Please keep our Immediate Past President Stephen Ganko
and his family in your thoughts as we await further news on
his fate and that of his companions in Nepal.
 
Following the devastating earthquake in Nepal yesterday, during all of
the confusion, one of his party was able to make contact with his wife in
Graceville to let her know that everyone in their party was alright.
 
At the time of the earthquake they were at Everest Base Camp.
Although they had no exit strategy at the time, information flowing from
DEFAT is saying that all airports are now open and they will be running
international flights around the clock.
 
Unconfirmed news reports have stated that they have helicopters getting
the injured out so perhaps they will be evacuated soon.
 
I will post more as I receive information.
