Kayak Gear Stocktake

Each year the club undertakes a stocktake of our gear. It's time for us to spend a few hours on our kayak gear stocktake at the boatshed. If you have paddled a sea or whitewater kayak this year, or even watched a video of someone kayaking, then you are entitled (encouraged!) to assist in this important activity. It's also a great way to get familiar with our range of paddling equipment.

Come and Try: Indoor Climbing

The climbing wall will be open on Saturday morning for all (members & non-members) to have a go at climbing. This will be a good opportunity to check out the ANUMC climbing facilities, socialize with members of the club, and see if climbing is something you enjoy.

You do not need a belay pass or sign up to this trip to attend. All climbing equipment will be provided, just wear comfortable clothes.

- Trip planning, posting the trip, managing signups, pre-trip, running the trip - briefing, monitoring the group, group dynamics and roles, incident management, overall risk management
- Examples/case studies of actual trips and challenges encountered

Rope Skills Practice

Open practice session for rope skills at the old wall. We can go over whatever you want to learn or practice - from tying in to pulley systems and crevasse rescue. I'll set up some ropes and bring along any gear that's required. Sign up and leave a message about what you'd like to cover so I can make sure we have the right gear and enough ropes. If there are no sign ups I probably won't bother setting up ropes.

Note: this isn't explicitly instructional, but I'm happy to share what I know or play the victim.

Rope Practice

Last chance for the canyon leaders course participants to practice before the course. We will meet at the usual spot by the old wall at 630pm.

Weekend Wilderness First aid Training

First aid skills are essential for parties venturing out on trips and as such the club is offering a limited number of subsidised places to attend a two day introductory level wilderness first aid course. Wilderness first aid courses go beyond the skills covered in more traditional first aid courses acknowledging that often first aid incidents that occur during an outdoor activity may need to be immediately dealt with by members of the party, as external help may take considerable time to reach the group.
