  • New web site for ACT Walkers Over the next couple of months, this site will be migrating to a new home at www.actwalkers.com.au   ( probably nothing there yet). This current  google site, even though has plenty of google tools to be utilised, is very limiting in what it can do and its appearance. So, am looking forward to moving it to a new home and giving the club a much better web site. If anyone would like to help with this process, please contact  me. Thanks Phil
