|9 Dec, Sun||Save Kosci: Charlotte Pass to summit and return (unless we walked it yesterday)|
|General Community Event|
|Save Kosci walk: day 37. Contacts on the morning: try 0473 919 441 or 0409 764 785 or 0488 071 203. Suggest you persist till you hear a human voice – unfortunately text messages and left-messages may get missed in the rush. The main group of walkers will head up the closed road from Charlotte Pass to the summit, 19 km return. Small groups will be converging on the summit from other directions – so far we know of two groups walking in from Victoria, one along the Main Range, one from Guthega and one up Hannels Spur. Walkers seeking an easier day can walk from Thredbo Top Station. The several lines of yellow-vested walkers converging on the summit at lunch time will make a great shot from the air, for which Save Kosci is hiring a helicopter. On the summit, please stay on tracks and rocky ground to be kind to the vegetation. Impeccable courtesy to regular tourists please, the media will be watching. After the walk, return to your lodge or drive home (or keep walking, if you are doing the AAWT!) Parking: Please park in Charlotte Pass village and arrange own car shuffles or walk up to Charlotte Pass turning circle (i.e. leave some space near Charlotte Pass for regular tourists). Three Save Kosci support drivers will be assisting with shuffling walkers to the start. Start: Turning circle at Charlotte Pass i.e. at locked gate on Kosciuszko Road. Please arrive between 7:30 and 8:15am for an 8:30am start. Collect yellow vests and sign in. Re-group at Rawsons Pass 11:15 am to 11:45am, rather than head on up at your own pace (better for photos). Arrive summit 12:15 to 12:30pm. Lunch on summit. Wave at helicopter. Not planning any speeches. Return at own pace, aim to be back at trail head by 4pm. Sign out and optionally return yellow vests. Accommodation: Own arrangements. Transport to start and at end of day: Own arrangements. For more info and to register go to https://savekosci.org/ View|
