Tuesday meeting - "The Hidden Tararuas"

Hi all

 This Tuesday as a lead-up to the hut bagging weekend there is a special guest at the club night.  Jonathan Kennett, ex-VUWTC and well known adventurer (and author of the super-classic MTB'sing guidebook) will be coming to talk.  His talk will focus on some of the hidden gems of the Tararuas - from the remote little huts to the deep green gorges.

Jonathan has just released a guide book to adventures in the Tararuas and will be selling these for a discounted price.  It's a great read full of useful trip ideas and some great photos so come along and pick up a copy ($20).

 There will also be a sign-up for the trip on the weekend - although feel free to sign up here too.

We've got just under 30 people so far, so it'll be a really fun weekend.  We still need more though!  If you can only do a day trip or part of the weekend eg Fri/Sat or Sat/Sun, don't worry there will be groups going at those times.

If you can take off early on the Friday and get started, all the better too!

I've started putting people in groups and outlining some trips, so if you want to discuss where you might go come along on Tuesday and we can chat after the meeting.  I'll email all the leaders after that and they'll be in touch with food and transport etc by the middle of the week.

There is a big-*** storm hammering the country this weekend, so it must be good for next weekend eh ;-)

see you all on Tuesday - and in the hills on the 25/26 September!!
