Our Winter Quarters event over the long weekend of Queen’s Birthday celebrations presents some delightful camping weather. At Bernard’s Cache, the chilly winter nights were ideal for wrapping up in warm blankets, then frosty mornings followed by warm sunny days. Many thanks to photographers John “Grub Box” Sultana, Michelle Barraclough and Peter Convey for the gallery photos listed of this event and in Volume 45 of Around the Traps.
Easter can generally be relied upon for glorious camping conditions and this year was no exception. We enjoyed four sunny autumn days and the cool clear evenings that make it a delight to sit about a toasty camp-fire. We conducted our 2nd “Hershel House” shoot and I know we all “Wanna see it again?” next year. Michelle had donated some lovely time pieces which were prized shooting awards for skilled, lucky or devious shooters (you decide). Read all about our Easter activities in Volume 44 of Around the Traps.
On the Sunday of a holiday week-end heat wave we were visited by 19 members of the Austin 7 Club. Nine grand little cars tackled the steep hills of the Strathbogie Ranges and the final South Pass route to Bernard’s Cache. The heat and humidity forced everyone to seek shade but we still had lots of fun together as these pics show.
