Parawai Tramping Club

Corona virus and Club activity

Parawai Tramping Club is now able to run trips that follow the Level 2 rules around records, keeping away from others and having some personal space. In addition, camping and use of huts is OK. Huts ought to be kept half empty and we will need to avoid mixing with other parties. Any overnight trip could involve camping to ensure we do not end up closely mixing with others. We are working on updates for the trip schedule as ideas develop and as the corona virus rules/processes evolve.
