In January, five members of the VUW Tramping Club led by Ivan Andrews set out on an 11-day Southern Alps crossing from the Rakaia to the West Coast via the Bracken snowfield and Ivory Lake Hut.
In June 2017, Carol and Ray Molineux did a 14-day rafting trip down the Alsek River between Haines Junction in Canada and the coast in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. The Alsek drains the eastern edge of one of the world’s largest non-polar ice-caps and flows through an area of incredible, pristine wilderness.
Come along from 7.00 pm and enjoy a drink and nibbles followed by a fun evening of quizzing and prizes. There will be a raffle with proceeds going toward supporting young people in the club.
During the past eleven years Paul has combined his interests in climbing and writing about mountaineering. He is the author of a biography of the legendary Bill Denz and is currently working on a history of mountaineering in New Zealand, told through 25 selected climbs. Copies of the Denz biography will be available for sale at the meeting for $40 cash.
From 1946 to 1964, George Borthwick was raised and educated in a multicultural home for orphans and abandoned children in Kalimpong, a hill station in the Darjeeling District and frontier town on the borders of Sikkim, Tibet and Bhutan. Local wildlife included jackals, wild dogs, monkeys, the odd tiger or elephant, flying foxes, exotic birds and a huge variety of flora and fauna.
