Hamilton Cruise 2016

Post by nand » Sat Jan 02, 2016 6:15 pm

We are planning to have a cruise in Hamilton this year. The cruise will be on the 7th of Feb which is the Waitangi weekend.
On the 6th (Saturday) we can have dinner and 7th (Sunday) will be the cruise.
The cruise will be around Hamilton. Will find a good route for the cruise and will update the forum as it comes near.

Let me know who all are attending to make this event happen.
Saturday dinner will depend on the number of people attending.
