Aniversary Birthday it's coming up

Unread postby Sparks » Sat Oct 17, 2009 6:51 pm

I tend to forget seemingly important dates like so's birthday and aniversary and things that get me in to a tight spot but this one deserves a party :dance: Stiffnecks is up for one, call it a birthday or anniversary or what ever you want this is the perfect opportunity for a big bash.

Let's have a big get together on that day in all the different areas covered by stiffnecks. I want to suggest a birding outing and a bit of a lunchtime braai at northern farm for the folks in the Gauteng area. There is a nice area at one of the dams with a hide and open space to park and sit around under the trees and get to know each other better. Any one with a better suggestion? Who's in?

Other areas lets pull together and have a bit of a birthday bash even if it is only you and so on a birding trip. Post a report and pics :cam:

Oops! the date? :redface: you'l have to ask jenbird
Adventure is out there. Go find it

I think we should rather postpone, the weather does not look promising for an outdoor birding braai. :roll:

How about next Saturday (28 November)?

Thats better Jen...this week would just be miserable. Even if the rain stops everywhere would be so wet.

How about Rietvleis next week?

Had a lovely time. Saw some nice birds. The northern Korhaan gave us a shock flying up out of the grass right next to the car. The Pin tailed Whyda was very active chasing the females.

This is one of our favourite places.

unfortunately I cannot view tinpic pictures here. Will have a look tonight.
