My dear Graham
There will be some men present, but only those I believe will be acceptable
to the members of the Women's Network.  And they (the men) will not be
wearing dresses unless they insist upon it!

This function, by the way, is a fun attempt to put women in touch with birds
and mangrove environments.

Back in the early 90s Ita Buttrose asked me to put together a Top End trip
for her women¹s travel club,  including a visit to the Leanyer sewage pond.
That's when I thought of the idea of a soiree, and organised the first, in
1995, for National Water Week.  In 1996 I organised another two for national

The last was a couple of years ago - a Christmas function for the NT Tourist
Commission.  This one turned out to be rather interesting.  Standing guard
over a trestle table laden with roast chicken and champagne I noticed a
crocodile zigzagging back and forth, back and forth, and drawing closer.

When the others turned up there I was, holding a fencing position and
preparing to do battle with my telescope's tripod!
