Honouring a BCMC Legend: Dick Culbert

The Coast Mountains Greatest Explorer


Please join us to honour the life and accomplishments of our distinguished member Dick Culbert in an evening of pictures and stories. Glenn Woodsworth will share glimpses of Dick's many exploratory alpine adventures in the Coast Mountains, his guidebooks, and his trail building to show why Dick is argualbly the most important mountaineer that the BCMC has produced in the last 60 years. 

If you have shared time with Dick in your life and would like to contribute to this evening, please send an email to bcmc.socials -at- gmail.com

The Social Presentation will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, October 12th. The entrance door will open shortly before 7pm and the BCMC Social Presentation is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 135 people in the hall. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.
