Dave gets In a team photo

Should be a lot of fun.

Team Bridgedale Socks NZ hit the snow

Socks NZ. We are really happy about it and so are our feet (we've all

adventures). To celebrate we had a little training outing from Jill's
place in Petone, cycling up to Tunnel Gully and then walking up Mt
Climie to enjoy the snow. Not that we think Tasmania will be that cold,
but after Threbo we just like to be prepared for all conditions.

We are: Jill Westenra, Colin Slater, Dave Rudge and Jerome Sheppard
(and for the next 10 weeks to be addressed as Queenie, Percy, Nursey and
