Social Corner – March 2010

social-convenor-2009Big thank you to everybody who came on New Members Night. Apparently the most people, ever, signed up to help out and you’ll all know how many new faces there were there. The rough estimate of peoples in the hall that night was about loo. Our success that night, in part, can also be measured in those signing up for trips, which were all over booked. Fabulous!

Also a big thank you to Sharron Came for her fabulous presentation on the mammoth south island trip over Christmas/ New Year. Another packed Wednesday night in which we were enthralled and in awe of their intrepid journey through the Garden of Allah and Satan’s Col. Not to mention the helicopter!

You may have heard rumours of a Tramping Ball, well now it’s official! Make sure you keep the evening of the 21st August 2010 free for THE social event of the year. There’ll be dinner, dancing and opportunity to fraternise…. not just with the opposite sex, but with other trampers and outdoor folks from around Wellington. All welcome, make sure your friends know (as long as they not the type to soil the venue….). There will be deals coming up for early bird tickets. Watch this space…

Congratulations to our esteemed president Darren and his partner, Sandra. They sealed the deal with a civil union ceremony on the 26th of February! Best wishes to both for now and the future.
