We then headed north to Marooba Karoo for lunch and a magnificent view. There were seven in the party. The route was through Kanangra Tops then along Gangerang Range to Roar Knoll.

-On Sunday we climbed a buttress to the north-east ridge of Mount Paralyser. The rest of the way to the trig was comparatively easy and offered magnificent views of -Mount Guouogang and Naroo Gables.

-O This month starts a series of repertsty.kin,​slie,  ​ 
-and Mike on walking in England and Wales. A & M have been in the old country tracing their roots, and quite successfully it appears. As usual Ainslie has researched the trip thoroughly and has given plenty of good tips on how to do it. Similar to her report on walking in Central Australia but the astute and wide-awake reader will note the change in location. 
-o The continuing saga of walking in that tropical paradise 
-of the MarquesaS Islands where beautiful ladies whisper sweet riens in one's ear as they pass refreshing coconut drinks to quench one's thirst was thought to be somewhere between Tamworth and Kogarah however Frank came through at the 11th hour. 
-Did you'​dear reader note the deliberate error on page 8 last month? Tahiti is 6000 kms east north-east of Sydney, it is Sumatra that is 6000 kms north-west of Sydney. 
-o Jan Mohandas is leading a walk to Kakadu and the Kimberlies for early next year. If you are interested, perhaps only slightly at this stage, contact Jan'​now so that he (and you) can plan and you can have your interest raised. 
-o Jim Oxley our new treasurer has been unable to continue so now we have a new, new treasurer namely Don Finch. The books have been audited as is required and Don is now trying to apply Ohm's law to bookkeeping. 
-o The Coolana clean-up went according to plan. The SBW Country Club now has a sm000000th level floor ideal for dancing. The water supply had an overhaul by George and John to remove sediments, leaves and an undisclosed amount of gold dust. Alan demonstrated that mountain men can get down to earth and left his mark all over the new floor. Some of the team kept Alan satisfied with a constant supply of cement mix. Down on the river flats the remainder of the team gathered in this year's harvest of nettles and weeds. Young Barbra could not keep her '​birthday (NB 25 Sept) secret so tools were stuck and happy hour limited to 90 minutes in order to go to "​Woolaway"​ to help celebrate. 
-a What you missed 1. In September Gordon Ballard showed some silent movies on bushwalking and canoeing in the 40s and 50s. They weren'​t completely silent as Gordon gave a running commentry and comparison of then and now. 
-o What you missed 2. If we are late, then you missed Maryann Twitching, a councillor of the Australian Podiatry Association talking about feet. Obviously the basic, essential requirement for bushwalking is a pair of good quality, good condition feet. Maryann told/will tell how to look after these appendages each of Which contains 26 bones with very complex joints and brought us up-to-date with the latest in foot health care. 
-o What you missed 3. 121 people had a ball at the Federation Ball, including 25 SBWs. 
-o WHAT NOT TO MISS. In November the social program includes "Meet the Minister",​ that is meet Tim Moore our one and own Minister for the Environment. This is your hands on opportunity to discuss environmental issues of concern to bushwalking. Come along and learn how to say "No, Minister"​. Hands on is not the most apt description but it does indicate that the discussions will be informal and down to earth. 
-o And who made the front page of the St. George & Sutherland Leader, young Maurie Bloom with his woggle in full view training scouts to be modern day William Tells. 
-o And our walking wounded. Bev Foulds slipped on a wet footpath, hurt her hip and ended up on crutches these last few weeks. Gordon Lee's fall off a ladder has prevented him from tripping the light fantastic of late.
