In 1979 & 81 the International Mapping Cup was eagerly sought after by both the Canberra and Dandenong Offices on the Cricket field on the impartial turf of Corowa. It being the nominal halfway point between the two cities and close to some nice wine.
The results are 'lost' to history (in the spirit of brotherhood) but the gatherings forged a closer bond between the staff of the two offices who at best only knew each other via telephone.
When looking at the faces it is sad to reflect that a number have already passed on but their contribution to those days will be remembered.
Apologies if my "facial recognition" is incorrect and please let the VIC Editor know so any errors can be corrected.

The original negatives have been provided by Alan Scott and scanned at high resolution and digitally mosaiced to provide the image here. This image is capable of significant on-screen enlargement.[Ozcan Ertok did not make the photo or the omissions list so I give him special mention here - Ed]
