High winds stymie some travel plans, but we keep busy nonetheless.

Weekly roundup

And so another week races by here at Mawson. Elvis (aka Linc) organised another quiz night for us on Friday which was music themed and tested the multi-generational audience.

The two groups that were planning to head out into the field over the weekend for ‘jollies’ had to put their plans on hold due to high winds on Saturday. This meant a last-minute numbers change for Saturday dinner that Chef Donna rallied to perfectly, and we had a lovely candlelit ‘family’ dinner in the Mess with everyone lingering to chat.

The wind dropped off by Sunday morning so the field groups headed out to the Central Masson Range for a day trip and to have a good look around that part of the plateau. Many photos were taken.

Stay tuned for further news of our new ‘boy’ band…
