A stunning drive down through the golf course leads to the bush-clad cascades, the start of our walk. The light rain falling upon arrival cleared for most of the walk, which included the Auckland walk, a short side trip to the falls and a return walk along Upper Kauri Track, past the lookout to the junction of tracks just past the high point of the walk. Morning tea and a photo in the picture frame concluded an enjoyable morning. Click here for more photos of our morning.
Mid Xmas Dinner At Alexandra Park was a fun evening enjoyed by all. The Smorgesbord dinner was a delight to tantalise the tastebuds with a selection of food to satisfy all tastes. We were welcomed with a glass of wine or fruit juice and a betting voucher to start the ball rolling. Some of us had a winning streak but whether you won or lost it was an evening of fun and frevolity. An event done well and one I wouldn't hesitate to enjoy again. Click here for photos of the eveing.
Twenty turned up to our walk covering paths/tracks on both sides of the Opanuku Stream between Border Road an the Corban Estate in Henderson and Cranwell Park on the otherside of Gt. North Rd.

Denise & Lynn's Away Walk & BBQ at Cornwall Park.
What a great morning and a good crowd we had despite the weather. John was a dab hand on our BBQ and kindly stayed back to get things rolling while the rest of us trundled up the hill for our circuit round the volcanic cone and surrounding Park. The keen ones that didn't mind the muddy track took to the top - not naming any names but one of us made hard work of it sliding down a bank changing the club colours to brown, fortunately embarassment was saved from it being caught on camera as it was the photographer. The rest circled the base and all headed back for a hot sausage or two. See Photos
Thirteen Clubbies took part in the Club's Away Weekend down in the Waikato to do the Te Waihou Blue Springs Walk. We had fabulous weather to experience an amazing part of the country. The Te Waihou Springs water is so pristine, it takes 50 to 100 years to filter through underground from the Mamaku Ranges Plateau. The water is bottled and also supplies the nearby town of Putataru with it's water. The walk is an easy undulating 3 hour return. We went on to stay the night at the extremely well run "Out in the Styx Guesthouse", www.styx.co.nz a half hour journey away on the slopes of Maungatautari Mountain. A small group of us did the Night Tour on Santuary Mountain Wildlife Reserve, a must in my book for a chance to take in all it has to offer. See their website for details www.maungatrust.org Some of us stopped off at the Rhubarb Cafe' on our return trip, great food with the Waikato River Cycle Trail right on it's doorstep.

Gillian and Sam's Away Walk at Fairy Falls at the end of March was another great outing enjoyed by the team, seen here at the base of the Falls. A magic spot for a walk in our Waitakere Ranges.
Our Xmas Get-together this year was a picnic held at Cornwallis. A good time was had by all. The weather which was a bit of a mixed bag, didn't dampen the spirits and we had the usual fun with the Secret Santa gifts doing the rounds before ending up in the hands of their final owner. The walk prior to our party took in the Jubilee Walk opened in May 1990 to commenorate the 50th Anniversary of the Park. Gillian once again did us proud with this very innovative cake sporting the new logo. Visit our photo page to see photos of the event.
Great Walk today Girls - Thanks Lynn and Denise for the barbeque, good idea Lynn, a refreshing change to the usual format.

Our walk last Sunday was arranged by Lynn and Denise and took in the redesigned La Rosa Gardens in Green Bay, due to be officially opened this Saturday 16th November at 10:00 am. Thanks girls for a great first walk since joining the Committee. The gardens seen here have been landscaped and planted in native trees, extended trails and new boardwalks have been added and plantings along the banks of the opened up stream. Local school and kinderkarten children and the community have assisted in art work such as this ceramic tiled post that adorn the art-trail. Primary school pupils have constructed two large clay sculptures of a crayfish and a mayfly.
Permaculture artist Guenther Andraschko is seen here putting finishing touches to his long-finned eel sculpture, a threatened endemic New Zealand species living in the stream.
Tongariro Crossing - A great time was had by all twenty of our group that made up the trip. The weather, although quite chilly was fantastic, in between the cloud rolling in along with the odd slight flurry of snow we had a crisp clear view of the amazing scenery and sunshine. Everyone was rugged up well for the conditions and was well pleased they had made the effort, returning back to our warm comfy accommodation at Pipers Ski Lodge to a Barbeque put on by our great hosts Dianne and Bruce. Check out photos of the trip on our photo page. The group of four that did the alternate walk had as much fun managing to fit in not one but two walks - the Waterfall Walk starting behind the Chateau and the Hapuawhenua Viaduct Walk from Ohakune. Please send in your photos so they can be added to the photo gallery. Below : Our Star, Lynn Bainbridge 'On Top of The World'.
