by the BCMC Executive

followed by...

Avalanche Awareness Night

by Abby Cooper, Phil Alma, Polina Andreychenko

 

Doors @7:00 PM ANZA Club

Social Event @7:30 PM

 

The night will begin with the annual BCMC Annual General Meeting, followed by a talk from Abby Cooper, an Avalanche Ambassador for Avalanche Canada. Abby will present on the Mt. Harvey incident that occurred on April 8, 2017. Afterwards, there will be trivia, prizes, and beer!


"The Mt. Harvey case study will focus on learning outcomes that occurred from a tragedy in familiar terrain. Five snowshoers died that day. We hope to help educate more "summer" recreationists, or new backcountry enthusiasts, about the winter backcountry hazards so this scenario does not occur in the future."
 

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, November 13th. The entrance door will open at 7 pm and we will begin the evening at 7:30 PM with the AGM and 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 117 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.

Tuesday October 9th BCMC Social Event

 

The BCMC Summer Camp Adventures

by Dean Chamberland

 

Doors @7:00 PM ANZA Club

Social Event @7:30 PM

 

Dropped at the northern edge of the Pemberton Icefield for 9 days, sixteen strangers worked together and overcame challenging terrain, collapsed bridges over rushing creeks, and seemingly impassable cliffs. After much blood, sweat and fears, they collectively summited every peak in the area and created new friendships in the process. Shins and hands were cut, ankles were sprained, shoes worn out and equipment broken. There were rewards before fate added some final-day drama : hot spring soaking, great food and conversations, and a sold-out farewell concert on the eve of an overdue helicopter extraction when forest fires abruptly threatened the camp. Hear the stories first hand and view the best photos and videos at the October 9th BCMC Social
