3130 Matariki Weekend

3130 Matariki Weekend

Long Weekend 28th - 30th June 2024

The Club is organising another Matariki Weekend at the Club Lodge at Ruapehu. The weekend program is:

Friday 28th June – Travel to the Lodge in the morning. Walk up to the Lodge and settle in. After some lunch some walk options will be offered.

Saturday 29th June – A selection of walks of various fitness levels will be on offer. After pre-dinner nibbles, we will have a special Matariki dinner for the group. We are working on inviting someone to come along and talk about Matariki after dinner (may be on Friday night).

Sunday 30th June – To be decided. We could clean-up  and leave mid-morning and do a short walk or two on our way home.


PLEASE NOTE that we have only been allocated 16 bunks at this stage. 
Please, when you register for this weekend, please indicate whether you require a single bunk or a double bunk. This will help with the planning. If more than 16 people register, we will keep a Waiting List in case we are given more bunks or people pull out.


As mentioned above, we will have a special dinner for Saturday night for the group. Jacqui has kindly offered to organise the special dinner. I am sure she would like a few helpers (mention in your registration whether you are able to help).

All other meals -Breakfasts, Lunches, Friday night dinner, and drinks, each person needs to provide.  Also, if each person can bring some pre-dinner nibbles to share, would be great.  Tea/Coffee/etc, milk and sugar will be provided. Each person to bring their own preferred alcohol / juice.


Various walks between easy and fit will be offered during the weekend. Details of walks are yet to be sorted out with more details provided closer to the weekend. Obviously the weather will decide what we do.

More details on the weekend will be sent out closer to the weekend including recommended clothing / equipment to bring and, costs.

If anyone has suggestions on walks etc we can consider, please feel free to contact me.
