Meetings


Club Meetings

The club meets at 7:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month (except January) at the Fish & Game Council Rooms, 66 Champion Rd, Richmond.
The general public are warmly invited to the meetings and we only ask for a gold coin donation to help cover expenses. We start with a short talk about the club's tramping trips from the last month and a few words about the next month's tramps planned.
Then we generally feature a guest speaker/slide show, followed by tea and biscuits and a chat.
From time to time social events are arranged by the committee.

Living in an 11m house bus
