BCMC Social Event @7:30pm

Valentine's Special: For The Love Of The Mountains

by the BCMC Socials Committee


 In celebration of the upcoming day of love, we are deviating from the traditional presentation-style social, to create a welcoming space where members-both new and old-can meet one another, get to know more about the executive, the club, and share their stories of their love of the mountains (or in the mountains). We want to encourage discussion, and getting to know people from this amazing community, for the love of the mountains.


There will be a special presentation by David Scanlon (Past BCMC President and Spearhuts Committee) on a series of short video's from last month's Watersprite Hut social (that we were not able to view). *David's presentation POSTPONED to March Social* 

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, Febraury 13th. The entrance door will open at 7pm and we will begin the evening at 7:30 PM with an Update from the Executive.  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. Once at capacity we will be forced to turn attendees away. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.
