    Last week above Refuge Bay, an SBW party re-discovered Camp X, the training camp used by commandos for a raid on Singapore in 1943.  Thick bush has reclaimed Camp X, but stones marking pathways are still there.

    Once a quarter, SBW runs a Basic Skills Workshop at Centennial Park for prospective members as an essential component of their progression to full membership. We have a great pool of trainers from amongst our members, who may volunteer once, twice or even more often every year. We are looking to expand that pool of trainers in bushcraft, first aid or navigation.

    We have training materials to guide people on the day and there is even the possibility of buddying up initially until you get the hang of things. If you are interested in giving it a go or finding out more, please contract Mark Wigley - or 0411 558 205. It is always a fun day and is an excellent opportunity to meet and engage with the newer members of our club.

    The bushwalker missing for 9 days near Lake St Clair did something many experienced bushwalkers have done to their regret.  He put down his pack to look for some missing equipment without taking a waypoint. When he returned, couldn't find his pack.

    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.

    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.

    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.
