Social Corner – April 2010

social-convenor-2009Kia Ora

Winter is looming and looking like it will be a good one for those spectacular trips. We’ve had some very informative and entertaining presentations recently. The AGM went off without a hitch (even though Harry turned up for a short time!) We have more great Presentations to come. This is what is coming up.

  • April 28th – Melissa Hewson is talking about her Christmas trip in the Nelson Lakes area.
  • May 5th – Art Buehler is taking us for a walk on the Inca trail.
  • May 12th – Des Smith is from Zealandia and is talking to us about what we find in the bush and what we might be able to survive on.
  • May 19th – Brian Johnston will show us a few day walks he has been on.

This year WTMC are going to hold an interclub ball! This will be a great event and a chance for everyone to get dressed up into something other than shorts and tramping boots! So mark your calendars, its happening on Saturday the 21st August 2010.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sally Colbeck for everything she has done in the last year for the club and for me. We are losing her as Social Convenor but we will still get to see her face around as she will be collecting the trip money. I will miss our chats Sally and those cheery yellow dish gloves but I’m sure we will still have them (the chats that is!)

Thanks again and remember we are always looking for presenters and ideas for presentation if you don’t feel confident to give the talk. Talk to me on Wednesday nights or email me on
