    KING DAVID VI REINS























  More than 30 enthusiastic and cheerful birders were on had at the
  Bristol Bird Club's 60th Annual Picnic at Steele Creek Park to see
  King David VI (Worley) take over at president of the club for a
  sixth term.

  His historic run as our leader has presided over 20 percent of the
  club's meetings since 1950.  No other member has served as our
  president for more than four terms.
   
The club presented Dave with a keepsake
copy of the National Geographic Illustrated
Birds of North America, Folio Edition in
hard cover authored by Jon L. Dunn and
Johathan Alderfer.

Those in attendance wrote short messages
of thank you and appreciation for his long,
faithful and dedicated service inside the
front hardback covers.

He was most appreciative and had many
kind words for those who have served with
him and made the job easy and enjoyable.

 A cold front moved into the area after many blistering days in the 90's
and a constant light breeze blowing thru the trees from the north brought
everyone a relaxed and pleasant evening of fellowship.  Many birders
were present for more than nine hours as the event began to unfold at
3 p.m. and the parking lot emptied at 9 o'clock.















       The event has a long reputation for not eating and run.

Bootlegger"
Hay brings
a small bag
of goodies.
Admittedly
soft drinks
do not live
up to his
reputation
but he
doesn't 
know. 




Jennifer Kennedy's
famous theme
cake decorations
once again was 
the talk of the
picnic and a fortune
cook cake with bird
phrases was amazing.














The BT
Parks & Rec
has renovated
the shelter and
birders were
delighted at
the bright look,
new equipment,
expanded pad
and modern
restroom.

Without a doubt it was one
of the best picnics in
recent memory.  A BBC
winter shirt was auctioned
to raise money.  Many 
members helped decorate
the pavilion as never before.
The food by the BBC cooks
was excellent and delicious.
