Club Gear

Club gear is managed by the Quartermasters. Club members can borrow gear for free if they leave a deposit. A full VOC gear policy should be made available. Everyone is supposed to do a workhike before borrowing club gear, although exceptions are sometimes made for new members early in the year.


Club gear is maintained by the quartermasters and club members and as such is subject to the time constraints of busy students. This means the gear you receive may not be in the best condition. You must examine and/or test borrowed gear before you take it on a trip. Report damage to the quartermasters. Usually you can earn a workhike by maintaining or repairing the club gear you borrow.


Please return your gear on time if you don't want to join the Wall of shame.

Gear Plan

After many months of discussion and debate, a 5-year plan (2007-2011) has been put forward to revitalize the current gear in the clubroom.

Rental Hours

The current gear hours are:

Monday

12:30 - 13:30
Piotr

Tuesday

12:00 - 13:00
Lee

Wednesday

12:30 - 13:30
Piotr

Thursday

12:00 - 13:00
Lee

Friday

12:00 - 13:00
Lee
12:30 - 13:30
Piotr

If you desperately need gear fast try giving Lee a call; he lives on campus and will help you if he is able.

Current News and Schedule Changes

  • Tues Nov 25 and Fri Nov 28 Lee will not be offering gear hours.
  • Lee may be on a ski trip Dec 11 and 12
