WOW – what can I say but WOW! Our first visit to Oropi hot pools for over a year took place last night and what a great night that was. A huge turnout of over 40 members soaked in the hot pool, with 30 or so of those members dining in the refurbished café and then soaking again. Now that the hot water bore problem has been repaired, we can look forward to many more monthly get-togethers at this fabulous location.

Well I never knew there were so many members of the group that were keen on jumping into a cold pool in the middle of winter! But that was what happened at the annual polar plunge at
over the weekend,
when over 20 members of the group braved the annual mid-winter ‘plunge’. The
weather was a mix of wind gusts, showers and sunny spells but the rain held off
long enough for the madness to happen. The pool temperature was a balmy 14oC,
warmer than last year when it was only 11oC. Katikati Naturist
After the plunge, there was a mad dash into the spa pools and sauna to warm up. All participants then were warmed on the inside with some mulled wine and savouries.
Thanks to those who braved the elements to take part. Happy hour and a shared pot luck dinner followed, which rounded off a great winter activity for the group.
