Big Hill Station Permit
We have been lucky to get a permit to drive through Big Hill Station, for a week in June 20-26th 2014. Let’s get our thinking caps on, for trips you would like do. The November tramp went very well, the picture below is taken at Dianne’s Hut. See the full trip report soon to be posted on the website.
NTC 40th Anniversary Diner, October 2.
The diner will be held at a venue (yet to be advised).
Respecting private farmland
We would like to remind all club members that where a tramp passes through private farmland, permission must be sought prior to the tramp. This is a basic courtesy, and club policy.
Ruahine Forest Park Hut and Tracks – DOC ReviewThe club’s views on the possible removal of huts and tracks in the Ruahine Forest Park. The club’s view is that we would be disappointed if such action were necessary. We wish to ensure that consultation not only with the local tramping and deerstalking groups occurs. A working group has been mooted as a way forward to get the mix of views of tramping and deerstalking clubs i.e. those that have been attending the two meetings that DOC have held to-date on the review. This is a positive step, and NTC will be playing its part by submitting opinion and options to the working group on how we all manage the future of the huts and tracks in the RFP.
Grab a bike, put on your comfy shoes, bring a friend or relation and join us for some social activities. No meetings or phone calls, just meet at the designated place, with a smile and change for coffee, ice cream etc. Check out the meetings diary page for more details.
Tell everybody uTRAMP!
Are you displaying the iTramp bumper sticker? The motif doesn’t replace the logo created in 1974, but is intended to promote the club. Stickers are available from Julia Mackie, and business cards from John Dobbs. Let’s show ourselves off to the world!
