I. Trip Reports

1) Skaha
A VOC contingent went climbing in Skaha and reported good weather
other than the lightning storm.  Andrew celebrated his birthday and
the police were called.  Sounds like a well rounded trip.

2) Phelix
The Phelix Creek road is currently blocked at 0.5km by a landslide.
The hut was still reached however though the trail is starting to melt
out a big.  Snow at 1200m.

3) Galloping Goose
Megan and Greg did this bike tour that starts in Victoria.  Apparently
a relatively easy early season tour.

4) Indian Arm
Phillip, Ruben, Marcin and Sanaz went kayaking in Indian Arm.
Surprisingly, Sanaz bailed after lunch.  Apparently that wasn't such a
bad idea however, due to the rainy conditions.  The others camped in
the wet and returned the next day.

5) Vantage
Some more people went climbing in Vantage.  Good weather.  The wiki
has been updated with new information regarding the required parking
pass.

6) Brew
Brew was reached in under 17.5 hours, though it sounds like it was the
usual whiteout conditions.  The road was driven almost to the bridge
over Roe Creek.
