BIRDLIFE OVERBERG FUN BIRD QUIZ 2016 - A BRIEF REPORT
Posted on the 12th July 2016
The BirdLife Overberg fun bird quiz last night was again a resounding success, despite a very poor turnout. At least 43 members could not attend due to a variety of reasons that included illness, holiday and travel - interestingly several members had to look after grandchildren. This happens every year during the July holiday period and the committee will make a decision soon regarding possibly in future not presenting a monthly meeting during the month of July.
A highlight of the evening was that the Hermanus Bird Club was represented by a team consisting of John and Sheilah Bowman, Barbara Palmer and Lee Burman. BLO will now also send a team to the HBC quiz evening on 20 July. Competition was tough last night with the top three teams ending within five points from each other. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the committee, Paul Combrinck and Hele Oosthuizen of Southern Art Ceramics for providing the prizes. Thank you also to Wilmien van Heerden and Colleen Naude who once again provided outstanding catering.
