That is a most excellent suggestion which I hereby endorse.

Google Earth suggests it is a ~45 minute trip to the start point so I suggest leaving the Club at 0815.  
I will be going via Bungendore so will meet folk at the Lagoon Rest  area.  If anyone else wishes to car pool at the Mick Sherd Oval in Bungendore please let me know.

May I suggest a car pooling station at the Canberra North Bowling Club at Turner, where perhaps a distinct few could perhaps have a first viewing of Turner, the powerful owl, subject to availability of course.

With the kind cooperation of the leaseholder, the October Wednesday Walk will be to Rose Lagoon, on 21 October.  We will start from the rest area off the Federal Highway about 7km North of Collector at 9am on that date (extract from Google Earth attached).  I'd welcome any suggestions as to a suitable car pooling spot in North Canberra- preferably one that doesn't involve extortionate parking fees and is reasonably secure.

As there is about 150Ha of Snow Gum and Candlebark woodland to explore, as well as the Lagoon itself I would expect this to be a longer outing than many that we do: thus I suggest that folk pack some lunch and as it might be getting warm remember to bring some water.

People should also note that with the area being damp, and the weather no longer frosty, there is a good chance of meeting a snake or ten.  I suggest that attendees wear gaiters or gumboots, and if seriously worried by reptiles do not attend this outing.

It is possible this outing will get a mention in the Canberra Times so we might have a few new members turn up.

If "someone" could add this to the Trips page of the website that would be excellent.
