Ski Club has Ambitious Plans for the Season

Ski Club has Ambitious Plans for the Season

Presenting his report at the Annual General Meeting of the Ski Club, Mr. Tony Hassed, The Treasurer, outlined the Club's plans for the season. Two or three seasons ago, the Club was in dire financial straits, and due to a concerted effort by the members all outstanding debts had been paid. However, this year the club was faced with the prospect of having to raise £75 by July and to this end a dance will be held on Friday, April 13.

A social levy was to be made on the members of the club together with a working party levy of five shillings, this latter to be paid in to the joint hut account, and used for the expenses incurred in sending parties to the hut to do construction jobs, etc.

Other changes outlined included an increase in the hut fees from 5/ per night to 7/6 per night and an increase in the truck fare to £2/10/-. The cost of a weekend skiing is thus about £5/10/-, inclusive of hire of equipment at 2/6 per unit.

The hut was also to be extended, he said, and this was going to require much money and labour. Auckland University had already started on the internal modifications and the Victoria club was hoping to start work on their portion of the work during the Easter break.

Other speakers during the evening including Mr Landreth, the Physical Education Officer, who outlined his course for instruction in dry skiing.

The evening concluded with slides films, and supper.
