Who Can See a Toucan? You Can! — Free!

sendfriendsWho wants a free birding trip to Panama? Who wants a free birding trip to Trinidad & Tobago? Who wants a free world-class Zeiss Victory SF binocular?

It’s time to get your friends and extended family to join the ABA. There are just 4 months left in our membership recruitment contest. This is a separate contest from our monthly drawings. At the end of the year, the ABA is giving away three very attractive prizes to the three people who bring in the most members.

One prize is a 7-night stay for one at Canopy Tower in Panama, plus a $500 travel voucher. A second prize is a 5-night stay for two at the Asa Wright Nature Center in Trinidad & Tobago, plus a $500 travel voucher. A third prize is a brand new Zeiss Victory SF binocular. Each prize retails for around $3,000.

We are now at the end of August and here are the top three recruiters.

1st Place – 6 new members recruited (Sharon S.)
2nd Place – 5 new members recruited (Tracy W.)
3rd Place – 3 new members recruited (Raymond V.)

What do you think? Can you get more than 3 people to join our organization? When your friends join (you can send them here), they must tell us that you referred them, so we know to give you the credit.
