HiTAC October 2018

President’s Desk

Just a reminder that the feature event for October club night is the Open Climb induction. Attendance is essential for all of those club members who would like to help out with the Open Climb on Saturday 16 February 2019. Every three years our Open Climb Safety Plan is audited by OutdoorsMark, and that audit is currently in progress. Following the induction we’ll view a screening of the movie “Mountain” (2017) an absolutely top movie.

With the downstairs renovation of Tahurangi Lodge commencing on 1 October, all downstairs locker holders should by now have emptied their locker and left it unlocked. The upgrade project will be needing plenty of volunteer help from club members. Any time you can contribute to the project will be hugely appreciated. Please contact Project Volunteer Coordinator John Thomason to advise of your availability, see details elsewhere in this newsletter.

With summer weather just around the corner, it won’t be long before the DOC huts get busy. If you are interested in assisting as a volunteer Hut Warden over the summer period get in touch with DOC staff at the Rimu Street office.

As mentioned last month, the club Photo Competition will feature at our December club night. See elsewhere in this HiTac for all the info you need to prepare your entries.
