June Committee Meeting
Your new committee has held its first meeting. Part of that was a discussion on the Winter Solstice. The current programme has the Sat trampers going to Triplex Hut on Sat/Sun 29/30 June but with little info on their tramping plans.
The Wednesday trampers intended to go to Middle Hill Hut on the 19th with some suggestions re a shared lunch to celebrate the Solstice.
So it has been decided:
1) Wed 19th Tramp to M H Hut as programmed. No solstice involvement. Bruce is the T/O.
2) Sat/Sun 29/30 Tramp moved to an overnight at Makino Hut with options (eg doing the circuit via the river and Te Puia Lodge) for Sat and Sunday. Juliet is the T/O.
3) Sat 22nd is the true Solstice day and to celebrate it will be lunch/brunch/coffee (your choice) at the Puketapu Hotel from noon. Getting there by bike or car. Bikes leaving PGA at 11.15. Kelvin will be the coordinator.
The first day of winter brought snow to the Kaweka Ranges. Photo taken 1st June from Kaweka Flats, looking towards the main Kaweka Range.
The Wednesday 19th June tramp is to Middle Hill Hut.
