Fancy Some Bird Photography?…

by on Oct.29, 2009, under Outings

Hi all!  I have been researching the possibility of WCC heading off somewhere to do some bird watching/photographing and I have come up with the ‘numero uno’ spot.  At a number of now dry ‘wetlands’ I have asked where all the larger water birds are and been directed to the Werribee Sewerage Farm, now euphemistically called the Western Treatment Plant.

Here then are the details.

To enter the sewerage farm you will need a key and a permit.  The permit costs $20, is not transferable and may be used over a period of 2 years; the key costs $50 which is a refundable deposit, it must be returned within 2 weeks of the permit running out to get the deposit back.  There is a provision however for short term loan of keys;  short term loan keys may be collected at the time of arrival and returned at the time of departure but because someone is not always around, (I wonder why?), call 9742 2828 tell them when you are coming and a key will be left for you to pick up from a mutually convenient place. Needless to say returned to the same place when you depart.    Problem solved!  Each Bird Watching Permit is good for a car full of as many as 5 people.

Have a great time and don’t get your feet wet!!

Cheers Andy

Christmas Dinner Update…

by on Oct.29, 2009, under Outings

Hi all, the main purpose of this email is to bring you all up to date with the arrangements for Christmas Dinner.

We will celebrate Christmas together, at dinner on Friday the 11th of December at Madeline’s at Jells.  Madeline’s is located within the precinct of Jells Park where parking is available either opposite the restaurant or beside it. We have booked out the main function room which I believe is called the Alexander Room.  Suggested arrival time is, say, between 6.30pm and 7.00 pm for a dinner service which might begin at, say, 7.30pm.  The restaurant would like us to make full payment, and where possible to tell them what we would like to eat, before we arrive.  They also ask that if U have any food allergies they be told about it so they can sort the issue out in the kitchen before we arrive.  This, they say, makes for a quick and easy service.  So, given we don’t have many full meetings left, I must ask anyone who has not yet made a payment to see Rodelle our Treasurer for 2010, and please do that as soon as you can. The full cost for the 3 course dinner is $50 per head not including drinks.  This is a strictly no BYO venue. Rosie and I have eaten at Madeline’s and we were impressed with the level of service and indeed the taste of the food.

Your choice of meal can be made from the menu on the blog site but for those of you who, like me, have trouble with anything even vaguely electronic here it is again;

Entree – selection of either …
Pumpkin Soup
Lamb Kofta or
Crispy Calamari

Main Course – selection of either …
Fish of the day
Fillet Steak
Fettuccini or
Chicken Breast

Dessert – selection of either
Chocolate Addiction
Sticky Date Pudding
Trio of Ice cream

We have a list of 36 members who say they would be there which makes for a right crowd.  If anyone else is still thinking about it don’t wait too long.

Cheers Andy Armitage
