Wilsur,

Please join us again.

I know I am not speaking for only myself .... You were a highly respected member and are being missed on the forum!

You placed numerous responses to members questions, passed comments, placed topics arranged rallies and not only made statements, but supported them with pictures, quotes from resources, etc.

Some of us are aware of the disagreement you had with the administration.

I have personally been in touch with administration who have advised that they have no objection to you coming back. Like all arguments, that does not mean we must never speak to those with whom we had a disagreement.

This is about the FORUM - We know you can add value, especially to new comers to the forum and industry!

Lets kiss and make UP

I have just given Wilsur a personal phone call this morning.
Wilsur and his wife are all keeping well and they are getting ready to go camping to TO Stand in Port Edward in the next few days...
It was nice chatting to him again.

During DR Drake GP’s phone call to me yesterday we spoke about “forgive and forget” and I personally agree with “1 Jabez” – that been in a disagreement sometimes Iron sharpens Iron. …and makes way for better communication.”

I sincerely hope that Wilsur will accept our invitation back to re-join our forums.

Yesterday afternoon we made Wilsur’s Profile Active again and he now able to login and participate.

What do you think about this; please share your comments…

Thanks Gonnie! - I personally believe he also needs to see this from you!

I dropped Willem an e-mail yesterday after speaking to you and informed him I would publicly invite him back on the forum. Fortunately, he responded. I have taken the liberty to forward a copy of the members comments to him, which in any case open for viewing. It is now for him to decide.

Thanks all !

From other topics, members may see between the lines that my concern is that we are slowly losing caravanners and if not now, in time we will lose members. Not many young people have the ability to join the caravan/camping industry and we need to look after what we have, even if we must bear with each other where we are in disagreement. If we are losing members, we are losing opportunities to gain more.

I believe in building and not breaking down. History is exactly that - past - lets not harp on it, but learn from it to improve the way forward!

I never had the opportunity to chat with WILsur but from reading between they lines, I think lots of us newbies on the forum could gain lots from his posts.

Well done CaravanParks,com for burying the hatchet and extending a olive branch to Wilsur to rejoin the forum.

Wilsur added a lot of value to the forums and was missed by most if not all.

I agree, more than enough time has gone past. Forgiving is the base of life. With out forgiveness, and excepting foregiveness this world would be in worse condition than it is.

Absoluut wonderlike gebaar van die administration!!!

Ja, ouens, die van julle wat vir Willem (Wilsur) persoonlik ken sal weet, wat se stunning mense hy en sy vrou Surrette is. Willem sal altyd help waar hy kan...en hy het so baie ondervinding en raad om by te dra tot ons almal se vrae en behoeftes. Die forum sal net baat by n mens soos Willem se insette.

WELKOM TERUG OU MATER.....

Hi all,

I have heard from Wilsur. He says he agrees with forgive and forget, but he is not ready yet - maybe there is still hope!

There are a number who have stated they do not know what happened -  I have spoken to both sides about the incident. In short, CaravanParks.com were of the opinion that Wilsur over stepped the mark and removed him from the forum - Wilsur apparently did not like the way it was done.

I don't think it is my place to pass judgement or pick sides. A lot of water has since passed under the bridge and just like any minor punishment, I am of the opinion a wrong doing should receive an appropriate punishment, not necessarily a life or death sentence! Gonnie has indicated to me and in this post that he feesl the same.

If you want to know more about his value here, do a keyword search on the left and numerous items come up. I think getting 28 caravans on a rally to Botswana speaks for itself.

Hopefully, for the forum and especially new campers, Wilsur will rejoin us.

Being a cricket umpire, we are constantly remind that "Cricket is bigger than the individual" - cricket will be there after we die. We similarly need to keep our interest alive for our followers!

Ek praat min, maar lees baie. Ek geniet die forum en leer baie van almal hier. Ons is ou 'campers' maar na my man se afsterwe verlede jaar is ek baie bang dat ek nie die moed gaan h om alleen te gaan kamp nie.

Ek lees net die forum dan weet ek, ek sal dit nooit oor my hart kan kry om van die karavaan ontslae te raak nie en eendag sal ek nog die moed bymekaar skraap om saam 'n klomp vreemdes te gaan kamp opslaan.

Ek hooop regtig Wilsur sluit weer hier aan, want sy bydraes was ook al vir my van baie hulp.

Want ek kan..

Ek skraap nog moed bymekaar....

Mariana,

Kyk gerus vir ons rally te Bloekompoort lang naweek Junie maand - dis dan regtig 'n geleentheid vir julle. Jy's dan amper my buurvrou!Wink

Die meederheid is nuwe mense.  Jy kan self op die lys sien wie was verlede jaar daar - meeste van ons het ook nie mekaar geken nie en het baie dieselde gevoel.

Vir my vrou was en is nog moeilik om by groepe aan te sluit. Kyk maar ook waar ek hier begin het -"Rallies a closed laager".

Kom kamp saam - WANT JY KAN!

Ek het al daardie 'drade' gelees D. Ek is baie tempted vir die Bloemkompoort kamp....

Ek stem heelhartig saam met jou siening oor die 'closed lager'... maar nie oor dieselfde rede(s) as Mr Boring Camper hierbo nie ;-)
