It looks like the weather is going to co-operate both days this weekend. As sunrise is now around 6:30 AM we will gather at the club house from 5:45 - 6:00 AM then begin to open nets. As of yesterday afternoon nets 9 & 40 are down with broken trammels.
Rumor has it that we may be getting a visit from some friends we haven't seen in a while this weekend. Also one of our junior banders has asked that I mention he will have an order form with him this weekend for anyone wishing to support his Boy Scouts troops Popcorn sale fund drive.
This coming Monday is the Auburn Sportsman's Club monthly meeting. Nominations for officers will be made at this meeting & we will need a Bird Banding teammate that is also an ASC member to take over as Committee Chair. I am finding it increasingly difficult to work a 16 hour day on Mondays & also make it to the ASC meetings. Anyone willing to assume this position will need to be at this meeting.
See You at THE CLUB,

We will be banding this weekend.
Sunrise is now close to 5:30 so we will open nets @ 5:00. Openers & Sub permittees let me know if you will be able to make it please. Hunting season continues through the 24th so wear orange on Saturdays & any other day you band but Sundays.
See you in the AM?

This weekend's weather is still "iffie" but we will plan on banding any way. If Saturday morning is supposed to be clearing I plan to be at the club by 5:15 & will open as weather allows. I plan to spend some time at the club tomorrow afternoon addressing the water situation if the weather co-operates. We still have a couple of nets we can set up as well & will wait until Saturday so interested newcomers might have a chance to see the process.
I will send another e-mail tomorrow evening confirming these plans. Sub-permittees & openers let me know your availability please.
See You all at the club,
