 The Walks Report indicated that my wine and cheese trip scheduled for 20,21, 22 April did not go for lack of cheese drinking walkers. The day walk that weekend has been discussed at length elsewhere. Jim Brown'​s Anzac Day trip was reported as easy with 29 starters. The following weekend, 27,28,29 April saw Steve Hodgman leading 5 people on a bike trip from Mt. Victoria to Lithgow via Newnes. Fazeley Read's Budawangs trip did not go for lack of starters, even though Gordon Lee was available as substitute leader. Laurie Quaken led a slightly modified version of his Splendour Rock trip with 3 prospectives and 2 members. David Cotton'​s Advanced Photographic Adventure Workshop went, but we don't know how many attended. There was no report of Diana Lynn's Sunday trip - perhaps they are all still out there somewhere. The Walks Report indicated that my wine and cheese trip scheduled for 20,21, 22 April did not go for lack of cheese drinking walkers.

-Craig Austints ​walk of 4,5,6 May attracted 6 members, one prospective and one visitor into what was described as "lousy weather"​ around Mt. Coricudgy. They staged a strategic retreat and were back at the cars early. Len Newland had 6 members and 6 prospectives on his Hawkesbury Lookout trip. We are assured they did get wet feet as per programme. The other Sunday walk saw Neil Brown leading 15 people into the mist and teeming rain from Waterfall. The cave they sheltered in during lunch only softened them up for the really heavy afternoon rain.+Craig Austin'​s ​walk of 4,5,6 May attracted 6 members, one prospective and one visitor into what was described as "lousy weather"​ around Mt.

 The Federation Report was brief. Peter Harris has donated $459, the next S. & R. Practice will be held on the last weekend in May and a group are preparing a film on South-West Tasmania, but need funds. A motion was passed by the meeting authorising a donation of $150.00. The Federation Report was brief. Peter Harris has donated $459, the next S. & R.
