Much planning and teamwork had been required, but that ensured 140 members and families had a day to remember.

Some of the youngsters were afraid of the dark, or so they thought, until they started crawling around in a cave network, what fun. Then the sports events and BBQ was welcomed by everyone. It was a great adventure for the young people.
