• For other trips, the leader will advise the meeting place, but it is often from Paru Paru Road, Nelson (the carpark on the left, in front of the Nelson Squash Club).

• The leader will arrange transport from and back to these pick up points, but you must arrange your own transport to and from there.

• The leader will decide if the trip has to be cancelled because of weather or other circumstances, and will inform everyone accordingly.

• If you book in but then are unable to join the trip, please advise the leader as soon as possible, so they can update the Trip List and rearrange car-pooling.
