Tony and Greg went to the big city on a mission to inspect some hoop pine which has been donated to RIG by an arborist at Smithfield. The timber was milled from a hoop pine which was planted in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens back in the 1850s and is in very good condition. Help will be needed to get it to American River.
They then carried on to address a meeting of the Trailer Sailer Association of South Australia about what we are doing at American River. After a night at Kevin's getting to know each other really well, the intrepid pair were interviewed by Ali Clark for ABC 891 and the interview was broadcast on Thursday 4 May.
