Leaders Mobile Phone Numbers
At the November committee meeting it was argued that walk leaders adding their mobile numbers to their walk description would help prevent problems we have had this year with walkers not finding the leader at second meeting points and starting locations. It would be the walker's responsibility to have that number. When leaders submit walks for the program they might like to add their mobile numbers.

Who to Call?
Leaders - ASAP after the completion of your walk, phone Tony Simmonds on 4422-9425 to let him know of your safe return, and the number of people on your walk.

Car Sharing Cost - from July 2015
10c per kilometre per passenger, rounded up or down to the nearest dollar. For example -
62km = $6.20 = $6.00
66km = $6.60 = $7.00
