Just seen this fundraiser for a great cause on the square box. Just wondering if anyone is participating and/or fundraising for this event or has any more information?

I am at King Ash Bay (near Borroloola, NT) at the moment. The Outback Trek will be here overnight next Wednesday. 378 people at last count. Kathryn (wife) and I and a few others will be busy in the kitchen providing Barra, chips and salad for dinner, then a hot breakfast in the morning.

The Trekkers have a big day getting here on Wednesday (across the Gulf Road), then off via Roper Bar to Mataranka the next day. Close to 600 KM each day across some pretty rough unsealed roads.

I'm sure they will be having a ball and we will try to ensure they enjoy their time with us. The King Ash Bay Fishing Club is supporting them by providing free camping and free use of the Club's facilities while they are here.
