Annual Picnic

 

For 2012, the Annual Picnic will be held on Saturday, September 22 and again will be hosted by Greg Hake at his Hawkstone Farm in Dahlonega, Georgia. Activities will begin promptly at 10:00. Agenda as follows:

10am-11am - TBA

11am-noon - TBA

Noon - 3pm - Lunch & fellowship

Lunch details will be posted as they become available.

You might want to bring a chair in case you want to sit down outside. There is a pond that is "chock full of fish" and Greg invites anyone who wishes to bring fishing tackle.

We would love to see your newly-trapped birds and possibly some creance work. There will be a weathering yard available. If you bring your bird, please bring a water bowl and a perch that can be firmly secured in the ground. For the safety of all birds, be sure that you are using slitted jesses, swivels and leashes without a metal clasp.
