Dankbaar posted a reply at his/her disappointment about not being at the cricket... or rather not being able to be at the cricket.

I am one of those very, very fortunate, sometimes cash strapped individuals who always makes it.. meets cricket.. whatever.

I feel very priveledged to be in that potition. (My account manager might feel differently) :wink: but that is another story.

My challenge is... how can cricket 2010 be more inclusive for those folks who cannot make it. Those very loyal folks who keep the forum ticking over.

Not a bad idea...
communal camping site, :hmz:

why could we not have a Sanparks communal prize..
and why can we not advertise this in some major magazines.. :hmz:

I do want to say, in terms of our out-reach, let's be wild.

Great idea MM Why not the Wild magazine, which has a fairly large circulation amongst SANParks fans?

Great idea of involving more people. I do however think that the emphasis should be on involving more people online. It is after all where this community live! So what can we do to make the cricket more accessible to those in the USA, Australia, and yes Bloemfontein :twisted: ... who cannot make it because of other reasons?

Imberbe, I do often wonder how people feel and how we could bring them in.

I know that there are some who could never be there, but who might be our best supporters...

and there are those... the camping, scrappy, individuals... who might be happy to form part of a Sanparks "Scrap club" :roll:

those horrible folks who need to share accomodation... be the ultimate camp rodents... you know.. the cute things with tails and intent.

Spookie, read my mind...

thing is, how do we make it as inclusive as possible..?

oh dear and Bloemies :lol: :lol:

you know that Bloemies has to explain their existance...
just because they have a good university, Spookie and Christo :hmz: thay think that they have a spot of speciality.

If Bloemies want a special site, they need to prove that they deserve it :wink:

A great idea to involve more mites :clap: :clap: And I do agree with Imberbe - it would be wonderful to bring more of the fun and participation to those who attend 'online'.

If forumites would like to look at joining up into a group to share costs, why not send a PM to a central person who can keep a data base and then perhaps link up folk from different areas?

I think the MAIN consideration is transport when it comes to the less fortunate people.

Therefore, inspired by Jumbo's idea and example with regards to the Piano Saga I was thinking about the following: (Sawubona, don't chupp me :twisted: )

Maybe we must make a list so that people who travel to Kruger for the Cricket etc, and who have extra space (in their cars) and who are willing to take those with who can't pay. Sort of a carpool idea.

Or we can make an account for donations with regards to petrol money. Just to show that my evil mind is NOT suggesting this for self benefit, I vow to NOT make use of this suggested system, IF it's a good idea at all.

Obviously, we need the cooperation and full consent to those who have nominated themselves.

A few problems:
1. There will be faaaar more on the 'want to come along' list than people who nominated to take 1 or 2 persons extra with. Therefore I would suggest a shortlist, to be voted my members of the forum.

2. We are working with the internet, unknown people etc, and therefore on a trust basis. How do we know who to trust, and prevent 'scammers' ans safety considerations? Things to think about.... Suggestions are welcome

3. Maybe we should include references, and recommendations of fellow formites, to make sure this system is not abused.

4. Liability: Forms should come along, excluding any liability with regards to personal injury, loss of property etc. Pure necessity for those willingly to take others along.

5. Due to the fact that this suggestion is based on trust, mutual coopertaion and unknows personalities and habits, maybe a 'pre-meet' should be arranged in Dec 2009, to get the parties together and in better harmony.

6. ALL personal details of both parties should be kept with the eg. Mods, and there should also be some sort of verification thereof.

Finally, this might be a good but impractical idea, therefore it's just a suggestion!! Let me hear what you think. :thumbs_up:

You all have wonderful ideas, can you please think of a brillant plan to get (those of us you wants to go) bosses to give us leave. I only get 3 weeks in December and all the wonderful things is allways happening during the year so its a NO from my boss as soon as I ask for a few days during the year. :cry:
