Plan for the best, prepare for the worst

All club tramps, both daytrips and overnight tramps, are listed on our Fixture Card. To go on an trip please contact the trip leader directly; email and telephone details are on the Fixture Card.

For an overnight trip it is necessary to contact the leader well in advance of the trip date, to allow for organisation of foodgroups and transport.

Trips are graded, see the trip grading to decide if the trip is suitable for you. If you are not known to the trip leader, he or she will need to interview you to gain some idea of your tramping experience and level of fitness. The leader decides who is eligible to go on a trip.

We have regular day walks on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. In order to be on the mailing list of the trips that interest you, please contact the Trip Organiser of the day concerned. For some activities we have email newsgroups, please subscribe to the group that interests you.

If you wish to lead a trip you may find it useful to discuss it with the Adventure Coordinator or the Trip Organiser of the activity that interests you.

For information about where the tracks are located contact the Adventure Coordinator, read Tararua Footprints, search our trip reports, or check out New Zealand Tramper. Here is a link to the Walking Access Commission, and its mapping system WAMS, and its Outdoor Access Code

Here is the link to the Greater Wellington Enviromental Monitoring and Research site where you can access information about windspeed, rainfall, and much, much more.

Trip Leaders are welcome to download the trip report form, complete it and email it to the Club Night Tramping Organiser to report. Tramping Organisers Tish Glasson -> mailto:ttc-tramping-organiser [snail] ttc [period] org [period] nz?Subject=Query%20from%20TTC%20website on 022 013 1516 need the reports for the following Tuesday trip announcements. However, late reports with additional information are also appreciated.

Be a great tramper, follow the Minimum Impact Code and Environmental Care Code

Day Trips

Boots must be worn - other footwear is unsuitable unless the trip leader agrees otherwise. Always take parka, warm clothing, drink, lunch, snack food (chocolate or dried fruit) and torch. Consider the need for other Weekend Gear items. A change of clothes for the homeward journey is often a good idea.

Leadership

Overdue Trips

Note to parents, relatives or friends of members on Club trips: Should a party be late in returning, please do not worry unduly as this happens often and there are probably good reasons for their delay. If you are in doubt please contact the Adventure Coordinator, a Tramping Organiser or the President.

Safety

See the seven rules of outdoor safety. Ensure that every trip is planned properly: If you have any concerns about safety on a Club trip please contact the Adventure Coordinator or President.

Trampers First Aid

Have a read on the Bushcraft Pages for basic Trampers' First Aid. Take a lightweight first aid manual and a first aid kit that you know how to use. People take kits that suit their level of knowledge, so here are links to Nina Sawicki's First Aid Kit and Dave Reynold's First Aid notes.

Accidents

If a Club Trip is involved in or with an accident, please contact one of the Club Search and Rescue officials, Adventure Coordinator or a Tramping Organiser. A report of the circumstances and actions taken should be filled out and sent to the Adventure Coordinator as soon as possible.
