Stephen Hui, author of 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia, will join us for a slideshow presentation and book signing. He’ll introduce his new guidebook (coming out May 26) and show photos from the HBC (1849) Heritage Trail, Sunshine Coast Trail, and other trips.

 

Published by Greystone Books, 105 Hikes is an all-new follow-up to the classic guide 103 Hikes in Southwestern British Columbia. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the book will go to the BCMC.

 

A limited number of books will be available for sale at the event. For more information, visit: http://105hikes.com

 

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, June 12th. 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.
