It is with sadness that we report the death of Chas Tanner, after a long illness.

Chas served as President of NZAC 2001–2003, and was involved with Club huts for over 40 years. This included a long stint on the Accommodation Committee, significant involvement with many hut builds and refurbishments, as well as time as the live-in manager of Unwin Lodge after its upgrade.

Our thoughts are with Chas' family and close friends at this time.
