This year's South Island gathering will be hosted by the North Canterbury Branch over the weekend of 2-3 November. The venue will be the Christchurch Bridge Club on Barbadoes St, Christchurch. There will be an informal get-together on the evening of Friday 1 November for those who arrive that day. The programme will be available closer to the time. These Island Gatherings provide a great opportunity to share information and hear about cutting edge conservation. Please save the date!
