I think some things should stay 'in the park'

Thanks to everyone for making it a superb weekend.

Now these new young guys realise that 3 hours in the field is no joke!

Looking forward to next year.
Long live Cricket@Skukuza

Ready for the next Cricket Weekend!

Ughhh *moan*
To be horribly stiff and then have to come back to mountains of work...
It blows bubbles...

Thanks for an awesome weekend folks :) Amanda and Dylon and me had so much fun.
Even though the suncream got runny in the heat and ran into my contact lens to leave me with a massive infection and I am sunburnt to a crisp I had a ton of fun.

Met some great folks and got to fly all over the show with Steven in da Bantam. Awesome experience.

Plans have been hatched for next year to try and compete with the rampant skukuza cricket team. Perhaps we can make a dent in the Skukuza machine next year. Will have to wait and see. *EVILCACKLE-THAT-TURNS-TO-NERVOUS-GIGGLE*

Anyway it was tremendous fun. Thanks to everyone
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"

Yes, something we can all agree on so far is that next year is definately going to be exactly 360 days to far!!!

It was indeed an incredibly delightful event! This year was the greatest thusfar - can hardly wait to see what next year delivers!!!! :big_eyes:

The reason the cam bombed out on the Saturday evening was the laptop 'broadcasting' the pics, was needed for the forumdale's music!

Here a few of the pics I took to give you guys an idea of the atmosphere.
