-The following weekend, November 18,19,20 saw Les Powell'​s Mt. Colong gallop cancelled and Barry Wallace leading 6 souls on his Tomat Falls the-long-way trip. It seems theriver ​rose a metre or so while they were on the other side and only the kindly intervention of the local farmer, with a boat, saved them from having to swim for it. Jan Mohandas had 20 (or was it 21) on his Tootie Creek natural spa trip, which was reported as being O.K. Joe Marton'​s Waterfall to Otford trip had 7 starters. There were leeches in Frewe'​s Gully, ticks and leeches at Burning Palms, and it threatened rain all day. Other than that it was just another'​day walk. + 
-November 25,26,27 saw Kenn Clacher with a party of 11 on his;​GalloPing ​Jim'​s ​Roitte-trip, pressing on through scrub and drizzle on the Saturday and rain and cold conditions on the Sunday.

There was no report of Derek Wilson'​s Waterfall to Heathcote trip but despite the Walks Sec. losing the submitted report we do know that Alan Mewett had 13 people and fine weather on his Wondabyne to Woy Way trip.

-Over the weekend of December 9,10,11 David McIntosh had the 12 starters on his dual canyons trip split up into two separate parties with the idea that each party would do a different canyon on each day. Heavy rain on the Saturday night brought it all to a halt, so they retreated to the fleshpots (tearooms) of Mt. Victoria on the Sunday. Ian Debert reported 17 at the combined paint-in and dance-by-any-other-name weekend ​ac Coolana, and there were 5 on Alan Mewett'​s Brisbane Waters trip. George Mawer had 6 or 7 on his Campfire Creek trip enduring cold conditions with a late burst of warm sunshine.+

 Conservation Report brought news that the Point Piper to Marulan transmission line will not now pass across national parks area. It seems the acceptance of this by the government Minister concerned was most reluctant. Proposed logging in the Mt. Yengo area appears to not be proceeding and the Ettrema and Mann areas are to be declared as wilderness areas. Conservation Report brought news that the Point Piper to Marulan transmission line will not now pass across national parks area.
