Event Description

Our first big meet, the first of many that is!

This get together will be great for any experience level, so people new to bushcraft are definitely welcome. We will have more details shortly, but for now make sure to keep this weekend free as we would love to see you there. For more details and to ask questions please head to the discussion that has been set up for this Meet.

The plan so far:

9.30 Meet at Kaniwhaniwha reserve carpark so that we can walk into the camp area as a group.

We can then set up camp for the weekend and get a brew on. We will have some activity/tuition sessions running in the late morning and afternoon, when they are finalised we will let you know.

Saturday evening will be leisure time for us all to relax and get to know each other round the campfire.

On Sunday morning after a hearty breakfast we will run another session and maybe for those that wanted to (and subject to access being possible) we could have a short walk to Kaniwhaniwha Cave.

After Lunch on Sunday we can walk out together and say farewell from the carpark.

More details on what kit you will need coming soon, but at very least it needs to be sufficient for you to stay warm and dry overnight and during the two days, even if the weather turns foul. You will also need to bring your own food. Beginners should not feel that they need to go out and spend a whole lot of money right away, we can possibly share some kit around if need be.

We can also organise carpooling as well, no need for each of us to take a car.

This means that we know numbers attending, contact details and experience levels and makes for a fun time for everyone!
