Meet Crested Val in Melkbos

Unread postby p@m » Sun Aug 28, 2011 6:25 pm

Crested Val arrives in Cape Town on Spring Day -- Sept 1st :lol:

They are here for one night only before they start their journey to KTP via WCNP.

How about meeting them for supper at the Silver Bay Spur in Melkbos ? About 6.30ish for 7.

Please let me know how many of you will be able to make it as I need to book :thumbs_up:

P@m this is a lovely idea. Sadly we just live a bit too far away. But we will be popping in at the airport to welcome CV and SO :dance:

What a pity BB :cry: I know it is very short notice though :redface:
Never mind -- should you decide on a trip up to WCNP on Friday or Saturday, I sure Crested Val would enjoy some bird-watching pointers :whistle: :lol:

Not anymore, although not many call me a 'gent'.

Our dinner hosts postponed so I can make it. :dance: Maybe also SO.
