Many Thanks to all our Clubbies and friends who came along and made our Xmas luncheon at McHughs a great success in spite of the weather. It wouldn't have happened without you. The food and service could not be faulted, a great place to celebrate a function right on the beach at Cheltenham. We once again had a great selection of gifts for our Secret Santa. On my part I would like to thank everyone for their appreciation and the Rebels Gift Voucher which I am sure I will put to very good use. John Harris looked very appreciative of his Calendar Girl Gift if the photos are anything to go on. A big thank you goes to Lynn for organising our raffle and congratulations to our Raffle Winners - Janet who took 1st prize of the Gift Basket - not sure whether we should let her play, she has a habit of taking out the 1st prize. Malcolm who took 2nd prize of the Movie Voucher card and a bottle of wine and Lynn who is going home to do some serious housework with her 3rd prize of brushware. A big thank you to all our sponsors for their donations toward the raffle. It's going to be hard to top this venue next year but we will try. Follow link for photos
Our Away Walk for November took in the Auckland Upper Harbour at Te Atatu Peninsula. Although we had a low tide the view was none the less inspiring with a good group turning up for the walk. We started out with the threat of rain but the clouds soon lifted leaving us with brilliant sunshine. Our usual morning tea was a pre Xmas feast with Strawberries and scrumptious baked goodies which were consumed with gusto.
A great time was had by all at our Weekend in Rotorua. Our group of 15 packed our weekend with fun and frivolity not only managing to do the very picturesque Tarawera Falls Walk but also fitting in a charter cruise with Clearwater Cruises www.clearwater.co.nz on their first class water taxi service to the Outlet for the start of our walk and a side trip to Te Wairua Stream for a natural hot water spa on our return trip. Our evening meal at The Landing Cafe' and Bar, (with many thanks to Janet for her organisation) their service and high standard of food could not be faulted. Just to top the weekend off our trip to the Zipline, a most professional company with high standards of safety and content - a must to take in for those wishing to experience the natural outdoors environment. Thanks to Lynn for getting us there. Our stay at Blue Water Top 10 Holiday Park, their staff very helpful and curtious from the very start on booking arrangements with facilities that provided all that was required with clean and comfortable accommodation www.bluelaketop10.co.nz Thanks to Janet and Sandra for their baking skills in providing our Birthday Boys John and Paul with a cake to celebrate the occassion and last but not least a big thank you goes to our drivers who carpooled us there and back safely.

12 brave soul's turned out for John & Rose's away walk for August and enjoyed the wild & woolly sundays weather - we were lucky to have a break in the weather with just the odd droplet of rain here and there! We even got to see some kick boxers practicing in the park.
What a beautiful park to have in the inner city, fabulous walk 5.5km loop track well worth the effort coming out on such a shitty day!!
Then we all went back to Rose's house for a BBQ Cafe Styled Breakkie - Ciabatta with avocado, tomato, free range eggs, bacon or salmon what ever combo you choose to have was absolutely yumbo!! all in all a great away walk big thank you to all who came, cheers Rose & John.
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. Click here for photos of our Weekend.
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.
