    Default BIRDING OZ ONLINE PARTY AND RECORD ATTEMPT!!!!

    If you have a look at the bottom of the Board Index for the forums you will notice that last year on the 28th of November we had our most members online at one time (34 members). This year on the same date I thought it would be great to try and break that record and have an online BirdingOz party of sorts.
    So on Sunday the 28th of November from 7pm (EST) onwards, grab a bowl of your favourite nibblys, a couple of drinks (soft drinks for the minors ) and pull up a seat in front of the computer screen.
    Everyone is invited and this will also serve as a kind of recruitment drive. If you know someone who is into birds and is not yet a member of birdingoz then let them know about the party and get them to register and join us on the night.
    I'll give you regular reminders over the next couple of weeks but pencil it into your diary
    PARTY ON BIRDINGOZ!!!!!!

    I can't do it at 7pm, but I can leave the PC logged on until I get home at 8pm.

    I'll be there. I have nothing special on that day...except my wedding anniversary. It's only our 18th anniversary so no biggie.

    Hi paul - are you going to create a specific forum for this on Sunday night? You could send out a private message to all members inviting them to join us? How will it work... just a constant flow of posts? Will we be able to post images? Maybe we can even talk non bird photo stuff!!

    cheers

    Everybody who comes to the party must start a thread. It can be an image thread, an interesting birding topic, an update on the birds in their area at the moment etc. I'll try and start a few conversational threads (off topic) as well.

    Great idea, Paul. That would make it 6pm for us QLDers as you folk are on daylight savings

    Will be hard to keep track of 40 odd threads, though, I have difficulty keeping up with just a handful
