Absolutely have to agree with Hugh and WanderW - what a fabulous meet. :dance: :dance:

Thanks so much to Scouter for the facility and the pavlova and the potato bake! :gflower: :gflower:

To all the other mites.....thank you for everything and for all the different contributions to the food. :clap: :clap:

So great to meet Astromat, Aaron and Lorena and Hugh and the real Hugh. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Wonder if Mooses' arrival will be another excuse to meet again! :hmz: :hmz: :twisted: :twisted:

So glad you all enjoyed it - it really was a great time and we LOVED having you all here - thankfully the weather was goreous too ( not like the last time :roll: ) .... So lovely to have the "new" mites with us too as well as the regulars .... and the cabin is up for grabs for the next meet - Gavin and Wannebe Nerd enjoyed it I think .... :whistle:

" Wonder if Mooses' arrival will be another excuse to meet again! " I think Moose is going directly up to KTP :( BUT the Bone Hunter and Mrs Bone Hunter are going to Kruger in a few weeks me thinks we will have to have another meet to to hear all about their first trip and to see KNP through their American eyes :D :D

PLEASE Gavin would you post your photos for us ( the only one to take any - sorry :redface: )

A belated thank you from me to Scouter and family for a wonderful evening..great peeps, great food, great venue and great entertainment !!! Some funny stories about 'bones" and Storm's antics in the swimming pool caused much hilarity...
Great to meet the "newbies'.....and of course just as wonderful to catch up with the "oldies" :wink:

Thx again Scouter for all your hard work. :thumbs_up:

Firstly a HUGE big thank you to Scouter and her SO for a wonderful meet (yet again :P ), and also to them for making thier little piece of heaven available to us for the night.
It is so quiet and peaceful up in the cabin, that we only woke up after 8am :redface:

Here are a few pics of the cabin so those who weren't at the meet can appreciate it :D
