See Antarctica - in Cape Town

Unread postby Bush Baptist » Sun Nov 06, 2011 3:12 pm

While Barcud is in CT for our Nossob ecotrail trip, he has offered to show a presentation on his adventures in Antarctica.

It would happen on Monday 5 December, probably at my house, unless there is an overwhelming response.

It would be a fundraiser in aid of purchasing an extra 'trap' camera for Kgalagadi Guru. Donations would be requested (approved by VHRs) and light refreshments would be provided.

If you would like to come, please reply in this thread.

Sounds like fun BB -- do we also get a preview of what the camera-trap "caught" on the eco-trail :whistle:

Thanks to Barcud for the offer, and to all who attended last night.
