Next Friday, the forum needs to field a mixed cricket team. This is to take on a similar team from SANParks at 2pm.

The players in the more 'serious', or shall we say, longer, matches will need a break ... so what about us all putting together a team drawn of those who will be at Skukuza, with a little challenge or two as well to raise a few bucks for the fight against poaching.

The Forums Mixed Team will be Captained by .... Cat Woman, aka SANParks aka Nedret. :clap: :clap:

Seven years ago, two forum members strode out onto the Skukuza cricket pitch in the hot February sun to open the batting for the forum men's team, and as they say, the rest is history. One of these heroes was Dave, half of DavenJan. I would like to nominate Dave as supporter and advisor to Nedret for this match and to open the batting. All I ask is that Dave will open the batting in the same shirt he wore those 7 years ago. Dave do you accept this nomination?

Next I wish to nominate Ecojunkie - she who rewrote the rules of golf but pitching up with a set of clubs like no one had ever seen before. :lol: EJ - maybe this time, use a cricket bat :twisted: Do you accept this nomination?

To see the three above on the field, Hawk will donate R300 to the anti poaching cause (paid into the VHR bank account).

So ... who is next? You may even nominate yourself, a family member or fellow forum member. This is for the rhinos, and for fun! And let us 'dress up' our team too :twisted:

Hi everyone,

This is the other half of DavenJan, as long as you all look after my darling hubby, I'll match Hawk's R300.

The cricket ground has lots of wonderful memories for us both so I'm looking forward to making more!

See you all there.

Regards Jan.

Ok ... you bring the curlers then, and my hair is short, so might as well get a perm at the same time. And I dont have takkies, so will play in my slops .... and have to start an intensive training session :shock:
