We had an excellent guided tour of the Whaling Museum at Butler Point, Hihi. A wealth of information about this historic site that reaches right back to the first days of European settlement in New Zealand. Whaling was a dangerous, gruesome and messy business and we are all pleased that it is gone.
Several members had close association with the family and the site which made it all very interesting.
The BOI Classic and Sports Car Club is a friendly group of car enthusiasts who organise a casual event every month to places of interest and frequently with a lunch somewhere.
