Goldfields Trip Preparation

Preparation for the trip

Some of the plaques ready to polish


Time flies and the intrepid volunteers of OGM are about to head out to the Goldfields again to install more plaques.
This trip will include Comet Vale, Coolgardie, Goongarie, Kookynie, Laverton, Leonora, Mt Margaret, Menzies, Mertondale, Mulline, Ora Banda, Siberia, Wideiemooltha, Wiluna and Sunday Soak, a mammoth effort.

 There have been some challenges along the way with plaque production, but with the efforts of the committee and others al has been overcome and there will be 315 plaques installed on this trip.

The trip will be about 16 days, subject to conditions, and a lot of work with a little bit of R&R along the way.
There was a busy bee at Trevor's last week to play catch up on the plaques, owing to unforeseen circumstances, and attached are some pic's of the work being done.
Looking forward to a successful and safe trip.
