Christ­mas in the Bush

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

The Rush­worth Prospect­ing Club en­ter­tained mem­bers, vis­i­tors and guests with a Christ­mas-themed party in the Whroo for­est.

With 40 in at­ten­dance the fes­tive pro­ceed­ings in­volved club-pro­vided bar­be­cue meats and a mag­nif­i­cent ar­ray of sal­ads and sweets ably pre­pared by the mem­bers.

Cer­tainly some fine five-star din­ing in the Aussie bush.

More than 20 car­a­van sin­gles and cou­ples took the op­por­tu­nity to camp in the bush for the oc­ca­sion, while 10 made an evening trip.

A dec­o­rated ta­ble com­pe­ti­tion, a Kris Kringle and a raf­fle also took place.

Many mem­bers also took the op­por­tu­nity to do some gold de­tect­ing, re­main­ing in the

per­sons lo­ca­tion for four to five days, but the gold was elu­sive and only min­i­mal amounts were found.

The club’s Christ­mas out­ing was the last for this cal­en­dar year and they will not re­sume de­tect­ing pur­suits un­til the weather is a lit­tle cooler around Fe­bru­ary next year.

Fun: The cel­e­bra­tion be­gins at Chi­na­man’s Hill.
