Hugh, you have a lift :thumbs_up: Bert is going via Jhb.

Martie ... you have a butler (far away from the camp site), sorry A Butler (capital B there) in a grass skirt, with bells ... where do we put the bells :hmz:

DinkyBird wrote:The annual forum Cricket event comes to Twee Rivieren, Kgalagadi in 2013!

All forum members are invited to attend and support this wonderful event in the red sands and dunes.

The event will be hosted by SANParks, and arranged by SANParks Events department, E Biz and Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park, aided by forum members who will form the Planning Committee. The Virtual Honorary Ranger region will also be involved and will endeavour to raise funds for a project to be determined.

This is a time for mites from all over the globe to meet and greet and relax with each other and with the SANParks officials they see online, and those from KTP and surrounds. The emphasis on the event is to have FUN! (and play some cricket :wink: )

The activities will begin on the Thursday and run until the Saturday evening. Keep a close watch on this topic for all the exciting plans KTP have up their sleeve.

Bookings of accommodation:
Kgalagadi management are holding a block booking for forum members to ensure everyone is able to get accommodation. It is important that mites attending the event make their bookings early, within the next few weeks if possible. Presently 100% of the chalets at Twee Rivieren will be closed and 50% of the camping area, for the people of the forum.

We appreciate that the park is willing to assist in this regard and hold accommodation, but they cannot be expected to keep it closed for too long and will need to release excess to the public. It is therefore important that you make your booking very soon.

To book please email Jannie at jan.kriel@sanparks.org with your reservation.

1. Put Cricket 2013 reservation in the subject heading of the email, and include your client code and full name and booking requirement in the email.

2. Only bookings for Twee Rivieren can be made this way, if you are going to visit the rest of the park, those bookings must be made through the normal reservation procedure.

3. If you wish to spend longer at Twee Rivieren than just the 3 nights of the Cricket weekend, include that in the booking via Jannie.

So, get planning, make those bookings asap, and lets all look forward to another fantastic and successful Cricket event!!


Jannie is not there, and Annetjie who answered the phone when click click called knows nothing about it?? She said bookings only open tomorrow so call then?? :( :evil: Anyone else knows how or what to do??

Martie I had a letter from Jannie saying he would be out of the office till the 4th April BUT he did say he was blocking all the accommodation apart from some camping especially for us mites .. So I sure it will be fine . He will only release it later in the year .

Can I share you butler .. ??

Martie and click click, just to confirm what Hugh posted; the bookings for the cricket weekend must be made via email to Jannie. You will not be able to book it the normal way from Monday, as Twee Rivieren has been blocked off for the cricket mites for the next while.

DB she did sent the email and got message that he is not available till the 5th of April...she then called him and he told her to call the camp to book.... :? All Im saying is that surely he should have informed the ppl in reception or who answers the phone that if ppl call in to book for the cricket as he is not available that they should know about the cricket?
