BCMC Social Event
Tuesday, February 11th BCMC Social Event
Doors at 7pm, show at 7:30pm
Wapta Traverse - Two ways
by Wayne Pattern
In the early springs of 2018 and 2019 BCMC troops traversed two different routes across the Wapta Icefields: Bow-Balfour-Duncan and Peyto-Guy-Mitchell huts.  Great fun ensued!

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, February 11th. The entrance door will open at 7 pm 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 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.

Visit us on Facebook on Twitter and on Instagram

We'd love to hear from you! If you have recently been on an awesome adventure and you would like to do a presentation at one of our socials, please contact us at socials@bcmc.ca

The BCMC has been a long standing/founding member of the Federation of Mountain Clubs and BCMC members form a large portion of FMC committees.  However, many of us now have concerns regarding our continued membership in the FMC.  A great deal has transpired in the background, and I believe it is time to involve and inform the broader membership.
