Rookie - thank you SO much !! I think you hit it spot on with your present observations - cant really think of anything else except please keep them to a reasonable size - ie not an ENORMOUS truck thats the size of 2 or 3 "normal" presents .... we dont want the kids looking at their "normal" sized one wondering why the kid next to them got a massive one - if that makes sense !! I will get the lists from Jannie as soon as I can and then you can let me know if you'd like boys or girls or one of each and what ages you'd like and I PM you the details :thumbs_up:

GlynB - many thanks ! Have added you to the list - and yes, will probably need that space in your bakkie again if you dont mind - and this time I promise to put the presents in boxes that close :twisted:

MM - thank YOU ! Have put your name on the list too !!!

Ok so the count so far this morning is ................. 70 THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH !

:hmz: I thought this was a thread about a Christmas night drive........

Count me in again this year for 2 boys.

I have no plans to go to KTP this year (sadly) so I will need a 'courier'.

What are the ages?

Shoot ... hope I got it right and it WAS Bush Baptist but Im pretty sure it was - really awesome "Battleships and Cruisers" games - the ones where you have a grid and "fire" and sink each others boats ....... the guys thought they were amazing !!

Ok so am off to KTP at sparrows tomorrow morning to do 2 weeks of Kids in Parks - will try and get on the Forum when I'm at TR but might be out of touch for a while - don't panic if you dont hear from me ok :tongue: All is under control ...... :doh: :slap: :whistle:

Hi Rookie,

What luck you had. :thumbs_up: :mrgreen:

I looked for something that gave a bit of mental stimulation rather than just something to play with.

The other one was a game like Os and Xs where you had to get a row of your colour disks .

Hi there,

What we try and do is to see when we would be able to get all the kids at school, normally (like with Welkom school) we did the hand-out on the day the school closed. So I guess that would be the best time.

TO ALL OF YOU THANKS SO MUCH FOR PARTICIPATING YOU ARE THE BEST!! :clap: :dance: :clap: :dance:

We went shopping at our favourite toy shop and sponsored 6 instead of 2 like we said. :D

We got gifts within the price range for:

2 x Girls 8+
1 x Girl 7/8
3 x Boys 8+

We will drop them off with Jannie at Twee Rivieren. :D

We will be in KTP just before Christmas, and are flying Emirates. That means we have a baggage allowance of 60 (!) kilos in total.
So if there are Europeans who want to send some stuff over for the drive.... :whistle:

Hi All CT Mites

I will be leaving on Thursday 4th October 2012, heading up to KTP for 2 weeks.

Last year I was a courier for this drive, so if any Mites have any Christmas present donations and would like someone to get them there, please let me know and I will make a plan to get your donations.

GlynB
