Next events

# Sun 28th April - re-run of the Secondary Schools event at Pukekura
# Sun 12th May – Double event run just south of Wanganui by our neighbours, Red Kiwis. Marangi 10-11.30am, then Fusilier 1-2.30pm. These are OY (high quality) events in sand dune forest. A number of OT will be going down so if you are interested in coming along contact Jacqui 751 0676ah and we’ll see what we can do about car pooling.

# Sunday in late May, maybe 26th – club event at Huatoki
# Wed 19th June – night rogaine in Pukekura and surrounds. Bring a torch for 90 minutes of running in the dark! We’ll have the AGM first, but that will be over in no time at all. More event details are on Maptalk.

Reminder about helpers at events

The club puts on lots of events and we always need helpers on the day. The committee do a lot of work making sure that events are available for you to come along and enjoy, but we really can’t do it all ourselves. We’d love people to offer to help - in the caravan, handing out maps, setting people off at the start, picking up controls after the event.
Ideally, we need to know in advance. Jay will be putting up a "help needed" roster at events so you can volunteer for future events, or you can make her day by calling now! Ph 751 3589

Notification of AGM Wed 19th June (and night rogaine)

Notification of the AGM on Wed 19th June
In case you are nervous about attending, the office holders for last year are all prepared to stand again this year. Of course we are more than happy to have to vote if there are other offers for the executive!
The current committee is:
President – Mike Fay
Treasurer – Annie Sanderson
Secretary – Len Rodenburg (has offered to be Equipment Officer next year) *
Events – Jay Paterson
Technical – Nick Collins
Web site – Jacqui Sinclair
Equipment Officer – Has been an unfilled role for many years *
Committee – Ted Thomson, Chris Johnson, Pete Wood
And if you are new to the club, becoming a committee member is an easy way to become involved. We can have any number of extra committee members. Think about it and be prepared to nominate yourself at the meeting.
* Len has offered to be the Equipment Officer, and we'd like to take him up that offer, however that means we’ll be needing a new secretary. And we’d like someone to put their hand up now, before the AGM so we can fill the position on the night. The secretary role is not onerous (taking the meeting minutes, dealing to queries coming in to the club email, writing the occasional thankyou letter). Any offers? Contact Len to have a talk about it ph 752 0123

Ratapihipihi Results

Thanks for having a go at some serious navigation in native bush. It was great to see everyone enjoying it.
A couple of groups misread the parallel tracks on the easy course so missed the last control, and a number of people were not aware of the course closure time so stayed out till they had found them all - which made for a very long day for the organiser! In future, please abandon your course at course closure time and return directly to the finish.

April Events

Next event is at Ratapihipihi, access from the end of Cowling Rd. 3 courses (easy and 2 hard) utilising the native bush of the Reserve, some farmland and more native to the south. NOTE: River crossings on the hard courses so be prepared to get wet and have an adventure!! Also note that should it rain (ha ha!!) and the rivers are high we may need to postpone this event.

Following that we are re-running the recent Secondary Schools event held on the Pukekura map - some of our students were away, and none of the adults ran on it. There will be 2 or 3 courses available.
