HiTAC July 2017

President’s Desk

Awesome turnout for the Tuataras club night presentation earlier this month. What a credit to the club those guys and girls are, with both their national and international achievements! I hope you’ve all got your tickets for their Fundraiser Quiz night on Friday 30 June (see the facebook page for further info).

By now everyone should have received their FMC Membership card in the post. Your FMC Card provides valuable discounts on DOC’s Annual Hut Pass and at many outdoor retailers including Bivouac, Gearshop and Macpac. Click the link below to find out more: www.fmc.org.nz/discount-card. There is one FMC card issued per membership, however additional cards can be purchased from the TAC Treasurer at a cost of $15.00. You’ll need these if more than one family member requires a discounted Annual Hut Pass.

Just an update on current Exec members – Will Archibald has elected to resign in order to devote more time to his studies, however we’ve managed to drag an old hand back on board to fill the gap. Welcome Alec Heilbron!

Members have expressed interest in finding out more about the Taranaki Maunga negotiations, and elsewhere in this newsletter you will find information explaining where the negotiations are up to. Remember you can also view the terms of negotiation on the Office of Treaty Settlements’ website.

As usual Sophie is busy organising more awesome club trips. Keep an eye on the facebook page for the latest info, so you don’t miss out!
