Welcome to Gore and District Branch of the
The Branch was formed around 1960 and at the same time through negotiations with the Pinckney family, a hunting area on Glenaray Station was set up for members to hunt from March to May each year. Over the years this system has worked very well and is still in place today.
For this privilege we are continuously thankful to the Pinkney Family and Glenaray Management.
We are one of the larger Branches in the country with membership in 2009
of just under 200 senior members.
We also manage and maintain a farm cottage at Luggate in
Our Members are involved in the local volunteer Search and Rescue Organisation. Members can indicate on their subscription form whether or not they wish to be put on the callout list. A couple of training exercises are run every year by SAR. SAR is made up of local groups such as, ‘The southern Trail Blazers Club’, ‘The Hokonui Tramping Club’ and NZDA to name a few.
We have an annual hunting and photo competition which members can enter
heads and photos taken during the last 12 months which is independent of
the National competition.
