I have not received confirmation from the following:

4. Mellory
5. Madleopard
11. Bronwyn
12. Belinda

Please urgently confirm if you will be attending!

I have produced a 64 page full colour booklet which covers everything that we will cover in the course. It is titled "A Beginners Guide to Avian Photography". The cost to produce the booklet is R75 per copy and will be available for sale when you register. This booklet is very comprehensive and will assist you as a reference for future as well as you not having to take extensive notes during the workshop. (It is due to be published later in the year and will be sold for more than double in the shops)

Please do not pay for your entry at the entrance gate. There will be a list at the gate and you just have to give your name. I will collect the payment for the costs when you register at the restaurant.

Look forward to seeing you guys and gals..

The least the cancelling mites can do is to refund you!

See you on Saturday!

:thumbs_up: Flutterby. Look forward to seeing your pics. The Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit if you are ever in the area. It was a most informative day although unfortunately early this afternoon the birds were doing their best to avoid contact with our group. Perhaps partly due to the time of day and the huge numbers of children around. Despite this a few were spotted!!
It was lovely to see so many forumites there and to be able to put faces to names. Look forward to seeing some of you in the park next weekend. :thumbs_up:

Thank you, Robbie, for a wonderful and informative day. We really appreciate everything you did to make the day a success! I enjoyed to meet so many new mites and remeet some old acquaintances! Picking up a camera will not be such a traumatic experience for me anymore. Even tried out BB30's old one when we came home, but will leave the "cannon" alone for now!
