If you are new to the club or don't know where we meet check out Clubnights  


23 August: Ross Bidmead – Dusky Sound Kayaking Ross's family and friends explored Dusky sound by kayak in the first two weeks of January 2016. It was a remarkably fine weather period and they found far more good camping sites and had time to explore many of the historic sites of the region. They also ate more crayfish and caught more huge cod than they thought was possible.


30 August: Hetty Cameron – European Hiking Highlights Earlier this year Hetty and Ron spent 9 wonderful weeks travelling around Europe. They warmly invite you to come and share some of their outdoor adventures. Their hikes included the Seven Sisters, the Austrian Alps, the Amalfi Coast and Mount Etna. Come and find out which they enjoyed most and why!!


6 September: Don Herron – Northland New Zealand: a land of extremes In March this year Erica and Don spent two weeks north of Auckland. Their 3000km plus road trip took it all in. From the mighty Kauri forests to the rugged isolated beaches of Cape Reinga they did it all. Come along to find out all the best spots in the winterless north.


The club is always interested to hear from anybody wanting to be considered as a Wednesday night guest speaker and is open to suggestions.
