BCMC Social Event
June 14th Social
1) Climber's Access Society of British Columbia - by Brent Nixon
2) Escape into the Sky - Dion Vuk of iParaglide
7:15 PM - ANZA Club

1)  Brent Nixon will make a short 15 minute presentation on the Climber's Access Society of British Columbia; discussing the organization and current issues they are working on.  Two of these access issues include Goldman Creek Boulders and Deep Cove, North Shore climbing zones in Vancouver (photos above) which are both currently suffering from serious access pressure.

2) Presentation: Escape into the Sky by Dion Vuk

Perhaps you have dreamt of a moment...when you escape the confines of gravity…and take flight to soar high above the tiny, mere mortals below, unaffected by their petty troubles, like some sky god from Greek mythology. 

With paragliding you can.  Join us on a night of Discovery: learning to fly and unleashing the magic of playing in the realm of where mountain meets sky. 

About Dion:
 
Dion is a Civil Engineer who spent his early career as an Environmental Consultant managing contaminated sites and the last 12 years as a Project Manager of large scale construction projects.  
 
Dion founded iParaglide: a Vancouver based Paragliding Flight School, Equipment Distributor and Tour Operator.  Along this voyage he has fulfilled many lifelong dreams including travelling to and flying off hundreds of different mountains in 14 countries worldwide.  He has in excess of 2,600 air hours to date, and is accident free in the sport. He is rated a Senior Paragliding Instructor and enjoys coaching new pilots and instructors, with over 1000 students in 18 seasons of safe operation.  Their enthusiasm and first flight smiles make each training day truly great.

Dion is passionate about fitness, nutrition and just about every kind of outdoor adventure sport.  He also enjoys independent filmmaking and photography.[1] [2]

[1] ... visitors, members and guests. The meeting will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, June 14 2016. The entrance door opens shortly after 7pm and the BCMC Social is scheduled to begin at 7:30pm.
