Track Notes

A good display of tents from yesteryear, home-made gear, walking shoes, packs and current equipment (including lightweight options) was made available.

Our first member of the public stopped for a chat at 9am, as we were setting up.

Great to see more than 20 CBC members present and around 20 members of the public.

The event was well worth the effort. Thanks to Cynthia for organising it and to all the exhibitors. My special thanks to Tim the Yowie Man and @chifley_alison for advertising. There were other advertisers, too.
