Newsletter and ride posters published (and how to get them in your Inbox)

Those of you who have joined the newsletter subscription list should find Newsletter 164 and the ride posters for Waitohu (9 March) and Bright's Farm (16 March) in your inboxes. If not, check your spam folder.

Those of you who prefer to find our information updates on our website, check the News page and the Calendar, where you will find links to the same PDF files.

If you're not on the newsletter subscription list and would like to be, the process to join is simple but you need to do it. Here's how:

Send a blank email to
You will get back a request to confirm your subscription (if you don't, check your spam folder)
Reply to this confirmation request - that will confirm your subscription. That's it - you're in.
Look for future emails with the tag "[watrc-news]" in the subject - that's us.

The Google service we use for the mailing list allows anyone to join but requires a "double opt in" procedure to ensure your email address was provided by you - that's why you have to do this - we can't do it for you.
If you get stuck, check our detailed instructions.

Still working on the photos from Pikarere.

Manakau Photos uploading

Photos should complete  upload over the next few hours. The set is linked from the photos page now and I should have the finishing touches done in the morning if all goes well.

Manakau results have also been published.

Hope to see you all at Pikarere on Sunday.

Photos from Turakina uploading

Upload is in progress now and should complete this evening if all goes well. A recent broadband upgrade means each image is now only taking about 10 seconds to upload - smokin' !!

The link to the set is on the photos page and I hope to set up the cover image and tags for the slide show later tonight.

The forecast for Sunday is looking good so we'll hope to see you on the trail at Manakau
