About 35-40 people and cars met at the Botanical Gardens for an early coffee and instructions for the day. The day was a little overcast and a bit chilly but the wonderful green countryside that we travelled through made up for this. We meandered through the Hunua's and the back of Miranda (no time for a dip in the hot pools), and finally reached our destination "The Corner Stone Cafe". Tables had been reserved for us and our meals were served promptly. David Porter thanked David Lane for organising the run and presented Aaron Mawkes with the Winter Wander Trophy. David Lane presented Roy Sharman with the Peoples Choice Trophy. Everyone mingled and then we all departed for home. It was a great run and great to catch up with friends again.
