Tararua Tramping Club
Becoming a TTC member
TTC welcomes new people in all its activities. We have over 600 members with broad ranges of age, ability and experience.
If you're interested in joining TTC the easiest way is to meet us on a tuesday club night. There are always people present who can answer your questions and put you in touch with organisers of upcoming trips.
As you'll see from the fixture card, there are several trips to choose from every week.
Around February each year we hold a new members' evening with presentations about club activities and sign-up for the club's popular bushcraft course.
What you'll need
To start tramping you'll need certain basic gear, such as tramping boots, warm clothes, a waterproof layer and a pack. If you're going away for the weekend you'll also need a sleeping bag. Some of this gear can be hired at the club's gear room, however some you'll need to buy or borrow from a friend. A more detailed gear list can be found in the fixture card. See also our trip information.
Never tramped before?
If you've never done any tramping before then we recommend you attend our bushcraft Instruction course. This will give you most of the skills you need to go tramping - you'll meet some interesting people too! Have a look at the activities page for more information about instruction courses.
All you need to do is to get your form signed by two existing club members of a year or more.
