The true inspiration for the new Pennant caps?

sulphur crested cockatoo

Some members have recently stated that the rare yellow parrot was the inspiration of the 2016 pennant caps. While admitting that the splendid bird life abundant at Jamberoo are in fact the designer’s muse, perhaps this cockatoo may be the true inspiration.

While talking about caps let us all thank Col Booth for supporting the club and sponsoring the full cost of this year’s yellow pennant caps. Thanks also go to Mike Harris for ensuring our shirt and cap orders were processed efficiently. Well done to you both!
