Small and useful is best the local community will also be there and they might want to bet on something too. Dont forget the article has to be paid for in cash and twee rivieren is very isolated so nothing too grand please . But then please do donate something

Hello Caracal
Its like this anymite can donate an article that they might feel would be of interest to the folk who will be at the cricket .. say for eg one or two or three of your very super prints of animals . Each article is laid out on a table and has a card where if you would like to bet on it You write you name and what you are prepared to bet . the next mite comes along and adds their name and bets a higher amount and at the end of the day the highest bid wins !!
Its nearly as much fun as your christmas meet and stealing of gifts :D
We would love to have some of those gorgeous pictures you make .. Please
We do need to know more or less what we have on the table .
