In March we have our annual dinner instead of a monthly meeting. In past years, we sponsored speakers such as Pete Dunne, Julie Zickefoose, and Al Batt. We try to treat the speaker to birding in Kentucky on the day following the meeting just for club members. The March Dinner Meeting is on Tuesday, March 12 at Big Spring Country Club, 5901 Dutchmans Lane. A cash bar will be available from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. when dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. There will be a field trip on Wednesday morning, March 14 at 9:00 a.m. at the Anchorage Trail for BBC members. Reservations are required.

Melissa will tell the story of her journey into the career of bird and wildlife photography, sharing some of her favorite stories and photos along the way.
The club wishes to recognize and thank the Louisville Audubon Society for its generous support of the dinner meeting.
There is a dress code at Big Spring CC. Collared shirts for the gentlemen must be worn at all times. Casual dress is permitted as long as it is tasteful. Download the reservation form HERE. A vegetarian entrée will be on the menu but for any other dietary needs please indicate on the reservation form.
The price for the dinner has increased this year to $40 due to raise in the price of the dinner that Big Spring is charging and sales tax that we have not paid in the past as a non-profit club. The Kentucky legislature changed the law concerning non-profit organizations.
