The pilot was taxiing the aircraft for takeoff. The taxiway runs adjacent to the verandah of the Wagin Aero Club. As the aircraft passed the Aero Club, a book that the pilot was using fell to the cockpit floor. The pilot reached down to retrieve the book and as a result his attention was distracted from control of the aircraft. The left wing, outboard leading edge, collided with a verandah post causing substantial damage.
