7 July Personal Locator Beacons

Personal Locator Beacons

You're off track, the way forward is blocked, the wind and rain are getting worse by the hour, and some members of your party are becoming hypothermic. It's time to get out the Personal Locator Beacon (PLB). Last year Josh Tabor found himself in this situation in the Tararuas.

14 July Canals, gorges et montagnes – sans un âne

Canals, gorges et montagnes – sans un âne

To celebrate la fête du 14-juillet, Paddy Gresham takes us along the historic Canal du Midi from Toulouse to Carcassonne, into the Gorge du Verdon in Haute Provence, and along the walking trails of the Cevennes mountain range in south-central France, made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson’s book Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes.

21 July The Club’s tramping song traditions

The Club’s tramping song traditions

Michael Brown researched the Club's tramping song traditions for his PhD. With Peter Barber he will lead a rousing sing along of selections from the Club’s song book. Cake and gluhwein will be served - there will be a $4 door charge to cover the cost.

28 July Tales about Wellington’s archaeology

Tales about Wellington’s archaeology

Heritage consultant Mary O’Keefe looks at some of the infrastructure building projects she has worked on and what they tell us about the growth of the city and community of Wellington.

Kime through time

Paul Maxim will again show the 16-minute film Kime Hut - Through the Ages and present a photographic history of the Hector Dogbox and the three Kime huts. The film will be shown in tribute to Maurice Perry, who was very actively involved in hut building projects, and who died just one month after its first screening last November.
