Doors at 7pm, show at 7:30pm

Hiking in Hokkaido
The Daisetsuzan Traverse and other adventures
by Laura Wong
Laura will present on the opportunities for mountain adventure, winter and summer, in the northernmost island in Japan. She will focus on multi-day trekking opportunities in the Daisetsuzan National Park and share the joys of why it is always worth it to 'ganbatte', 'kiwotsukete', and après onsen.

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, December 10th. 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.

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
