Cape Town KTP Fanatics -July 2008

Unread post by Caracal »

Firstly you do not have to be a KTP Fanatic to join in....we will tolerate Krugermites as well :wink:
I would like to host a KTP Picture Pizza evening on Friday 18th July 2008.
The idea is to bring along some photos, video clips or stories for us to drool over.....order pizzas when we are hungry... drink when we are thirsty.....and just chat about what makes us all tick.....KTP/Sanparks/Forum etc...
There are many Cape Town forumites that have recently been to KTP and have plenty of experiences to let's get on with it !!!!
Let's do what us Cape Town Forumites do !!!! :dance:

Pics of the meet...well, sorry, none that I know of. Got carried away looking at everyones videos and photo presentations and forgot :redface:
However, did think of it a bit later when time for 'pudding came along.
A talented Baby Nel spoilt us by making a decorating a cake to add to the spirit of our KTP Fans meeting. Well Done and Thanks Baby Nel :D , don't think you were around when we all enjoyed it :clap: :clap:
At home...... dreaming of next trip to KTP

We had a great time last night. Pleasure to meet Dotty and SO, and so many other new people. Special thanks to Dotty from Jan.

Lots of photos were taken, should we be afraid? No, we probably caused the problems with Dotty's pics!

I really enjoyed the meet. Thank you everyone and especially my smoking partners :twisted:

Enjoyed meeting with Dotty and Derrick and their friends Bob and Angie. Hope you have a wonderful trip to Wilderness. :mrgreen:

Meeting all the other forumites was also a great treat. This was my first meet, but definitely not the last. Next time I am going to stay over so that I don't have to leave so early.

My internet connection is super slow today. I will post the pictures in the next day or so.

If any attendees have objections to their photos being posted, please let me know soonest! :lol:
