Central North Island: 2015 Annual General Meeting
The 2015 AGM took place on November 11. We got together and did some deep thoughts. Pizza, beer, wine, chips and good conversations. A sweet way to spend the evening. Participants included Michael Greer, Lars Brabyn, Marcus Bai, Marcus Daws, and Mark Smith. The venue was at the Ruakura Research Centre building at Tetrapak.
The conversation included more emphasis on Rock Climbing. A motion was made to make the monthly trips into NZAC trips. We also decided upon setting up some rock climbing instructional courses. You can look forward to some of these coming up this year and the following year.
As a result of the AGM, weekly rock climbing meets will begin again for the summer. The normal email address will be utilized: firstname.lastname@example.org. NZAC membership is not required. Just send an email and go. Pretty straight forward.
In addition, monthly climbing meets will be instituted. NZAC membership is required for these (http://tinyurl.com/NZAC-JOIN).
Following the meeting, we instituted a survey in which choices were given for the location of our first monthly trip. It was decided by the group to go Mount Maunganui. The trip date is Sunday December 6. We have three loads of climbers going and the weather is looking good. Keep an eye out for these on Facebook (facebook.com/alpinecentral/), the communication email (email@example.com), the calendar (http://goo.gl/UEJxS0), or our newsletters.
