Farewell Jack Oldfield. The high country lost another of its figures in October when Jack Oldfield passed away. Jack had a long association with the mountains and had links with many huts in Namadgi National Park.

Jack is a stallwart of KHA. A quiet man, he makes his presence felt at the sharp end of hut workparties.

Jane began on the KHA committee as the Secretary in 1996 and 1997. After attending one workparty (just to satisfy a couple of insistent committee members) she found she was hooked, and in May 1998 took up the position of HMO North.
