Cricket@Skukuza 2012 THANK YOU!!

Unread postby gerharddb » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:58 pm

To all the people that made Cricket@Skukuza 2012 possible and probably the best one of the 4 I attended a very big THANK YOU!! It was awesome!

To all who couldn't make it.......you lost out BIGTIME!

Hard to think that its over already! :( But if this year is the benchmark for next year I am NOT going to miss it!!

Again a big thank you to all, SANPARKS, The Mods, The Skukuza team, all the organisers, and last but not least all of the friends on the forum who made it a very special occasion!

It was indeed one of the best, if not THE best, Cricket@Skukuza yet :clap: :clap: What a wonderful warm friendly atmosphere.

So many to thank - so many made it special. And the magic ingredient was the forum community; and a really super group of SANParks officials!

Gerharddb - thank you finally agreeing to share your most wondrous voice with us :clap: :clap:

Scipio .... you have kept that cricket talent of yours a secret for far too long :naughty: Best player :clap: :clap:

Yes, a big thanks to everyone who played a part in making this year such a success - from players to attendees, to caterers, to SANparks staff (organisers, officials, supporters, etc), Anti-poaching team (and Frikkie doing the cricket pitch preparation too!), entertainment team, mods, VHRs, and each and every forumite who supported the whole effort either in person or virtually........

It was awesome to be there again......and be a part of it all.

Gerhard I can't agree more it was awesome!! The secret to the huge sucess in my opinion was a great bunch of folks coming from far and wide with the intention to have fun and do their bit to help the rhinoceros

I can only say thanks to a great team for all the work and compliments to our hosts for all the work and effort from their side
