Hello Folks,
Myself and Sue intend visiting this venue this coming Saturday and wondered if anyone would like to join us for a day out, more details can be found out here if your interested? Hawk Conservancy

I've sent an email to the folks I think might be most interested in this trip, but thought I best list the trip in the forums in case anyone is interested or in case (shock horror) I've forgotten anyone.

We intend arriving at the venue by about 11am, this will give us plenty of time before the first flying display at 12 to say hello and make sure everyone have been introduced to each other before the action starts.

Of course everyone is welcome to come along and we'll especially welcome members that are either new to EPZ or have never been on an EPZ meet before, just come along make yourself known to me/us, I'm a big bloke who can't normally be missed and just so you don't have trouble recognising me, I'll be tugging behind me a little green trolley that I put all my kit in....It saves my dodgy spine Smile Talk to me nicely and I'll try and give advice and help to anyone who feels they need it.....

If you feel like coming along, just add your name here and hopefully we'll see you there, those of you that might be interested......

Regards to all......Ade & Sue.

Well I'll be there regardless, but the more folk that come the better and the invitation is open to everyone!

Mike, Andover's only a quick blast down the A34 from Oxfordshire, so that's a lame excuse mate.....LOL

Hope to see you there Ron and anyone else that feels like a fun day out.

Gentlemen, This Reminds Me........

A friend of mine was President of Andovers Split Image Photographic Society and he was at the Hawk Conservancy taking pictures of the owls flying on a calm day.

A lady visitor there expressed an interest in what he was doing and he moved into 'Recruitment Mode' explaining about the club as well as what an SLR was and various types of film for wildlife etc etc. All basic stuff.

She paid very careful and patient attention to his every word and, at the end sensing she was still interested in photography he asked her name...........

"Heather Angel" she replied.

I take it then that the A303 will be clogged with EPZers on the way to this meet. And there was me going up to Andover to say hello to me Mummy for the first time in 12 months on Saturday. If I have time I might pop in. If not have a good time.

I've been looking for somewhere to go this weekend and try out my new camera. Should be able to make it with the wife and son as long as the forecast doesn't change for the worst!

Looking forward to meeting you both,

Mike.

Now then. My wife has just suggested a day out on Saturday. Do you think she'd be awfully upset if I dragged her along here?


Maybe not, next time perhaps.

have a good day, the weather's supposed to be good.

Not this time thanks Ade.

Definitely intend to get back there sometime this year, but Newcastle to Andover and then back to Newcastle, maybe not the best use of my weekend this time around.

Anyway I still have a few thousand images to edit Smile

Hi Ade and all, I hope to be there on Saturday and would like any help going as I have spent a lot of time around birds of prey but never from behind the camera! Looking forward to meeting you all,

Jeannie.

Just bumping this up a bit in case no-ones seen it and are wondering what to do with themselves on Saturday, look forward to seeing you there those of you that can make it.

I'll be quite happy to pass on what skills I have if anyone needs it or are feeling a bit out of their depth, just make sure you ask, because I don't want anyone going home thinking the day was a waste of time.....I want to see everybody that attends post at least one or two shots of the birds.....

See you there.....Ade & Sue

Hope you all have a good day, looking forward to seeing the results.
