Bob Guy - musician and KHA committee member - has written and performs this song in appreciation of Bob Hughes, the builder of 4 Mile Hut.
Your President received the following email that may be of interest to some KHA members:
My name is Jennifer Smart. I am undertaking a research study investigating visitors' use of the backcountry and wilderness areas of Kosciuszko National Park during the snow season. This includes those who are skiing or riding outside of the resort boundaries.
I was hoping you could pass onto your members, information about the survey and if they have been on a backcountry trip this snow season in KNP I would appreciate if they can please complete this survey by clicking on the following link:
Completion of the survey gives people the chance to go in the draw to win the following prizes:
1 x NSW All Parks Pass
3 x Hire Vouchers from Rhythm Snowsports
1 x day pack from Mont Adventure Equipment
I also need your help to spread the word…
Please tell your friends and colleagues who have or are going backcountry this snow season to please complete the survey. They can do it on computers, tablets and phones. If using a iPhone or iPad make sure you have the latest iOS 9.3.4. Your survey response is confidential and the data de-identified. I have attached a flyer as a method of promoting the survey.
This research project is being undertaken towards a honours program with the School of Business and Tourism at Southern Cross University. The SCU Ethics Approval number is ECN-16-202.

Thank you, I appreciate your time.
