Hi everybody -

I hope someone can help with three questions I have about events in the
history of the RAOU (Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union - the previous
name for Birds Australia).  I am trying to chase up dates and venues for
such things as congresses and campouts and have looked through past issues
of EMU and the RAOU Newsletter, but there still a few gaps that somebody
may be able to fill (some of you may have attended one or more of these

1.  What were the venue and dates of the 1967 Campout?  (The accompanying
Congress was held in Adelaide on 28 October).

2.  Was there a Scientific Day in 1981, or was it replaced by the RAOU
Symposium (on 'Feeding Strategies of Australian Birds') of 14 May at the
51st ANZAAS Congress in Brisbane?  (The usually-accompanying AGM was held
in Sydney on 16 May).

3.  What were the dates and venue for the 1989 Campout?  (The accompanying
Congress was held in Canberra on 22-24 September, in conjunction with the
first ARA (Australasian Raptor Association) conference).
