 Dorothy was always eager to explore new walking country and was a member of several parties which made trips into the little-known parts of the Mountains. Her name frequently appeared on the Club Walks Programme, and those walks were made enjoyable by the information she was able to impart from her knowledge of the bush. Dorothy was always eager to explore new walking country and was a member of several parties which made trips into the little-known parts of the Mountains.

 +The Federation Annual General Meeting is held in July, and is immediately followed, on the same night, by the July Monthly Meeting, presided over by the new President and vested in a new executive. 
 It will therefore be most apparent that our incoming delegates, who would normally make their debut at the August General Meeting, have no opportunity of being elected to fill the official positions (unless their representation ran into a second term). A serious state of affairs has thus been created, and one which has had the automatic effect of almost disbarring our members from the executive, unless a vacancy occurred during the year, or a delegate offered to represent the Club for consecutive years. As the largest affiliated club, and one possessing perhaps the greatest number of conservationists and experienced walkers, we certainly should have our strength felt on the Federation Executive. It will therefore be most apparent that our incoming delegates, who would normally make their debut at the August General Meeting, have no opportunity of being elected to fill the official positions (unless their representation ran into a second term).
