HiTAC February 2018

President’s Desk

Happy new year everyone and welcome to 2018. First up is the Club Barbecue on Thursday 1st February at 6.00 pm at the usual venue Audrey Gale Reserve, Merrilands Domain. The club will supply a barbecue, just bring along your own meats, salads and drinks and don’t forget your cricket gear and togs for a swim.

The Open Climb registrations opened early December and at the time of writing there are 132 participants registered. Registrations are coming in steadily so it is quite possible that the event will be fully booked with 200 participants. For those helping out on the day, I will be forwarding an updated Crew plan and information relevant to your role shortly.

Plenty happening on the trips front – see this HiTac for further details and make sure you contact Sophie early to book your place. Some great photos on the club facebook page of last weekend’s rock climbing trip over to Froggatt Edge and Castle Rock, Wharepapa South. Awesome to see both young and old (no offence!) enjoying this great rock climbing area.

Also just a reminder, the club’s AGM is coming up on Thursday 1st March. Please diary this date, as a quorum of 20 is needed. This is your opportunity to come along and have a say in how the club will be run for the next 12 months. The club Trophies are also presented at the AGM.
