You are invited to join us for section night Tuesday March 23rd 6 -7pm at the Southern Cross 39 Abel Smith St Te Aro.

The section nights are an opportunity to meet other members, share, plan alpine adventures and be inspired by others.

This month Bob will take us on a journey into "The Early History of South Westland Mountaineering" 

Robert James "Bob" McKerrow , a native of New Zealand, is a humanitarian, mountaineer, polar traveller, writer and poet. He currently works as Country Coordinator for the Swiss Red Cross in the Philippines working on the Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) operation. When the Indian Ocean tsunami struck on 26 December 2004, McKerrow worked in India, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Indonesia, coordinating Red Cross programmes for people affected by the tsunami for an eight-year period.

He was Editor of the New Zealand Adventure Magazine in 1989 and 1990, and continues to write and contribute photographs to various magazines, websites, and blogs. He has published a number of his poems in the New Zealand Alpine Journal and North & South Magazine, and wrote a biography of mountaineer Ebenezer Teichelmann.

Bob is a great story teller, we look forward to seeing you there.
