Summer Work Parties

Summer Work Parties

Over summer of 2016, our major project is staining the cedar cladding of both Lodges. 

Come and have some fun, get the work done and receive two free nights accommodation this season. The first work party at Iwikau is nearly upon us, being held 28/29 February and a second one on 12/13 March. We have 90 litres of Ebony stain and we need as many willing hands as we can get to put this on the building. If you haven’t attended a work party for a few years we need your help. Please make the effort to attend as after all we are a club and operate on a volunteer basis. You don’t need to be an expert as staining, this is perfect for novice painters! Your teenagers are most welcome!

All meals are provided and every attendee will have their club account credited with two nights accommodation. Car pooling will also be arranged.
Please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to volunteer.

•      Iwikau –  27-28 Feb, 12-13 March,
•      Turoa - 2-3 April, 16-17 April
