OK guys and gals here’s the rota I promised. I will also post it in the Newbirdpoker community where it will be easier to find than buried deep in your stream:
w/e of 25/26 June - Marilyn Benham
w/e of 2/3 July - Jim Robertson
w/e of 9/10 July - Nicole Best
w/e of 16/17 July - Barry Scully
w/e of 23/24 July - Jan Glasziou Rainbird
w/e of 30/31 July - Ramprakash R
w/e of 6/7 Aug - Asani Bhaduri
w/e of 13/14 Aug - Dusty Gedge
w/e of 20/21 Aug - Dominique Morice
w/e of 27/28 Aug - John Wade
w/e of 3/4 Sept - Marilyn Benham
w/e of 10/11 Sept - Jim Robertson
w/e of 17/18 Sept - Nicole Best
w/e of 24/25 Sept - Barry Scully
I think it would be useful if the initial post to announce the theme, also said who will be taking over as this will provide a reminder.
If after the rota is posted anyone cannot make a particular week then can I ask that they try to arrange a swap. If this is not possible, then please declare #birdphotodomino
(if anyone remembers that!) for that week – anyone can lay a photo down and then people may choose to post a photo which matches a major element of the shot; eg - bird species is obvious, but then swimming, feeding, calling, crested – the possibilities are almost endless.
Early in September I’ll put out a reminder asking for any known non availability for the coming 3 months, although I think for the Christmas period, reverting to #birdphotodomino
(possibly based on photos taken in 2016?) means no-one has to mind the helm at that time.
