BCMC Social Event

Tuesday January 9th 7:00pm ANZA Club

BCMC Social Event (Presentation@7:30pm)

The Evolution of Watersprite

by the BCMC Watersprite Building Committee


 In 2017 many hikers, skiers and mountaineers have ventured to visit the sprites and nymphs that inhabit and haunt Watersprite Lake in Garibaldi park thanks to its newly built destination. In this visual and engaging presentation our dedicated volunteers will take you on the journey taken, from the original vision, over many barrels of handmixed cement, arch beam placement, insulating, painting, and mystic lake encounters to its final and proud product.

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, January 9th. The entrance door will open at 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. Once at capacity we will be forced to turn attendees away. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.

It is open for registration to anyone wishing to contribute. https://backcountrybc.ca We are beginning a soft launch now and will fine tune based on feedback...
