Thanks Shaun

@ Payback....Camera was a Big Issue...have 2 SLR's and was Dying to take one.

Wifey said NOOOOO and I settled on the SONY HX1

Saw 2 Guys Fighting tooth and nail with security ,trying to convince them that the SLR's are not professional Camera's.

It's actually such a JOKE as some of the new Mik and Druk camera offer up to 30x Optical ZOOM with Full HD Video

Was a Great night...

Thanks for comments

+1000  :laughing4: This is a really good valid point!! Let's hope that the "Security & powers that be "NEVER" come to understand it,... as thay might just get a be in their bonnet to ban all cameras. ;D ....oh yes,... I forgot for a minute,... we live in SA :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer: :pot:

the daftest thing for me was when they not only refused to allow any bottle caps into the venue (for plastic bottles) but also REMOVED all caps from cooldrink and water bottles. I mean really ?? If I wanted to throw a bottle I wouldn't care if it had a cap on or not.

In Cape Town it was something like 72 000 people - quite a bit more than any SWC game

From my perspective everything went pretty smooth in CT. Not much waiting or queuing anywhere.
The trains were hectically full - a lot of people made use of the park and ride option.
