JOTT 2017 – badge designs released

The new badge designs for JOTT 2017 have been released, and NZ samples are being made. The 2017 day hike badge completes the set that we’ve been working on since 2013, an image of which is on this website. No news yet about whether the theme will continue after this year.

The Night Hike badge for 2017 is ALL IN BLACK, referred to by the designer as a “ghost patch”. The released image is in shades of gray so that people get a better general impression.

New Zealand will again run the large size and small size day hike badges, and the small size night hike badges. Prices are being confirmed, the website will be open for orders closer to the event.

JOTT 2017 is two months away, on 13 May. Have you decided where you’re going yet???

Pegasus Bay Zone hosted JOTT On Sunday, 10 May 2015. A day later than the official date, but with another big JOTT event hosted in Christchurch on the Saturday, this gave more options for people to get involved. A wonderful day for a walk. We hoped for 100 badge earners and got 165 on the day, which is fantastic! Happy Mothers’ Day to the Mums who joined us, we hope you enjoyed your Cupcake reward at the end!

I sold 1125 badges to groups all around NZ, which was a fantastic effort! I heard from Groups in Christchurch, Lincoln, Taiaotea, Dairy Flat, Hamilton, Grey Valley, Nelson, Arrowtown, Northdown Te Rangi, Waimate, Rowallan, Cust, Mania-o-Roto, Georgetown, Whitianga and Cambridge. A pretty good range, but I’m sure we can get even more in 2015!
