 There is nothing particularly remarkable about the small gorge near the, great bend of Tullyangela Creek. Or so it seems, at first. It is quiet. The stillness is only pervaded by the quiet run of cascading water and the bend of branches whistling in the wind. There is nothing particularly remarkable about the small gorge near the, great bend of Tullyangela Creek.

 My old friend Transfuscius alerted me; and I knew I should remember. Half way up the wrong side of Murdering Gully one moonless Sunday night and heading for the last train from Katoomba (he was one of those Tigers, you see), he quietly mused, "If you go looking for trouble, it's sure to find you." It was such an elegantly complete description of bushwalking that I forthwith recognised it as a thought to treasure. My old friend Transfuscius alerted me; and I knew I should remember.

 At 4.10 pm on Friday, 20th January, 1984, David Rostron, Craig Austin, Ray and Fusae Dargan and Malcolm Steele boarded one of East-West Airlines new F28 Jets destined for Devonport, Tasmania. (Return Apex fare $197.50) After a short delay caused by air traffic congestion at Mascot the jet was accelerating down the runway to its liftoff. Whilst in flight the captain extended an invitation to any passengers wishing to inspect the cockpit. When my turn arrived we were crossing Bass Strait and I was able to catch a good view of Flinders Island and observe the water below capped with any white crests from the strong winds for which the strait is notorious. Upon touching down at Devonport at 6 pm we disembarked to a cooler climate and knew Sydney'​s humidity was far behind us. At 4.10 pm on Friday, 20th January, 1984, David Rostron, Craig Austin, Ray and Fusae Dargan and Malcolm Steele boarded one of East-West Airlines new F28 Jets destined for Devonport, Tasmania.

 The meeting began at 1955 hours with the President in the chair persistently gonging the gong to subdue the gathering of some 35 or so members and declare the meeting open. The number of members present grew through the evening to a peak of about 70, so it seems not everyone believed the published start time of 7.45 pm. There were apologies from Fazeley Read, Heather Finch, Don and Jenny Cornell, Bob and Christa Younger, Anton Gillezeau, Gladys Roberts and John Newman. The meeting began at 1955 hours with the President in the chair persistently gonging the gong to subdue the gathering of some 35 or so members and declare the meeting open.
