COBB WORKSHOP Because of the Total Fire Ban that was in force, the how to cook a roast in the Cobb workshop was postponed to the next afternoon. However, Margaret had already baked a cake the day before, so this part of the workshop went ahead.

   After repeated attempts to bake a cake without a burnt bottom in the Cobb, Margaret has now perfected the technique with the use of another bottom to disperse the heat. There will be a detailed article in tech tips shortly. The demonstration was assisted by Julianne.

Accompanying the band was bush poet Jimmy Brown. Jimmy recited a number of his own poems as well as a few by fellow bush poets.
