Transcript r §poojXbill Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas Libby Price, Editor Ellen Red, Assistant Editor VOLUME XVI, No. 6-7 June-July, 1987 CtH+»lh£ £vChfo Monday, Aug. 3: Deadline for Spoonbill and Clearing House material. Thursday, Aug. 6: Ornithology Group meeting at Bayou Manor, 4141 S. Braeswood at 7:30 PM. Marilyn Crane will present a program about her birding trip to Kenya. Saturday, Aug. 22: Ornithology Group field trip to Brazoria and San Bernard NWR's, led by Tom Taroni. The trip offers a good chance to see Wood Storks and migrant shorebirds. Meet at 7:30 AM in the Park & Ride lot on the east side of Hwy 288 at its intersection with FM 2004, just north of Lake Jackson. We will go first to Brazoria, then San Bernard. Afterwards the hardy souls will go to the Freeport marshes and San Luis Pass. Bring lunch and don't forget insect repellent. A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN by Rob Thacker We need to improve our relationship with the provider of our meeting place, Bayou Manor, and our sponsor at the Manor, Marion Taylor. If you attended our May meeting I'm sure you well remember that it was quite long. It was an important meeting, since the question of raising dues was discussed. I felt it was necessary to allow everyone who wanted to discuss this issue ample time to be heard. Although in this case a longer than usual meeting was justified, it brought to my attention some of the strain we put on the Manor and on Marion Taylor. In order to expedite our meetings I am making the following changes in our meeting format. The evening's speaker will be heard first instead of last. This will get the applause over with earlier, thus avoiding the loud noise at a later hour. The business meeting will be after the speaker, enabling us to stop before 9:30. Since we are having the speaker first, it will be even more important to settle down and start the meeting on time. Also at our last meeting, several bags of aluminum were left at the front door of the Manor. Several residents complained, wondering why all the "trash" was at the front entrance. In order to correct this problem, I ask that everyone bringing aluminum please hold it in the car until after the meeting and then deposit it in Ed Rosenburg's car. This way we won't have all the bags sitting around the building. For those of you who missed the May meeting I would like to summarize why we raised the dues. Basically, our expenses have been greater than what we took in for at least the last two years. We had been dipping into our "nest egg" of $5000.00 to balance the budget. Our club expenses have increased over the years. The Spoonbill has been improved and expanded, and also the printing and mailing costs have increased. The main issue discussed was whether to cut back on The Spoonbill's quality or maintain The Spoonbill's quality and raise the dues. The $5000.00 "nest egg" will be needed for publishing a new checklist and other projects. It just did not make sense to dip into our savings each year. The membership voted overwhelmingly to raise dues. I am confident that we made the right decision. Our outgoing treasurer, Peter Vennema, has done a fine job in getting us on a firm financial footing. I thank each of you who filled out an Interest Questionaire. They have been quite useful in planning next year's activities. I have enjoyed being chairman this past year. It has meant a lot to me to be chairman of this fine organization. I am looking forward to serving as chairman this coming year, and to all of the OG's planned activities. Our first meeting will be on August 6th, when Marilyn Crane will speak about her trip to Kenya. I'll see you there. Please come on time, because Marilyn's talk will begin the meeting.
