    Gives it a sense of appropriate urgency... Hope duckie is ok!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Maria :)

    Yes, he made a rapid and full recovery, although a somewhat tipsy one.

    Thank goodness Greg was there, I can't imagine what would have happened otherwise (I mean this is such a specialized field).

    Next flickr meetup we will have to either 'safety fence' the beer or you will have to buy a buoyancy device for him.
  • David de Groot said:
    I'm thinking maybe it was the head on the beer... you know, ducks aren't that well adapted to swimming through beer foam. But yes, definitely handy to have a vet in attendance!

    we really need to do a thorough risk analysis and implement appropriate WH&S procedures before the next flickr meet-up...

    do yu think we can get advice from flickr administration about this? i sure they would not want to face any negligence suits.

    Something like a policy of always requiring a vet to be present at meetings where there is a probability of alcohol and animals ?
  • The Central Scrutiniser said:
    now there is a policy i could vote for

  • David de Groot said:
    Quite so Coralie. Next weekend we've got an afternoon/evening thing with a visiting Sydney-sider, and then possibly a trip out to the bay area on the Sunday (or maybe something closer to town, dunno - details this week).
  • ferrous said:
