Events

Social events have varied from major celebrations of club milestones like the 25th and 30th anniversaries, to dinner gatherings at restaurants, bush dances and theatre nights.

Monthly Meetings

The monthly general meetings attract around 100 members and guests, and usually feature a guest speaker. Trip Leaders are asked to describe forthcoming trips, and after a refreshment break we have verbal reports on past trips.
