Geri-Arctics Ellesmere Island Expedition 2019
by Alice Purdy
 

Under the inspiration and leadership of Chris Cooper, seven seniors (ages 64-74 years) enjoyed 30 days in the unique high arctic environment of southern Ellesmere Island. Polar bears, muskox, icebergs, tough little plants, and building their own airstrip for pickup provided some of the highlights. Alice Purdey, a BCMC member since 1965, will be presenting on this adventure at the October social.

 

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