Club Activities

Our Annual Garden Party incorporates our AGM, fun match event, Ribbon Parade, games, raffles and competitions. We can usually draw around 50-60 Bernese and their families. This has recently been held at the Rotorua Thermal Holiday Park in February/March. This venue is great as it provides accommodation along with great facilities for holding this fun weekend, and more recently we have been incorporating the Battle of the Giants event. We also try to hold a carting event and organise regional get togethers and social outings! Please check out our Facebook page for updates on upcoming events, walks in your area! We will also assist to rescue / rehome any Berner whose circumstances have changed and require a new placement - please contact Linda Jury - All Berner lovers are welcome to join us.
