Happy new year! Hope you've all had a wonderful summer season. We're now excited to be starting to get ready for winter! This year we will be having early work parties for Iwikau so watch out for these dates. There will be some updates to the booking procedures for peak season weekends. Read more below.

Don't forget to come along to the upcoming AGM on Sunday 22 March.



7 & 8 March, 2020

We need as many willing hands as we can get. The weekends are a lot of fun and a good chance to meet fellow members and families.

All meals are provided and existing adult members will have their club account credited with two nights accommodation.

Come along to Rangatira's Annual General Meeting and catch up with friends and the latest club news. 


Given the huge demand on the booking system during the 2019 season, particularly for the Iwikau lodge, the committee has been reviewing ways to improve the process for the 2020 season to smooth out demand and ensure everyone is well informed. Following are details for how 2020 bookings will operate:

  • - Subscriptions invoices will be sent out to all members on 1st May, 2020 (exact time of day to be confirmed in March).
  • - Members will be able to login and make bookings as soon as their subs have been paid.
  • - For peak season weekend bookings new cancellation fees will apply - 
    • - If cancelling more than 7 days from the start of the booking there is a 20% cancellation fee
    • - If cancelling between 3-7 days before start of booking there is a 50% cancellation fee.
    • - If cancelling within 3 days from the start of the booking there will be no refund.
  • - Peak season is 31st July 2020 to 19th September, 2020
  • - The above rules apply to Iwikau weekend bookings only during the peak season period, all other booking rules/cancellation fees remain as previous - detailed here

This will be tested throughout the 2020 season and reviewed at the end of the year.
