Welcome to the CTC!
If you are interested in joining the CTC you might want to start by reading more about the CTC. Then you should sign up as a prospective member. To do this:
- Fill in the on-line prospective member form and/or
- Come along to club night and talk to our membership officer and/or
- Just phone or email him via the contacts page.
The membership officer is John Kerkhofs. He prefers to be contacted via the prospective members form, if possible. It costs nothing to be a prospective member, and in return you get some club information, and up to two monthly issues of The Christchurch Tramper, the club newsletter.
Before applying to become a club member you need to tramp with us for three or more days, on at least two different club trips. You could do three day trips, a day trip and a weekend trip, or two weekend trips. This gives you the opportunity to decide whether or not you enjoy our tramping style. Upcoming trips are listed online and in the newsletter. To sign up for a trip you'll need to contact the trip leader - the membership officer can put you in touch.
If you do want to join the club, download the application form or get one from a weekly social meeting. Make sure that you have filled in your qualifying tramps, the dates you did them and leader names. Then send the form with your subscription fee to the club OR give it to the new members rep OR any committee member. Your membership will be considered at the committee meeting after receipt of the application. If you wish to pay by internet banking, put a note on the application form and pay when your application is approved. The club's account number is 38-9017-0279838-00 (KiwiBank/Christchurch Tramping Club). Include your name and the word "subs" in the particulars/code/reference fields
