Members Club Night
Club Nights were run in 2017/2018 during school terms two and three on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm, using the Auckland Normal Intermediate hall and surrounds. Unfortunately the hall burnt down in January 2019, and the decision was made to discontinue club nights until a suitable replacement was found.
