Welcome to the new Full Members who were approved at the Committee Meeting on 3 July.
Mark Bartlett, Paul Davis, Paul Harvey, Lynne Mason, Kirsten Owens, Hilary Richards, Sven Stark, Annie Wong, Shima Zarbakhrt, Fred and Libby Van Der Heide.
SBW's team won the Navshield (Bush Search and Rescue) again this year. 29 hours navigating in zero degrees temperatures at Kanangra Boyd NP on Sat/ Sun 22/23 June.
It may be winter but there are still snakes around like this Death Adder on a Colo ledge in May. On the shortest day of the year, a member had an uncomfortably close encounter with a Black snake in Marra Marra. Both the snake and the member panicked, running like hell in opposite directions.
6 SBWs celebrate finishing 14 days on the Larapinta Trail with a beer at an Alice Springs pub.
The next Social Night is the annual Winter Feast on Wednesday 17 July at 6.30pm, Kirribilli Neighbourhood Centre, Fitzroy Street, Milsons Point. Bring a plate if you can, Refreshments including gluhwein provided.
The next Basic Skills Workshop will be on 8 September. The last BSW attracted a record 50 participants plus the facilitators. The workshop will be on a Sunday to assist people whose schedules mean they cannot usually attend on a Saturday.
A couple of years ago, a member who followed a certain Christian faith asked for a Sunday BSW because he had to go to church on Saturdays. Problem was the person who ran the BSWs went to church on Sundays. SBW was not able to resolve this theological dilemma until we got a Buddhist coordinator.
Prospectives welcomed into the ranks of Full Members in June were :
Stef Jang, Lenka Uvirova, Rob Thomas, Jeroen Tietema, Dale Crosby, Andy Dowdle, Sue Field.
No water at the Devils Rock campsite so a 4WD took 40 litres in the week before. This party of SBWs back packed the containers to the cars on the second day of their overnight walk.
