Auckland Mid-Winter Dinner

Time: 6:30 pm

Royal NZ Yacht Squadron,
101 Curran Street
Westhaven Marina

The Auckland Branch of the New Zealand Antarctic Society is pleased to invite you to celebrate the winter solstice with our traditional mid-winter Christmas Dinner, where we will be thinking of those currently
at Scott Base (and hopefully a chat through a live video link). We will be toasting the current crew, as well as those who have gone before.

Our after-dinner speaker will be Jenny Hillman, an Auckland University PhD student (pictured left) who will be showing some photos and telling us about a recent scientific expedition she was involved with under the ice of McMurdo Sound, exploring how climate change is affecting the marine biodiversity in Antarctica. Please join us for refreshments and a great Christmas themed meal at the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron, followed by the presentation.

Partners and friends (prospective members!) all welcome.

Event Cost is $54.00 (including Three Course Meal) per person. There is a cash bar – drinks are additional & your cost.
The restaurant prefers one bill, so if possible, please pay into the below account before the evening ($54 per person):
