He is also involved in other committees of the PCV and sits on the Board of St Andrews Christian College. Brian loves being married to Anne, has two adult sons, one dog and one cat.

2014 Leaders Winter Tramp

The winter leaders tramp is now an annual classic.

In the past we have had a quiet weekend jaunt up the Routeburn valley to the Routeburn Falls Hut for the night. We may explore other options this year if people are keen.

All leaders and volunteer staff are welcome to attend this tramp. Anyone really keen for some weekend of fellowship with some ‘neat people’ are also welcome to attend this tramp.

 

It is a winter tramp so expect the following from the weekend:

– easy going track

– minus 0 degrees temperatures and maybe snow

– warm fellowship and good food

Those interested will need to contact Tim at the CYC office to talk about the tramp.

Some limited transport may be available from Waihola to the tramp and home again.

 

Your gear will need to include:

– Good boots with ankle support

– Very warm clothing (including two sets of thermals)(last time we did this tramp there was a -5 degree night in the hut)

– Very warm sleeping bag (again it is very cold)

– Wet weather gear (last time it snowed)

– Your own food (although dehydrated food is available for purchase from CYC at our cost price)

 

More details will be published to those that have signed up to go.
