Trampers dropping into Siberia Valley

Thursday Night Meetings

The OTMC hold an evening meeting most Thursdays (see below for upcoming programme). Anyone with an interest in tramping or the outdoors are more than welcome to come along and find out what the club can offer. The door is open at 7.30pm and the meeting proper starts at 8pm. A structured programme normally follows some short club announcements. The programme often features a guest speaker talking about a tramping or outdoor related topic. Occasionally we hold training nights on various tramping subject. Members and other are able to bring along photos etc. or recent trips to our regular BYO (photos) nights,

If you are interested in finding out more about the tramping club and tramping in our area then the club nights are often the best way to do so. You can sign up for weekend trips, or talk to leaders for the upcoming day trips.

We are fortunate to own our own clubrooms which allows us to display a comprehensive map and photo collection on our walls.

Our clubrooms are located at 3 Young Street, St Kilda. Young Street runs off Prince Albert Road, the main road through South Dunedin leading to the beach. Our clubrooms is identified by a large sign and are just behind the corner diary.
