In Adelaide, the Avicultural Society of SA Inc. meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 7.30pm for an 8.00pm start, at the Freemasons’ Centre, Regency Road, Broadview. Meetings usually finish by about 10.00pm. Plenty of off-street parking is available in the hall grounds.
Our monthly meetings usually consist of the following:
The February meeting is always our Annual General Meeting. Each year we have a “Minchin Memorial Meeting”, when a Guest Speaker, usually from Interstate, presents something a bit special. The December meeting is our Christmas Break-up and is designed to be a fun night with plenty of time for socialising and Christmas cheer. Throughout the rest of the year, meeting topics are as varied and interesting as possible, and can range from Parrot and Finch talks, to topics concerning Hand-raising, Building Aviaries, planning Planted Habitat Aviaries, and so on.
