Club Night November 2021

November 8th Club Night was attended by 17 people.

 

Trip Reports: 10 trampers went to Hermit’s Cave in the Silverpeaks area, up Green Ridge to Pulpit Rock and then to Hermit’s Cave. Going above the cave gave a view of Jubilee Hut and there are two more caves in the area and a number of tracks to discover on other trips. 

      A group went to Dunedin  and to Signal Hill which gave good views of the Otago Peninsula and out to sea . There are also lots of tracks to be explored in this area.

 

      Wednesday Walkers went to Duntroon and walked to Elephant rocks and back;they covered 14 km. The next week they did the Domett Loop. A trip went from Anderson’s Lagoon to the Shag River mouth  to look at nesting shags and their young in the colony along the cliffs, as well as sea lions on the beach.. There was a good farm walk up from Tussocky Road to Big Stony . The Wanderers went to a spot above the Shag River mouth, and walked some of the Mountain bike tracks in Herbert Forest, followed by a spectacular garden walk in the area. 

 

     The main business of the evening was Trip Planning for the Summer Programme, and this produced ideas for some exciting and different summer tramps and bike rides for a range of abilities, which will be something to look forward to.
