KirMiTS - 340 toads and counting (but sadness in Lakeside)

Hi All

340 toads found to date by the Kirstenhof toaders - thanks so much to all the reliable 'rosterees' and al the ad hoc helpers!

It has been great to have so many kids as well - like 5 year old Emma who asked her Mom last night 'can we do this every day'!  Love that.

KirMiTS - toads on the move!

KirMiTS - let the toading begin!

Well after 3 weeks of having teams on stand-by (some of which did go out anyway), our toads started moving in earnest tonight in Kirstenhof, and, it seems Lakeside and Marina - still waiting to hear from Muizenberg.

We had over 30 in Kirstenhof - 1 dead but, unfortunately, 6 killed on Main Road in Lakeside.  This is really frustrating - the most hectic road in our area - most of them were near Toad in the Road and we are going to have to think smart to change the racers on…
