As I see it, the World Cup is the chance for Aussie birders to collect
hundreds of ticks in 24 hours. At one website, there was a reference
to foreign teams having a local guide.

Alas Peter, it has sold out...who'd a thunk it!?
It's fantastic news really. More exposure for the concept that is,
and the causes of, the Twitchathon...
Maybe it was the lure of Home Brewers in blue tank-tops and rock
band T-shirts!? (you Vics should recognise one band that I am
wearing in the film). I talk in jest...we are not particularly
looking forward to it...us Brewers learnt a lot of lessons that year!
With regards to the timing of the doco to be screened on TV, I can
tell you that the film-makers are lobbying for it to be screened in
October, to co-incide with the 2008 event. I really hope this
happens...talk about exposure and upping the ante for sponsorship
As for Tim's comments...the only reason you Vics can afford to get
smug is that NSW has added pressure to themselves under the 'MDS',
but that's what we do best - perform under pressure - just not a low-
pressure system, which is your only hope really.
I'm assuming that the self-titled "worlds best Thon team" will be
making their way to South Africa for the World Cup in November next
