Event Report: We traveled to Bungonia on the Friday and set up camp in a very dry campground - with filtered water from the taps! This was a Bushwalking NSW bush camp designed to attract members from all over the state. Attendance was low but the walks on offer and the meetings run were excellent. Three of the Bushwalking NSW Management Committee: Alex, George and David were our hosts for the weekend as well as Linda Groom from the Canberra Bushwalking Club who gave a powerpoint presentation on the software in use by the club for event and membership management.
