| Rangiora Tramping Club

Rangiora Tramping Club is based in North Canterbury New Zealand and aims to promote tramping and related activities. It organises tramps most weekends for one day or multi day.

Club Trips

Travel costs: Indicative costs only are given. Weekend or longer tramps are 9½

cents per km. For day trips the charge is 7c per km. Every person (adult or child) occupying

a seat pays the travel fee. The leader might modify the distribution or

amount on trip day according to changing circumstances.

The editor is going to publish the estimated mileage (kilometrage ?) for trips if he is

given the information. Please note the highlighted sentence above.

Booking for trips: Ring the trip leader/organiser and indicate your interest in joining

a trip. For weekend and extended trips, the closing date is the Wednesday prior

to the trip. Trips depart from the (Pink) Elephant Park, corner of Blackett And White St Rangiora unless the leader nominates

a different departure place. The time indicated is the departure time. Arrive

beforehand so checks and final arrangements can be made.
