 At the December Council Meeting the question was raised as to whether the new spikes and pitons cemented in the rocks by Warrigal Club members are on "​Taro'​s Pass" [Tarros Ladder, Taros Ladder] or "​Duncans Pass". After some discussion, it was decided to retain the name "​Taro'​s Ladder"​ for this route, the "​wallaby track" for the alternative way on this section, and "​Duncan'​s Pass" for the whole descent from the wallaby parade on Clear Hill to Debert'​s Knob [Mt Debert, Debert Knob]. Taro has been asked to paint fresh signs for placing at the forking of the routes, both top and bottom. At the December Council Meeting the question was raised as to whether the new spikes and pitons cemented in the rocks by Warrigal Club members are on "​Taro'​s Pass" [Tarros Ladder, Taros Ladder] or "​Duncans Pass".

 As members had been notified by circular/ our Walks Secretary had resigned and a new one had to be elected. We are exceedingly happy to be able to report that a volunteer had been found for this very arduous job, and the meeting enthusiastically elected Grace Edgecombe as Hon.Walks Secretary. John Manson is, of course, still Assistant Walks Secretary, and they are now preparing the next walks programme.

It was hard to believe that all this gorgeousness was supported only by our old green tables. Gladioli, creamy lilies and golden roses vied with the attractive food as table decorations.
