NEW for this year's AGM.  We've had a book called 'Take a Walk in Southern NSW and the ACT' by John and Lyn Daly donated to the club by the authors.  The  book covers more than 2000km of walking tracks from Sydney south to the Victorian border with outline maps and detailed descriptions as well as a plethora of other information about the National Parks covered in the book.

Happy New Year 2019 - new programme

Happy New Year 2019 to all our members and their families.

Thanks to all the activity leaders who have already contributed items to this quarter's programme.  A quick glance today shows Len leading the way with six activities!  However, all contributors to the programme are to be congratulated on the variety of walks and social events that they have planned.

Nevertheless I would call on all past walk leaders to think about adding an item this quarter as the programme does have three weekends where there are NO walks.

ANB Christmas Party 2018 - Thanks

Thanks to everyone that contributed to making this a great party, especially (in alphabetical order) Catharina, Connie, Diane and Steve who organised the food and set up the venue, as well as Charles who provided the Christmas themed music and drew the door prizes.

Approximately 45 people attended including new and long-standing members, young and not so young, regular and not so regular walkers, in short a great cross-section of our membership.  I think it would be fair to say that a good time was had by all.
