"A Night with Captain Watson" in Brisbane
Reported by Michael Dalton, Brisbane Coordinator
Brisbane unleashed another storm on Thursday night (20th November 2008) just as we were setting up for 'A night with Captain Paul Watson' and meant that we had to open the doors early which also dramatically reduced the anticipated 250 guests down to an estimated 120 at Kurilpa Hall. The night was opened with a couple of acoustic classic guitar numbers from 'Sanat' (Raymond Oliver), a conservationist composer and songwriter followed by a preview of Animal Planet's 'Whale Wars' and the much anticipated arrival of the Captain. Captain Watson captivated the audience for a full hour before opening up the floor to a Q&A session. Food was provided by the dedicated galley volunteers and well received by the guests.
