The Monaro Tribes, Gordon, Lawson, Kendall and Paterson met again in this year of 1957 A.D. at the Sportsground, and although the weather had not agreed with us earlier in the week, we were greeted by beautiful sunshine and cloudless blue skies, helping us to create many new records and enabling us to present many close finishes. The carnival was organised by Mr. and Mrs. Packett and as time was too short to hold all the events on that same day, the broad jumps were held before, while the cross country run, in which there were some splendid performances by D. McGufficke and C. Conway was held after the Canberra visit.
