NOVEMBER QUICKIE
You need to be on the mailing list to find out about this one. We head out on a Friday for an overnight stay somewhere in the Central / Upper North Island, then on Saturday host a Big Bonfire and BBQ! A giant pancake breakfast is laid on before heading home on Sunday. Dates and details via the newsletter only. 

22 – 26th March 2020
NO ONE HOME TOUR
Starting in Northland on Sunday morning, we’ll end up in Southland on Thursday night without using SH1 – we’re hoping to make it 3rd time lucky and we’re going to make it to Takaka this time. Come along for a day, the whole week, or just for dinner – get on the mailing list for updates as the planning comes together.

THE GATHERING
Take advantage of the long Queen’s Birthday weekend to go exploring the central North Island. Short days of about 300kms mean we avoid the frost at either end of the day – so expect relaxed breakfasts and casual evenings. We’ll confirm the location nearer the time.
