Club Night

Alpine Sports Club Inc. meets on the first Tuesday of each month (except January) at 7:30pm at St Marks Anglican Church, 95 Remuera Rd, Remuera, Auckland 

November Club Night

7:30pm Tuesday 5th November 2019 

In 1991 Linda Danen applied for the position of meteorology technician on Campbell Island, New Zealand’s only permanently inhabited sub-antarctic island. Living in the company of just four others in hostel type accommodation, on a cold windswept island for twelve months, with no other company or visitors to talk to, might seem daunting to many. Come along and hear Linda’s story and view her pictures of what life is like on this southern outpost. 

Linda is currently President of the Ruapehu Mountain Clubs Assn and following her address she has indicated that she would be willing to answer any questions from club members on “What’s happening at Whakapapa for the clubs”. 

Be sure not to miss what should be a most interesting evening!

Indoor rock Climbing at the Mount Wellington Extreme Edge. 

Indoor climbing continues on Monday and Wednesday evenings at Extreme Edge Mt Wellington. Starting from 6pm.

In good weather the Wednesday session is sometimes split between the indoor wall and the quarry at Auckland Grammar School. Contact Jackie for confirmation.

The ‘short notice’ climbing trips organised by the Climbing Group have come to an end for the season (2017). However, autumn and winter are great times to brush up on our skills indoors so we are ready for next season (or any good breaks in the weather)!  

Short notice trips are notified to members within the existing climbing group (for safety reasons) To be invited on one of these trips, please go along to a session of Climbing at Extreme Edge from 6 pm on a Monday or Wednesday evening.
