Richard Norris, Membership Secretary of the Manx Ornithological Society sent out an email on 24th November with the following reminder. If you did not get his email please note his comment about the booking sheet for the Christmas meal.
A reminder to those of you who have not already put your name down that our next meeting is the Christmas Social & Quiz (with buffet) on Tuesday, 3rd December at Peel Golf Club at 7.30 pm. The cost of the buffet will be £6.50 per head, payable on the night, and drinks will be available from the bar.
Advance booking is essential, so if you wish to come and haven’t already put your name down*, please contact Anne Kaye on 834015 by 1st December. Non-member guests are welcome.
I hope to see you there.
N.B. The booking sheet which was put on the table at our October meeting (Jodie Crane’s talk) has been mislaid, so if you booked then, Anne asks that you reconfirm to her.
Tim Earl is giving a talk to the Manx Ornithological Socety on 12th November, looking back over 10 years work as a travelling naturalist
A reminder that our next meeting is on Tuesday 12th November at 7.30 pm at Union Mills Methodist Church Hall, when Tim Earl will be giving a talk entitled “It’s in The ‘Scope – 10 Years as a Travelling Naturalist”.
Tim tells me that when giving talks about his experiences, he likes to let the audience choose several different subjects from the varied range he can offer. Thus we may hear not only about birds but also, for example, about whales or the animals of the African plains – it all depends on you! For this reason alone it promises to be a rather different evening from those we are used to, and I hope you will be able to attend.
Union Mills Methodist Church Hall is next to the shop on the corner where the Strang Road joins the main Douglas to Peel Road. Car parking is available behind the hall, with access from Strang Road. Tea or coffee and biscuits will be available before the meeting (from around 7.15 pm).
