80th Anniversary Muac

The Massey University Alpine Club celebrated its 80th anniversary last Saturday. The club organised an evening of dinner and entertainment with special guest speakers and former club's members.

The Club started running in June 1929, and it only stopped organising activities during World War II. It isthe second oldest club at Massey University (for only half an hour, behind the rugby guys) and still the most popular.
Although it's named "alpine club", nowadays it focuses on many more activities such as kayaking, rock climbing, caving or slacklining. It's a great place for first years and international students to meet people and get into the outdoors of this amazing country.
