I. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) Norm Wall Climbing Competition
When: Thursday April 19, 7:00 PM
Where: Norm Wall.  Enter through the Norm Theatre
Cost: $5

Jeff has fantastic prizes this year.  4 Alien cams, a full set of DMM
nuts and a set of RPs.  Jeff has requested that everyone show up so
that the prizes get paid for.  The idea is to climb as many of the
(new) routes as possible, in the best style possible, to get the
maximum number of points.  There will be prizes to win even if you
aren't the best climber.  Also music.

2) Beginner Kayak Trip
When: April 21-22
Where: Indian Arm
Wiki: http://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Beginner_Kayak_Trip

This trip is basically entirely organized already.  The VOCene is
looking forward to the trip report.

3) MEC Spring Gear Swap
When: April 28-29
Where: MEC Vancouver store
Wiki: http://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/MEC_Gear_Swap#MEC_Gear_Swap_Spring_2007

MEC is having their spring gear swap again.  They will be selling off
rental gear too.  If you want the good stuff, show up the evening
before, sleep outside MEC and then rush in when it opens Sunday
morning.  Officially it starts at 10:30am.  If you show up then you
won't get anything.  The club will need volunteers to buy for the gear
room too.

II. Recreation and Conservation Update

1) Elk Mountain Trail Rally
When: Sunday April 22, 9:00am
Where: Elk Mountain trailhead
