Mt Fell Hut Fit 

Bob Janssen Email: rrcjanssen@outlook.co.nz

Phone: 548 8257

This will be a small working party for the assembly and installation of a wood shed. Bob has made a kitset for the shed which has been choppered up there. It will be walk in/walk out from Timms Creek track-head, E. Bank, Wairau. Could extend to 2 nights depending on how the work goes and the weather. This will the finale for all NTC's work on this hut. A hugely successful ORC-funded project but the money is all gone for more choppering (but road costs to/from E bank of Wairau will be covered).

Rainbow Snow Skills Easy  $NR

Debbie Hogan Email: debbiehogan011@gmail.com

Phone: 553 0427

Sunday

We will proceed to Rainbow Skifield and will give training on some basics of handling an iceaxe and wearing crampons. Also moving confidently and safely on snow; ascending and descending steeper slopes and self arrest. If the team proves keen and competent then an ascent of nearby Peanter Peak can be attempted. In any case a good day out and training for future snow trips. Snow gear can be borrowed from the club on a first come first served basis.
