SLOPES and the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be holding the annual “Back to Perisher Weekend” over the 2015 Easter period which this year also coincides with the NSW school holidays.
“Back to Perisher Weekend” is an initiative to increase patronage in the Kosciuszko National Park in the autumn. All Club members and their friends are encouraged to attend. This will be the 7th year of BtoP and numbers have increased each year.
More information is in the attached files… events for the Back to Perisher weekend, and more general NPWS autumn events.
Update: more info re the Fire Station Open Day…
We appreciate your help in spreading the word about the Open Day. We plan on being open from 11am. There will be some showbags for the kids, a chance to tour our 4WD and oversnow fire engines, photos on a snowmobile or a 6 wheel bike. The kids always manage to find the siren button. They can even have a turn on a real fire hose under supervision with one of our fire fighters.
There will be lots of information on fire safety in the home and lodge. If any of your members would like to discuss any fire safety concerns with us on the day, please encourage them to do so.
Also, starting at 5pm, we will be holding at the Fire Station a BBQ and presenting awards from the morning Fun Run (Walk).
After several false starts, Canberra Alpine Club now has a new website. Using WordPress, it should be much easier to update than the old site, which should allow us to keep it up to date with Club-related news and information. There are a few members-only pages but most information is available for both members and non-members to browse.
Have a look around, and send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAC was established in 1934, and provides accommodation and cameraderie for members interested in snowsports and the alpine region. Members ski (alpine and nordic), snowboard, bushwalk, and get involved in plenty of other activities, from the Olympic level down to new starters, and those who prefer to stick to the social side.
Whether you are a member or an interested visitor, please browse the site to find out more about our Club.
