No KTP team this year but the Golden Gate team did very well.

It was very nice to pop in at the cricket, even if it was for a few hours only! The atmosphere was fantastic! You've got to be there to appreciate it! Hope we will be able to attend the whole event next year! :dance: :dance:

The Golden Gate teams must be commended on the initiative they took to attend the event. They raised funds themselves to fund their trip. They came well prepared and with a wonderful attitude and spirit, and played so well. The GG ladies won the match on Saturday against the Forum Angels.

The GG ladies team warm up on Saturday - and some team pics:

Sorry DB I got a little trigger happy. Giving me a camera and saying take some pics can be dangerous as you may have noticed. :redface:

What an amazing event. Everyone involved thank you so much.

To the forum mens team :) Nothing but admiration guys :) If the rest of the forum had any idea of the last month that basically consisted of extreme sunburn, bruising, stiffness in places that you had no idea existed and commitment... Proud to have been a part of it. :clap: :clap: :clap:

To the planning people... As always an amazing event :) Every year it is a blast :) I loved the Waterkant Guesthouse braai.

Thank you so much for everything. Sheer Awesomenosity!!!
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!!!"
