FledgeFest 2011 Announcement

On behalf of David Hancock, it is my pleasure to announce that FledgeFest 2011 will be held on Thursday, July 7th. Please click on the link above to read the information. More information and maps will be added soon.

For those of you wishing to attend FledgFest this year, please post your questions and requests for information here on this thread. Although it is a very busy time at the Sidney nest, as well as at most other Hancock Wildlife nests on the west coast of BC, every attempt will be made to provide answers to your questions in a timely manner.

This will the the 5th year for FledgeFest and we know it will be a big success. Those of us who have attended in past years know that FledgeFest is a fun-filled day, meeting new members, as well as getting re-acquainted with members we have met at previous FledgeFest gatherings.

We have a new venue for our FledgeFest luncheon this year and I will be posting info very soon on the announcement thread in the H.W.F. Social Events forum (click announcement link above).

We are looking forward to meeting new and long-time members at FledgeFest this year. Please mark your calendars for Thurs. July 7th and plan to attend this fun and exciting eventLeft thumb up

IMPORTANT FLEDGEFEST 2011 INFORMATION

For those of you who plan to attend FledgeFest this July 7th, please post your info here (first name, forum name, city/country where you live) and I will add your name to the list of attendees.

I would suggest that members who live in the same area contact each other to arrange car-pooling and share the vehicle fee on the ferry. Please note that seniors 65+ (documentation required) who are residents of BC can ride the ferry free Monday to Thursday, excluding Stat holidays. This perk is for people only, and does not apply to vehicles.

Please note ****

For those of you planning to attend FledgeFest, you need to register on this thread with your real first name, your forum username and where you live, and let me know if you are attending the FF gathering only or if you will be attending the luncheon as well. I will need to give a final head count to the caterer a week before July 7th.

** Additional Info on the luncheon at Muse Winery, following FledgeFest gathering at the nest site**

The luncheon is being catered by Douglas Stuart of Stonestreet Cafe and Catering in Sidney. Doug has kindly confirmed the following info:

They will be providing ice water and coffee/decaf/herbal teas in the luncheon price, at no additional cost. They will also be offering small bottles of San Pellegrino (regular, orange & lemon) at an additional cost of $2.00ea. They will also be offering a cash bar (wines by the glass) for those who wish to enjoy a glass of wine with their lunch.

Here is the link to their website: Stonestreet Cafe and Catering
