in

On Sunday 10 March we are very fortunate to have two top X-Alps athletes, Tom de Dorlodot and Ferdinand Van Schelven, give us a presentation on their recent 800km traverse of the Southern Alps from Te Anau to Nelson, which they undertook as part of their training for X-Alps 2013.

Tom will also be showing a documentary on his 2012 expedition to the Karakoram mountains in Pakistan, where he pioneered a 300km route through some of the most challenging alpine terrain on the planet.

Entry is free and friends are more than welcome to attend. RSVPs to grahamsurrey@gmail.com by Friday 8 March would be appreciated.

When: 8.00pm, Sunday 10 March
Where: The CT Club, 27-33 Ohinerau St, Remuera.

I hope to see you all there!

Cheers,
Graham Surrey
AHGPC President.

I was at Tom and Ferdy's

I was at Tom and Ferdy's presentation in Nelson last night. As well as the Southern Alps adventure and the Karakorum mentioned above Tom also showed us a movie of his paragliding ang paramotoring expedition through the length of Africa from north to south. It's not just about flying. The travel, people, food and adventures of the gun toting officialdom they encounter are all there. Its a great evening,bring the family.
