Newsletter folding, and a general catch-up with refreshments as per usual. Lightning talk tonight: Lorraine is talking about the CTC trip she led to Nelson Lakes before Christmas. Lorraine, Barry, Zack, Rose and Kate completed the Travers/Sabine/Mt Angelus loop, with a "rest" day to Blue Lake. Great scenery and fantastic weather. Also some impressive earthquake damage from flying boulders in the Blue Lake region.
