As a change from our usual BBQ at Omatua in Rissington, we are planning to hold a Pot Luck meal on the last Thursday evening of our club calendar.
The details are:
Date: 13 Dec
Time: From 5.30 (eating no later than 6.30)
Venue: Puketapu Park, on Dartmoor Road, Puketapu (2nd gateway).
Facilities: Ample parking, toilets, water supply, two large electric hot plates for cooking.
In the case of bad weather, we will transfer to the Cricket Club rooms in Napier.
What to bring:
If your family name initial is between A and M, please bring a salad dish to share.
If your family name initial is between N and Z, please bring a dessert to share.
A meat dish to share. (This could be a precooked dish, cold meat, or cooked on the hot plates – your imagination, your call)
Your own tipple.
Your own crockery and cutlery.
Your own chairs.
An outdoor table, if you have one.
Something “Christmassy” to wear.
Who to bring:
Yourself, your partner, your kids, your grandkids.
Any questions, give Kelvin a call. We are not counting names so there’s no need to register; just come along to what we hope will be a great send-off to the end of year and the start of the festive and holiday season.
Kiwi Work: Sue Taylor a volunteer for ECOED keeps the group of volunteers informed on the work we are doing in the Kaweka FP. She writes about two kiwis named Mr Brookes K and Kanuka H.
Bruce and Ann from the Napier Tramping Club kindly took the sick chick, Mr Brookes K, down to Massey this morning and then drove over to Mt Bruce to pick up Kanuka H.
Apparently Mr Brookes K was down to 160 g on arrival at Massey and his poo showed dead worms, so the ivermectin dose must have worked.
Kanuka H weighed in at a whopping 490 g. Anne C delivered him up to the creche this evening.
Tx # 60 – 37 weeks battery – change date 15 August 2019
Weight 490 g
Bill – 47.79 mm
No Baycox – dose in 2 weeks
Season summary for first clutch.
17 chicks into creche, 1 mortality, 1 at Massey leaving 15 transmitted chicks in the creche.
The group are always looking for volunteers, so if you would like to contribute please contact Julia Mackie on julia at napiertrampingclub dot org dot nz
