 On the following weekend - Anzac Day without the extra day - Pat McBride too over from an injured David Rostron on a very smart canter from Kanangra to Axe Head Range and back. Four fleet-footed citizens got back to the cars about 8.0 pm Sunday. That weekend Bob Younger with parity of eleven had pleasant walking at Ettrema, but the Ti Willa walk was cancelled for lack of starters. The day walks had a good roll-up, 16 with Hans Beck down Glenbrook Creek, which had still a fair flow of water and at least one patch of quicksand which sucked in a prospective;​ and 12 on Sheila Binns' Kangaroo Creek trip - parts of the way changed almost beyond recognition after last November'​s bush fires. On the following weekend - Anzac Day without the extra day - Pat McBride too over from an injured David Rostron on a very smart canter from Kanangra to Axe Head Range and back.

-The Cornells led a party totalling 16 on the Martin'​s Creek - Nattai jaunt on the first weekend of May, and threw in a side trip up to the Beloon Gap on the Wollondilly Divide. That same weekend Brian Hart had three starters left after some got astray in transit, but found a very easy ridge off Mount Coricudgy in the upper end of Blackwater Creek, and returned early to the cars after exploring its pleasant headwaters. Having no starters, Gordon Lee formed a party of one to Paralyser and Guauogang, while 19 joined David Ingram to Cowan Creek, the region having largely recovered from earlier bush fires. Len Newland'​s "​exploratory"​ in Lynch'​s Creek attracted five, who had leisured morning tea and lunch breaks, but finally reached the cars along a fire trail after nightfall.+The Cornells led a party totalling 16 on the Martin'​s Creek - Nattai jaunt on the first weekend of May, and threw in a side trip up to the Beloon Gap on the Wollondilly Divide.

 For the last weekend under review (May 8-9-10), a party of eight assailed the Three Peaks with David Rostron. Advertised as "80 km - Very Hard" the conquerors gloated at the meeting over "50 miles and 15,000 ft" to get away from cold metric calculations. (Without scaling it off on a map I assume that's 15,000 ft of total ascent, not 9,000 ft up and 6,000 ft down.) Seven people were on Bob Younger'​s Shoalhaven trip - no detailed report. Margaret Reid had 19 on the Pindar Cave trip, where some evidence was still about of last summer'​s fires. The need to travel by a later train than originally intended reduced the spread of time available. Roy Braithwaite'​s team of 9 lunched at Deer Pool en route from Bundeena to Audley and all went to plan. For the last weekend under review (May 8-9-10), a party of eight assailed the Three Peaks with David Rostron.
