Hi all,

Ok, I think I've found a nice venue for our second meet where we could make almost a day out of it with picnic and everything: Tree Haven It's about 45 minutes from Sandton, hope the distance is no too far for most?

I've got two possible dates: 15 or 22 May 2010. Let's vote and fix a day later this week so that we all can schedule for the day.

It is far away... :cry: , but I have a few 4x4 events, hiking and of course my Kgalagadi trip :dance: happening in the next couple of weekends, so I won't be able to make it before then.

So, fixed for the 29'th then?

It's a little far away to know exactly which day I could come. However, about a month before I should know.

Are you all still ready for the 29'th?? :dance:

There is a coffee shop and for photographers, it's R50 for half a day and R100 for a full day. I guess it will not be possible to be there very early to get the best light for our photos, but there's something else i want to discuss and touch on... :hmz:

So, who's comming?

The 29th May is great for me, SB! What is the R50/R100 for, btw?

I think R22 for adults at WSBG, Switchback.

Oh, so if you pay R50 per head (I suppose children are cheaper?) you can stay half a day, while R100 per head gets you a full day?

What can you see?
All 16 species of South African ducks
116 species of exotic ducks, geese and swans
Over 65 species of wild water birds that visit Treehaven regularly
4 Species of Flamingos
All 3 South African crane species, which form part of a captive breeding program, for release into the wild
Beautiful gardens and cascading water.
