NEWSLETTER,   September 2005


MEETING---Monday, September 12, 6:30, Coonskin Park, Ice Cream Social…We will meet at a new location: not the usual spot.  Turn right just before the parking lot across from Gorman Shelter (usual spot).  Follow the road uphill to shelters 18,19, and 20.  We will be at one of those (they’re clustered together).  Someone volunteered, and may be able to stay at that parking lot to direct you.  The shelters are clearly numbered.  Just bring your summer sighting stories…we look forward to seeing old friends and new!
