Ruapehu Lodge Photo Competition

Share this post

The lodge subcommittee is keen to promote the lodge not only as accommodation for skiers and boarders but also as an attractive base for summer adventures – day walks, weekend tramps, rock climbing, summer skiing, MTBing, canyoning, sunny BBQs on the deck at the end of a day, and lots more. 

As part of this we are organising a club photo competition to get some exciting pictures for our web pages, Facebook and other publicity material. Starting immediately here are the very simple rules: 

  • All photos need to have a ‘lodge theme’. What this means is entirely up to you – but photos of your cat on the bed at home are unlikely to win you a prize. An example pic is below.
  • Photos may be any resolution, taken on any camera – but clearly better quality photos will be more useful.  
  • Closing date for entries is 31 May 2018. 
  • Send all entries to zn.gr1519296754o.cmt1519296754w@lan1519296754ruoj1519296754 at full resolution. 
  • Entries will be judged by members’ vote on a club Wednesday meeting sometime in June. 
  • We have some cool prizes. First prize is a free weekend for two people at the lodge. Second and third prizes are Bivouac vouchers.

So – simple as. All you have to do now is get up to the lodge and start clicking. There will be a number of club trips scheduled to the mountain over summer to get you started – but remember club members can book and use the lodge at any time and non-members are welcome to come along. Additionally the lodge will be open between 26 December to 7 January – just rock up – no booking required.

Happy snapping.
