Shade awnings

First order of business for our new President after organising the after AGM BBQ was to arrange putting the shade awnings back up.

These provide a welcome respite from the sun while cooling off with a beverage in the large patio area. Additionally this year we have the awning above the BBQ stations which will no doubt please those performing cooking duties.

2023 AGM Results

It was wonderful to see so many present to help ensure the continuation of the club and hear what we’ve got coming up in the way of challenges and ideas.

We have new executive leadership in Peter Clough & Arn Carr. If you don’t already know them, come on down on a Friday and get introduced. The rest of the executive and committee remain unchanged as each was prepared to stand again. See the contacts page for a full list of the executive and committee.

A huge Thank You to Peter Schare and Grant Northcott for their tenures as President and Vice-President respectively. Peter had some very kind words to say in his report as the out-going club president; including acknowledgements to all those staff and volunteers that have worked so hard over the last 12 months (often behind the scenes) to ensure the club keeps going and meets all it’s requirements.

After 12 years without an increase in the membership fee it was decided our 2023/2024 membership fees will be as follows.

1 year3 year5 year
Concession (Student/Gold Card)$40.00

Updated membership forms will be available ASAP, and a reminder that in order to be a member of an associated club (e.g. Squash, Walkers & Runners) you must have a valid Ruakura Campus Club membership.

Bar tap changes

To help ensure we get a more varied option in kegs we’re reducing our number of available taps to eight.

One of these will always be a low alcohol beer (Brewaucracy Tax Evasion is our current favourite) and the others will be kegs from around the region and country.

If there is a brew you’d love to see on tap let one of the committee, or the bar staff know and we’ll see what we can do.
