Trampers dropping into Siberia Valley

Thursday Night Meetings

OTMC Thursday Night Meetings

The OTMC hold an evening meeting most Thursday evenings (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 from 7.00pm and the meeting proper starts at 7.30pm. 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 subjects.

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 and weekend  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 clubroom is identified by a large sign and is just behind the corner dairy.

Upcoming Social Programme

Note new start time for our weekly meetings from November 2 - door open at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm meeting start.

November 9: Steffan Rolfe - Forays Into Aoraki Mt Cook. In Summer 2015 to Winter 2017 Steffan lived and worked in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. His first job there was driving a boat on the Tasman Glacier Lake, and then he spent some time managing a department at the Hotel mixed in with a bit of guiding. He was lucky enough to experience some cool adventures while there - come along and have a look at a few photos.

November 16: Green Hut Track Group - The Green Hut Track Group are a group of volunteers who maintain over 60 local tramping tracks - this evening is an oppurtunity to discuss with the OTMC the oppurtunities and challanges that exist, and how both groups can collaborate together.

November 23: The Geology of Moray Place - If you think that Geology isn't your thing - this may change your mind! You certainly won't be bored! Nick Mortimer, from GNS, will lead a 60 - 90 minute walk around the Moray Place circuit. Weather - unlikely to be cancelled, so if it looks like rain then bring your oilskins! Time: Meet at the gates of First Church at 7.25pm, for a 7.30pm start. Finish 9pm at the very latest. Maybe a coffee afterwards if we can find anywhere open!

November 30: Tracy & Richard Pettinger - Derbyshire, England, daytrips in the footsteps of trespassers.
