 The order of business was set aside at that time to accept discussion of the matter arising from the recent problems surrounding the rescue of our Sev Sternhell after he broke a leg in Gingra Creek. Keith Maxwell and Peter Treseder of F.B.W. Search and Rescue advised the meeting that simple rescues, in contra-distinction to searches were the sole responsibility of the N.S.W. police force, and that in such instances the police should be called at once. They also pointed out that because of the very nature of the S & R organisation,​ there was no guarantee that all, or any, personnel would be available for call-out on any given weekend. There was also mention that the provision of a modern pager system would greatly improve access to S & R officers. The discussion concluded with a motion of congratulations to S & R for the support which they provide. The order of business was set aside at that time to accept discussion of the matter arising from the recent problems surrounding the rescue of our Sev Sternhell after he broke a leg in Gingra Creek.

-JULY SOCIAL PROGRAMME 
-July 15th This Wednesday is for slides of the Wollangambe Wilderness area. Slides of old trips will be as welcome as ones of recent trips. The Wollangambe Wilderness has marvellous areas for winter walks, and also lends itself to such summer classics as the Wollongambe and the Claustral Canyon abseiling trips. 
-July 22nd Unfortunately John Crick cannot be with us. However our own melodious Scrub Bashers are busy working up a great new repetoire for our enjoyment. The Scrub Bashers specialise in Australian Folk music. Sure to be an entertaining night. 
-July 29th This is our annual club auction. Please bring along anything you may wish to dispose of - whether it be of a bushwalking nature or not. You may put a reserve on any article you auction and if the reserve is reached this amount will go to you. Any amount beyond the reserve, goes to the club - this year towards the 60th Anniversary fund. Charlie Brown will be the auctioneer. Charlie'​s auctioneering style will be guaranteed to amuse you even if you buy or sell nothing. An evening of entertainment is assured and (hopefully) the club will make a profit as well.
