One of the best things about being part of a Physie club is going away on trips with your club.  One of the most vivid physie memories I have is back in 1980 when our club went up to Grafton to take part in the Jacaranda Festival to help promote the newly-founded Grafton Physie Club.  We performed for the town and were then in the street parade, doing our physie on a moving float! (That’s me on the left with a lime green medal sash)  It was a wonderful time of new experiences, shared with my physie friends, that I will  never forget.

It’s wonderful to see that 35 years later, clubs are still creating these experiences for their members, like Hinchinbrook’s physie camp in Wollongong. Nearly 60 members and mums braved the cold to enjoy workshops in stretching, marching, dance styles and expression. Apart from learning lots of new skills, they had lots of fun with BBQs, walks and swimming (bbrrr!). It was a great opportunity to make new physie friends and enjoy new experiences together.  Sharleen, a new member of the ladies class said “It was fun to learn new ideas and techniques”.  Holly said “The workshops were really helpful.” And according to Madison and Montana, they enjoyed the stretches and learning how to march properly but the best part was “eating breakfast in our PJs with our friends!”

May the physie road trip tradition continue well into the future…
