Hi to all the cammers and formurites out there,

Firstly I would like to thank SANParks for granting permission for this event to take place. :thumbs_up:

To Danie of SANParks for swinging the webcam around at the prearranged time and capturing and zooming in on the images.
Many thanks Danie, much appreciated. :thumbs_up:

A big thank you to all the cammers and mods who have commented and participated in this event in any way. :thumbs_up:

Thank you to all who have contributed and made pledges towards this event. :thumbs_up:

To Koedoe, it was great meeting a local formurite and hope we can arrange another meeting soon. :thumbs_up:

To the overseas visitors,

WOW how great that was to meet two couples for the first time in Addo from two different continents, AMAZING !!!!!!!

To David, melph68’s dad, a man of many interests, I wish you all the best Sir on all your planned travels around Australia. :thumbs_up:

To Spots whom I thought would have something spotty about him.
Instead I found a man wearing something very bright, as seen on the webcam, to attract Lion sightings he tells me.
Well that shirt certainly works because we had amazing lion sightings every day.
I wonder if Spots was wearing that shirt when he spotted a certain Lionspoon and attracted HER attention....... :wink: :naughty:

To melph68 and Lionspoon, my formurite friends. :)

It was great meeting you in “real life” and now that we have become “real friends” :D :D

It was a pleasure meeting all you folk in Addo.

A privilege and honor for me to take you around and show you Addo Park.

I would love to do it all over again. :clap: :dance:

Till next time.........

Hello friends :yaya:

I'm back in Sydney but feel as though half of me is still in SA :tongue:
I had such an awesome time there 8) 8) 8)

I too want to thank Lionspoon for her enthusiasm and commitment to raising funds for the mobile webcam, and Danie for making the cam event a reality :gflower: :gflower:
Plus a big thanks to all the cammers who participated on the day :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Also I just want to add how wonderful it was to meet Lionspoon, Spots, RonnieL and koedoe in person :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:
My Dad and I felt privileged to spend time with you all. It was a really fun day :D :D :D

Lastly, Ronnie - you are an absolute font of knowledge on all things Addo! Your guiding skills meant we learnt so much more than a regular tourist would. Thank you - it made our Addo experience very special :clap: :clap: :clap: :gflower:

YAY!!! WELCOME BACK MEL!!! :yaya:

Can't wait to read your Trip Report...
From the little snippits we heard from MM - it sounds like you had some AWESOME sightings!!! :shock: :dance:

For us, it's SO nice to have you back, but I'm sure you may disagree :lol:

I think I’m a bit tardy :roll: on this thread as most of what I would have wanted to say has been written here already. :thumbs_up:


Nevertheless, I’d like to thanks Danie for his support helping to make this event real! You really had to suffer a bit when we were on the phone and those crazy guys and gals dangling from the roof and messing about in the background made one heck of a noise. :slap: :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Of course a big thank you to my fellow mites and friends who shared this day with me. It has been a great honour and pleasure to meet you, Ronnie, koedoe, Mel and Dad! :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:


:gflower: :k Also I’d like to thank all cammers and cam lovers who participated in the fun here. :k :gflower:


I just did a rough calculation, but it seems I’m short of a few Rands as well now. :twisted:


I’ll get back to this once I’ve fully settled and sort out the finances. :thumbs_up:

Sooo, tally time! :lol:

chirinda wrote:I will pay R50 for each of the ones which I get right out of these: LS, Spots, Melph68, RonnieL and Magic Guarri.

RonnieL, melph68, Spots and LS were spot on! :clap:

Sorry to say, but that is R 200 for you. :wink:


Melrockson wrote:But in all seriousness, my guess is:
Melph, Lionspoon, Spots, RonnieL and Meandering Mouse
I'm with Chirinda... I'll pay R50 for each one I get right too...

As above... Sorry to say, it is R 200 for you as well. :lol:


Meandering Mouse wrote:I wonder who is swinging from the rafters R100 for a correct guess.

Melrockson got it right!

Well, sorry to say but you are R 100 short now. :wink:


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

This is what grannyb said:
Image Image Image Image

And also vinkie, PJL, chirinda and Melrockson.

I'm sorry for myself, but that is R 500 for me. :roll:


Lionspoon wrote:Now, if you're getting the 5th one as well, I'll pay an additional 500 Rand towards the new cam. (Once)

vinkie got that one right!

So, I'm even more sorry for myself, but that is another R 500. :lol:



Which means we have raised another R 1500 towards the mobile webcam with the third Addo Event! :dance:

Also, melph68 made a pledge regarding her breakfast meet in The Cradle, which is worth another R 300
and wildflowergirl has donated an extra R 200 at the end of last month!

Let's hope for the next 6 months being equally successful. Image

Oh why, thank you very much for your kind words, Mel rocks on! :redface:
But without you guys and gals I couldn't achieve a thing! :thumbs_up:

Talking about achievement - chirinda has kindly topped up her pledge / donation to R300,
which means we are now at R10.250!

Thanks so much, chirinda! :gflower:
