ELzet and Theunsh thanks for organising the meet. It was great to meet so many of the forumites for the first time. :D :dance: :dance: :dance: Love to come again even if I am not a Gautenger. At least the N17 is there and no excuses not to join you again. :whistle:

Mads thanks for organising the game drive and spotting that cheetah. I knew I had to come to this meet if I wanted to see any CATS in Pretoria. :thumbs_up: :clap: :clap: :dance: :dance: It was cold but the sightings made up for all. Would have love to stay longer at the Lapa, but I had to attend to puppy duties. :roll:

Will post some pics later. :wink:

:cry: :cry: So disappointed to have missed this meet, had a great day at Walter Sisulu Gardens with the Junior Rangers and got back late but seems as though we could have come through after all. Spent today at Rietvlei for a social with our Honorary Ranger region and when I mentioned Chettah to some of the folk I could see the disbelief on their faces, last nights pics prove it :clap: great sightings there guys sigh...........FB hope you are feeling better.

Good evening everybody,

Here is a photo of 3 of the Gauteng elders:
