Tramping club logos

Tramping club logos

Many tramping clubs have logos, and some produce stickers. The Victoria University Tramping Club (VUTC) logo is a sheep on the top of a peak. This is sometimes drawn by trampers signing the hut books in bush areas close to Wellington. The logos stand for: (top row) Alpine Sports Club, Avon Tramping Club, Christchurch Tramping Club, Heretaunga Tramping Club, (middle row) Napier Tramping Club, Nelson Tramping Club, North Shore Tramping Club, Otago University Tramping Club, (bottom row) Southland Tramping Club, Tararua Tramping Club, Victoria University Tramping Club, Wellington Tramping and Mountaineering Club.
