On The Perch bird park trip Feb 17/18 2018

FSA Bus Trip to On The Perch

There was enormous interest in this trip from all present at recent general meetings. As seats are limited, to be fair to the hundreds of members unable to attend meetings the committee decided it best to open reservations on the day magazines are due to arrive in your mailbox (magazines left in the post Monday December 4th). As you would know, Australia Post can be somewhat variable, hence this email. You would be well advised to reserve your seat immediately to avoid disappointment. Full payment is due before Christmas so we can finalise arrangements. If, for some reason, the trip does not go ahead all money will be refunded. Priority to financial members of the FSA. Thanks, in advance to everyone involved in organising this trip.
