Getting to know TTC

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 getting to know TTC, the easiest way is to join us on one of our trips. As you'll see from the Fixture Card there are several trips to choose from every week. Contact the leader to get more details and let them know you are interested in joining the club.

You can also meet us on a Tuesday club night which starts with social time over tea/coffee and biscuits and an opportunity to hire gear, followed by an interesting talk. There are always people present who can answer your questions and put you in touch with organisers of upcoming trips. For any membership or general enquiries please contact Jane‑Pyar Mautner -> mailto:ttc [period] membership [snail] ttc [period] org [period] nz?Subject=Query from TTC website on 027 689 8845.

Each year we hold a new members' evening with presentations about club activities and sign-up for the club's popular bushcraft course. At our Winter Activities night you can find out about and sign up for the club's winter instruction courses.

Never tramped before?

We run a number of day walks and trips, for which you need little in the way of special gear, although strong walking shoes, warm, windproof, and waterproof layers, and a day pack are recommended.

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; but some you'll need to buy or borrow. A detailed gear list can be found in our trip information.

If you've never done any tramping before, then we recommend you attend our bushcraft Instruction course. This course 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.
