Stepping in as guest speaker, Michael Tymensen spoke to the club on his family's participation in the Oxfam Trail walker.
Oxfam Trail walker began in 1981 as a military training exercise for the elite Queen's Gurkha Signals Regiment in Hong Kong.
It has since grown into one of the world's leading team endurance challenges with over 250,000 people taking part and more than $210 million raised in support of Oxfam's work.
In 2007 Michael together with his father, at 62, and two brothers entered the 100km walk, where you had 48 hours to complete the walk.
The walk started in Jells Park in Ferntree Gully and made its way through the Dandenong's and finished at Wesburn Park, near Warburton.
Walking as a team with check points evert 10 km's they had a support crew who provided meals, the team raised $8,000.
In the heat of the day, with the temperature reaching 35 degrees, Michael's father suffered heat exhaustion, but drinking plenty of fluids recovered.
Half way through the walk, Michael's two brothers started to develop blisters.  His older brother decided to rip the skin off, and when he did it, passed out cold for a few minutes, then came good and was fine for the rest of the walk.
They finished the walk just on daylight at about 6 am, the walk taking just under 24 hours.
Michael said it was a great experience and to complete the walk with family made it even more special.
