Our Christmas party was held last evening. It was a fun-filled affair and was enjoyed by 64 members who filled the Fernkloof Hall. Craig kicked off the proceedings by announcing Honorary Life Memberships for the Palmers and the Bowmans, in recognition of the huge amount of work these two couples have put into the club. It was a well-deserved accolade!
Then there was the annual photographic competition, with all participants invited to vote for the Best Bird Picture, Most Amusing Picture and Best Title. Jill Eckstein won the first category, and Winnie Pybus took both the other awards with her only entry! Well done! The competition attracted 29 entries in all!
Ronnie ran a short Anagram quiz. With complicated anagrams of local bird names, it was good to see that our birders were quick off the mark in identifying the species listed, despite anagrams like Conspire Damn Mop (Common Sandpiper).
A good time was had by all! We look forward to seeing you all next year. Happy Birding!
