1100hrs meet with Ted Leagas at Clackline Reserve, who will escort us to his property in Spencers Brook to view his Pinball and automobilia collection. What a collection years of work restoring these machines back to their glory. Morning tea was supplied for us all to enjoy while Ted gave us a run-down on his collection.

We all took our picnic lunch, thermos etc. Certainly opened our eyes to how these sheep dogs work and respond to their owners commands.

Scenic drive to return to Narrogin.

Evening meal this night was in the carpark so we all organized our own meal we had chicken and chips which Jenny McLennan kindly went into town and collected for most of us.
