Tomorrow night (Wednesday) is the monthly Sydney meeting of the Australian Herpetological Society. All are welcome. Bring a friend if you like This should be a very interesting discussion. There's been a lot of talk recently about the Draft Code of Practice for the Private Keeping of Reptiles. Two weeks ago on the 11th of November, there was a combined meeting of the Macarthur, Hawkesbury and Australian Herpetological Societies presented by the DECCW. Now, two weeks later, it's time to discuss in detail the outcomes of this meeting. p.s. Remember kiddies, this will be your last chance to become a member (or renew your membership) of the AHS and gain free entry into the Australian Reptile Park for our Christmas BBQ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The usual details (where, when etc..) are as follows 8) Free entry for first-timers. $5 every visit after that, or membership to the AHS starts at $25 for a year. You can download an application form here http://www.ahs.org.au/uploads/Membership_application.pdf It's a small investment to help support the reptile community in Sydney. And members gain free entry into the Australian Reptile Park out at Somersby Australian Reptile Park Official Site The meeting is held at the Australian Museum, opposite Hyde Park in Sydney. You can get off Museum station, and simply cross the park. But it's also easy enough to walk from Townhall station, whatever's easiest. Enter via these stairs (LINKY) on William St. Just ask the security to point you towards the AHS meeting location. Doors open at 7pm. IMPORTANT: Ask the security guard at the front door to point you to the meeting location, say you're with the herpetological society. If you're a tad too early he may ask you to wait in the foyer. If that's the case, wander down to the pub just down William St (see below) and you might find myself there WooHoo!
