Sierra Foothills Audubon Society

Sierra Foothills Audubon Society’s October meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7 in the Community Room at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City.

Early last March, four Nevada County birders – Ted Beedy, Barney Kroeger and Jeannie and Rudy Darling – went on a 12-day birding and culture trip led by Peter Pyle, Keith Hansen and Patricia Briceno to Oaxaca, Mexico. They took over 2,000 photos and have selected some of the best for this presentation. And since this is an Audubon meeting, the emphasis will be on birds, but some cultural aspects of the trip will also be presented.

Oaxaca lies at the southern end of Mexico. Habitat varies from desert to cloud forest to coastal mangrove swamps and the bird life reflects this diversity. Many of the winter birds there are familiar to us as summer breeders up north. Others are more typical of Central American countries further south. A few are familiar to U.S. birders as SE Arizona or south Texas specialties. A handful are endemic to Oaxaca. Indigenous human cultures include Mixtec and Zapotec peoples. The presentation will include a brief tour of Monte Alban which overlooks the city of Oaxaca and is one of the premier pre-Columbian archeological sites.

Ted Beedy is a professional ornithologist and is co-author of “Discovering Sierra Birds,” an updated version of which he is currently preparing along with Keith Hansen. Barney Kroeger’s interests lie in recording bird vocalizations. Rudy Darling is on the SFAS board and is compiler of the Grass Valley CBC. Jeannie Darling likes watching birds, especially big colorful ones that sit still and really appreciated the cultural aspects of this trip.

Please join us for this visually stimulating visit to Oaxaca.

Early Risers Toastmasters

President Shawn Tuttle called the meeting to order asking for each person to introduce themselves and to say what you are looking forward to with the change of season. Answers ranged from reading a book to having parties.

Shelley Drievold spoke on “Coming Home to Change” about her trip to England, Scotland and Ireland. We are looking forward to hearing the next chapter. Her goals were “How to Say It,” selecting the right words and sentence structure to communicate ideas clearly, accurately and vividly.

George Chileski spoke on “What If There Were No Legal Hunting?” His goal was to “Persuade With Power,” to persuade listeners about his viewpoint or ideas or to take action and also to appeal to the audience’s interests. George gave detailed information on how the environment, habitat and law enforcement are supported through funds from hunters and fishermen.

Christy Bailey spoke on “Wardrobe Malfunctions.” Her goals were to be entertaining, such as being an after-dinner speaker. This speech showed us how to laugh at ourselves and she made it a very funny speech.

Scott Davis was Table Topics Master showing us utensils from his kitchen and asking the participants to rename them and create a new use for the tool.

Winners were Shelley Drievold for Speech, Karen Jones-Schimke for Evaluator and Shawn Tuttle for Table Topics.

Early Risers welcomes guests to attend at 6:30 a.m. every Tuesday at Trolley Junction in Nevada City. Remember only one person is speaking, the rest are there to be in the audience to learn and enjoy. Please join us.

Golden Empire Sams RV Club, Grass Valley

Hot dogs and puppy dogs, we all love to camp.

Our September campout was in the beautiful foothills of Nevada County at Dutch Flats RV Resort. The rumble of the trains, the hum of traffic on I-80. The visit of the bear every night to the dumpster. The sound of rain on our roofs. What else could you ask for? Oh, the agony of waiting for one number at Bingo. The numbers all around yours are being called then someone else gets the prize. Have to try again next month.

Members ate lunch at the newly opened Dutch Flat Hotel. What wonderful food and the hotel is a must to visit. Very quaint with lots of antiques and history. We really enjoyed the visit to the lovely town.

Hosts Len and Pat Fuson barbecued a wonderful dinner on Wednesday. We played many games during our four day stay. The Dingle Ball game was won by Fred Fluke and Berta Brown.

Penn Valley Toastmasters

For introductions on Sept. 9, Penn Valley’s President Jeff Pylman asked each one present: What do you think is a good question to ask for introductions at one of our Toastmasters meetings?

We were delighted to have Melissa Stevens as a guest from Motherlode Toastmasters. Melissa was voted Best Evaluator for effectively evaluating Marjorie Quist’s winning speech. As Best Speaker for the evening, Marjorie Quist entertained us with “I Was Green In 1967.” Marjorie talked about sending away for a free multi-purpose gift that promised to “Take Care of Mother Earth” – and, among other things, make a fashion statement as well. Marjorie made us all laugh as she told us that the gift turned out to be a paper dress that she wore to a stylish event.

Table Topics Master Marti Vogt brought us Proverbs from Larry The Cable Guy. We randomly chose two proverbs and tried to find a link between them. Jeff Pylman won for Best Table Topics for correlating these two proverbs. Support bacteria, they’re the only culture most people have” and “If the world didn’t suck, we would all fall off.”

Rotary Club of Grass Valley

Rotary Club of Grass Valley enters three teams into Bocce Ball tournament.

Members of the Rotary Club of Grass Valley are diligently practicing Bocce Ball at the home court of Rotarian Kathy Engenes’ house. This weekend, Sept. 18 and 19, the Italian Festival will be at the Fairgrounds with one of the main events being a Bocce Ball Tournament. The Rotary Club has picked up the challenge by entering three teams of four players and have hopes of doing very well in the competition. At this point we don’t know how many total teams have been entered. “But if practice makes perfect we should do well,” says Ron Engenes, head coach.

Bocce Ball seems to be capturing a lot of interest across the country and is a game that everyone can play and you don’t need to be Italian. Special temporary oyster shell Bocce Ball courts have been constructed at the Fairgrounds for the event. An enthusiastic response to this competition is expected this weekend.

Mother Lode Toastmasters

Our president Jinnae Anderson started off the night with gratitude by having us share what we were grateful for in introductions. Our Toastmaster of the evening was Sharon Hollis.

The first prepared speaker of the evening was Jinnae Anderson. She gave a speech, “Reaching a Consensus,” from the advanced manual on facilitating a discussion. This speech tested her leadership abilities as she moderated audience participation and then steered us towards a consensus regarding introductions eating up time for table topics. Evaluator: Melissa Stevens. Our second speaker Emma Santa filled in for an absent speaker by giving a pocket speech (an impromptu speech) about inspirational methods for officer training. Officer training is required for those who hold an office and runs the risk of being mundane. Emma gave suggestions on how to make officer’s training a rewarding and fun experience. Evaluator: Mary Thompson.

Glen Boire stirred the pot with Table Topics about various recipes using unlikely ingredients. We answered various prompts while using the word “delicious.”

Speakers that best met their objectives: Best Speaker – Emma Santa, Best Evaluator – Melissa Stevens, and Best Table Topics – Jan Fishler. Joyce Peterman was our General Evaluator.

If you are interested in learning more about Toastmasters, please come to one of our meetings. We love guests! Speaking is optional for guests. Meeting place: Eskaton Village Lodge – 625 Eskaton Circle, Grass Valley. Meeting time: 6:45 to 8:15 p.m. Mondays.

Gabe Dick also presented an advanced speech, the Sales Training Speech from the Professional Speaker series. Both Jolen and Gabe as well as several other club members are customizing their speech selections to support career goals. The two longer speeches left no time for Table Topics or Word of the Day; however, all area Toastmasters clubs are looking forward to the upcoming Table Topics and Evaluation contests. Three first-time visitors also attended the meeting.

October is archeology month.

History of rock art lecture Oct. 22.

Prominent archaeologist and current Ph.D. candidate at the University of California Donna Gillette will present a public program for Friends of Sierra Rock Art on Friday, Oct. 22. She will be speaking on “Markings on Stone: Rock Art through the Ages with an emphasis on California.” Her talk will begin with an overview of Paleolithic rock art in Europe as well as the United States.

Ms. Gillette is a nationally known archeologist. She currently serves as the Conference Coordinator for ARARA (American Rock Art Research Association).

She is the 2007 recipient of the James Bennyhoff Award by the California Society for Archeology for her original research in California rock art.

She has been researching, visiting and photographing rock art sites throughout the northern Sierras since the l990s.
