Fri 31st May – Mon 3rd June 2019
THE GATHERING – Rotorua
Take advantage of the long 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.

Fri 15 – Sun 17th November 2019
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 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.

ESCAPE FOR A WEEK
Starting in the North Island and traversing both coasts of the North and South Island, we’ll finish somewhere in the South Island – who knows perhaps it’ll be 3rd time lucky and we 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.
