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.

May 2: David Barnes - 17 years of Tararua Trips - Lower Hutt based OTMC member David Barnes does most of his tramping these days in the Tararua Range, where club tramping began. He describes the range as the North Island's (slightly larger) answer to the Silver Peaks. Five of his trips there were before he left Otago, which he claims is a record, and there have been many more since, when his knees have permitted.

Come along to hear about a selection of them.
