The Club monthly meeting in July was moved from Wednesday the 15th to Thursday the 16th. This is the traditional winter fun evening comprising a birding quiz, warmed with soup and sherry.
The reason for the postponement is Eskom load shedding. According to the new Eskom schedule, load shedding Stage 1 and Stage 2 on that Wednesday will be from 18:00 to 20:30.
We could have used an inverter to run the laptop for the quiz, but that would not have enabled us to heat about half a dozen pots of soup. So the only solution was to move the meeting to the following day.
The meeting, in Fernkloof Reserve Hall, will begin at 18:00 on Thursday 16 July.
