For a few hours, the reserve was transformed into a haven for make believe diamond smugglers, tourists and customs officers as the scouts from Bramble Bay district took part in a roll playing wide game. The tourists tried to bargain with the smugglers to buy the diamonds at the best possible price and then sell them to the local storekeeper at a good profit  At the same time, the customs officers wer trying to catch the smugglers in the act, in which case they would be transferred to the local jail and have to do some scouting tasks (like showing their knot tying skills) before being released to continue with the game..Tourists were given $500 and were scored on the profit they returned in a 2 hour period. Amazingly, some tourists were able to hand in $4000 at the end of the session.

Our Bushies worked on the mountain of Mulch provided by the Brisbane City Council. We are continuing to spread some of it over the large salt pan near the car park and we can already see grass starting to grow. Other members continue with weed removal, but our numbers are not large enough to allow us to attack all the beds..

We began spreading some mulch over the large Salt Pan to see if it will encourage geass the grow over the area. This remains the only area not covered by grass or beds, and it has long been the ambition of our Bushies to encourage some grass to grow in this area.
