My forte is the refreshment section where I have received an Oscar for the best role as coolerbox opener.


See you in KTP then Uncle Rooies. :dance: :dance:

I am really concerned about Lion Queen. She hasn't shown her face here.perhaps busy with having a picnic somewhere.

Hi RichardJ, a programme will be posted nearer to the time. But for short, Thursday night "meet and greet" braai, Friday and Saturday cricket matches and Saturday evening the Gala event and price giving.

Remember to bring some big umbrellas and your own folding chairs, as apparently I heard there is only dunes and no trees to hide from the sun :twisted:

RichardJ - arrangements are still being finalised, but briefly this is what should happen over the weekend:

Everyone to arrive on Thursday 14 March and there will be a casual evening event in TR camp. Probably a bring and braai or similar.

The cricket matches will be played over two days, the Friday and Saturday - due to the heat. These will be played on the pitch at Welkom school 10km south of TR camp. Concurrent activities for children are planned (jumping castle for eg) and also stalls around the field etc.

There will be another evening event on the Friday evening and a Gala Event on the Saturday evening, which will be slightly more formal.

If you would like to get involved in playing cricket, please let Scipio know. Or/and your family that might be travelling with you.

Edit - PJ posted while I was typing :D

Someone put me on the yes-list without asking me... Sorry, I won't be able to make it this time.
And yes, I will be in SA around that time. But a long-weekend Kgalagadi detour is too much. Sorry... Cricket@Skukuza 2014? I'll be there!!

It's cause the cricket will just not be the same without you, Jose. :)

Now where is all those people from the Slaapstad?

Now an interesting question to all Capetonians:

Why do they call Cape Town the Mothercity????























Cause it is only every 9 months that something happens..... :twisted: :twisted:

Oh shaddup............. it is the home of the Currie Cup. :tongue:

I won't be able to come this year :wall:

My son & his wife arrive from UK on that weekend....but we will be in 2R on the Monday after, so those of you 'recovering' there look out for the fire engine.
