Tri - Y Walkabout

Hundreds of people turned out in support of the three local Y.M.C.A's and walked the 20-odd miles from Nelson to Richmond (or the equivalent) and back in the Tri-Y Walkabout. By the end of the walk there were many sore feet, blisters and aching muscles from the unaccustomed activity but the Y.M.C.A's benefited.
