At our usual club night on 8 November 2017, WTMC celebrated its 70th birthday. Volunteers had put together some excellent photo boards with photos of club members out in the hills from the last seven decades. Illona bought along some old-fashioned tramping gear for us to marvel at, including the “kidney crusher” and the “mountain mule”. The names alone made us feel grateful that tramping gear has improved so much over the years! Illona also invited club members to share their memories. Finally, there was a 70th birthday cake (well, two cakes) which candles which the current President blew out. Happy 70th birthday WTMC!
