    Well ive been chatting to a few on the SA forum and they wish to give us somewhere to practise also arrange a get together for the evening of wed 23rd

    Its still being sorted but dont see the date changing as i did say most of the lads going from england and wales will be landing on monday if your landing later sorry was going with majority.

    Times will follow

    Krokodilspruit Shooting Range is the shooting range and facilites there are said to be very good only 5km away from championship venue.

    Could those that are going to SA and would like to stay in touch with each other as we are staying at different venues and meet up at the range please can you e.mail me your details of where/how long your staying and how to contact you.

    im sure they are not really trying to nobble the opposition :D

    yes

    mostly as an alarm clock but i dont see why texts are a different price was going to check with my provider.

    you will still come for a get together though dale too think it sounds more like an afternoon do.

    Not sure what our little party will be getting up to on Wednesday but we only land that morning so I expect food will be a priority that evening!

    Plus I hope to make use of the hotel facilities, if everything is as it seems.

    I think it will be a good idea to make sure we can stay in touch out there and I'll forward my mobile and maybe some of the others numbers too before we go, looks like it will be cheaper to ring than text, I might even pick up a cheap pay and go out there for local calls.

    I noticed the South Africans have got a picture of their team up on the website, are they trying to intimidate us?:D
