Scouts - Narracan Falls

Camp was at Narracan Falls. The event was a 'flower bomb' fight. The guy with the glasses and flower all over him was the Assistant scout leader but I can't remember his name? He was Assistant under scout master Murray MacRae who was not at this camp. The scout with the fair hair, dark shorts and small billy in hand was Ken Tilley (where are you now Ken?). The scout next to him with the dark hair and billy was myself (Wayne Tangey). Next to me with his back to the camera (lower right) I think was Ken MacRae. Sorry but I can't remember the others in the picture?

L-R: Graeme Ure, Michael Larkin, Ken Tilley, ? , Wayne Tangey, Gary (Jughead) Vogel, ? (back to the camera)

March 1973 - the beginning of the rebuild of hut by
Steve Morgan, Ron Collis, Tim Apps, Ian Castell, Colin Gray, Peter Gray(?) Craig Swindon, Bruce Jones, John Gloz, and also 2 of the Newborough crew (Howitt Rovers?) Ray Bates & Perry Black.

During my time in the Rovers, we decided that it was time to embark on the 2nd phase of the J. W. McMahon lodge improvements (1st phase had been done in the late '50s - early '60s), and we were very fortunate that the original Yallourn hospital (Latrobe Valley Comminuty Hospital) was being demolished at the same time, so we were able to acquire all the timber that we needed (in abundance!) at very reasonable cost - i.e. pocket money almost. Unfortunatley the same couldn't be said for the corrugated iron for the roof - that had to be bought new. We were also fortunate that one of the members (Ron Collis) had a small truck to transport all the materials to the mushroom rocks car park, so we didn't have to pay anyone else for that. Bruce Jones was very involved with the Latrobe Valley Aero Club at the time, and tried to wangle a helicopter to air lift the hardware the rest of the way - at no cost to us of course. Needless to say that idea fell over, so we were left with no other option but to lug it on our shoulders, and our heads where the corrugated iron was concerned! (All with suitable padding of course, but then maybe that explains some things about us now?!) We were very ambitious about it, and I remember that we initially thought that we could do the whole job in one weekend (including lugging the gear up the mountain), boy were we wrong on that! I think it ended up taking about 3 or 4 months and we only just got it all finished in time for the snow season. The attached B&W photos were all taken in March '73, I didn't get any photos of the completed work until I returned 12 years later (colour photo - Aug 1985) with my own children in tow, even though I did make several more trips there that year while we finished it. Members that I remember being involved with that re-build are: Steve Morgan, Ron Collis, Tim Apps, Ian Castell, Colin Gray, Peter Gray(?) Craig Swindon, Bruce Jones, myself, and also 2 of the Newborough crew (Howitt Rovers?) Ray Bates & Perry Black....John Gloz

Comment

It is Mike Larkin who is the Scouter at Narracan Falls camp. I was not there, but we had similar fun at Connan Park at CAMP 67, a District camp in January. We had a rotten fruit fight, with two boxes of ripe tomatoes from Wakefield's (?) greengrocery. Mike was the Scoutmaster of Herne's Oak Troop and later Asst SM at Yallourn. The other pics look like Scouts building a triangular trestle at one of the District SCOUTARAMA events we held in the 1960s. I was ASM 1st Yallourn through 1964, and then returned to the Valley as DSM Strzelecki in 1966.
