Members get approximately four copies of the CMC News (the Club newsletter) per year, the biennial Mountaineer, and either discounted or free accommodation in Club huts. They can also get discounts in Bivouac on presentation of their membership card. And, of course, the knowledge and satisfaction that they are supporting a long tradition of climbing in Canterbury.
