Mildly sore MM reporting back :wink: More from the dancing than the cricket.

It is difficult to find the words to describe this years cricket. A few come to mind:

Heartwarming

Exciting

Fun

Bonding

Glowing

and above all

Extremely professional

To all involved in the planning, implementation and hard, hard work...

well done

I could not agree more, Scouter. Pam was there, her love for KTP was there and she has two special daughters continuing her love for all creatures great and small.

Just posted online. :D

Yeah, it took forever to mention them all, but if I spoke any faster, no one would figure out my "Italian" accent. :lol:

Krieket à la Kalahari - article in the Volksblad. Google Translate will help those who need a translation, except I am sure some of the words are not really as they were written :wink:

Afternoon,

There were indeed two mistakes in the article published.

1. The manager of the Kgalagadi Community team is Henry Hannes Heyns and not 'James' as mentioned.
2. It is the Kgalagadi Community Cricket Team and not the SANParks mens team.
