Don Yallop Auckland Memorial

Don Yallop Auckland Memorial

I wish to thank the Committee and members of the Rangatira Ski Club, for the beautiful bouquet they sent following Don’s passing.

Rangatira Ski Club is Don’s legacy and his name will live on for as long as the Club stands and that will be forever,  with yet another generation of members enjoying the facilities of two lodges and a great reputation as a family club, built up over the many years since a group of young Aucklanders, joined Don and Bruce and actually built the Iwikau Lodge.

There will be a gathering of Auckland family and friends, who wish to remember Don and say their farewells, from 1.30/2pm pm till 3.30, on Sunday, 1st May at the Kings College STAFF dining/ lounge room - Kings College, Otahuhu.

Rangatira members are welcome to join, please let me know who might attend, as I need to give the caterers of the afternoon tea, an estimate of numbers.

Thank you again for the flowers and kind thoughts

Dairne Yallop.
