The Wellington Tramping and Mountaineering Club will be holding its next New Members’ Night on Wednesday, 9 October from 7:30pm. The night is a chance to reach out to those who are keen to join us, or to just get out in the great New Zealand outdoors for the first time. The schedule is a bit of a change for us – we normally do the information evening in February each year, but this time around we thought we would switch things up and try and catch people early in the season as we’re coming out of winter hibernation and the weather is starting to get warmer.
The night will feature a pretty relaxed atmosphere, with tea, cake, and bikkies for all. Our Club President Sharron will give a short presentation about the club, and after that people will be free to wander around and ask questions or sign up for trips. The Chief Guide’s team has done a good job of getting a bundle of easy to medium trips up on the schedule around that time to give those interested in coming along a few options for their first outings with the club.
If you are already a club member then we would love for you to help out. You can offer to staff one of the tables, or come along and mingle and chat, or if you really want to help you can whip up a cake to share for supper. Again, email to volunteer or to find out more.
