Social Night Closer to Town

Traditionally, MCK members gathered every Tuesday night (at Langata) for drinks and  talk of mountains and  the great outdoors. It was a great opportunity to get out of the house and talk about the past adventures and plan future escapades. But in those days, it was a 20 minute drive to the club without frustration.

We propose to resume informal Tuesday nights in Westlands at a location convenient to more members. The third gathering will be at The Treehouse, Westlands Road on Tuesday, February 11 from 8:00 PM. So come down, spend time with other outdoor folks and the weekend won't seem so far away.

Invite your non member friends too. The more the merrier.

Cash bar.
