posted 31 Jan 2016, 16:59 by Secretary H.A.R.G.   [ updated 31 Jan 2016, 17:00 ]

A few of us are planning an RF campout at the site we are going to use
for the John Moyle.

If is on the weekend of the 13th & 14th of February.
All are welcome. Be great to see you there.

There is a long-drop toilet but no drinking water so you will need to
bring that.

From Perth, head to Pinjarra then take the Pinjarra - Williams road
(pub on the corner) towards Dwellingup. Turn left into Grey Rd. Follow
the track, over the railway line, the right to the campsite.
There should be someone listening on the club frequency - 145.525 MHz -
to guide you in.
