Guest Speaker

Scot Whiley on ‘House Swapping’

 

 

Scott gave us a great insight of the opportunities of house swapping.  Scott and his wife have enjoyed wonderful holidays on most continents of the world at little cost.  His slide show was most enjoyable featuring both countries visited and homes exchanged. He made a point of telling us that his own home was always in excellent condition when he returned to Tasmania.

 

Outing Reports

  • On 15th September 14 members (including 3 members from Central Coast Probus) went on a historic tour around Squeaking Point.  This was a brilliant day both in weather and the quality of the tour.  John Paice guided a walk around Squeaking Point pointing out the location of historic buildings including shacks owned by families for generations and the Dyer home.  Later Snow Thomas gave a fascinating educational talk explaining Port Sorell was once a big port.
