Dear fellow 'mites

The annual cricket will be held in Kgalagadi this year from 14-16 March 2013. We will be giving you 'mites updates on what is happening. This is the first time cricket will be held in Kgalagadi and the SANParks Kgalagadi Management are going all out to make sure that this event is a success. All funds raised through sponsorships will be ploughed back into the community.

Teams that will be taking part are from:
*SANParks Head Office
*Two teams from the SANParks Forum
*One team from Golden Gate Highlands National Park and;
*Two teams from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

Be sure to keep your eyes glued here if you won't be able to attend the event :popcorn:

Let the countdown begin!! :dance: :dance:

Hi folks

I just want to add to what Lesego has said.

As some of you may be aware (and others maybe not) we have our annual forum cricket weekend.
This year we are hosting the event in Kgalagadi. Yep.. Cricket in the red sand.

AND WE NEED YOUR HELP.

The event aims to raise funds for a school in Welkom (Just outside Twee Revieren Camp.) The aim is to build a data / training center for the community.

Now it has been a tradition over the last seven years that several "challenges" are placed on the event and folks will then in good spirit donate or pledge something if the challenges are met.

One of the oldest standing challenges is the "Thick Knee Challenge" Basically this involves a member of the Forum team being injured at the cricket. (ie getting smacked against the head, knee, groin etc and having the mark or bruise to prove it).

Guys please have a look at the thread and see if you would like to pledge something to the event.

The thread is here.

You are more than welcome to throw in your own challenge as long as it falls within family parameters as this is a family event... (family parameters are open for discussion based on the yellow mankini challenge that is already there.

It is said that some of the locally brewed "juices" makes one see a Darth Vader character in the dunes. Go and have a look at the challenges and do your part to make this a massive success.

Have a look and PLEASE support this worthy cause guys.

While our intrepid teams strap on their pads and fit the gentleman's vegetables protector, a reminder that those of us who are not fortunate enough to be there can still make a difference.

Are you Batting for the Community?
