Every year, Sean and Stephen take all the International Youth Exchange Students and assorted friends and hangers-on to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. We tackle Ruapehu Summit, the Crossing and the fit ones take on Mount Ngauruhoe as a side trip from the Crossing. 

Its a great weekend and a cool way to show the students a special part of New Zealand. 

We stay at a very interesting backpackers in Turangi where the owner is happy for us to decorate the wall with the Rotary Wheel and the names of all the students. We suspect we are not following the RI Style Guide rules for the colour and shape of the Wheel
