Annual Walks Walks and Events 2009

31 December 2009


Procedure for Predicted Hot or Inclement Weather

The Wallaby walk scheduled for 7 February 2009 was cancelled because of the extreme forecast weather conditions. In fact the temperature reached the middle 40’s.
This sensible and necessary cancellation meant that the President and the Secretary had to contact Wallabies informing them of the cancellation. This involved a considerable amount of work and time.

The Committee has decided that all scheduled Wallaby Club walks will be automatically cancelled when;

1. A day of total fire ban is declared on the day of the walk, or
2. The forecast temperature is in excess of 35 degrees Celsius, or
3. Dangerous weather conditions are forecast by the Weather Bureau.
