GOURMET GROUP

Janet 

This month the group is enjoying 'Mardi Gras’ dinners. So far the biggest problem we all seem to be having is finding a date that the groups of 6 or 8 can all get together. Now in retirement all seem to be very busy.

We are getting ready for our year end cocktail party to be held at the Lash’s on Sunday 27 November from 4pm to 7pm. Be sure you have set aside the date.

SOCIAL CLIMBERS

Wayne

Thursday 24 November, meet at 8am

Social Climbers November Adventure is a walk on the east side of Lake Rotoiti.

We plan to catch the water taxi to Lake Head jetty and walk back to Kerr Bay, a distance of approx. 9kms.

This shorter walk is a lovely way to enjoy the beauty of Lake Rotoiti and is graded “easy” in all the DOC notes. However, because of the distance and the usual beech forest challenges of exposed tree roots and some rocky bits, for our purposes it is set at G2 track. This is a well-worn, standard DOC tramping track so a reasonable level of fitness is required for the 2 - 3 hour walk.

We will meet at the Richmond Aquatic Centre at 8am to car-pool and set off to St Arnaud. Full details will be on the sign-up sheet at our next meeting on 15 November 2022.
