New Members Evening this Thursday - all welcome!!

Invitation to Mountain Backpackers Club new members evening, Thursday 22 February 2018, 7:00PM

On Thursday, the 22nd of February, the Club is organising a special social evening dedicated to all new and potential new members. There will be several short presentations on the club history, an introduction of the organising committee and group leaders, hikes and trails, hiking equipment and social media. By organizing this event we try to introduce the new members to the facilities and hiking opportunities offered by the club. For the less experienced hikers we will provide guide lines that will help them getting geared quickly and joining the hikes soon. This is a night of fellowship where the new and old club members get together to share their common interest and experiences. Snacks are provided and a cash bar is available.

Please email  Sorin Dimitriu  to confirm your participation.

Venue: Sherwood Bowling Club - 860 Jan Smuts Highway
