Tramping Club

Tramping Club

1937 with its tramping days and memories has come and gone.

During the past year the activities of the Tramping Club have been maintained to a high degree: successful fixtures have been held to all regions of the Tararuas and Orongorongas. Mere distant localities such as Tongariro National Park and the Arthur's Pass region have been visited by large and enthusiastic parties of supporters.

Trips Accomplished.

The Tararuas themselves have been a scene of noteworthy activity. Under perfect conditions the Club made its seventh consecutive winter crossing of the Southern Tararuas; a record which no other Wellington club has approached. Previous to Christmas a party of V.U.C.T.C. and T.T.C. trampers made the crrossing from Kaitoke to Walkanae, this being the first occasion on which a club party has crossed by this route. Since Christ mas the Club ushered in its New Year activities with a traverse of the Northern Tararuas from [unclear: Leving] to Masterton under good condition.

New Members.

Each year the ranks of the Club are seriously depleted by the transfer and graduation of older members.

This year it is the purpose of the Club Executive to enrol a strength of new members and freshers greater than ever in the past. It is the desire to encourage all those who are interested in tramping, mountaineering, and skiing, to take an active interest in this sport—this, interest can best he fulfilled by joining the V.U.C. Tramping Club without delay. Look for the Tramping Club column in every issue of "Salient." Don't forget—you are welcome on all trips—so make your weekend motto: "See you on the hills."
