Christmas wishes to all our readers and club members. Stay safe during this Christmas and New Year holiday season, and looking forward to our 2015 tramping calendar which is posted on the website.
Christmas Bbq: Sunday December 14th. This year the Bbq was be held at Omatua Girl Guide Grounds in Rissington. This is on Puketitiri Road, on the right, just before the bridge over the Mangone River. We were fortunate to have this venue, as the weather was atrocious for any outdoor activity. We lit the fire in the dinning hall, and had a great time indoors, whilst Kelvin bbq’d the burgers and sausages etc, under cover on the verandah. A great place for indoor and outdoor functions. Many thanks to the Girl Guide Association.
The club have funded the park bench on the Tironui Drive to Sugarloaf walk. This is through Napier Council reserve land, and the seat has been sited at a viewpoint to the southern Ruahine Ranges and also to the Cape Kidnappers coastline. The dedication that was planned on Monday December 1st, did not eventuate due to heavy rain. This will be rescheduled in early 2015.
