chair update

WOW. Not much more you can say about the presentation by Rachel Talibart last night.

Rachel kindly allowed us to record the meeting so for those who couldn’t attend and for those that would like to see it again, it’s currently on youtube for one week only. If you could kindly contact myself or Jeff Owen we will give you the link which is for your personal use only.

Two pieces of news now.

Firstly, FAB falconry are holding two dates for Photo sessions with their selection of Birds of Prey and Owls:

  • Thursday 17th June – 2pm – 4.30pm and 6pm – 8.30pm 
  • Saturday 19th June – 2pm – 4.30pm and 6pm – 8.30pm 

The Birds will be posed on their Smallholding in a natural setting (in Nutbourne, Chichester, PO18 area) and you will have the choice of Birds to Photograph. Falconers will be on hand to answer questions about the Birds and provide information. There will also be a chance to hold one of the Birds if you wish and to see some of the Birds in flight. We will have a break halfway through the session and Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate will be provided from our Campfire Cooking Team, just bring a mug! I am sure our Cooking Team will be able to provide some marshmallows for roasting too if I ask them nicely! Cold drinks are also available. The fee for the session is £20 per person payable via cash on the day. Should you wish to book please email Florence at:

They recommend booking early as they have a maximum number of fifteen people per session to ensure everyone gets as much time with each Bird as they wish and these spaces fill rapidly!

Secondly, the club has signed up to the the new LEE Filters Outreach Initiative  which is designed to provide clubs with completely free access to a wide range of educational, technical, and inspirational resources to help guide and support club members, tied with some superb financial benefits in the form of an ongoing 10% discount code for all club members that can be used through the LEE Filters Direct website. The club discount code is: 10CCHI which can be applied at checkout.

Finally, next week is the 3rd Club/Inter PDI comp so see you then.

That’s all folks. Stay safe and hope to see you soon.
