HiTAC June 2018

President’s Desk

We are all looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend at the Hut Birthday celebrations for Tahurangi Lodge’s 50th Birthday. Join us for a Pot Luck lunch at the Camp House at North Egmont on Monday 4 June from 12 noon to 3 pm, including the traditional cake cutting. We have chosen the Camp House venue this year to enable all members, past and present, young and old, to be able to join us. Please spread the word to any past members who may like to join us for these special celebrations. Further details elsewhere in this HiTac.

The recent snowfall is looking good, a reminder that winter is upon us. And with winter comes the pitter patter of little feet…. namely mice in the Lodge! Please, please clean up all crumbs on the kitchen bench and floor so as to discourage these vermin. Lyn White does a brilliant job trapping them, but it would be nice not to see evidence of them in the kitchen area.

Club night for Thursday 7 June is a talk from Andy Johnston from our local DOC office. Andy is a long-standing member of the New Plymouth DOC team, so I think we will be guaranteed a very interesting and informative evening.

And last thing, a quick reminder about subs. Make sure you’ve paid by 1 June in order to avoid the 20% late penalty. Any queries, contact our Treasurer.
