet the challenge or not! They really have excelled in meeting the greatest and most important challenge of all, supporting conservation in our SANParks!! :clap: :clap:

Well done Ratties!

Of course all monies will be paid! We couldn't possibly let you go the Park and just enjoy yourselves for nothing!

You guys are great and I hope you are all coming to the Gauteng meet on 15 February!!

ps How do we pay?

Rats! Do you see what you lot started by refusing to bow down to an angel?? I sense a musketeer uprising on the forum as a result!

Pffft - nothing we angels cannot quell with minimal effort!
