Addo gets the limelight again

Unread post by Lionspoon » Mon Mar 19, 2012 3:59 pm

None of my trips would be complete with something spectacular happening. :lol: :lol: :lol:

As a recap:
Lionspoon wrote:Never seen at Nossob!
Ultimately rare sighting guaranteed on 24th October 2011!
It'll only appear to make sure that another camera can be established at SANParks.
But we need your help to realize both!

The aim: A mobile webcam that can be hauled to different SANParks.

The method: Luring the rare sightings to Nossob to support the task.

The payment: Donations made via GivenGain to VHR Support.

The profit: Insights to less visited SANParks.


We had lots of fun with the guesses from you coming in and
I hope you'll join again this time around. :thumbs_up:
Summer 2014 - Oz! It was awesome!

This time it reads like this:

Never seen at Addo!
Ultimately rare sighting guaranteed on 28th March 2012!
It'll only appear to make sure that another camera can be established at SANParks.
But we need your help to realize both!


The aim: A mobile webcam that can be hauled to different SANParks.

The method: Challenging rare sightings to Addo to support the task.

A bit of background:

A long time ago plans were made to meet up in Addo.
We started of as 4 forumite and over the last days another mite has said,
he would come as well. :dance:

Now those of you who read all over the forums will be able
to guess at least 3 of the mites involved, leaving 2 in the shade.
I daresay one of them might be close to impossible to know,
but with a bit of logic establishing who the other 4 are is a given. :wink:

As a little hint, I'll tell you that three continents are going to meet in Addo said day.

And herewith derives my first pledge:

I'll pay a 100 Rand for each correct guess of at least 4 of the forumites meeting in Addo.

I also ask you to challenge us in terms of rare sightings like it happened at Nossob.
You know we're good at attracting unexpected things to the cam. :whistle:

So, please cammers and cam lovers, get involved in this.

Our target is approx. 22.000 Rand to make the mobile webcam happen.
So far we're at approx. 7.500 Rand - a looong way to go still.

Don't be shy or intimidated by the size of the pledges / donations
that have been made by indiviuals before. Everything counts and if
you feel you would like to contribute to this fun(d)raiser, do it with
whatever you're comfortable with! :thumbs_up:

And guessing is for free anyway. 8)
