And Most Importantly
Our annual End of Year function on Thursday 6th December at Fernkloof at 18:00
This will be a special celebration of our Club’s 15th birthday!
As usual we will also have our annual Photo Competition when you can show off your favourite bird photo and stand a chance to win a prize.
The rules are simple: Photos must have been taken by yourself & must be of a free-flying bird. (no, the bird does not have to be flying, but it must not be in a cage or in your hand 😉 A 15 x 20 print, mounted on an A4 paper with a caption on the front and your name on the back, must be handed in by 18:30 on the evening or delivered to a committee member beforehand. We are not looking for perfect photos, just your favourite ones – you may enter more than one photo.
