Kromriver Hut, Hike and Auction | Kromrivierhut, Stap and Veiling

6 March @ 10:00 am 8 March @ 7:00 pm UTC+0

Join us for a Paarl/Wellington hut weekend.  On Saturday we will do a variation on the Kromrivier Dome circular walk which will include one of the cascades pools.  In the late afternoon we will have our first ever “Kromhut Auction”.
Those who want to sleep over the Friday or Saturday night contact Loni  Eager at eagerloni@yahoo.com or 084 517 6959.
You may come for the Saturday only if you’d like; contact Elsie via email at elsieoettle@gmail.com  or via message/WhatsApp at 082 737 9990 for the Saturday arrangements.

We will have an auction at 17:00 on Saturday 7 March. The goal of the Auction is to have a little fun, and at the same time generate some extra funds for fixing the veranda and steps around the hut.  We will be auctioning off hiking and mountaineering equipment. We already have a range of hiking and mountaineering items on the table (see the l below), but more donations are welcome. We are fortunate that Hilary Hut himself will be there to conduct the auction, which promises to be short and sweet. Items up for grabs include: 

  • Hiking/camping cooking pots,
  • Cutlery,
  • Swiss army knives,
  • Water bottles,
  • Hiking sticks,
  • Hiking clothing,
  • Day bags,
  • Buff scarves,
  • Hiking food, and
  • Mountaineering medicinal item.

Please contact Elsie if you have anything to donate, even if you can’t make it to the Auction yourself.

For auction arrangements contact Elsie via email at elsieoettle@gmail.com  or via message/WhatsApp at 082 737 9990.

The club uses a grading system (given in brackets after the hike name) to make it easier for club members to communicate the difficultly of an outing. You can check out our Meets Grading page for details on how to use the grading system, or alternatively you can contact the meet leader directly if you are unsure of the difficulty of a meet.
