This year is the 40th Anniversary of the Border Bushwalking Club. Find out what you have been missing these last 40 years bushwalking wise by attending the Historic Picture Presentation at the club’s February meeting and discover where we went and what we wore and drank back in the day and why we don’t anymore. Sometimes club members were lost, generally remained fully clothed and always tried to stay upright. But why did the Snowy Mountains Authority ban us from entering their space after a bushwalk in 1986? Why was the BBC notorious among Melbourne clubs for its scattershot ways in the early 80s? Where and what is the Burnt Boot Award ? Why did the bush bring so many members to conjoin in the same tent and sometimes why it didn’t? This is your chance to sit down with old-timer life member Warwick McLachlan and discover our local history of walking and cross-country skiing.

Where: Wodonga Senior Citizens’ Hall, Havelock Street Wodonga. ( behind the Cube)

Visitors are always welcome and supper is served. The room is open from 7.00 pm so people can socialise.
