I'm doing a day walk up to Kime, maybe Hector if we're up for it.
The plan is to get to the forks at 8 am. It should take 4 hours to Kime and another hour to Hector from there. It'll take about the same time to get back and we'll stop for lunch somewhere along the way. For all people taking the train, you can be dropped back at the train Satuday evening.
I'll be heading up Friday night on the train, come talk to me (or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to come up Friday. Otherwise, you'll need to make your own way there on Saturday morning.
Gear: You'll need to bring snacks, lunch, water and lots of warm clothes including a raincoat and a backpack to carry it.
This trip is medium-fit but we won't be carrying much gear.
Cost is the train, $13 each way.
If you have any questions please get in touch with me, I'll be at the meeting tonight (4th) or you can email/call me. 0220815912 email@example.com

Avalance course through Hilary Outdoors!!! See here for more details.
This is a one day course on the 1st August.
We will go up to Ruapehu on the Friday, stay somewhere, do the course on Saturday, and probably stay another night leaving sunday to ski, explore, build snowmen, etc.
You must also buy a lift pass for the Saturday or have a season pass - these can be purchaced through the Whakapapa website.
Prerequisites of going:
- Must have done an AIC course, or had good experience in snowy terrain. Knowing how to use an iceaxe, crampons is essential.
- Although spaces are limited to six people, this is not a first come first served. Spaces will go to people who will use the skills the most, and who will give back to the club the most.
- If you have a car.... that's great ;)
- If you want to go you should probably talk to either the Chief Guide or Assistant Chief Guide.
Cost is TBC but the club will be subsidising it a bit.

If you want a bunk, food (not lunch or snacks), transport also sign up. i.e. if you want to go skiing or something.
But anyway, I'm happy to head up to Whakapapa, Ruapehu and go over the basics of using crampons/ice axes or go for a wander etc.
Required gear includes waterproof jacket and overtrousers and sturdy boots that can take crampons, if you're unsure about the suitablity bring them a meeting and one of the committee can check them. And of course plenty of warm baselayers, midlayers, gloves etc... The club will provide crampons, ice axes, helmets.
Bring your own lunch and snacks.
2x Breakfasts, Dinner, Desert are provided.
Cost will be roughly $130-$150 maybe

As always on Wednesday, we go to Hangdog out in Petone to go bouldering and climbing. We meet at 6 pm at hunter carpark. No skill or equipment needed. Bring $16 for your entry and a few coins for your drivers
Paying a gold coin to the driver is important as they need to pay for gas otherwise they will just stop offering and we all lose.
Spaces are limited, so quick, get amongst. if it is full, sign up anyways, there might be some more spots becoming available during the day.
If you are able to provide a car please do, as the more the merrier and we can only carpool if we have cars, otherwise, trains are $11 each
Here is a map of the kelburn campus to help you find the Hunter Carpark. Map reference 24h.
