BCMC Social Event

Tuesday November 13th BCMC Social Event 


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.
