Last weeks Speaker
Kaitlin Zonnefeld spoke about her involvement with the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards held at Lakeland Park in Queenstown. An Opoho girl she completed a nursing degree at Otago Polytechnic and now is a Nurse at Hospice. She was encouraged by CEO Ginny Green to apply.  Kaitlin found the whole experience great with the various team building activities, projects and lectures by many speakers. Even the 4.30am start to walk up Queenstown Hill was enjoyed. Her newly acquired leadership skills were put to use when one of the attendees was found to have been in close contact with someone with covid and she had to speak to and organise the groups response. There were 40 attendees.
Kaitlin Thanked the Club for making her involvement possible.

What's Up 
Les spoke about the project he had been on and which he continues to be involved with started by the Milton Rotary Club. This is the Milton Rotary Club/ Otago Youth Adventure Trust Tramping Club.  Started by Peter Vollweiler of Milton Rotary but then partnered later with the Youth Adventure Trust they started with organising the Milford Track Walk.  Everything is provided including transport from Dunedin, meals, accommodation and leaders.  From there they expanded to all the local great walks, Bike trips etc.  After a while DOC came down on them and said you cannot make profits while using DOC facilities.  They found their way around this by pricing all the trips at cost but requiring participants to pay (currently) $55 to be a member of the Club. Participants come from all over the country with a large number from the North Island. Les says that over the years he has walked the Milford sixteen times plus many times on other activities. Profit of approx $60,000 is shared between the two organisation and provides great fellowship. The Youth Adventure Trust has facilities at Tautuku, Berwick and Sutton. 
The Bulletin Editor can attest to the quality of the organisation having enjoyed being a participant a few times.

"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess"
Churchill" Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm"
John F Kennedy "Forgive your enemies but never forget their names"
