25 October : Dennis Page – A Bavarian - Tyrolean Odyssey

At the end of August 2016, eight HVTC members, led by Graeme Lythgoe, embarked on a walking and cycling journey centred on northern and central Italy. At the start of the journey, the group assembled in Munich, Germany for some sightseeing before heading to the Italian Tyrol via Salzburg. Tonight, Dennis Page will present the first of three trip talks and will detail where the group trekked through, and the sights they saw, as they traversed the Dolomites on foot from Cortina D'Ampezzo to Campitello and eventually onto Bolzano to prepare for their 3 module cycle tour (to be covered in two subsequent talks). Join us tonight as we showcase some of western Europe's finest castles, history and, of course, alpine scenery.


1 November : Graeme Lythgoe – Haast Cattle Track
Last March Graeme Lythgoe led an extended tramp into this area of South Westland. It is an area that the Club has probably not visited before. Tonight he will talk about this tramp and some of the history of the area.


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

If you have any suggestions for speakers, or would like to give a presentation yourself, please contact

Ron or Hetty at club night, or email details to
