Lots of Good Keen Club Trips Coming Up - Tramping Queens Birthday, Mid-Winter, Alpine Instruction Course and More!!!

There's a lot happening in the run up to the end of the trimester - and we're nearly half way through the year, so it's time to get out there doing stuff!!!

Queens Birthday will be in the Ruahines with a range of trips for everyone - Medium-Easy to Medium-Fit. This is a great trip to do if you're thinking of coming on Mid-Winter, especially if you haven't done (m)any trips with the club before. Check out the details here

Ever thought you might want to be a mountaineer or just want to go tramping in the snow, then AIC is for you! AIC is our Alpine Instruction Course running over the weekend of 29 June to 1 July. This is where we get to play in the snow and learn how to use crampons and ice axes and to learn a bit about avalanche risk. This is another good one if you are keen for a keen Mid-Winter. We will be staying at a lodge on Ruapehu so it will be a good social time as well.

Mid-Winter is the big kahuna for all of you keen trampers - it is where we spend a week in the South Island putting into practice the skills you've learnt so far. There should be a range of groups so you don't need to be a super tramper to come along - just been keen to spend a week in the hills. It does help if you've come along on some trips before so we can get you into the right group and to make sure you will enjoy it. It will run from about 7 to 15 July and will be in Arthurs Pass. There will be some cost involved getting to the South Island etc, but with a bit of forward planning there may be a chance of getting some funding from FMC.

Sign ups for AIC and Mid-Winter can be found here.

There is also a Somes Island trip, Tararua tramping, and around Mt Taranaki trips planned for June. Keep an eye out for details on the forums.

 And you can have input to the Trimester 2 calendar here.
