Hmmm something wrong here :shock: ....I paid all of these donations.... :evil:


I know, vinkie, and I have it from a VHR that the payment was actually allocated / re-located
to our project but it's not officially confirmed here yet.

Hope that'll happen before the 24th October 2013 because...

Seems like another lifetime when you and I started the Webcam project.

This is true, Duke. I still have fond memories of our first fundraising event. :dance:
In October it'll be 2 years ago. And I think therefore it's time to get this Project to an end. :thumbs_up:

Here is my final plea:

Once all outstanding amounts have been paid and confirmed or in some case where the
have been paid ages ago, but not confirmed for our project yet, I'll pick up the tap from
there up to the target sum of R22 000 that we have been given when we first started.
With all the pledges still outstanding we're talking about an amount of approx. R2 000
that I'll have to pay.

But this pledge has a sell-by-date which is the 24th October 2013 as this marks the date
of the very first fundraiser for the Mobile Webcam Project.

And update on Sharifa's artwork for the mobile webcam:

Super Mongoose has received / picked up the
'You don't have to shoot yourself into the leg for this one' the day before yesterday.

Timbit's 'Leopard going to Canada' is ready to do just that when
Timbits picks it up from Kgalagadi Guru on her KTP trip.

Hilda has received her 'Golden Light for our Webcams'.

And I will probably take the 'African Lady' home in October when I meet
Sharifa and / or Duke.

:k I would like to say a big thanks to Sharifa
for her effort, time and commitment on this project.
:k

:gflower: And of course thanks to all who have participated in the auctions!!! :gflower:

What has happened with this project, is there any progress in getting the mobile Webcam?

A lot of money has been raised for this project, a lot of people have put in a lot of effort to get this project in the spotlight and now it seems to be dead! :cry:

I would like to know if the money I send to help this project isn't waisted on a project that doesn't seem to get finalized. :evil:

Good question, vinkie... And good luck with getting a reply.
It only :P took me the better of 4 months to finally get an answer and
to find out that there is a meeting scheduled end of next week (not the coming one!).
But I wasn't specifically told whether the progress of this project was on the agenda or not. :roll:

Vinkie and LS,

The reason why Danie is included in this meeting is to get clarity on the technical aspects of the implementation, and DinkyBird and Nedret to get the ball rolling so that this project can be finalized. I will give you feedback after the meeting on Friday.

Regards
Porridge.

Thank you Porridge for your reply.

But I don't understand why you mention Danie.... :hmz:


I hope to get a response from SANParks or an Admin about this Project, like I said a lot of time and effort has been put into this Project by a lot of people.

Vinkie,

I'm the HR who is running with this project now as it went stagnant for quite some time, as you well know. I will give you official feedback after the meeting at Groenkloof on Friday which I am also attending.
