 Refering to Maurie Bloom'​s comments on the impact of improper bush hygiene habits and lack of toilet training: Refering to Maurie Bloom'​s comments on the impact of improper bush hygiene habits and lack of toilet training:
-Regrettably one sees too much evidence that this is very true. There are still (and always will be) lots of people who need training in these simple skills.+Regrettably one sees too much evidence that this is very true. There are still (and always will be) lots of people who need training in these simple skills. Leaders should not assume that everyone on their walk knows how to shit in the bush and how not to pollute streams with soap, toothpaste and urine.
  
-Leaders should not assume that everyone on their walk knows how to shit in the bush and how not to pollute streams with soaptoothpaste ​and urine.+Maurie also mentions ​the use of stoves. You are really safer and more self reliant when you pack a stove. The tribal campfirein use for many thousands of years, is a wonderful multi-functional tool and just the thing on a cold night. But it's also a wonderful way to denude the surrounding area of vast amounts of dry wood and (over time) deprive existing vegetation of essential recyclable nutrients. Fallen timber serves a multitude of environmental purposes. Let's conserve it.

 She also included a copy of '​Strider",​ the journal of the Long Distance Walkers Association. 100 pages of Mat appears to be a combination magazine and walks program. It has colour photographs,​ including one showing dogs on a walk! And it has a crossword puzzle!! She also included a copy of '​Strider",​ the journal of the Long Distance Walkers Association. 100 pages of Mat appears to be a combination magazine and walks program.

-1. SBW magazine. + 
-I agree that the layout of the articles and news items need to be presented in more of a desktop manner. Since George Mawer took over the editorship the presentation has slowly become more easy to read. I would like to congratulate George in his endeavours as the skills of layout via the computer was something he learnt on the way. Personally now that the technology is cheaper we could do with photographs (professionally printed) of various walking activities and scenery. +**1. SBW magazine.**\\ 
-Even photographs in the magazine(Photographs printed in the Colong Bulletin cost $30 per page).+I agree that the layout of the articles and news items need to be presented in more of a desktop manner.

 However on the way to having the smartest presentation of articles etc. I believe it is important to preserve the identity of the SBW magazine. It is not necessary to smarten up the cover. Allan Rigby'​s woodcut stands the test of time both from an artistic point of view, as well as keeping the historical identity of the magazine. Let's not change for change sake. However on the way to having the smartest presentation of articles etc. I believe it is important to preserve the identity of the SBW magazine.

 Congratulations to the forward thinking sub-committee on their early work towards a great event. As a long standing (walking) member I look forward to participating in all the celebrations. I am somewhat concerned however at the prospect of paying $70 for the dinner. And at an out of town venue as well. Maybe the committee might rethink the amount and the location of the dinner so that people on lower incomes could be included. Congratulations to the forward thinking sub-committee on their early work towards a great event.
