NOTE: Club members are encouraged to participate in contributing trip/tramp ideas, and we are always looking for new territory. If you can’t attend the planning meetings, at least tell Laraine or Maddy if you know of an interesting walk. If you are prepared to lead a walk, even better – our more experienced members would be delighted to help you. Remember, no trip ideas, no leaders - no tramps!
